Six Super Lightweight Hydrators Made for Steamy Summer Days

Hydrators
Even if you’re the kind of guy that’s totally committed to your skincare regimen, the current weather situation is probably enough to dissuade you from dipping into your favorite jar of moisturizer. There’s something inherently unpleasant about smearing lotion on one’s face when the hot and heavy air has succeeded in making it as slick as a Slip ‘n’ Slide. But even in the summer, it’s important to stick to your routine. This also applies to you pimple-prone dudes as using drying anti-acne treatments sans moisturizer can make oil production go into over-drive. The alternative is to lighten up with gel-based hydration. They provide the necessary moisture minus the weight and impart a cooling sensation, a plus when the mercury is hovering around 90. Here are six that will see you through to fall and beyond.
