Moisturizer After Cleansing Gel

Hello guys, I'm basically new to acne so I need your help.

I wanted to know whether it's a good thing to put on moisturizer even though I already have oily skin. I cleanse my face twice a day with some mandelic acid-based cleansing gel, which scrubs a little as well and then you need to rinse it off. However, I've noticed that, while remarkably reducing the oiliness and flakiness of my nose and forehead, it also makes them very dry... So I decided to put on some moisturizer after its use. Is it okay or is it gonna worsen my acne?

Oh I almost forgot, I'm 17 and male.

Thanks in advance

Applying moisturiser will definitely help your skin as long as you get the right one. If you're using a face wash that dries out your skin you definitely need to moisturise because otherwise your skin will just become dry and irritated which won't help your acne at all. Try to find a fairly light one that's labelled "non-comedogenic" and "oil-free". If you search "moisturizer" in the forums you'll probably find some threads where people recommend ones that they've had success with.
