Why you should moisturize your oily skin

| Olivia Sandström

´s Skin Therapist Lina explains:
Why you should moisturize your oily skin 

Why should I moisturize even if I have oily or acne prone skin? 
-  It's important to keep your skin moisturized in order to keep the skin's protective barrier healthy and intact. If the skin barrier doesn't function properly it's easier for bacterias to get a hold an cause infections and inflammations in the skin. Moisture combined with hydration improves the skin barrier which results in healthy, balanced skin.

Why is it important not to dry out oily skin? 
- The skin barrier needs both moistue and hydration in order to stay healthy. If you you try to balance your oily skin by using too strong products, it will answer by producing even more sebum to prevent dehydration. Gentle and moisturizing products are the perfect match for oily skin, while too strong products damage the skin barrier and cause unbalanced skin. Always remember to keep your skin hydrated  regardless of skin type


How do moisture work to balance oily skin?
- Our skin always need moisture, so make sure to always moisturize even if you have oily skin. The right kind of moisture and hydration combined with a regular skincare routine will keep your skin balanced. Use a kind and gentle facial cleanser such as Clean & Calm - Facial Cleanser and follow up with The Cream Facial Cream from the same series. This 24 hour facial creme enriched with Hyaluronic Acid locks in moisture, while  Squalane strengthens the skin barrier.
