Why: The hotter it gets, the scarier it is for those of us with oily, sensitive skin. Moisturizer is a necessity, but if you sweat at all, you’re bound to break out. I’ve been stuck in the cycle for years, pleading for a longer spring so I can show my face a little longer before I stock up on concealer and admit defeat.
Luckily, I’ve managed to outsmart Mother Nature (just like the butter commercial!). My summer solution? Vitamin C Oil-Free Moisturizer from Avalon Organics, which manages to rehydrate and tone my skin without oil, without residue, and without worry. It’s even slightly mattifying, which means it works under makeup, should you be bold enough to try eyeliner when it’s 90 degrees outside…
Allergy Alert! This Vitamin C is partially derived from soy, so if you’re terrorized by tofu, skip this one.
