Best Moisturizers for Combination-Oily Skin | Skincare Review

 

Ever since I started taking care of my skin, its been a challenge to find the perfect moisturizer for oily skin. For the longest time, I did not even realise that my oily skin needed a moisturizer. Many women are under the misconception that if they have oily skin, they do not need moisturizer. The truth is, everyone needs moisturizer, you just need the texture and formula suited for your skin type! Moisture/Hydration is different from oil/sebum and if your skin is oily, it doesn’t imply that it is hydrated. Low levels of moisture in the skin leads to overproduction of oil, as the skin tries to compensate for the lack of water. To maintain healthy, balanced skin, its important to hydrate the skin and not strip it dry.

Oily skinned people need to use light-weight moisturizers in the form of lotions, emulsions or gels and should stay away from heavier creams which may clog the pores and lead to pimples and blackheads. My skin oscillates between combination and oily and every once in a while, I get a few angry breakouts that refuse to budge for days. So I’ve tested out a boat load of moisturizers over the past few months and compiled this list of oily skin-friendly moisturizers. I hope you will find this compilation helpful!

Product of the Week : Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Gel Cream

 

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Gel Cream is light weight, oil-free cream that is excellent for combination skin that needs some extra hydration minus the greasiness of heavier moisturizers. I’ve been using this all week – not just as a moisturizer but also to sheer out my foundation. When mixed with foundation, it gives such a nice healthy finish to the skin. The best part however it that it balances the oil/water level of my skin so my face doesn’t get oily on the T-zone for hours afterwards!

I’ve just started using it so the review will follow after a few more days of use. The jar shown here is a travel size sample.
