6 Non-Comedogenic Moisturizers to Try if You Have Oily or Acne-Prone Skin
If clogged pores, breakouts and blemishes are a common skin concern of yours, it’s time to take a look at your skin-care products. In doing so, allow us to introduce you to a term that should guide your entire arsenal: non-comedogenic. You’ve probably seen it stamped across labels on cleansers, moisturizers and more, but what exactly does it mean? When labeled “non-comedogenic,” products are specifically formulated to not clog pores. If your current moisturizer isn’t non-comedogenic, it’s time to swap it out in favor of one that is. Below, we’re sharing six of the best non-comedogenic face moisturizers you’ll want to add to cart ASAP, especially if you have oily or acne-prone skin.
If you have oily skin, it might seem logical to skip moisturizer as a way to reduce excess shine on the skin’s surface, but that’s actually not recommended. All skin types require daily hydration, so instead of neglecting this need, simply reach for a formula that’s light, comfortable and non-comedogenic. This version of the Ultra Facial Cream is specifically designed for oily skin types and can hydrate the skin for long-lasting moisture without a greasy feel.
Large, visible pores can get in the way of flawless, even makeup application. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat helps counteract excess shine and the appearance of enlarged pores to create the perfect base for makeup.
This thirst-quenching formula from Peter Thomas Roth is exactly what your skin needs. It’s suitable for all skin types (including oily) and contains 30% hyaluronic acid for hydration that lasts up to 72 hours. The best part? It feels as cloud-like (read: light) and hydrating as its name suggests.
It’s crucial to follow a morning skin-care routine but sometimes time is not on our side. CeraVe can help keep you on schedule with its two-in-one AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion with Sunscreen. The oil-free formula contains hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, zinc and three essential ceramides to lock in hydration without leaving behind a residue.
Struggling with adult acne? Reach for this anti-acne moisturizer. The formula reduces the appearance of blemishes, enlarged pores, excess shine and dull skin. It’s formulated with salicylic acid to address current breakouts and keep them from reoccurring.
This lightweight formula instantly replenishes and refreshes your skin with every application. Plus, it is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and dermatologist-tested.
