If you are looking for the best moisturiser for oily skin, always pick up one that is non-comedogenic and doesn't clog your pores or cause breakouts

With so many moisturisers in the beauty market, how do you even know which one suits your specific skin type? As part of a critical step of an overall beauty routine, finding the right moisturiser should never be overlooked. For those with oily skin, it is even more important. So which is the best moisturiser for oily skin? Let's find out.

As you know, moisturisation is key to a good skincare regime, even for those with oily skin types. That's because even an overly oil producing skin type lacks proper nourishment without the use of a moisturiser. In fact, sometimes your skin over produces oil in order to compensate for lack of moisturisation. Unfortunately, not all moisturisers suit every oily skin gal.

In your search for the best moisturiser for oily skin, always pick up one that is non-comedogenic and doesn't clog your pores or cause breakouts. But you can appear less greasy with the right ones. 

In order to keep oily skin under control, you must focus on ingredients with hyaluronic acid and glycerin for skin hydration. Additionally, choose oil-free and silicone-free formula to prevent clogging of pores. 

Scroll down to check out not just the one best moisturiser for oily skin but nine of the best ones. These are guaranteed to unclog your pores while getting the shine under control.
