Moisturisers are an important part of your skincare regime, and help to keep your skin hydrated. Not enough moisture leads to excessive sebum production, which means more pimples! However, it can be tough to find the right moisturiser. For one, a moisturiser that is too heavy can prevent evaporation, and lead to clogged pores. Lightweight but full on hydrating benefits, gel moisturisers are a great option for Singapore’s sunny, humid climate. Here are 8 gel moisturisers to consider, no matter your skin type, for when you go about your day.
