In brief: Depends

In someone with acne-prone skin heavy moisturizers can add to your acne.
Avoid moisturizers with lanolin or petrolatum in the base.

In brief: 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.
