When I went to makeup school, my teacher taught me the science behind oily skin. She said oil is being produced when your skin is dehydrated, so it's making up for the lack of moisture. Night creams penetrate the skin vs moisturizers stay on top.
My skin is flaky yet oily. I hate it! I started using a night cream and that helped my oil a lot. I get a few little pimples from the night cream, I think I used too much. I tried cutting the usage down to a few times a week. Go to sephora or a department store and try a good one. You can always return if it doesn't help! I saw improvement right away; my pores looked so much better, my makeup wasn't sliding off my face anymore, no more flaky skin.
Note; you only use a small amount of night cream. A small pea size for the entire face.
