Sun and dyness: The two things you can control that cause aging are dryness and excess sun exposure. Using a moisturizer regulary and using a sunscreen and protecting yourself from intense sun will help to minimze aging.

Ok: I think most people would find it too oily, and it would have a greater chance of causing acne and plugged pores than a non-comedogenic moisturizer. But if it works for you that's great.
