Ultra-Light Gel Moisturizers You’ll Want to Use All Summer
Summer is notorious for a few things when it comes to your skin. One of which is the dreaded greasy-looking shine that lingers on the skin and melts makeup. Because all skin types need hydration — even on the most hot, muggy days — skipping your moisturizer won’t cut it. Still, layering on heavy moisturizers during summer is not ideal. That’s where gel moisturizers come in. These water-based hydrators are lightweight, refreshing and can even help stop shine. Best of all, the light-as-a-feather consistency feels like you’re not wearing anything on your skin. What more could we want during the summer? Ahead, we rounded up our favorite gel moisturizers to swap into your skin-care routine for summer.
