Do You Still Need to Moisturize Oily Skin?

When you have oily skin, the last thing you might think about is a moisturizer. After all, why would you add another product to your skin when you’re trying to reduce its oiliness? In reality, there are a whole host of benefits to using a daily moisturizer if your skin is oily or pimple-prone.

Here are some reasons why a moisturizer should be included in your skincare routine.

Oily Doesn’t Mean Hydrated

There’s a common misconception that if your skin is oily, it must be well-hydrated. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. So if you have oily skin and choose to dry out your skin further, you’ll experience seriously dehydrated skin which lead to issues such as inflammation, premature ageing, and even breakouts. Your body then responds to dry skin by making more oil, which clogs pores and leads to even more pimples. It’s a vicious cycle, but you can prevent it! Moisturizers improve our skin’s hydration by adding water to it, which in turn, will eventually lead to less oily skin.

Eases Side Effects of Acne Medication

When our skin won’t cooperate and we’re forced to use more aggressive forms of acne treatments, such as retinoids or benzoyl peroxide, it becomes even more important to moisturize your skin because these products are designed to dry out your skin. Worse yet, these treatment options are also known to cause flakiness, peeling, and inflammation, so a daily moisturizer is your best defence against these uncomfortable side effects.

Oil-Free Moisturizers

There are plenty of moisturizers on the market today that are made for oily skin. These moisturizers are oil-free and non-comedogenic, which means they won’t clog your pores. These specially-designed products typically include ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid. Be sure to review the ingredient list on your moisturizer to ensure you’re using one that is suited to your skin’s needs.

Dormer®211 offers a complete skincare line for all skin types, including an oil-free moisturizer. Visit our website today to learn more about our wide variety of products suited to specific skin types.

How to Get Vitamin D Safely from the Sun

If you live in a northern climate, chances are you’re not getting a lot of sunshine. This may put you at a disadvantage of receiving adequate vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin. Vitamin D is important to the function of our immune system, bones and overall health. In fact, our bodies recognize its need so much that our skin synthesizes it when we are outdoors and are directly exposed to UVB rays. If you are not getting enough vitamin D through your diet or from the sun, taking supplements will help to increase your intake. Many people are deficient in vitamin D but what’s particularly notable is that those who suffer from psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and other skin diseases have very low levels of the vitamin and should consider sun therapy in conjunction with our line of products as an added healing method towards better skin health.

Did you Give the Gift of Dormer to Mom this Mother’s Day?

It's not too late, it is the gift that keeps on giving. All of our products incorporate an exclusive hyaluronic acid complex that helps to replenish and lock in moisture, restoring the skin’s natural moisture balance. This results in superior skin softening, smoothing, lubricating and elasticity. It’s no wonder that women all over North America include Dormer in their skincare arsenal for all their anti-ageing battles.
Dormer products are also powered with lecithin, which acts as a moisturizer and antioxidant to fight dry and damaged skin due to its essential fatty acid content. Lecithin promotes the deep penetration of this fat and other Dormer skin conditioning ingredients into the epidermis. Not only does this stimulate cell regeneration and improve skin texture but it also helps to prevent wrinkles. Mom will look 20 years younger and she’ll have you to thank for choosing Dormer.
