I Have Oily Skin. Can I Still Moisturize?

I Have Oily Skin. Can I Still Moisturize?

More often than not, if you suffer from oily skin, you might contemplate skipping the moisturizing process in fear that adding an extra layer of substance to your skin will make you break out. However, if you apply the correct moisturizer and understand a few simple rules, you’ll realize that is not the case.

In fact, it might surprise some to know that oily skin needs to be moisturized and may reduce the sebum production – oil production from your Sebaceous Glands – to provide you with better looking skin.

In addition to overlooking the moisturizing step, you might tend to think that washing your face everyday with a cleanser will peel away the look of oil. If over-cleansing is a habit, it’s important to understand that by stripping away at the skin each day could enhance oil production, instead of stopping it. Additionally, you will want to recognize how the right moisturizer can really work on improving oily skin.

How do moisturizers really work?

First and foremost, moisturizers work to keep water in your skin to prevent dryness. By eliminating the process of water loss and moisture from your skin, your sebaceous glands will start to slow their oil production. This alone tells you that oily skin is not excess moisture in your skin, rather a response to the lack there of.

With that being said, moisturizers are designed to do one of three things: soften and smooth the skin, repair the skin, or attract moisture from within deeper layers of skin.

However, it’s good to keep in mind that there are still a few types of moisturizers out there that should be avoided for oily skin sufferers. These typically fall under ‘occlusive’ (a category used to identify specific types of moisturizers), which can consist of petroleum jelly, paraffin and collagen. These have the tendency to be more on the greasy and thick side.

What types of moisturizers can I use?

You now understand why a moisturizer can help you, but how do you narrow it down from there? To make it simple, keep in mind that it’s best to stick with more lightweight, natural products. These are more likely to help keep you skin feeling fresh and help turn-around the oil production process.

Look for moisturizers that also say non-greasy as they are designed more towards oily skin.

The point of a moisturizer on oily skin is to help regulate and slow down oil production to coincide with your face washing routine. Try to avoid buying and applying thick creams, as these are typically not intended for oily skin.

Additionally, keeping up a specific daily skincare routine may help speed up the process to better looking skin.

If your oily skin is producing a lot of blemishes consider washing your face, then applying any acne medication followed by a lightweight moisturizer.
