All Skin Types Need Moisturizer

Lately, the number one problem I've seen with clients is increased breakouts caused by extremely dry skin.

Especially in these dry winter months, it's important for ALL skin types to moisturize. Often people with oily or combination skin will not use a moisturizer, thinking it will make them break out more. Actually, the opposite is true.

Not using a moisturizer will cause your skin to get dehydrated, and it can then trigger your skin to produce more oil. Remember, there is a big difference in your skin between water and oil. If you have oily skin, you still have to hydrate, both inside and out. Make sure your moisturizer, and all makeup,  is "oil-free" or "noncomedogenic" (nonclogging).

Moisturizers aren't created equal. Choose a quality moisturizer formulated for your skin type. If you're unsure which product to use, give me a call (720-351-6219). All initial consults are free.
