It’s a common misconception that drying out your skin will help clear up your acne. But what really happens is your body produces more oil to compensate for the lack of oil it feels on your skin. Our bodies are pretty smart like that. So what you’re really doing by zapping all the oils on your face is contributing the breakout problem. Oils can actually be good for the skin–they help hydrate and protect it. When you have acne-prone skin, the trick is to find a lightweight moisturizer that is non-comedogenic and apply it twice a day after you cleanse your skin.
