Question: “MUST you use a moisturizer?”

Dear Mads,

Can you recommend a moisturizer, or is it really necessary to use one?

Now, I will stop using oils on my face :-)

Excellent new site and, once again thanks.


Answer to: “MUST you use a moisturizer?”

Dear Alexander,

When it comes to moisturizers/lotions/serums, etc., you should only use these if your skin really needs it. There is absolutely no reason to use a crème/lotion if your skin is already greasy. This will only add extra oil to your skin, which can cause acne and blemishes.

If you have very greasy skin then avoid crème, but use a light powder with sunscreen during the day, so you will still protect your skin from the damaging rays from the sun.

Have an amazing day!
