Skincare Myth: Acne Vs Oil Control Products

Q: As oily skin with pimple, should i use oil control products?

A: Most oil control products in market could help to reduce oil secretion, some contains oil-absorbing complex, can absorb oil effectively. However, one should understand well own skin condition, if cheeks are very dry, or apply accutane/differin gel (those retinoid products, famous antiacne application), should use hydrating lotion to counter attack the adverse side effects of these products cause: dryness. Otherwise, the skin will become dry, itchy and even have decortication (skin peeling).
