It’s normal for your skin to turn oily during the summers. In fact, even if you have dry skin, your T-Zone can turn oily during the hot and humid weather. And applying a moisturiser on oily skin can make it look greasy and clog the pores, which ultimately leads to breakouts. However, that does not mean you can skip moisturising your skin in summers. Instead, what you need is a gel moisturiser that will keep your skin nourished without adding to the oiliness.
Summer can be pretty harsh on your skin, adding some soothing moisturisers will calm your skin and prevent problems like rashes and itchiness. We’ve picked five soothing gel moisturisers for summer that will give you soft, problem free skin.
