Staying hydrated and fresh this summer has to be one of your top priorities. It’s summer and you could surely use a break, but your skin shouldn’t be left out of the fun. Due to the change in weather, some of your skincare products or routine may need a little tweaking.
Moisturizers are an important step in your skincare routine, one you shouldn’t miss. They help keep your skin hydrated and lock in all the moisture so it looks supple and fresh all day. Having the right moisturizer for your skin type is also essential during this period. I’m here for multipurpose moisturizers, especially with the rise of the skinimalism beauty trend where people are trying as much as possible to scale down the number of beauty and skincare products. Without any more delays, let’s get into the list of the 7 best moisturizers to keep your skin hydrated.
7 Moisturisers Suitable For This Summer
1. Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb
Water cream moisturizers are one of the best when it comes to keeping your skin hydrated. This moisturizer is the perfect weightless moisturizer for a day out on the beach. The moisturizer contains botanical extracts and the star ingredient is lady mantle, an antibacterial free radical scavenger. There are additional antioxidants like oat kernel extracts, and hydration is provided through squalane and glycerin. The texture is light making it perfect to be used alone and can also be used under your foundation.
2. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel
An all-time favourite that never gets old is the Neutrogena Hydro Boost. The great thing about this moisturizer is that it can be used in all seasons, not just in summer. This gel moisturizer is perfect to keep normal skin types moisturized. The formula is lightweight and it gets absorbed into the skin fast – in about 30 seconds to be precise. The best thing about this moisturizer is that it’s super budget-friendly, so you don’t need so much to stay hydrated with plump skin this summer.

A nourishing and hydrating moisturizer is all you need for a day out this summer, especially if you have dry skin.

You will be getting the best combination of ingredients in one moisturizer that will hydrate and repair damaged skin barriers for healthier skin.
I love brands that find ways to bring skincare into makeup and Clinique is one of such brands. Clinique Even Better Refresh Hydrating and Repairing foundation is a very good one if you’re in the market for a hydrating skincare-infused foundation.
4. Ole Henriksen C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer
Making use of multiple serums and products to protect against free radicals can be too complex for some people. This moisturizer comes packed with all the goodness you need to keep your skin fresh all through summer.

The moisturizer comes loaded with SPF 50 to not only hydrate but protects your skin from harmful sun rays.
It also contains antioxidants from coffee seeds and apples, shea butter, and hydrating glycerin. Liquorice and niacinamide found in the moisturizer also help to improve your skin tone.
