In Topic: No Moisturizer Works For My Oily Face

Hello, everyone,

 

So, what the title says, no moisturizer works for me! They all make me greasy and more oily no matter how "matte" or for "oily skin" they are, they just make me shine and greasy for the rest of the day. I'm starting to giving up. Some work better, obviously, but they all make me greasy at the end of the day.

 

Yep, so stop using them.

I'll pay you $100 if you find someone with bad skin who doesn't wash or moisturize it. Think about it - what is bad skin but damaged skin? What is more likely to damage it, the things you put in your mouth or the things you rub directly into your face? When you get something in your eye, the worst thing to do is rub it, as that just irritates it and makes it worse. When you pick a scab it bleeds and takes longer to heal. Why would the skin on your face be any different? The reason some people find success switching to a gentle cleanser and very gently massaging it in has more to do with their gentle approach than the cleanser. They would be just as successful without the cleanser at all.

I am 100% confident that acne is caused by over-cleansing. Especially if face wash or soaps are used, but even if just water and finger tips are used too often or too harshly, or if the water is hot.

 

My face gets very dirty, sweaty, oily, dusty, etc. etc. all day at work but I've been just rinsing in the shower once a day and my skin has never looked better.

 

Internally, I think the only thing that can affect your skin is actual allergic reactions to food. If it makes your face flush and/or itch, I could see that inflammation leading to bad skin.
