Most women with oily skin tend to skip applying moisturiser, especially during the summer. The logic being that their skin is already a greasy mess and applying a moisturiser will only add to the woes. But guess what? That’s BS!
Everyone, we repeat, everyone needs to moisturise their skin, that too, all year round. Why? Because if you don’t, your skin will overcompensate for the lack of moisture by producing more oil leading to clogged pores, acne and what not.
However, applying a rich, creamy formula is a big NO-NO too! What you really need is a lightweight moisturiser that will keep the skin hydrated, minus the ickiness. Ahead, our pick of the best lightweight moisturisers for your best summer skin ever.
- Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser
- Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser
- Lakmé 9 To 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel
- Dermalogica Calm Water Gel Moisturiser
