I have really oily skin! Especially on my nose, cheeks, and forehead.
Is it a good idea to apply moisturiser to my already oily skin, or to just leave it and apply no extra moisture?
Apply moisturiser but minimal amount and maybe look at getting a moisturiser for oily skin
Good idea, thanks :)
Yes you need one for oily skin try Clinique gel moisturiser xx
Yes, def. skipping moisturizer can cause your skin to become dehydrated and produce MORE oil to make up for the deficit.
yes! I started using argan oil and found it even reduced how oily my tzone wad

Yes, even oily skin needs moisture. Probably even more so because usually oily skin is oily because its dehydrated. I started using maracuja oil as my night time moisturizer and its doing wonders for my skin. I don't have as many breakouts anymore and when I wake up my skin is soft and not slick. Its been so worth the $46 I paid for it. I use Tarte's brand which is why its so pricey. But they have a small rollerball for $17. You could try argan oil as someone else mentioned as well, but I love the maracuja.
Cetaphil oily skin cleanser works!!
Oily skin can become dehydrated so its important to moisturise with a light lotion.
oil-free moisturizer combination skin by neutrogena is a good moisturizer for oily skin!
Thanks everyone! :)
If you don't use a moisturizer, your skin will start producing even more oil than it normally would in order to compensate for the dehydration you'd cause if you skip moisturizing. By using a moisturizer, over time your skin will start producing less and less oil because you're already hydrating it with a (and I'll say it again) moisturizer. I had a very oily t-zone for most of my life until I started using almond oil. Safflower oil is also good and so is argan oil. My face is arguably more matte than it used to be.
Yes I agree with Sabah. I have very oily skin in the same areas and I use cry aphid products its been working great
I recommend Clinique's moisturizing gel. I have oily skin and I love it. Trust me even for us oily girls moisturizing is very important and you'll definitely notice a difference with your skin's look and feel.
Oil free moisturisers!!! Theres one by Neutrogena and its great.
