You leave home feeling all fresh and scented only to turn into a sweaty, messy victim of the unforgiving heat minutes later. Paper napkins and wet wipes don’t cut it and you feel like you need a blotting paper to soak up the sweat on your face. If that’s the story of your life summer after summer, there is a good chance that your day cream isn’t working the way a summertime skincare formula should.
The trick to keeping your skin nourished without turning it into a constant oil slick is to find a light moisturiser that will sink into your skin effortlessly instead of sitting on like a glossy layer of grease. The right kind of products can not only bring a dewy effect to your skin even at the peak of summer but also make it cooler. Here is our pick of five such moisturisers that are designed to nourish without making you sweat:
Neutrogena Oil-free Moisture Combination Skin
Made with a special oil-absorbing Microsponge system, the Neutrogena Oil-free Moisture Combination Skin moisturiser is an oil-free non-comedogenic product that nourishes the skin without making it feel shiny or oily. This is a great product for those who grapple with an oily T-zone. The light formula sinks right into the skin, leaving it smoother and softer. The moisturiser also adds a nice matte finish that lasts throughout the day.
Faces Hydro Face Moisturiser SPF15
The Faces Hydro Face Moisturiser has been specially crafted for providing required hydration to dry and sensitive skin without feeling too greasy. The blend of natural ingredients such as shea butter and soybean extract makes it an ideal product that improves skin texture over time. The product is also a one-stop-solution for all your summertime skincare needs because it is enriched with SPF 15.
Biotique Bio Carrot Ultra Soothing Face Lotion SPF40+
Another all-natural, light and SPF infused formula that does a fine job of nourishing the skin. The SPF 40 also helps in sun protection. Made with extracts of lodhra bark, carrot seed, pure carrot oil, aloe vera and quince seed, the Biotique Bio Carrot Ultra Soothing Face Lotion soothes skin making it THE product for summer.
Eau Thermale Avene Clean Acne Care Hydrating Cream
A constant layer of greasy creams sitting on your skin can make it more prone to acne breakouts, which is already a big concern during this time of the year. The non-oily, skin soothing formula of the Eau Thermale Avene Clean Acne Care Hydrating Cream helps in combating acne breakouts while offering instant nourishment.
Shahnaz Husain Precious Pearl Cream Moisturiser
The Shahnaz Husain Precious Pearl Cream Moisturiser is a rich moisturising product packed with the power of real pearls. Built on an age-old skincare formula, this moisturiser not only offers protection against harsh, drying sun rays but it also rejuvenates and revitalizes the skin surface, giving it a smooth, nourished and radiant glow.
