Plenty of women and men avoid moisturizing out of worries that it will make their skin oily, but in fact a good, lightweight moisturizer can be the strongest, most age-defying product in your line up of healthy skin care products. Why? It may sound counter intuitive but a good, lightweight moisturizer can actually reduce excess oil production. Skin that’s under-moisturized gets dehydrated, and while it may not become truly “dry,” the skin’s natural reaction is to produce extra oil in an attempt to capture more moisture.
What you can do: Choose an oil-free, lightweight moisturizer, and for even greater convenience choose one with a sunscreen to help reduce the risk of early age signs like fine lines even further. Our pick: Dermalogica Active Moist. This adaptable, nourishing moisturizer is light enough to work beautifully for a range of skin types, and its oil-free formula creates an ultra-thin, powerful layer of moisture that helps protect and refresh skin invisibly.
For more intensive correction, another Dermalogica product may be the best choice — Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance.
