Pro-tip: Oily faces need moisturizer, too. But if regular, oil-based face creams aren't working so hot, switch to gel. It's water-based (and often chock full of hyaluronic acid—something your body needs anyway!), so there's no way it can clog pores. Additional qualities that are good: quick absorption, cooling effects, and some additional plump pre-makeup application. It's a win-win-win. Thank us later. (But before that, share your favorites below. Currently playing at ITG—the Nars Skin Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturizer.)
