5 Moisturizers That Are Great For Oily Skin

Even if you have oily skin, you still need to use moisturizer. This must be one of the most overused sentences said by beauty gurus everywhere. As overused as it is, it still rings true, and a surprising amount of people think that because they have oily skin, they don’t need moisturizer. Well, guess what? Since your skin produces sebum to add moisture to your face, then that means that an overactive oil gland is compensating for a lack of moisture and hydration. Adding a moisturizer to your skincare routine will actually help control and lessen sebum production. If you’re not sure how to pick a moisturizer, then you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a list of moisturizers that are great for oily skin. I’ve tried and tested a lot of moisturizers, and I find the ones listed below helped best to control my skin.

Don’t be afraid of the word “hydrating.” Hydrating doesn’t mean greasy, and I found that this moisturizer works best for more combination skin types. It has a light, lotion-like consistency, and it doesn’t overly moisturize my face. It isn’t scented, and it would be great if you have sensitive skin as well.
