When your skin type is oily, some parts of your face may appear shinier than normal. If you don’t invest in a good moisturizer, your face tends to produce more oil to hydrate itself, which could lead to further breakouts and blackheads. Fortunately, there are affordable and effective moisturizers that can treat facial blemishes and imperfections.

Below are some of the best facial moisturizers that you need to add to your routine if you have oily skin:

  1. Simple Hydrating Moisturizer

With a fast-absorbing formula, this prevents the skin from feeling sticky or appearing sweaty to others. This lightweight moisturizer is more suitable for oily skin because it evaporates faster than water-based products and doesn’t clog the pores or the top layers of your skin. It can keep your skin moisturized and hydrated for at least 12 hours so you don’t need to constantly re-apply every once in a while unlike other moisturizers. In addition, the Simple Hydrating Moisturizer does not contain any harmful ingredients and chemicals that could upset your skin.
