Best Moisturizers for Combination-Oily Skin | Skincare Review

 

Ever since I started taking care of my skin, its been a challenge to find the perfect moisturizer for oily skin. For the longest time, I did not even realise that my oily skin needed a moisturizer. Many women are under the misconception that if they have oily skin, they do not need moisturizer. The truth is, everyone needs moisturizer, you just need the texture and formula suited for your skin type! Moisture/Hydration is different from oil/sebum and if your skin is oily, it doesn’t imply that it is hydrated. Low levels of moisture in the skin leads to overproduction of oil, as the skin tries to compensate for the lack of water. To maintain healthy, balanced skin, its important to hydrate the skin and not strip it dry.

Oily skinned people need to use light-weight moisturizers in the form of lotions, emulsions or gels and should stay away from heavier creams which may clog the pores and lead to pimples and blackheads. My skin oscillates between combination and oily and every once in a while, I get a few angry breakouts that refuse to budge for days. So I’ve tested out a boat load of moisturizers over the past few months and compiled this list of oily skin-friendly moisturizers. I hope you will find this compilation helpful!

Skincare Wednesday : My Current Skincare Routine | Skincare for Oily-Acne prone Skin

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m talking about my Current skin care routine which I’ve following since the past 2 weeks or so. All through last month, I was having breakouts on my cheeks and jaw line and while tea tree oil helped a bit, they kept recurring. I recently discovered La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo which was lying in my stash unused since last winter and within a week of using it, my breakouts are gone and my skin looks wonderful! I will use it for some more time before I review but so far, its been a fabulous product!
