If you find your skin becoming more greasy or acne prone as the days turn warmer, you may ask yourself if you even need a moisturizer for your oily skin. Is it necessary to add any more moisture to the oil that seems to be pooling on your forehead? At Eminence Organics we say, “Yes!” Here are some skin-saving facts on why warm days affect your skin, why you still need to hydrate, and what are the best moisturizers for oily skin:
True Or False? Warm Weather Makes Oily Skin Even More Oily
True. When you have oily skin, warm days not only turn up the heat but also open the floodgates to oil production. That’s because heat stimulates the oil glands, kicking them into overdrive as we enter spring and summer. To cool down the complexion, Eminence Organics President Boldijarre Koronczay recommends this handy skin care trick: Keep your masks and moisturizers in the fridge. “Applying products directly from the refrigerator will keep your skin temperature lower," advises Boldijarre, "thereby reducing excess oil production.”
True Or False? You Need A Moisturizer, Even For Oily Skin
True. Even oily skin needs a daily moisturizer, and there’s a good reason why. If you withhold moisture from your skin - or even worse, dry it out with harsh products - sebaceous glands will try to compensate by pumping out even more oil (Self). Break the unhappy cycle of oil production by hydrating your skin - choose a moisturizer that works for your skin type, keeping your complexion balanced and feeling soft.
