HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MOISTURIZER FOR OILY SKIN.

I talked about Acne treatment last week and Acne cleanser the week before. Today am going to talk about why you need to moisturize, regardless of your skin type..

Moisturising is an essential step to a flawless looking skin regardless of your skin type. Our skin needs hydration from inside-out. We can get this hydration by drinking plenty of water which will keep it hydrated internally and by moisturizing to help your skin stay normal..

ONE of the common mistake people with oily skin make is “skip moisturizer”, and that is a beauty blunder. People who have oily skin have over-active oil glands. Cleansing and acne treatment takes off the oily layer on our skin and when the skin isn’t moisturised, it feels dry, deprived of oil and gets irritated therefore causing your skin to produce more oil which causes acne.

Don’t underestimate how drying acne treatments can be. It can quickly take your skin from oily to uncomfortably dry, peeling, and flaking. Using a moisturizer daily is the best defense to help ease these side effects.

Having said that, the crucial part of this step is knowing the right moisturizer to use for your skin type. There are many moisturizing products that are created especially for oily skin types. These products are light, fast absorbing, and don’t leave your skin feeling like an oil slick.

If you have oily or combination skin, you definitely can’t use the same moisturizer as someone with dry skin. A person who has dry skin can opt for a hydrating moisturiser with a cream base. On the other hand, people with oily skin should opt for oil-free and lightweight moisturizer (I prefer gel to cream) which hydrates the skin yet does not add the oil back into it. So many brands offer oil-free moisturizers.

Here are some great oil-free moisturizers you can check out.

So, don’t be afraid to moisturize your oily skin, you can still benefit from the use of a daily moisturizer. Just make sure you take the time to choose the right moisturizer by reading ingredient labels and asking your dermatologist for recommendation. If you have oily skin,I would recommend you search for oil free gel moisturizers, because they sink in quickly without leaving any shine. And read reviews on any one you wish to get..

NOTE – Your day time moisturizer should have in it SPF or apply SPF after moisturizing, to protect you from Sun..
