11 Moisturizers For Every Skin Type

The unpredictability of our weather may leave drastic consequences on your skin, especially on your face. One minute, the scorching heat will overwhelm your entire being, the next, it’s pouring buckets of rain. The end result: a totally dehydrated and washed out face. Despite the changing forecast, we must observe precautions to keep our skin in good condition. The basics of keeping healthy skin often starts with a good moisturizer, so keeping a bottle in you stash is ultra handy. And while we rely on skincare products to combat skin damage, using the wrong ones on your particular skin type won’t do any good either. 

Which is why in the age of skincare, knowing your skin type is so important. Once you’ve got that sorted out, finding the right beauty products for you is easy as pie. To start you off, we’ve shortlisted moisturizers suited for each skin type. Whether you’re oily-skinned or prone to acne, you won’t need to skip moisturizing in your daily beauty routine anymore.

For Oily Skin:

Contrary to what most believe, people with oily skin also need moisturizing. It’s best to opt for non-greasy, water-based moisturizers to avoid clogged pores.
