Five Summer Moisturizers That Won’t Clog Your Pores
The sporadic rain showers in Lahore might give us a break from the sweltering summer and humidity but it’s the peak of the warm weather. Keeping your body and face off the affects of the hot season might become difficult during fasting. I know you would drink tons of water and other liquids to catch up with your hydration but what about your face? I don’t need to start all over again with the importance of hydrating your skin during the summer. It’s EVERYTHING and you know it. Dry, normal or oily, your skin needs hydration, period.
That said, we would easily dab our face with rich, heavy moisturizers in winters but with temps going up to 50 degrees, they won’t make an easy cut for the summer. Fret not, you can still opt for something that is light, super-hydrating and is great for the summer. Confused? I got you. Here are five summer moisturizers that you can count on for a fresh, hydrated skin without worrying about clogged pores and sticky face.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture
With too many options available out there, you are most likely to get confused. When in doubt, get your hands on this drugstore classic. Nothing fancy or mumbo jumbo about this, Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture easily gets the job done. The lightweight, nourishing formula is sure to keep your skin hydrated all day long. Bonus: with four variants available in this classic, you would definitely find the one that goes with your skin.
Clinique Pep-Start Hydrorush Moisturizer
Okay this is a winner. Packed with “Hydrorush Barrier Technology”, it guards your skin against the wearisome hot climate. What makes it the best bet? It comes loaded with SPF 20 which not only hydrates the skin but also keeps it protected against sunburn and tan. The sunny orange bottle is an instant crush and you’ll get summer vibes just by tossing it in your vanity box.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Body Lotion
You know The Body Shop never fails to impress. This one makes a great hydrator for prepping up your skin before you layer it with your favorite moisturizer. It’s like the cool, refreshing splash of hydration that will leave your skin visibly softer and healthier. If your skin gets oily and sweaty real fast then this is your thing (it’s suitable for all skin types though). Smooth it over your face before putting on SPF or moisturizer for that extra boost.
CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion
There is a reason why CeraVe is loved by dermatologists and beauty buffs alike. Its unique formula is sheer simple and totally non-greasy which sinks in so well with the skin and restores its natural protective barrier. A bonus of SPF 30 makes it perfect for the days when sun is shining a little too bright. Love it already? Me too.
GLAMGLOW Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer
Let’s face it: no one is in the mood of layering up their face with that base when everything is melting outside. The Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer is made for those days. Packed with pearly particles, it can effortlessly replace your BB cream or base to give your skin that special effect. Besides blurring summer-caused skin imperfections, it can enhance your natural glow which makes it a great pick for the summer.
