    Hydration is super important for acne-prone skin types. When the skin isn’t given enough hydration, it produces more oil to compensate, which can result in more clogged pores and more acne! The Clear Start Matte Moisturiser SPF15 from Dermalogica is ultra-light so it hydrates, while controlling oily areas, leaving the skin comfortable, yet matte.

    This day time moisturiser with SPF is perfect for those who use an SPF makeup daily but are looking for that extra bit of protection.
