The Best Moisturizer for Summer

The Best Moisturizer for Summer

Do you want to know how to keep your skin healthy and hydrated this summer, minus the sticky feeling? Here’s how to find the best moisturizer for summer. 

The scorching, sweltering days of summer are upon us. Are you running away from moisturizers because of the sticky, uncomfortable feeling they leave behind on hot days? It is never a good idea to skip moisturizer as it helps to keep your skin hydrated and protected. If you are not a fan of greasy moisturizers, you need to rethink your skincare routine and customise it according to the hotter months. But, how to know which moisturizer fits the bill? Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to find the best moisturizer for summer that keeps your skin replenished, minus the greasy feeling. 

Lightweight formula

 Do you hate the feeling of your thick moisturizer sitting on top of your skin during the hot and humid days of summer? Heavy formulas can weigh down your skin and make you sweat more. As the season changes, you need to switch your heavy-duty, intense moisturizers with more lightweight formulas. 

Oil-free formula


As the weather warms up, your skin naturally produces more oil, and using heavy, oil-based moisturizers can leave you feeling greasy. Oil-free moisturizers, on the other hand, deliver the hydration our skin requires without adding excess grease, leaving you feeling refreshed and comfortable throughout the day. Moreover, oily formulas can clog your skin and cause acne. So, look for ‘non-comedogenic’ on the label because these products are formulated to avoid skin pore blockages.  

UV protection

When searching for the best moisturizer for summer, reach out for lightweight products that offer sun protection. Since we spend more time under the sun during summer, our skin faces an increased risk from harmful UV rays. That's why your summer moisturizer should do double duty, providing hydration and essential sun protection. But what about that dreaded greasy feeling some sunscreens leave behind? When looking for the best summer moisturizer, look for an SPF-infused, lightweight, non-greasy formula because it is comfortable to wear, making it perfect for everyday use, even in the summer heat. 

Steer clear of irritants

Due to the increased heat, humidity, and sun exposure during the summer months, your skin is more prone to sensitivity and irritation. So, while searching for the best moisturizer for summer, look for a formula that deeply nourishes your skin without causing irritation. It is recommended to steer clear of products with allergens. Be cautious of fragrances, preservatives and harsh chemicals because they tend to irritate the skin. To reduce the risk of allergic reactions, opt for hypoallergenic and fragrance-free products, especially if you have sensitive skin. In the warmer months, you will benefit from soothing and hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and soy.
