If you have oily skin, you don't need to moisturize. Keep your face clean and be thankful for the oil that is keeping your face naturally healthy.

I am 42 years old and have oily skin and I have NEVER moisturized - ever. I don't think I look any different/older than those who do moisturize.
Actually, I've read that people with oily skin still need to moisturize, and it also depends on your level of oiliness, too, I suppose. My skin is really prone to breakouts because it's oily, and the astringent I use dries out my skin pretty bad so I need a moisturizer to balance things out.

I'll definitely check in to some of the suggestions though! Thanks y'all!
