Does moisturized skin break out more than dry skin?

Depends. In someone with acne-prone skin heavy moisturizers can add to your acne. Avoid moisturizers with lanolin or petrolatum in the base.
Usually Not. The skin serves as a barrier to the environment. In general, this barrier is most effective when it is well moisturized. However, some lotions contain fragrances and preservatives that can result in allergic reactions.
