One of the good things about living in a tropical (read: humid) country is that we don't have to keep changing our choice of moisturizer. Because there are no drastic seasonal changes, we can stick to the same lightweight yet hydrating formulas all year round! The only challenge left is finding the right moisturizer that will fit the bill. Check out our top picks below.

Emulsions can be just as hydrating as your average moisturizer, if not a little more weightless! For one, this product was specifically made for combination skin types, so it hydrates and mattifies at the same time.

If you have exfoliating acids like retinol on rotation, a moisturizer with SPF like this one will always come in handy for extra protection.
