Using moisturiser?

    Ok so I have acne literally 24/7 but I've started using a tea tree moisturiser regularly and although the acne is still there, it is a lot more under control so I don't want to stop using it.

    However, with the warmer and sunnier months coming along soon, I want to to use a moisturiser with spf in it. Obviously on super hot days I'll wear actual sunscreen but on the other days I just want some in my moisturiser.

    My question is will it be ok to use both moisturisers every morning? Or will that be too much moisturiser for my face to handle? And if you have any extra information or suggestions feel free to let me know. I have combination skin (oily t-zone and normal everywhere else) if that helps at all.

    Thank you!

    You can ask a beauty shop (e.g boots, superdrug etc) assistant on what product to use, they will help.

    Boots sell a brand of skincare called Cetaphil and they have really good moisturisers which i am nearly certain have spf in them.

    They have different moisturisers for different skin types (I have oily acne prone skin and it has never broken me out before).

    Ruby Rose from OITNB uses the brand, but it is really affordable.

    You should check it out !

    I use a different moisteriser day and night. You could use Tea Tree at night and the one with SPF during the day?
