The Best Lightweight Moisturisers For Summer

In the summer, when the time comes to finally put away the jumpers and bring out the summer dresses, we all strive for smooth, glowing skin.

However, keeping your skin healthy in the warmer months can be tricky, with both the sun and sweat reducing moisture levels, which can lead to that dreaded scaly look we all hate having to deal with. Of course, when it comes to radiant skin, moisturiser is key. Yet the last thing we all want in the summer heat is a moisturiser that feels heavy on the skin and makes you feel suffocated. Because this just causes you to sweat more and for your pores to become blocked…

So, to help out, we’ve picked out our favourite lightweight moisturisers that will keep your skin supported and hydrated in the heat, without adding to it!
