How often should you moisturize your acne??

Recommended Posts

Is it better to use moisturizer after every shower. Or is it better to use only when really needed(when skin starts to feel too tight and is about to start turning red)? Please respond because i did not moisturize today and my skin feels very tight and uncomfortable but looks much better. It is not red yet and i was wondering if i should only moisturize when it gets red.

PS. i have used clear aloe vera gel and Avenio so i dont think it is the type of moisturizer i use that is maybe prolonging my acne

I usually moisturize when my skin feels dry or tight.

I use a facial moisturizer on my back that doesn't clog pores during the day, if I need it.

Its not necessary to moisturize everyday after washing, but you can.

The only times you really should put on a moisturizer is when you skin feels dry or tight, and of course, when spending time out in the sun use one with an SPF of 15 or higher.
