Myth: 1 (most popular)

Using moisturisers                          PSX_20150322_021506
causes the
skin to produce more oil

Fact :
Every skin needs hydration
inside and outside. Use gel, fluid
or oil free based moisturisers

[Extra: Moisturising is important both inside and outside, so it’s highly recommended to atleast drink 2.8 litres of water a day].


This Aloe Vera Gelly moisturiser by Forever Living Product and the aloe vera gel by aloe pura are examples of a gel based moisturiser ideal for oily and sensitive skin types. They are both very lightweight moisturisers that is quickly absorbed directly into the skin, leaving a matte finish result on the skin.

PSX_20150322_030844                             This Aloe Lotion also by Forever Living products is an example of a fluid based moisturiser, however it has a rich fromula than other fluid moisturisers; hence ideal for use on oily skin in colder and drier seasons, which would help to stop the skin from producing more oily because of the dry environment. It is enriched with jojoba oil and vitamin E, these two essential ingredients greatly improves the skin’s appearance and texture on days that the weather dries up the moisture on this skin, giving it a rough appearance and feel. its rich formula makes it ideal for use in drier or colder climates and is my “go-to” winter moisturiser for day and night times. it quickly absorbs into the skin and leaves a slight dewy finish. Perfect for Autumn and Winter seasons. Suitable for All skin types. For more informations, products and to purchase this product go to the Forever living product website

PSX_20150322_025243                                     This Aloe Propolis Creme is also by Forever Living Product, this moisturiser is my example of an oil-free based moisturer. I think it is certainly appropriate to label this product as ‘THE HOLYGRAIL’ moisturiser for oily skin. I can’t rave about this product enough (will write a much elaborate post on this product in future blogpost- stay tuned!) this product is truly the best. Right! let’s get into it, this ‘CREME’ moisturiser  has a balmy texture to it sort of like the feel of raw, organic and unprocessed cocoa butter and appears as it too. This moisturiser keeps the skin looking matte throughout the day with no shine in sight (no exaggeration), it is absorbed into the skin and keeps the skin moisturised all day. Absolutely perfect for spring and summer or in warmer climates. Ideal for Oily to Very Oily skin type. READ MORE of this product and how i discovered it.
