I have an oily skin and I am confused about the kind of lotion I should apply. Are there any dangers of not using any lotion on my skin? Businge
Oily skin occurs due to excess oil production by oil producing glands of body. Apart from the greasy look, it makes one more prone to acne and secondary infections of the skin. It is a wrong belief that one with oily skin does not need any lotion/.moisturiser. Skin care consists of three essential steps - cleaning, toning and moisturising. Skin can be moisturised by drinking enough water and or applying some moisturiser. Avoiding use of moisturisers can make the skin dry, itchy and cause early wrinkling. A moisturiser with glycerine and humectants is suitable for oily skin. Some of these lotions or moisturizers for oily skin also contain ingredients for protecting from sun burn.
