It is very difficult to choose a good moisturiser for oily acne prone skin. Some are heavy where some are not sufficient to balance the moisture of the skin. Sometimes wrong moisturizers tend to make our skin dehydrated and sometimes lead to production of acne and spots. So here I am listing some good and effective moisturisers suitable for oily acne prone skin.
