I've noticed that a lot of high end, dermatologist-led skincare lines (Obagi, Erno Lazlo, DR. Hauschka, etc.) advocate for either no moisturizer or less moisturizer than most other skincare lines do. Like my personal fave, Dr. hauschka's, no night cream rule.

Why is this? Has anyone tried it long-term?

Are any of y'all convinced?

My skin gets too dry if I don't use moisturizer or just use a serum. Most serums are good with something over them to seal them in.

A lot of lines are advocating facial oils now too. I'm good with oils, but some need to try a few to find what works for their skin.

Hmm..Let me see if I can explain what I think in my very non technical, non scientific way why that could, in some ways, be a good thing...

When I was young I was anorexic and then followed that up with a very low calorie diet for a long time. When I finally tried to eat normally I gained weight...more weight than I wanted. My body had gone into starvation survival mode and my metabolism had gotten lax to accommodate the lack of fuel. The way I finally regulated that was through exercise. It naturally reeved up my metabolism and I got straight that way and have been ever since.

I think the skin might be similar to some degree. When we have very oily skin and try to dry it out (like I once did) it tends to do the opposite and produce more oil and when we lather on the moisturizers it tends to overcompensate the other way.

The way to handle it may be more organically...working with your body rather than just doing things to it. That doesn't mean not moisturizing at all but trying to get your skin to its healthiest place and paying attention to what really works for it.
That's pretty simplistic but it makes sense on some level.
I have combination skin now and seldom use any kind of moisturizer at night. It depends on how my skin is reacting. I don't automatically apply moisturizer as a rule of habit.

I have heard two different theories about this. The first was that Eva Fraser said that at night your skin needs to breathe and so it doesn't need a topical as that would interfere with the body getting rid of toxins etc. Secondly though she does advocate a light day moisturizer - think it was nivea as she said the skin needs some form of protection.

With Erno Lazlo - he didn't recommend a moisturizer but from what I recall I had to use the pre cleanser, then the little bar of soap and do 60 splashes over the sink with warm water. It was then followed by a toner and that was in itself 3 products and took a long time. I did feel a different from using his regime but it took too long timewise so didn't continue it. Plus he was very strict - if you were late he wouldn't see you. I saw him twice and he was charming but didn't take any excuses and would insist it was his way and only his way.
