The pending warmer months are especially treacherous for those of us blessed with excessively oily skin, as the added moisture in the air is a recipe for skin disaster. But celebrity-loved New York dermatologist Dr. Paul Frank has a simple solution to combat that extra sheen: steer clear of any and all moisturizers.
“The oil the skin is already producing is the best natural moisturizer,” Dr. Frank said. “When people have super-oily skin, I advise them to stay away from moisturizer all together and focus on a face wash with salicylic acid. Cleansers that contain an AHA such as glycolic or salicylic acid prevent breakouts, too.” He recommends Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Acne Wash ($5.50) to rid the skin of extra oils and help reduce the risk of breakouts. Two benefits for the price of one!
