Face gel is becoming increasingly popular in skin care regimens. It is designed for lighter hydration needs.

One main element that differentiates gels from other moisturizing creams is that they are oil free.

Face gels are packed with humectants, a moisturizing agent. They are quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving it moisturized and giving a non-greasy and matte look.

Humectants attract moisture to soften the skin while also preserving the overall properties of the product.

Here are the top four benefits of using face gel over face cream

1. Works on all skin types

Face gels contain fewer emollients and oils than regular face moisturizing products that are cream-based or oil-based, and thus work for every skin type.

However, experts suggest that face gels are a better option for those with oily and combination skin, since they are typically water based. For those with dry skin, face gels hydrate and reduce roughness.

Overall, they are the best hydration boosters!

2. Season friendly

Another important benefit of using face gels is that we can use them in any season.

In a tropical country like India, humidity is considerably high during summer and monsoon. Therefore, face gels are ideal

3. Easy to absorb and gives an instant matte look

Face gels help with skin hydration needs, leaving little residue.

They are easily absorbed into the skin, giving an instant matte look. Unlike cream-based or oil-based creams, they do not leave any greasy or oily residue.

4. Soothing and calming effect on the skin

Face gels provide a soothing and calming effect on the skin due to the presence of skin-conditioning agents. They help the face look refreshed.


Face gels are much-needed products that should be included in our skin care regimens, especially by those looking for an alternative to boost skin hydration.

Hydrating doesn’t always mean applying thick creams on the face. If you are looking to switch to face gels, do it today!

There are a variety of face gels available; it is always better to opt for face gels that are scientifically developed and enriched with well-known herbal ingredients.  

Give your skin a hydrated and instant matte look!
