Beauty Counter: Shine-Free Moisturizers


So here’s the problem: We’re told over and over the importance of keeping our skin hydrated (inside and out), and yet come summertime, we’re left to choose between a greasy film or uncomfortably tight skin. How to deal? Try these matte hydrators, that will keep your skin feeling–and looking–its best.

 

1) Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Stay Matte Hydrator

This face moisturizer manages to keep skin hydrated without contributing shine. Brown algae and light-scattering optics help reduce the appearance of pores and leave skin with a velvety soft, matte finish.

$43; www.clinique.ca

 

2) Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF 30

As if moisturizers weren’t enough trouble on the shiny skin front in summer, sunscreens can add another layer of grease in your skin care routine. Thankfully, this SPF-enhanced moisturizer, outfitted with oil-absorbing microspheres to keep skin matte, leaves skin hydrated and protected–sans shine. It’s also artificial fragrance and colour free for sensitive skin.

$54; www.dermalogica.com

 

3) Vichy Normaderm Total Mat Hydrating Gel

Our test-driver loved this refreshing hydrator, which gives a soothing sensation when applied. With moisturizing glycerine and Vichy thermal spa water on the one hand, and oil-absorbing micro-powders and perlite (an active ingredient of volcanic origin that sops up perspiration) on the other, this pick promises all-day, shine-free hydration you can count on.

$27.95, available at Shoppers Drug Mart
