When you have oily skin, it can be tempting to skip out on the moisturizer—after all you don’t want to do anything that’ll cause your complexion to look greasier, right? The thing is, you really should use moisturizer if you have oily skin—it’s all about finding the right one for your skin type. Here, find the best moisturizers for oily skin from L’Oréal Paris, along with tips for moisturizing oily skin.
Yes, you should use moisturizer daily even if you have oily skin. Find your moisturizer match for oily skin below!
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin: In normal and oily skin, external factors like pollution, UV rays, and excessive cleansing can damage skin’s moisture barrier, causing loss of moisture and an increase in oil production. As a result, skin becomes unbalanced and overly shiny-looking. This lightweight, oil-free moisturizer is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration with a matte (a.k.a. non-shiny) finish.
L’Oréal Paris Youth Code™ Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher Cream: Achieving the look of flawless smooth skin is all about paying attention to your pores. This cream helps absorb excess oil for a shine-free matte finish. Plus, it helps transform the appearance of skin’s texture for a smooth, refined look.
L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Facial Oil Light: Think outside the box when it comes to moisturizing oily skin—try a facial oil! This one is formulated with a purifying blend of eight essential oils (including lemongrass, chamomile, argan, and clove oils).
Once you’ve determined which moisturizer you’d like to use on your oily skin, follow these tips to upgrade your moisturizing routine.
Moisturizing tip #1: Apply with clean hands. Seems like a no-brainer, but it doesn’t hurt to remind you. Just like you know to wash your hands before dinner, you should also suds up prior to putting on skin care products. That’s because oils and debris that have built up on your fingers can transfer to your face. Yuck!
Moisturizing tip #2: Cleanse beforehand. Before you start layering on moisturizer, you should start with a clean base. Reach for a gentle, no-rinse cleansing option, like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin, which helps purify and mattify the look of skin. Heading to the gym? Toss a bottle of micellar water in your gym bag so that you can cleanse post-workout. All you need to do is pour some onto a cotton pad and wipe the pad across your face. Easy, peasy!
Moisturizing tip #3: Actually use it. Certain parts of your skin care routine should be non-negotiable. As we told you earlier, if you have oily skin, excessive cleansing can lead to an increase in oil production, leaving your complexion looking overly shiny. So, don’t skip out on this step if you have oily skin!
Moisturizing tip #4: Remember, less is more. Just because you should use moisturizer if you have oily skin doesn’t mean need to go overboard with it. Generally, you only need to use a coin-sized amount of moisturizer for your entire face. In this case, it pays to be stingy!
Moisturizing tip #5: Apply it to damp skin. After cleansing, don’t towel off right away. Instead, apply your moisturizer to damp skin to help lock in hydration. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, this is the best time to apply moisturizer.
Moisturizing tip: #5: Follow up with a finishing cream. Once you’re done moisturizing, use a finishing cream, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Miracle Blur Oil-Free, which can help blur the look of wrinkles, lines, and pores. Wear it alone or under foundation. Use it all over your face or squeeze a smaller amount for targeted application. The formula has a soft focus blurring effect and leaves skin with a velvety finish.
