The Importance of Moisturizing Oily Skin

I have oily skin, y'all. Like, I could probably provide enough oil for my car's next oil change (beautiful picture, right?). Okay, maybe not THAT bad, but it's bad! For the longest time I would skip applying a moisturizer in the mornings because I thought if I added it to my beauty routine it was pointless since my skin was already a grease ball. Makeup would just slide around and I would become even more oily, right? WRONG.


When our faces produce oil, it's not the same moisturizing grade as an actual moisturizer, rather a spike in hormones that's causing the overproduction of oil. Skipping moisturizer is only hurting your skin because if it's not moisturized, your skin will overproduce oil (AKA sebum). Sebum can contain bacteria which is the source of acne if you're on the oily side. Oily skin needs to be moisturized because it tends to overproduce sebum to aid in moisturizing the skin. Applying a moisturizer to your skin can help lower the amount of sebum that's produced because the skin will be moisturized.


I started trying Valentia's Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer* a couple of weeks ago and can honestly say I'm in love. I've tried many moisturizers from both the drug store and higher end stores like Sephora, but products either made my skin extra oily or too matte. This Brightening Moisturizer contains the following organic ingredients: hyaluronic acid which keeps the skin moisturized and plump, kojic acid to brighten dark spots, ginseng to firm the skin and help produce collagen, sunflower oil to repair skin, and shea butter which is loaded with nutrients and vitamins for nourishment. This moisturizer is on the thicker side, has a light pleasant scent and is quickly absorbed. It leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and I've noticed a big difference in how much less oily my skin as been!

I know I've raved about this brand many times, but I'm really in love! Their products contain organic and natural ingredients, so you know it's good for your skin.
