Oily skin: how to find the right moisturizer for you
When you have oily skin you need to make smart decisions about which moisturizer to use. You don’t want to weigh your skin down with extra oil or worse yet, make your skin break out. We’re looking at three types of moisturizers that are compatible with your skin type and can restore hydration without adding excess oil. Find out which one is the right moisturizer for you.
1. Gel Or Gel-Creams
Gels or gel-creams are a great option for oily skin as the formulas are hydrating without having a heavy emollient consistency. Garnier SkinActive’s Moisture Rescue Gel Cream for Normal/Combination Skin formula has a lightweight consistency that easily absorbs into your skin and can hydrate. Your skin will feel soft and supple without any excess oils making your skin look shiny.
2. Oil-Free BB Cream
Looking for hydration as well as some extra coverage of your skin? BB cream is a great option since there are formulations especially for oily skin. Garnier SkinActive’s 5-in-1 Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free BB Cream controls shine, minimizes the appearance of pores, evens skin tone, hydrates and helps prevent sunburn with broad spectrum SPF 15. A few drops of this shine-regulating BB cream on your face and you can have a matte beautiful face for the rest of the day.
3. Lightweight SPF Fluids
Like all skin types, oily skin needs SPF to protect it from the sun’s harmful UV rays and to prevent burning and premature skin aging. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Moisturizer Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 has a fast absorbing, non-greasy formula. It hydrates your skin without making it overly oily and can also brighten your complexion. Your skin will look smoother and be protected. Additionally because the formula is infused with antioxidants, your skin will be protected from free radicals, which can help prolong your skin’s youthful appearance.
