The Best Summer Moisturizer for Oily, Blemish-Prone Skin

22 Jun 2022

Great under makeup, for oily-skin, this summer and all year round. 

When you think of summer skincare, the last thing that probably comes to mind is moisturizing. The last step in every expert-approved skincare regimen is reserved for cold-weather months and those with dry or dehydrated skin—right? This myth couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, moisturizing is key for all skin types, even those with oily, blemish-prone skin, and is recommended by our experts all year-round, no matter how hot out. 

“When you don’t put a moisturizer on your face, you’re signaling to your pores that you’re good and don’t need anything else,” Jessie Giammalva, a licensed esthetician and Youth to the People staffer, tells us. “But your skin still needs that moisture, so it may start to overproduce oil to compensate for any lack in the skin.” 

An oily complexion is a sign that the skin is out of balance and is craving that extra support made possible by a high-quality moisturizer. That’s where YTTP’s Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream comes in. Known for being lightweight—a must-have for summer—this 2020 Allure Best of Beauty award-winning best seller helps keep skin moisturized—not oily—with its formula containing A+ ingredients, like an antioxidant-rich superfood blend and hyaluronic acid (HA), a hydration powerhouse found in a handful of fan-favorite YTTP products. 

The Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream is formulated with cross-linked HA, meaning it aids in restoring, replenishing, and firming the look of skin. Don’t underestimate its lightweight look and feel—the skin is will get a burst of long-lasting hydration with every application. Formulated with kale, a source of skin-loving phytonutrients and vitamins C and E,  Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream is a glowing addition to any skincare routine. 

As for Giammalva’s personal experience with the Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream, the esthetician, who describes herself as a longtime fan, admits her beauty routine transformed upon introducing the vegan, cruelty-free moisturizer to her daily regimen. 

“It's fantastic under makeup. I haven’t touched a primer since finding this product because this moisturizer provides the perfect grip and base,” she says, adding, “It has also brought my skin to balance.”
