Did you know that all the skin benefits from using a moisturiser and skipping it can actually make your skin greasier? If your skin gets dehydrated, it often starts producing excess oil, which is a definite no, no when it comes to keeping you hydrated. But, using a lightweight moisturiser with sunscreens can bring back the balance for a luminiscent complexion.
Dr Greg Goodman from the Dermatology Institute of Victoria says lighter formulas are definitely best particularly in warmer seasons as they won’t clog and lay heavy on the skin. However, he warns those with very dry and sensitive skins are usually best off avoiding botanicals and fragrant products. “If skin is oily or acne prone try gel-based moisturisers or lotions,” he says.
One of the best skin all-rounders is Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel SPF15, $24.99. Not only does it absorb oil and eliminate excess shine, which is great particularly on humid days, this non-greasy formula contains hyaluronic acid and olive extract, which provides long-lasting moisture to dry skin for up to 24 hours. All you need is to apply one or two pumps over the skin post-shower and the gel cream will instantly sink into the skin leaving it soft, smooth and supple. And, the fact that it contains a sunscreen, means your skin is protected against the harmful rays of the sun too.
