Moisturizer with SPF- Is it necessary?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, first I wanted to say thanks for all the helpful people around the site. I'm going into my fourth month on the regimen, and I'm not completely clear, but instead of getting 5 zits a day I've been getting maybe 2 or 3 a week. Its working slowly but surely, but...

I had a quick question. I use AHA on my face every other night. I know AHA makes your skin sensitive to light, but do I need a moisturizer with SPF in it during the day? I don't apply AHA before I go out; only before bed. I wash it off in the morning. It might be worth noting I'm fair skinned and have a lot of red spots I'm currently trying to get rid of.

The only reason I ask is because the SPF moisturizer I've been using for the last month is extremely greasy and its been making me wonder if its necessary to go through with an oily face when I might not need to. I used Neutrogena Sensitive Skin prior to Neutrogena SPF 15 and it worked fine, I guess.

Any insight? :surprised:
