Myth: you don’t need to moisturize if you have oily skin

No matter what your skin type is, you need to use a moisturizer to keep your skin balanced and nourished. It may seem counterintuitive, but applying a moisturizer is still vital for nourishing and hydrating the skin. If you deprive your skin of moisture, it will overcompensate in oil production which can lead to clogged pores and acne breakouts. A lighter product such as a hydrating serum or lotion is more compatible for oily skin versus a heavy cream.

In addition, you’ll want to ensure that the moisturizer is made for your skin type and enriched with lightweight yet effective ingredients that can hydrate the skin without causing it to react and produce excess sebum. A popular choice would be a product that contains hyaluronic acid, an acid which is produced by our own skin cells. However, aging and environmental exposure to pollutants and UV light can cause a decrease in your body’s amount of HA. Hyaluronic acid is lightweight and can attract moisture to the skin without clogging pores, resulting in softer, smoother, more supple-looking skin.

Amerejuve Med Spa offers a wide range of medical grade skincare products to suit your skin type and needs. Skin Medica’s best seller HA5 contains a proprietary mix of five different types of hyaluronic acids and works synergistically to provide immediate smoothing and continuous hydration throughout the day. We also carry the Hydrating Serum from the Revision skincare line which contains HA, fruit extracts and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
