Summer-Friendly Moisturizers

07/07/2013 10:45 pm ET | Updated Sep 06, 2013

Summer is here and for some, that means finding a new skin care routine -- something lighter in weight that will also be compatible with the different temperatures experienced in the summer. In the winter, most individuals tend to buy a moisturizer that will allow our skin to hydrate -- since in the winter skin tends to get drier, women lean towards somewhat oilier moisturizers. However, in the summer it's best to stick to a moisturizer that nourishes your skin but is also lightweight and does not have many oils remaining on the surface of your skin -- essentially, a moisturizer that has a matte finish to it in comparison to our winter moisturizers.

Every summer women go on the hunt to find the best summer moisturizers, so we thought we would make your lives easier by helping you out with that dilemma!

Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer

This is a Holy Grail item for those who have combination/oily skin! Clean and Clears dual action moisturizer will be your best friend this summer if you constantly fear of having breakouts -- since this won't cause any! Instead, it nourishes your skin and ensures that you don't break out this summer!

Caudalie Premiers Vandanges Moisturizing Cream

The best thing about Caudalie is that their lotion is not greasy at all nor does it look heavy under your makeup, instead it helps smooth your foundation out! This moisturizer is perfect for those who prefer no mineral oil, parabens or chemicals in their lotion as that causes pore clogging -- if you're looking for a lighter lotion that'll also improve your skin and overall makeup, then this is for you!

Bona Clara Skin Care Package

Bona Clara equips their customers with the option of picking from specific age groups. Once your age group is selected, you'll be introduced to a whole line of products that your skin will thank you for. Although they don't have a specific moisturizer, they do sell an anti-aging cream formulated for your age group which does double the work and works as a moisturizer and anti-aging cream. Also, this is beneficial to those who only like to use natural products on their face since all their products have that.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

This moisturizer is perfect, but also on the pricier side. If you're willing to splurge, then Clinique's lotion can definitely be on your favourites list. The lotion itself is very balanced and ensures your skin remains moist throughout the day while making sure there aren't too many oils on it.

Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturizing Daily Body Gel

Also, to those who don't only want to moisturize their face, gel moisturizers are highly recommended to be used in the summer! When the heat hits your face, there will be no need to worry about having an oily face since the gel hydrates your face but ensures that the surface of your face will not get oily as it absorbs quickly into the skin and does not leave any residue behind to create a greasy look.
