Soooo... how do I hydrate it? I already drink lotsa water daily and I don't want to use moisturizer. I want to keep my skin care routine as simple as possible.

when your skin is dehydrated your skin produces more oil to compensate it, some derms say that moisturizer must not be included but latest evidence tells the contrary, which means you must use a moisturizer, dry skin is not good whatsoever on acne treatment

Oh, they do. In face, it's the first ingredient. I'm not going to use it anymore. Just going to use all natural cleansing wipes.

The alcohols to be concerned about in skin-care products are ethanol, denatured alcohol, ethyl alcohol, methanol, benzyl alcohol, isopropyl, and SD alcohol, which can be extremely drying and irritating to skin, as well as capable of generating free radical damage.
