Hot Right Now: Gel Creams

Hot Right Now: Gel Creams

Gel creams aren’t only for oily skin—newer formulations pack tons of moisture into these lightweight textures that quench even the driest skin. Every Spring, my skin gets really oily as the weather starts to warm up and that’s when I know its time to put aside my rich, winter moisturizers and switch to a lighter gel cream.

If you experience the same thing, try opting for a lighter texture until your skin balances out. As an extra little tip—keep your gel cream in the fridge for a refreshing, invigorating experience! Here are six of our favorite formulas.
