Top 5 Moisturisers for Oily Skin in Australian Summer

 Top 5 Moisturisers for Oily Skin in Australian Summer


If you’re in Australia you’ve probably realised that spring has sprung! Which means that summer is just around the corner. If you’re in Queensland, let's face it - it's summer already. 

Warmer temperatures mean it’s time to revamp your skin care routine. For those of us with oily skin this is even more important. 



Summer in Australia means more UV exposure and higher humidity. Both of these can spell trouble for our skin, causing more sun spots and breakouts. Which means we need to adapt our skincare accordingly.  

For a lot of people, the biggest skin difference from winter to summer comes down to hydration and oiliness in the skin. While winter dries our skin out, in summer the humidity often leaves our skin feeling as though its melting. 



One way to ensure our skin doesn’t get too oily is to find the perfect summer moisturiser. The ideal candidate is something that’s hydrating but light enough to avoid the summer slick.





Top 5 Moisturisers for Oily Skin in Australian Summer 

Here is our list of our top moisturisers for oily skin for Australian Summer this year.


1 Summer Moisturiser Pick 1: SOME BY MI AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Cream 


This beautiful cream is a cult favourite because it is packed with tea tree, AHA, BHA and PHA. These ingredients not only work to remove dead skin but also the dirt and debris that clogs pores and contributes to breakouts.

Best of all, the non-greasy formulation makes it perfect for summer skin care. 


2 Summer Moisturiser Pick 2: Innisfree Green Tea Seed Hyaluronic Cream

The green tea extract of Beauty Green Tea™, the rich moisture of five types of hyaluronic acid, and the formula added with panthenol soothe the skin.

This nourishing cream is infused with antioxidant-rich green tea extract, skin-nourishing panthenol, squalane and ceramides to lock in moisture by creating a protective barrier, shielding skin from moisture loss.


3 Summer Moisturiser Pick 3: APLB Aloe Hyaluronic Cream


APLB make some of our favourite moisturisers and this Aloe Hyaluronic Cream is no exception.

Not only does it work to softly hydrate, it also smoothes the skin's surface thanks to summer skincare essential aloe vera.

We love it for combination skin types as it strikes the right balance between hydration and mattifying. In addition, it comes in a texture that won't leave your skin looking or feeling oily. 

Finally, it has a perfectly balanced with a PH of 5.5 which also helps to reduce irritation. 

4 Summer Moisturiser Pick 4: APLB Centella Cica Repair Cream


This light weight repair cream not only boosts the skin's barrier, but also boosts dull skin. It is also an ideal option for those with sensitive skin because it’s formulated with soothing ingredients like Mugwort, Centella and Beta Glucan. In addition, it contains Tea Tree Leaf Extract which is a gentle alternative for acne sufferers. 


5 Summer Moisturiser Pick 5: Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel

This is such a great option for a summer cream because it has soothing properties. They not only take the heat out of the skin but also provide a divine cooling sensation.

Further, the formula measures in at a pH of between 5.5 - 6, making this gel ideal for all skin types. To make the most out of the cooling sensation you can also leave this bad boy in the fridge.


Other Summer Skin Care TIps 

Sunscreen Removal

When it comes to your cleansers, we still recommend double cleansing every night. This is essential for helping to properly remove all that sunscreen you'll be wearing.

At night, start your skin care routine with an oil or cleansing balm and then moving to a powder or gel cleanser


Intensive Care For Anti-Aging in Super 

Summer is not the time to load up on heavy, thick or rich creams. But that doesn't mean you want to throw your anti-aging routine out the window altogether. 

Instead, swap over to a lighter, jelly-textured sleeping mask. Something like Jelly Ko'sCherry Blossom Sleeping Mask cares for all the key concerns overnight while you sleep so that you wake up to softer, plumper, bouncier skin the next morning. 




Oily Skin Treatments

If you are finding your skin is getting a bit more clogged and congested than usual, then we also recommend adding a clay mask to your routine 2-3 times a week.

Simply pop one on for 5 – 6 minutes or until the mask starts to dry and then wash off. Your skin will become noticeably clearer and less congested.

Subi Holo Dream Brightening Pore Minimising Mask

This mask really is a dream!

It is made from beautiful ingredients like Australian Kakadu Plum, Centella Asiatica and Kaolin and works to purify, detoxify and brighten the skin.

It also comes with a handy spatula for application and leaves your skin with a holo sheen which gives you an amazing glow underneath your makeup. We love!
