The inclusion of oil in skincare products will cause few problems for dry skin types. Oily skin is, however, more susceptible to becoming clogged when oil-based products are used (especially when topically applied as a leave-on treatment), so an oil-free moisturiser can be hugely beneficial.
The difference between oils and oil-based products
Integrating a cleansing oil into your skincare regime as part of the double-cleansing method will help to effectively dissolve sebum and deep cleanse the skin.
In comparison, an everyday moisturiser is applied as a leave-on treatment and the inclusion of oil can therefore clog the pores and cause more concerns for combination-oily skin types.
Benefits of applying an oil-free moisturiser
Oil-free moisturisers are formulated to help problematic skin types achieve a shine-free finish, while boosting long-lasting hydration.
As an alternative to oils, oil-free moisturisers and creams tend to include humectants, e.g. Glycerin, as they help to draw water out from beneath the surface of the skin to increase hydration, as opposed to forming a greasy layer on-top of the skin.
