    There's a common misconception that moisturizing makes you break out. While some products won't help your acne-fighting cause, it's important to remember that hydrating is not the enemy. In fact, there's a whole host of creams and gels that will keep your face supple without making you an oily mess.

    The secret to finding these perfect products is knowing the right ingredients for your skin type. We chatted with two top pros in the field — Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, and celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas  — to get the scoop on how to select a moisturizer.

    Read on for your customized cocktail of anti-breakout ingredients. Smooth, blemish-free skin, here you come.
