Moisturiser For Oily Skin

Choosing The Best Moisturiser For Oily Skin


It’s entirely possible that your skin is naturally oily. Though it’s just as likely that a product you’re using is causing or exacerbating that shine - so it pays to look closely at the products you use regularly, or semi-regularly. As a general rule, if you have oily skin you should avoid heavy creams and lotions. Gels and light lotions are the way to go. Still, always read the label on any skin cream you use. In most cases they will state whether they are suitable for oily skin.

The best moisturisers for oily skin are often the simplest, which is why we recommend NIVEA Daily Essentials Tinted Moisturising Day Cream to balance your skin and complexion every day. It’s perfect for all skin-types and is often effective as foundation.

An oil-free BB cream also has the bonus of filtering out UVA/UVB rays while it provides moisture and a light tint.


Choosing the best moisturiser for oily skin isn’t just about getting the lightest products possible. Make sure you consider your whole skincare routine, and the ingredients that go with it.

Magnolia Extract – This helps prevent skin impurities. It is derived from the Magnolia plant and is also known for its antibacterial properties. NIVEA 3-in-1 Daily Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes are rich in Magnolia Extract and specially designed for those of you with oily skin type.

Ocean Minerals – These minerals hydrate skin all day and are quickly absorbed by the skin.

Hydra IQ ‐ NIVEA’s own innovative Hydra IQ technology increases the formation of aquaporins, our skin’s natural water channels. Hydra IQ penetrates and retains moisture deep in the skin and can be found in the NIVEA Daily Essentials 2-in-1 Wash and Scrub.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
