Whether you’re hitting the overheated subway or transitioning from an arid air-conditioned office environment to balmy outdoor temps, summer demands a lot from your skin. And that’s even before the sun’s harmful rays get involved. To help your dermis operate at its full capacity, keep it well hydrated. Since our go-to moisturizers typically feel too thick for summer, it’s a great time to switch to a water-based formula. Like an actual drink of water for our faces, these creams, gels, and lotions will fuel your complexion with moisture. Here, our favorite water-based moisturizers to keep things smooth and supple all season long.
