It’s a common myth that those with oily skin don’t have to moisturize since their skin is already quite hydrated, but this is actually far from the truth. Skipping on a moisturizer can end up making their problems worse since the skin tries to overcompensate for lack of moisture by producing more oil. The best way to keep the skin hydrated without adding excess moisture is to opt for an oil-free, lightweight moisturizer and to stay clear of the richer, heavier formulations. Keywords like “water-based,” “lightweight” and “gel-formulation” are the types of products you want to look for when buying moisturizers for oily skin. Doing your research ahead of time will save you time and money – and will ensure you get the best product for oily skin.
The Tatcha Water Cream has raving reviews on Sephora and especially so for those with oily skin. It’s oil-free, water-based and absorbs quickly into the skin which is key for those trying to avoid an added sheen to their skin. This product also has key ingredients that oily skin thrive on such as Japanese wild rose and leopard lily that balance the skin, minimize pores and reduce oil production.
