While moisture is important in the summer (all that sun can be hella drying), equally vital is the type you are getting. Too thick and creamy and you could break out. According to Dr. Shamban, you should avoid products that contain cocoa butter or heavy oils (jojoba, coconut, mineral) as these can clog pores and lead to those dreaded summer breakouts.
Instead, look for lightweight moisturizers that are water-based, and those that contain hyaluronic acid. Says Shamban, "Hyaluronic acid's quick and effective hydrating action helps keep collagen and elastin moist and functioning, which helps keep you looking supple and youthful." If your skin feels super-dry, she says that anti-inflammatory oils, like flaxseed and grapeseed, are great hydrators that won't trigger breakouts.
