There’s nothing quite like feeling you’re over-layered. And no, we’re not just talking about clothes—we happen to also mean skin care products. Depending on your skin's needs, you may find you only need a lightweight moisturizer to help keep your skin hydrated.
The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care line features three lightweight, water-based moisturizers for different skin types. They’re all formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. Each of these lightweight moisturizers is like a “boost” of water for the skin, continuously refreshing it with hydration. Pick from the three below this season, then smooth your moisturizer of choice over your face and neck after cleansing.
Just because you have oily skin doesn’t mean you get a free pass in the moisturizer department! In normal and oily skin, external factors such as 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, your complexion is left looking overly shiny. This water-based moisturizer for normal/oily skin helps reduce the appearance of excess shine for a matte look. This fresh, watery, oil-free formula for normal and oily skin is air light and glides on easily for quick absorption, leaving skin feeling refreshed and clean.
Dry skin deserves serious love, especially during the summer months when you’re likely spending lots of time in the air conditioning. Normal and dry skin faces external factors such as pollution and UV rays that can damage the skin’s moisture barrier, increasing loss of moisture and causing it to become drier. As a result, skin surface loses its glow, becoming dull-looking. This water-based moisturizer for dry skin envelops skin with moisture, improving the look of skin’s radiance. Immediately, skin appears more luminous. This formula for normal and dry skin is lightweight and glides on easily for quick absorption, leaving skin with a soft touch.
If you have extra dry skin, then you know how important a role moisturizing should play in your skin care routine. Extra dry skin has a very fragile moisture barrier that can be easily damaged by external factors such as pollution and UV rays. Skin consequently loses its ability to retain moisture, becoming easily dehydrated, feeling tight and uncomfortable. This water-based moisturizer for extra dry skin envelops skin with moisture, providing comfort. Immediately, skin is comfortable, soothed, and nourished with moisture. This formula for extra dry skin glides on easily for quick absorption, leaving skin with a comfortable feel.
Finding the right lightweight moisturizer for your skin type this summer is only half the battle. How you apply it to your complexion matters, too. Editor’s tip: After cleansing, don’t dry off with a towel. Instead, apply your water-based moisturizer to damp skin to help lock in hydration.
Now, just a quick note about your moisturizing routine this summer. Once you’re done applying your lightweight moisturizer in the morning, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher on top, then take other sun protection measures such as limiting your amount of time in the sun (especially during the sun’s peak hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), covering up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses, and seeking shade. A good sun protection routine is key during the summer—and all year-round, really, so don’t skip out!
