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

Acne & Scars
DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

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!

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.
