How to choose the right moisturizer for acne prone skin
you have dry skin, it is obvious to apply lotions or creams to add moisture.
However, people who have acne prone skin specifically oily, assume that this
application is not needed. Did you know that this is a common mistake?
Moisturization is needed especially for those who use medicated creams. Excess
oil and clogged pores are reasons for those acne breakouts. Not all lotions
will clog your pores. Here's a helpful guide to choosing the right skin
moisturizer for your acne prone skin.
1. What are moisturisers
are lotions, creams, or gels which help to keep the skin moist. People with
very dry skin should utilise a moisturiser for regular use to battle dryness.
Moisturizers keep the skin from getting too dry and help to shield the skin
2. Match your moisturiser with your skin type!
in the skin products aisle, each moisturizer will show to be better than the
next. Let’s not take you to chemistry class with all the specific ingredients.
However, the texture of the moisturizer is what you need to look for as this is
what your face needs.
Creams are usually sold in pots which is ideal for dry skin such as eczema.
They are heavier than lotions and are more effective at moisturizing and
protecting the skin. They consist of a water and oil emulsion. Before going to
bed, apply night creams as they are richer in oils. Ensure that you are not
wearing make-up before bed.
Gels are usually sold in a squeezable tube, perfect for normal, combination and
oily skin. They are typically the lightest and oil-free moisturizers. This
makes it perfect for skins that are oily or prone to breakouts. They contain
the lowest concentrations of emulsifiers, waxes and oils. Once your gel
moisturizer is dry it becomes a perfect background for your make-up. This is
good tool during summer when you a more likely to sweat.
Lotions can be found in a bottle that is excellent for normal or combination
skin. Lotions are quite light moisturizers that take in directly into the skin
and usually do not feel greasy. They will be richer than a gel, but not as rich
as a cream.
note that the heavier the moisturizer, the better it will fight water loss. On
the other hand, they too can clog pores with oil, bacteria, and trapping dirt,
which may produce breakouts. To treat acne and keep it from coming back is to

3. The Ideal moisturiser
choosing the ideal moisturizer one must first understand the guidelines of the
type to use depending on your dryness, the area to cover and of course your
preference. A moisturizer is more than just a cream but to add moisture to dry
- Read Labels! Do not miss or forget
this important step! Look out for bold labels of oil-free and noncomedogenic or
non-acnegenic as this is best for fighting oily skin or acne breakouts.
Oil-free products don't have added oils that can leave a greasy feel to the skin.
Noncomedogenic products are much less likely to clog the pores and cause
- Mild skin dryness. A lotion or cream is
- Moderate to severe
A thicker cream or lotion is usually best.
- Hairy skin. A lotion is often best
for those areas.
- Fewer germs! Pump dispensers are
preferable than pots since they are more averse to accommodate germs. Use a
clean spoon or spatula to get the contents out, rather than just your fingers
if a pot is needed or preferred.
- Natural moisturizing

moisturizers such as green tea,
pomegranate, chamomile, or liquorice root extract may help keep any skin
type looking fresh and healthy.
