Hello beauties! The dilemma faced by most oily skin people is whether or not to moisturize their skin after cleansing. And if you’re one of those people, I will tell you that you ABSOLUTELY need to moisturize your face. You need to use the best moisturizer for oily skin.
Oily skin works in a funny way. When you moisturize your skin, it produces less oil. And when you choose not to, Your skin produces more oil to make up for the moisture lost. So you see, Moisturizing is extremely important for oily skin.
So What do you look for in a moisturizer for oily skin/ acne prone skin? You probably know that you need a oil-free moisturizer. But I’m going to go further than that and share with you 3 of the main ingredients you should look for, when choosing the right moisturizer for your oily skin. They are:
Dimethicone: It mimics oil, by leaving the skin feeling healthy and matte after use. Dimethicone is the most commonly used ingredient in oil-free moisturizers.
Hyaluronic Acid: It is a very hydrating and a non-clogging ingredient that should be included your oily skin moisturizer.
Niacinamide: Niacinamide bolsters the skin barrier, stimulating the natural production of collagen. It also strengthens the outer layer of skin and increases its surface renewal rate to help reverse the appearance of damage, such as hyperpigmentation and large pores.
Now that you know what to look for in your moisturizer. It’s also very important to remember to moisturize your skin while it’s still damp from the shower or after a face wash. Popular practice has it that everyone moisturize after drying. But that actually defeats the purpose of moisturizing. In order to hydrate your skin, you need to start with water on your skin, or mix water with your moisturizer. So keep that in mind when moisturizing.
Here are my 4 top pick for oily skin moisturizers:
