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.
