Dermalogica has just launched the NEW Cooling Aqua Jelly in their Clear Start Range - a new controlling, skin-refining jelly moisturiser for breakout-prone skins. Because, yes, even oily skin needs hydration!
But... wouldn't moisturisers make an oily skin even oilier?
No, they wouldn't!
It's a common misconception that moisturising breakout-prone skin clogs the pores, leads to more breakouts, and makes oily skin oilier.
This misconception about oily, breakout-prone teenage skins is based on the fact that thick, traditional moisturisers can leave skin feeling heavy or looking shiny. In reality, oily skin still needs hydration, especially when using acne-fighting ingredients that can sometimes be over-drying.
