Gel Is Having a Major Moment in Skin Care Right Now
Lately we've been seeing one word over and over again at the beauty desk — gel. Now these are not the same blue cleansers you used as a pimply preteen to dry out zits overnight. First of all, the technology is much more advanced, and you won't find any microbeads suspended in these viscous products. The new iteration of the old trend is much more moisturizing than the predecessors.
Gels have always been the standby solution for women with oily skin because they quickly get rid of shine. But each of these new launches has improved the old category with extra hydration. You won't have to worry about a sticky residue or peeling. They are just as hydrating as thick cream formulas minus the greasy finish. Finally, you don't have to reserve your favorite gel moisturizer just for the humid Summer months. Shop our favorite new-age gels below.
