Should People with Acne Prone Skin Use Moisturizer?

Should People with Acne Prone Skin Use Moisturizer?

Posted in Adult Acne, Teenage Acne by . | Leave a Comment
The answer is yes, absolutely.  Many patients with acne prone skin skip moisturizing because they feel that the more they “dry out” their skin, the fewer acne lesions they will have.  The truth is that some acne patients do have excessive oil production from their sebaceous glands; however, this does not  result in moisturized skin.  Many acne medications, even over-the-counter spot treatments can be irritating, so it is important to keep acne-prone skin hydrated.

Dr. Schweiger notes that, “Once patients with acne prone skin realize that they need to be moisturizing regularly, they often have difficulty finding the best moisturizer for their skin type.  It is important that patients with acne-prone skin look for moisturizers with the phrases “non-comedogenic” or “non-acnegenic” on the label.  These phrases indicate that the moisturizer has been proven not to contribute to the formation of acne.”  Many of our patients prefer the moisturizing sunscreen Elta UV Clear for daily use and Cerave lotion for evening use.  Both products have been proven not to contribute to the formation of new acne.
