The summer heat tends to bring out your natural shine – unfortunately not in a good way. We’re talking sweaty, oil slick central. While you may be tempted to skip on moisturizer when you’re feeling greasy, don’t. Hydrating your skin can actually help rebalance your skin and reduce excess oil production. Here’s a roundup of our favorite products for fighting that summer oil slick while still keeping skin moisturized.
Baxter of California Oil Free Moisturizer – For a lightweight and fast-absorbing formula, look no further. It’s oil free with a matte finish so it won’t leave skin shiny or greasy. It’s also fragrance free and contains aloe and chamomile to calm and soothe sensitive skin types.
Recipe for Men Anti Shine Moisturizer – This one’s a heavy hitter for those with super oily skin. High-tech micropearl powder absorbs excess oil to keep skin looking fresh and shine free. We also like that it contains black tea to reduce acne inflammation and caffeine for a skin pick-me-up.
Port Products Balancing Daily Moisturizer – This fast-absorbing cream fights excess oil production while also containing a complex of anti-aging ingredients like ginger root and bamboo extract to keep skin looking its youthful best. The fact that it’s packed full of natural ingredients and both paraben and fragrance free is a great added bonus!
