While you might think that oily skin doesn’t need any further moisturising, it’s very much the opposite!
While you might think that oily skin doesn’t need any further moisturising, it’s very much the opposite! Greasiness is often caused by dehydration, as the body goes into reaction mode and amps up the sebum production.
Re-balance this over-stimulation by choosing a moisturiser that specifically targets oily skin. They’ll help to treat any blemishes and provide just enough hydration without saturating your (already shiny) skin.
OUR TOP OILY SKIN MOISTURISERS
ALPHA-H ESSENTIAL HYDRATION CREAM
Alpha-H Essential Hydration Cream works well on oily skin, as its formulation includes the soothing essential oil, arnica. It helps to promote healthy collagen production, thereby improving firmness and suppleness (making this moisturiser perfect for ageing skin, too). To use, simply apply all over the face and neck and wait for it to absorb.
MEDIK8 HYDR8 DAY 360
With a blend of humectants, this light, anti-ageing moisturiser is gentle enough to use on greasy complexions. The vitamin C in Medik8 Hydr8 Day 360 illuminates and helps clear up blemishes, while natural extracts work to strengthen the skin’s barriers against the elements. Great for use every morning.
SKINCEUTICALS RENEW OVERNIGHT OILY-COMBINATION
Contining a 10% hydroxy acid blend, Skinceuticals Renew Overnight Oily-Combination will not only hydrate but exfoliate your skin, too.

ALPHA-H LIQUID GOLD REJUVENATING CREAM
This non-greasy moisturiser will provide a serious dose of glycolic acid, along with a generous helping of hydration. Alpha-H Liquid Gold Rejuvenating Cream encourages skin-clearing, with the glycolic helping to melt away old skin cells, so the new ones can shine through. Ideal for those tending towards mature skin, it also aids with softening and nourishment.
