Would it be okay if I cut off Moisterizing entirely?

My face never gets dry. NEVER. Not even when I cleanse or apply BP. Not even after several hours. I've already tried it before, on accident that is. And I've noticed my face doesn't feel rough, nor do I get flakes like many people here complain about. So would it be ok if I didn't even do it at all? It would save a lot of time, effort, and money for me. But I don't really care about those things if my acne suffers because of it.

I would experiment and do it for a week or so, but I don't like going through these temporary breakouts. So has there been any success stories of not using the moisturizer?

why would cutting off moisturizing make your acne worse if your skin isnt dry? i personally dont think dry skin even contributes to acne anyways (moisturizing is just really to make your skin feel good), and i would definitely cut out moisturizing if i were in your position.

it seems by your little "tests," though, that you are just experiencing short term results. i often note that my skin, like yours, will stay moisturized for a little while after cutting out lotion. after some time, though, it returns back to dry.

so go ahead, test it out. a few days is really all you need to see if the results will last or not.

Well, I don't use moisturiser at night after BP. So I believe it is ok to cut off moisturiser completely. But you will still need sunblock in the day.
