Newb Question: Is moisturizing neccessary?

Recommended Posts

Basically my skins not too oily because I take ACV internally, nor is it too too dry. However, after I shower and baby brush at night and use cleanser and put some differin on there can be some dry/flaky-ness on my left cheek where I have acne that never seems to heal and small whiteheads that appear in the same spots on it. In the morning after cleanser only it doesn't seem too dry, just a little flaky maybe. Perhaps it's not healing because of dryness? I have a bottle of cetaphil gentle skin moisturizer, should I just dab some on?

What does dry/flaky areas DO to your skin? Dead skin cell build up (which should be gone because I baby brush at night, maybe I should in morning too), or what?

I certainly don't think using Cetaphil in the morning would cause a problem. I would try it and see what happens before trying the baby brush twice daily. Might be too much. Maybe someone with more Differin experience give you a better answer.

Cetaphil moisturizers break me out, so I stopped using them. I know a lot of my small whiteheads are caused by dead skin buildup in my pores, so I'm careful to moisturize, but only when I need it. Since my skin can get oily, I can go most days without needing moisturizer.

Moisturizing is not 'necessary,' but regardless of how great your skin is I would highly recommend it as a future investment in your skin's future.
