Which skin needs an oil-free moisturizer?

Da nào cần kem dưỡng ẩm không chứa dầu?

There are many different types of moisturizers on the market today. In particular, oil-free moisturizers are also a very popular moisturizing solution.

Regarding this topic, Dermalogica received questions from readers sent to us, which are summarized as follows:

How do I know if my skin is suitable for an oil-free moisturizer? Does Dermalogica have any oil-free moisturizers?

We would like to answer "all" questions from readers right away!

Determine the skin type that should use an oil-free moisturizer

To determine which skin needs an oil-free moisturizer. First you need to know your skin type. The second is the climate and weather conditions where you live and work.

The oil-free, thin and light moisturizers easily penetrate into the skin and give a more airy cool feeling. This moisturizing line is perfect for naturally oily, acne-prone or combination skin. Even if your skin is normally dry, sometimes using an oil-free moisturizer is just right for the seasons.

If you live in a tropical climate, hot and humid all year round, an oil-free moisturizer is preferrably used. Especially in summer, even normal and dry skin needs just enough moisture, not too thick like in winter.

What's the difference between an oil-free moisturizer and an oil-based moisturizer?

All skins benefit from using moisturizing skin care products. However, moisturizers with or without oil in the ingredients will have different formulas and levels of moisture balance.

In general, oil-free moisturizers are often lighter and penetrate faster when applied on the skin. Suitable for hot and humid climates all year round. Easy to use for normal, oily, combination or acne-prone skin.

Besides the oil-free moisturizer, if you're also looking for an oil-free sunscreen for oily and acne-prone skin then check out this article.
