10 Water-Based Moisturisers To Keep Your Skin Hydrated Through Summer

Moisturiser is absolutely essential to skincare, and that too all year long. Whether your skin type is dry, combination, oily or sensitive—bypassing the hydration step can leave it dehydrated, dull, and prone to breakouts.

During the colder months maintaining supple skin is a challenge for most, and rich, cream-based moisturisers become the clear choice. But as we transition from winter to summer, it’s advisable to switch up your skin regimen keeping the weather in mind. Dense and heavy moisturisers can leave your skin feeling clogged-up and greasy. Which is why, for warm and humid weather, water-based gel formulas should be your go-to. They provide ample hydration minus the congestion, and they’re just as efficacious as their denser counterparts. Devoid of fatty ingredients, they are usually loaded with high doses of hyaluronic acid or other natural, moisture-rich ingredients like glacial water and botanical extracts. Lightweight in consistency, they easily absorb into the skin and lock in moisture, resulting in smooth, bouncy skin with youthful dewiness, but free from shine.

This summer, do your skin a favour and treat it to a thirst-quenching, water-rich, oil-free formula from our edit, to keep it healthy and hydrated.
