Using a moisturizer is key to keeping oil production under control. Don’t skip it! “People confuse oil with hydration, so they don’t properly hydrate the skin. We now have really great ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, that can help balance oil and water in the skin. By balancing the water in the skin, you’ll have a better barrier, which can help to control oil production,” says Day.
We love Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisturizer. The lightweight fluid contains silica to sop up oil but doesn’t skimp on hydrating ingredients like glycerin. It leaves behind a faintly dewy finish, so skin looks healthy and ever so slightly shiny — but only in a good way.
