One of the most common myths surrounding excessively oily skin is that it doesn’t need to be moisturised as often as any other skin type. This is just that though- A MYTH- and moisturising should be just as important a part of the skin care regime as it would be with any other skin type.
The problem with oily skin is that it’s often a problem which needs to be controlled throughout the duration of the day, so it’s easy to see why many people will try anything to keep it at arm’s length- even skipping what is one of the most essential parts of the skin care regime.
Whilst it’s true that you shouldn’t just use any old generic moisturiser on oily skin, this certainly doesn’t translate into not using a moisturiser altogether. Instead, you just need to invest in a moisturiser which has been designed specifically for the skin type.
As a general rule of thumb, oil-based moisturisers are a no-no for excessively oily skin, and it’s better to use an oil-free product like Dermalogica Active Moist.
Dermalogica Active Moist is a beautifully lightweight oil-free moisturiser which keeps oily skin sufficiently hydrated yet won’t promote even the slightest bit of shininess- perfect!
