How Important Is It To Moisturise Your Skin?

Hydrate and treat with Mentholatum Acnes

For those with acne-prone skin, the most common question asked is, of course, how to treat acne. But there’s also that question about moisturising and whether you should moisturise if you have acne-prone or oily skin. For some, the idea of adding rich moisturisers to their routine might equate to oiliness, which may then lead to breakouts.


The truth? Your skin might be oily but it can still lack hydration. If your skin is dehydrated, it may have a tendency to produce more oil that could then clog your pores and cause more acne, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. So yes, moisturisation for your acne-prone skin is just as important as targeted treatments.
