All skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin, will benefit from using a moisturizer. Keeping the skin hydrated is essential for all skin types. Applying a daily moisturizer will seal in the treatment products previously used and form a protective barrier on the skin.
Choose the appropriate moisturizer based on your skin type:
Oily to combination
Oily skin types should use an oil-free formulated moisturizer. When there is too much oil in the skin or not enough, the skin will go into overdrive or malnourishment mode and either over-produce or under-produce oil. Using a moisturizer will help keep the skin balanced and hydrated. You may also want to select a water-based matte moisturizer, which will help regulate shine and oil while still providing hydration.
Normal to dry
If your skin is normal to dry you may prefer an oil-based moisturizer with essential oils or botanicals that will condition and hydrate the skin. Ingredients like shea butter, avocado, and olive oil will moisturize the skin and prevent dryness.
