Whether it’s due to genetics or larger pore size, acne-prone skin breaks out more easily than others. But never fear! Using the right moisturizer will help you say peace out to your breakout. A moisturizer can also be helpful any time your skin feels dry, such as during these last few months of the year. When your skin becomes dry, your body makes more oil. The extra oil can clog your pores, which may lead to more breakouts. The right moisturizer can prevent your skin from becoming dry and irritated.
The key to getting on board with the idea of moisturizing oily skin is recognizing this skin-care truth: Hydrated skin is healthy skin. Indeed, dehydrated skin can lead to issues like inflammation, a cause of premature skin aging, and even breakouts. When your skin becomes dry, your body responds by making more oil—and this extra oil can clog pores, leading to more pimples. Many people confuse oil with hydration, but the role of moisturizers is to improve skin’s hydration by adding water to it. That’s the reason the first ingredient listed on moisturizers is usually water.
The best time to apply moisturizer for acne-prone skin is right after washing your face. Gently blot your skin with a clean towel, but leave a bit of excess water, so your skin feels damp. Then apply your moisturizer. This will help to lock in much-needed water.Acne-prone skin can be hard to control, especially when it comes to your hormones and your diet.
