Even though your skin may have excess oil, it still needs hydration and protection from a moisturizer. The key is finding a light moisturizer that will still keep the skin hydrated without clogging pores. Avoid using moisturizers that contain parabens, propylene glycol, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, or artificial colours. Look for more natural ingredients like hylauronic acid, which helps bind moisture in the skin without being too heavy or congesting the skin.
