And here are the top 10 moisturizers for acne prone skin in Malaysia. If you happen to have acne prone skin, you might be wondering if you need to use a moisturizer for your face as some claims have stated that moisturizer can make acne worse. Here are a few benefits to using an acne prone moisturizer on your skin: 

  1. Control Breakouts

Moisturizers that are meant for acne prone skin have ingredients such as green tea and tea tree oil that help to control breakouts that are on the skin. Controlling the breakouts help to prevent them from becoming worse and leaving scars on the face.

  1. Reoccurance

By using a moisturizer that is targeted to combat acne, the moisturizer will help to prevent any acne from forming on the skin after each application. This in turn will help to even out your skin tone and make your skin clear.

Acne can dry out the skin due to it taking away moisture from the face and moisture is important to the skin as it helps to promote skin renewal and keeps the skin from peeling.
