When your face is feeling flushed, sweaty and sticky, the last thing you feel like doing is adding anything to it. But it's so important you do, because all skin types need hydration, even when the temperature is soaring. Yes, even oily skin, and here's why: dehydrated skin lacks water and is a skin condition, while dry skin lacks natural oils and is a skin type. So even oily skin can become dehydrated.
And with summertime a constant rotation of air-conditioning, salty ocean water, chlorinated pools, reapplying sunscreen multiple times and maybe exfoliating more than usual, it's not surprising that the summer season can leave all skin types feeling unbalanced and less glowy than usual.
The solution: a summer-approved serum, one that's light enough so that it doesn't feel like you're wearing anything on your face, but that still packs a hydrating (and maybe brightening or line-smoothing) punch. Like this lineup!
