The answer is a resounding Yes!
A very common misconception among women is that acne prone skin does not require moisturizers. This is because acne is supposed to be a consequence of oily skin and moisturizers are further thought of as something that aggravates the oiliness of the skin.
However, what most people fail to realize is that there is difference between moisture and oil. Moisturizers are hydrating substances that cover the tiny fissures of the skin and provide a soothing protective film. In fact, moisturizers slow the evaporation of the skin’s moisture and thus keep up the hydration levels.
Moisturizers are not your enemy. Rather they can be very good friends when you know what to use on acne prone skin. It’s all about getting the right moisturizer. Here are some tips to choose a moisturizer for acne prone skin.
The moisturizer should be oil-free and especially formulated for acne prone skin. It should be lightweight and preferably gel based. This makes sure that it is gentle on the skin and doesn’t add on to the oiliness of the skin.
It should contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid that treat acne, lessen acne sores and improve the skin quality.
Most importantly, the moisturizer should be anti-acneic and should not further irritate your acne.
Here is a great choice:

While this may be true in theory, practically it is not possible. There have been several studies that have proven that sunscreens with SPF 50+ are just as effective as a sunscreen with an SPF 30.
