When you’ve got oily or combination skin you may be hesitant about slathering on rich moisturisers. Nobody wants to bring on a breakout or encourage excess shine. Just because your skin is naturally on the oily side doesn’t mean it can’t get dehydrated though – especially if you’re using strong anti-blemish products that can dry out your skin. Finding the right products and a moisturiser for oily skin could be key to mattifying and brightening your complexion, especially in high temperatures and humid climates where your complexion can feel greasy.
When you’re looking for your perfect match when it comes to moisturisers, ‘non-comedogenic’ (products that are not likely to cause those blocked pores you’re trying to avoid) can be helpful terms to look for in your search to control shine and soak up excess sebum. An oil-free moisturiser that simultaneously clears and hydrates your skin strikes the right balance, helping to minimise the appearance of pores and shine, while encouraging a plumper, more radiant complexion. If you’re still concerned about looking greasy, a matte-finish formula can also provide the perfect finishing touch.
