Whether you have dry skin or oily skin, moisturizing it with the right moisturizer is necessary. There are millions of moisturizers available to chose from but finding the one that suits your skin perfectly is the tricky part. Once you have found a moisturizer that fits your skin type you will see the results yourself. A good moisturizer leaves your skin smooth and glowing whereas a wrong one can result in breakouts.
“You should still use a daily moisturizer,” says CareMount Medical dermatologist Melanie A. Warycha.
Generally, people with oily skin tend to skip the moisturizers as they think that it is the cause of oil production. However, it is otherwise.
“Sometimes your glands produce more oil than normal because it’s dehydrated,” says Vanessa Marc, celebrity aesthetician and owner of Vanessa Marc Spa.
