Meet the Best Face Moisturizer for Oily Skin - the Tropical Day Cream

What makes the Tropical Day Cream the best face moisturizer for oily skin?
Sweaty weather—whether you happen to be in St Barts or St Louis—calls for Pour Moi Tropical Day Cream, which will keep your skin smooth, clear, and radiant when temperatures are high (between 75°F — 120°F) and humidity is through the roof (between 65% — 100%). Your skin’s natural response to heat paired with humidity is...you guessed it, a greasy surface. Here are 8 reasons why the best face moisturizer for oily skin, our Tropical Day Cream, is the hottest moisturizer under the sun - and how it will keep your skin from looking slick.
It’s Brimming with Antioxidants.
Antioxidants are ingredients that fight free radicals, which are damaging molecules that come from pollution, cigarette smoke, and other gunk in the air. Basically, these molecules are short, one electron, and go deep within your skin on a mad search for an electron to steal, and their scavenging causes damage and hyperpigmentation. (Imagine burglars ransacking a house.) Antioxidants take one for the team by offering up an electron, which “neutralizes” the free radical. The Tropical Day Cream packs many antioxidants, including Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E - all of which are microencapsulated for stability and release and diffuse into your skin at the right moment and location.
The Best Face Moisturizer for Oily Skin Keeps Pores Clear.
Humid air carries irritants and dirt that can clog pores. The Tropical Day Cream contains Coconut Acid, which ensures pores stay clean, clear, and invisible.
It Helps Skin Stay Moisturized.
We know what you’re thinking, moisture? The last thing I need right now is more moisture—I’ve got plenty of it glistening on my face! But sweat actually dehydrates the skin, so while your face may look hydrated, it’s actually dry. Moisturizing is the key to rebalancing skin. The Tropical Day Cream contains three sizes of hyaluronic acid molecules—large ones to grab water from the air, and small and medium ones to steal H2O from water deep within the skin stored from the drinks and foods we consume. The hyaluronic acid molecules are combined with rare white truffle extract to form a proprietary blend called HyalurTruf+, which helps skin find its moisture balance in tropical weather conditions.
The Best Face Moisturizer for Oily Skin is Super Lightweight.
When it’s hot and humid outside, the last thing you want to do is slather on a rich, thick cream—which will only make your skin look and feel greasier than it already is. Each climate-specific, biomimetic ingredient in Tropical Day Cream was chosen both for its effectiveness and its lightweight texture to make the cream feel weightless on your skin.
It’s Packed with CEBs.
That’s short for Climate Energized Beautifiers. Each Pour Moi Day Cream has its own set of these ingredients, which target environmental conditions unique to that particular climate. The Tropical Day Cream packs 9 non-oil based, advanced hydrators including coconut acid (see above), plus coco-caprylate/caprate, a gentle emollient derived from coconut oil and glycerin that replenishes lost water and protects against future moisture loss—as well as other important ingredients that protect and nourish skin in tropical conditions.
It Prevents Air Conditioning from Drying Out Your Skin.
Skin doesn’t like change, which is why it tends to freak out when you enter an air-conditioned home, gym, store, or office after walking around in hot, humid conditions all day. What’s more, air conditioning dries out the air, which in turn dries out your skin. Tropical Day Cream contains squalane, a moisturizing ingredient derived from plant sources like olives and sugarcane that helps skin calmly adjust to tropical temperature fluctuations. So whenever you walk into an air-conditioned room, it instantly helps skin find its moisture balance, preventing dryness and irritation.
It Releases Ingredients When (and Where) You Need Them Most.
As mentioned above, the active ingredients in the Tropical Day Cream (like vitamin A) are encapsulated, meaning they are coated in a tiny amount of plant extract or protein. This ensures the ingredients work effectively by keeping them safe (some ingredients, like antioxidants, are fragile and need protection against light and air). It also helps them penetrate the skin’s lipid barrier and controls when they are released. Once the ingredient reaches its destination, the coating dissolves.
The Best Face Moisturizer for Oily Skin Keeps You Looking Young.
Tropical Day Cream contains peptides and botanicals, which reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten skin to counteract dullness, and keep you looking fresh all summer long. Use daily in our three-step ritual system. Twice a day apply our Hydrating Balanceras your first step, to balance skin’s pH levels, and prep the skin for active ingredients. Next, choose your Serum. Black is for dry or mature skin; White restores and hydrates oily or combination complexions. In the morning apply the best moisturizer for oily skin - your Day Cream - as your third and final step; at night finish with our Night Cream.
