These lightweight wonders provide much-needed hydration without stirring up excess sebum.
We all experience our fair share of greasy skin and sweat-induced breakouts in the warmer months, but for those of us whose baseline is that of excess oiliness, a lightweight, noncomedogenic moisturizer is a year-round must.
You know you can’t necessarily reach for the same moisturizer as your normal-, dry-, and even combination-skin-typed friends, but you also know that being a little too blessed in the sebum department doesn’t mean you can skip moisturizer altogether. Your skin can still become dehydrated, and it still needs moisture on the reg. So if richer, heavier moisturizers are hot coffee, think of these oily-skin-friendly moisturizers — many of which are gel-based instead of often too-rich creams — as iced coffee; both hit the spot, but iced coffee feels lighter and refreshing. They’re exactly what you need for easily provoked, constantly congested pores.
Below, you’ll find our top picks for lightweight, super-chill moisturizers that will keep your oily, breakout-prone skin hydrated, glowing, and feeling fresh — not to mention looking clear and smooth — no matter the season. And even if your skin isn’t oily, these are perfect picks for the summer.
