6 summer-sanctioned lightweight moisturizers

Humid summer temperatures mean three things for your skin: more swipes of deodorant, major SPF uptake and the struggle to keep skin from stressing out. In the heat of the season, say no to thick, heavy lotions. Instead, increase hydration with one of these lightweight wonders.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion Sheer Hydration Lightweight Moisturizer
It’s no surprise that this moisturizer has been cherished for generations: It’s affordable, calming, leaves skin soft and hydrates for 24 hours. So what’s different in this new formula? It’s just as effective as the original, but goes on feather-light and absorbs in seconds—perfect for summertime.
 
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion Sheer Hydration, $14, mass-market retailers and drugstores.
 
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Lightweight moisturizers
Even if you have oily skin, dehydrated patches can still show on your face. Try a gel moisturizer—it absorbs quickly without adding shine. This refreshing water-based formula helps fortify your skin's moisture barrier with olive extract and glycerin.
 
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream, $25, mass-market retailers and drugstores.
 
Clinique All About Eyes
This gel-like eye cream absorbs easily and has a light, cooling feel. The formula is a dream: caffeine depuffs, linoleic acid repairs the skin’s barrier, whey protein stimulates collagen and vitamin E and green tea extract provide antioxidants.
 
Clinique All About Eyes, $37, clinique.ca.

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask
If your skin is thirsty after a day spent dockside, this cooling and calming mask can help soothe, repair and rehydrate irritated skin post­–­sun exposure. Packed with aloe, cucumber, sugarcane and chamomile, this mask nourishes and detoxifies.
 
Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask, $56, sephora.ca.


Vaseline Spray & Go
This unique spray-on body lotion is different from other moisturizers on the market. Designed to shave off precious minutes from your morning routine, the continuous spray nozzle distributes lotion in a constant, even stream. Because it absorbs in seconds, there’s little to no downtime before you can get dressed.
 
Vaseline Spray & Go, $9, available at mass retailers and drugstores.
Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Revitalizing Gel-Lotion
A silky, watery gel texture combined with a cooling effect results in a lotion that revitalizes your skin, even on the most humid days. The hero ingredient is Silver Ear Mushroom extract; it holds up to 500 times its own weight in water, making it just as effective as hyaluronic acid, the gold-standard ingredient for nourishing dehydrated skin.
 
Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Revitalizing Gel-Lotion, $54, sephora.ca.
