Breaking Up With Your Moisturiser This Summer? Have an Affair With This Instead
Come the hot and humid summer months, your regular moisturiser may feel a bit too cloying, clingy and overly stuffy. Why not try a summer fling with a gel moisturiser instead? It's a genius idea and one that I got from our Facebook group The British Beauty Line. One of the group put out the question: "Hey gals. I love the texture of moisturising gels for summer—does anyone have any recommendations?Xo." It was a drugstore buy (featured below) that got the biggest thumbs-up from those who responded.
Here I've pulled together nine gel moisturisers that are lighter than regular day creams. They are ideal for anyone with spot-prone skin, as many of them are oil-free. Most are also packed with hyaluronic acid, so they're a godsend for anyone who suffers from a dehydrated, tight-feeling complexion at this time of year. Dive into our edit of the best gel moisturisers below and prepare to feel refreshed by just reading about them.
This watermelon-infused product isn't just Instagram friendly—it soothes and hydrates spot-prone and sensitive skin types. Hyaluronic acid leaves your complexion feeling juicy and looking seriously dewy.
Try this real drugstore hit that's highly recommended by our Facebook group for being both affordable and effective at hydrating dry complexions and keeping them that way.
If fine lines and wrinkles are a concern, you may feel a gel just won't cut it. This boasts omega oils to boost elasticity and soften lines. Hyaluronic acid plumps and tightens, leaving skin looking more youthful after application and with continued use.
For dull, dehydrated skin types, this gel cream offers the double whammy of hydrating hyaluronic acid and papaya enzymes to nibble away at complexion-dulling dead skin.
This one is at a good mid-range price point. It's a lightweight cooling gel that's designed to boost radiance (and, of course, hydration) in combination skin types. It hydrates and helps to retain moisture throughout the day.
For anyone who loves the idea of La Mer's cult cream but finds it too heavy, this lightweight gel-cream hybrid delivers the brand's Miracle Broth into the skin but won't clog or irritate spot-prone or sensitive skin types. Need more convincing? Victoria Beckham said on her Insta story recently that she is "obsessed with this."
The Damyang bamboo water contained in this gel provides the skin with vital minerals and amino acids. This is a great product to turn to in place of a traditional aftersun or whenever your skin is acting out due to stress or hormones.
Team Byrdie is full of Dr Dennis Gross fans, and this product is no exception. This oil-free moisturiser creates a cushion between your skin and the environmental aggressors to leave your complexion not only thirst-quenched but also protected. It's great for city-dwellers.
This silky moisturiser is like a tall, refreshing glass of water for your skin. Dry and dehydrated complexions will drink this up. It's lightweight enough for oily and combination skin types, too.
