Why You Should Switch To A Gel Moisturizer

Share

Dehydrated skin is a drag, but even worse is looking greasy as a result of using too many hydrating products—an especially troubling issue for those with already oily skin. With warm weather (and extra oiliness) on the horizon, there is a perfect solution for all skin types: gel moisturizers. Unlike winter’s heavy moisturizing creams, these light, water-based formulas deeply hydrate and quickly absorb into skin without any added shine—the ultimate win when temps get exceptionally balmy. Plus, the soothing formula is ultra-calming for agitated skin, a bonus for those prone to sensitivity. And those with drier, maturing skin will be pleased to hear that the hydrant not only drenches the epidermis but also strengthens its moisture barrier, helping to retain skin’s youthful suppleness. Ahead, the 20 best gel moisturizers ranging in price to suit every budget.
