What will constitute the best face moisturizer for oily skin? It must be a face moisturizer that will remove the excess oil that oily skin will produce. It will unclog the pores of makeup, dirt, and of course excess oil. It will not completely remove the natural oils from the skin but it will keep the oil levels in proper balance but it will keep the levels not excessive or too thin. It will help to unclog the pores and prevent sebum oil from hardening in the pores and cause skin inflammation. Once the skin becomes inflamed then this will open the door for acne-causing bacteria to proliferate on the skin and cause major acne breakouts. The product will be a gentle skin exfoliator that will kill dead skin cells and leave the skin dry (not too dry) and moisturized.
