Does oily skin need a moisturizer?

Most people with oily skin believe that they don’t need to moisturize their skin. Well, it’s a myth.

The truth is, for those with oily skin, you DO need a moisturizer.

For your skin to be healthy, it needs both hydration and oil. Sebum- the oil produced naturally by your oil gland- plays a role in retaining moisture in your skin. When your skin is dehydrated, excess sebum may be secreted in order to keep water from evaporating and to maintain the barrier function of the skin.

Moisturizing your skin properly would therefore reduce the chance of excess sebum production, and thus the risk of breakouts.

Here are some moisturizers that are great for oily skin.


Effaclar Duo (+)

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo is an anti-acne & pimples treatment moisturiser formulated with Niacinamide for oily acne-prone skin. It helps rapidly clear existing spots, prevent their reappearance and limit the risk of marks. The gel-cream texture leaves skin with non-greasy and matte finish. The effaclar is allergy tested, non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin.



Hydrating Water Gel 

The light weight and fast absorbing water gel is suitable for combination and oily skin. It contains Hyaluronic Acid that deeply penetrates into skin to hydrate and restore skin’s moisture barrier and prevent moisture lost, so that the skin is smooth and plumped after use.
