12 Lightweight Moisturisers For Every Skin Type

12 Lightweight Moisturisers For Every Skin Type

Summer months call for a skincare switch-up. And when it comes to moisturiser, we’re ditching winter’s heavy formulas for something altogether fresher and lighter – from blemish-busting solutions to formulations for sensitive skin here’s our pick of the best for best warm weather…

For Oily Skin

While those with oily skin may be tempted to forgo moisturiser come summer, remember that skipping it can be counterproductive, triggering your oil glands to become more active. Instead, reach for a formula specially designed to keep oil levels in check and shine at bay. It’s all about using a water-based product in the heat – we’re loving Neutrogena’s Gel Moisturiser, which is refreshingly lightweight and oil-free, as well as Dr Dennis Gross’ offering, which comes packed with Japanese marine algae to boost elasticity and a cocktail of ingredients to keep pores from getting clogged.

 For Dry Skin

A lightweight yet intensely moisturising product may sound like an impossible feat, but thanks to new technology it’s now appearing in abundance in the beauty world. Take, for example, Dior’s hot-off-the-press Hydration Rescue Sorbet Crème, which is enriched with mango butter, chamomile and mallow to quench thirsty complexions without being greasy.

We also give our full marks to under-the-radar brand Pestle & Mortar’s Hydrate Moisturiser, brimming with vitamin E, green tea and antioxidants for a plumped-up glow.

For Acne-Prone Skin

Prone to blemishes? Make a bee-line for Dr Sebagh’s recently launched Skin Perfecting Cream – the innovative formula uses bio technology to combat excessive skin sebum linked to breakouts, while a calming complex will soothe skin and reduce shine.

Skin expert extraordinaire Kate Somerville’s Oil-Free Moisturiser is also one to try – recently arriving in the UK, it’ll fight shine and blemishes as well as tackle anti-ageing.

 For Sensitive Skin

If your complexion is prone to redness once the sun shines, Votary’s new Super Seed Nutrient Cream comes highly recommended. The fragrance-free formula is brimming with 21 nutrient-rich super seed oils including chia, rosehip and calendula to aid skin recovery without leaving it feeling heavy.

Cult French pharmacy brand Avène’s Hydrance Optimale Light also works wonders to soothe and protect without irritating sensitive complexions.
