5 Moisturizers With a Matte Finish for Oily Skin Types

You may think that because you have an oily complexion you can skip out on moisturizing your skin. But the truth is, not using a moisturizer every day can actually cause your skin to produce even more oil to make up for what it believes to be a loss of moisture. The key to giving your oily skin what it needs is to pick a moisturizer that leaves behind a matte finish. Ahead, we’re sharing our favorite moisturizers that can help keep excess oil away while still hydrating.

YSL Beauty Nu Blotting Lotion

This jelly mattifier works to control shine and reduce the appearance of large pores. It contains salicylic acid plus limonette extract to minimize congestion without drying out the skin. It can be used as a mattifying base under foundation or on its own for a natural finish.




La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat

Formulated with micro-exfoliating lipo-hydroxy-acid and hydrating thermal spring water, this moisturizer works to mattify the skin and refine the look of pores. You can use it on its own or as a base for your makeup.



Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Oil-Free Matte Moisturizer

If you have oily and acne-prone skin, try this lightweight gel moisturizer. The formula combines salicylic acid to help clear blemishes and prevent new ones from forming, hyaluronic acid to hydrate and seboclear-MP that helps absorb excess oil and diminish the look of enlarged pores.
