My favorite warm-weather moisturizers

Skincare needs can differ as much from season to season as it can from person to person.  As we transition into spring, gone is the need for oil-rich mega moisturizers, and new skincare issues pop into our minds.  Controlling oil, soothing sensitivity, and counter-acting sun damage.  And if you think moisturizer is not as important during the summer months as it is during the winter when dry skin is prevalent, think again.  Warm weather generally means less makeup, so it's even more important for your skin to radiate on its own.  Check out these great, lightweight moisturizers below, that will leave your skin feeling moisturized without feeling like you have a heavy cream on.  
This gel texture moisturizer feels like pure luxury on the skin.  It contains 3 different types of roses, giving it a light scent and letting us reap all the benefits of one of Nature's finest ingredients.  White Rose soothes the skin, Black Rose enhances skin tone, and Pastel Rose is packed with anti-oxidants to protect the skin.   

Dr Jart Water Fuse Water-Sure Gel ($38) 
A truly refreshing, oil-free, gel-cream moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid to nourish the skin.  Olive leaf strengthens the skin, and cranberry helps to improve elasticity.  This one is great for even the most sensitive skin because it's free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, synthetic dyes, 
alcohol, and mineral oils. 


Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer ($26.50) 
This is a lightweight cream helps to revive lackluster skin.  Skin is energized with coffee bean, which has great age-fighting, anti-oxidant properties. Ingredients like Ginseng, Grapefruit oil, Spearmint oil, and Lemon oil are as good for your soul as they are for your skin.  These ingredients encourage energy while soothing the skin.  

Nars Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-free Moisturizer ($58)
Are we noticing a trend here with the gel textures?  These new lightweight formulas are so soothing and refreshing on the skin, as well as hydrating.  This particular Aqua Gel is meant to improve water retention so that skin feels more supple over time.  NARS developed a Light Reflecting Complex™ to make skin look luminous and healthy.  This one is also good for sensitive skin as it's free of parabens, alcohol, oil, and synthetic fragrances.  

Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Matifying Fluid ($39) 
If shine is a concern for you during warm weather months, the smallest amount of this concentrated formula will leave you feeling shine-free for hours.  It mattifies the skin with Flax Seed Powder, rather than harmful sulfates or synthetics.  Even though skin is mattified with this formula, it still feels hydrated because of ingredients from grapes (Organic Grape Water, and Grape Seed Polyphenols), which also give amazing anti-oxidant benefits.
