Have you ever experienced a dry, dehydrated feel even though your skin is more the shiny, oily type? How can that happen?
Perhaps it's the harsh, stripping products you're using to remove that excess sebum that contributes to breakouts. The truth is you can create a vicious circle by over-stripping with alkaline cleansers, salicylic acid or other products targeted to oily, breakout prone skin. Oil is not moisture and oily skin still needs moisture. You wouldn't water a plant with oil, and you can't expect your skin to be hydrated with oil either.
What works for oily skin? Hyaluronic acid, the skin's own moisture system, is one great product for oily skin. Hyaluronic acid loves water and each molecule will bind a thousand times its weight in water to the skin. Look for products that have both aloe vera and hyaluronic acid. This combination is a great way to hydrate and soothe the skin. Aloe vera also works as a delivery system for the hyaluronic acid.
If you use the right products, there's no reason you can't have the best of both worlds; fewer breakouts and a much needed "drink" for your skin.
