3. Moisturizer

Moisturizers are necessary, even for those with oily skin, as it helps to balance out the skin’s natural oil and sebum levels. If you find that cream is too thick or heavy for your skin, try out a lightweight moisturizer like a hydrating gel influenced by vitamins and humectants. No matter your skin condition or if you use hydrating serums, it is always important to remember to seal it all in with a moisturizer before bed and finish off with sunscreen after the morning hours.
