Post Should oily skin moisturize at night?

It makes me more oily in the morning... Should I be doing it?

(this is after I have applied my creams and wash)

I'm having the same problem. I only moisturize certain areas of my face at night. Sometimes I skip the moisturizer too.

Either way I'm still a bit oily in the morning when I wake up. It's annoying.

Try moisturizing in the a.m. only.

try not to moisturize if you have oily skin- and use a loose powder dusted all over your face under your makeup- it will keep the make up in place (it tends to slide off with oily skin) and absorbs excess oil too. I like palladio rice powder from sally's beauty supply or neutrogene skin clearing pressed powder. good luck

you don't need to be a woman- if your skin is really oily and bothering you there is certainly nothing wrong with buying a clay facial mask and using it once ina while to restore balance to your skin! guys- we'd rather see you feeling confident about your skin than laugh at the fact that you tried a mask or some other 'feminine' treatment!

When you're on a topical Retinoid such as Retin-A Micro it's supposed to make your skin peel in an attempt to bring up the acne infection that is below the epidermis (visible layer of skin) to treat it and if it's successful you're left with a nice new layer of skin.

If you're using moisturizers while on a Retinoid it's self-defeating because the moisturizer will only delay the peeling process which is key to Retinoid products, this will prolong the time untill you begin to see results

I never moisturize. My face isn't dry so why bother!? Some might disagree but I am always worried about it causing breakouts.

I moisturize every morning and three times a week use a night repairing creme. I moisturize because it helps my skin heal faster and keeps it younger looking and it feels healthy. I use the regenerist stuff by Olay. I have combination skin and it has never broken me out or made things worse.
Everyone is different though.
