Q: Should I be using moisturizer if I have acne prone skin? Won’t it just make my acne worse?
A: Absolutely you should! While it’s easy to think that because you have acneic skin putting a moisturizer over it will cause more acne, but that’s not the case. If you are using tough cleansers and exfoliating regularly, but aren’t using a proper moisturizer you are compromising your skins natural moisture barrier. Not only that but because your skin is drying out because you’ve stripped off that barrier, your oil glands will begin to over produce. This of course can lead to more acne. The best thing to do is find a light weight moisturizer specifically for acneic skin.
