Yes, You Need to Moisturize Even if You Have Blackheads
Use an oil-free moisturizer, preferably including hyaluronic acid, to deeply hydrate the skin, says Bratschi. This is an essential step to getting rid of blackheads, because overly dry skin can start to produce excess blackhead-causing oils. Just as too much oil can lead to blackheads, so can too little. Maintain a normal flow of oil from your pores by keeping your skin's moisture level balanced.
And, of course, always use an SPF during the day, especially since you'll be exfoliating your skin as part of this process, and ingredients like salicylic acid can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. We like Juice Beauty SPF 30 Oil-Free Moisturizer, $29.
