Should You Really Skip Moisturing If You Have Oily Skin?

I’m Judge Makeup Tips and  I’m about to bust you for believing one of the biggest beauty myth’s out; you now have the right to moisturise.

“Honey you shouldn’t moisturise if you have acne or oily skin ” said your grandmother, mother and aunty. Your family members might be right about loads of things but when it comes to the whole “Don’t moisturise on oily skin” saga they couldn’t be more wrong. It doesn’t seem logical to put even MORE moisture on your skin if it is already oily enough to fry something in but you could actually be achieving a reverse effect. By not moisturising your skin can actually end up over-producing oil to compensate for the moisture it isn’t getting, which means your skin can end up 10x oilier! This can also happen with harsh, sulfate based cleansers. Opt for a gentle, sulfate free foaming cleanser (or a cleansing oil) and use a light, oil free moisturiser daily.

BEAUTY MYTH: BUSTED! Not moisturising can actually make your skin oilier, case dismissed.
