Treating acne for dry skin?

Asked by Sylvia 1.86K Rep.

Dr. Schultz-

I have dry skin and suffer from acne. Is the treatment different from oily acne skin?

Thank you!

    Dry skin with acne really means that you have combination skin. While the “spot” products that you apply directly to the pimples are the same, the oily areas (usually the “T” zone) are treated with regular acne cleansers and toners, and usually don’t need moisturizers, and the dry areas (usually the cheeks) are treated with cleansers and toners for dry skin and often do need (water based) moisturizers.
