DXD Admin from Singapore asked a question

Do I need to use a moisturiser if I have oily skin?

For my skincare routine I mainly use salicylic facial wash, toner, spf in the morning. Night routine will be facial wash and toner only.

I’ve been doing this regime for about 4 months now and my oil production significantly improved. I’m an acne sufferrer and in the afternoon I tend to get really oily on my t-zone. Instead of using moisturiser+sunscreen, I used sunscreen only in the AM.  I’ll only be using moisturisers post treatment such as Lasers.

Long term, will it affect my skin if I did not use moisturiser? for oily or combination oily skin

Dear Trisya,

Thank you for your question. I personally believe in applying light moisturisers even for oily skin types, definitely so for combination skin types as well. Skin that is appropriately moisturised actually can normalise oil production. The key is finding an appropriate product to use.

Our skin keeps changing with age, so what works now may not work later on. For example, skin moisture decreases with age so good quality moisturisers or serums help a lot with that.

I don’t think not using moisturiser now will have long term ill effects on the skin. Neglecting your sunblock can result in that though, so remember to always reapply!

Hope this helps!

Dear Trisya,

As Dr Chua has eluded, moisturising your skin is important, even more so for oily/combination skin types because it can help reduce sebum production preventing acne.

May I suggest moisturising your skin after toning, both morning and night. 

That being said, if your current skin care regime has worked excellent for you, you may want to stick to status quo. (:

With warm regards.
