The moisturizer behind Kourtney Kardashian's man.
Is Scott Disick leaving reality TV to become a skincare crusader? Probably not. But the main squeeze of Kourtney Kardashian and father of their two children recently became an unlikely hero in the beauty world.
In the season finale of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," Disick made a random comment about skin care that set social media ablaze. The buzz came about when he and Kardashian started making overnight hospital plans for the impending birth of their daughter Penelope, who arrived last July.
Kardashian: "What are you going to pack?"
Disick: "A tuxedo...toiletries and probably an oil-free moisturizer."
The exchange created such a stir on Twitter and Tumblr that beautynistas urged Disick to run for president. However, before anyone starts actively campaigning, we think it's the perfect opportunity to underscore the benefits of oil-free skincare products. These water-based formulations help regulate oil production and soothe inflammation. They also keep the skin from drying out, prevent pores from clogging, and minimize breakouts for people with oily or acne-prone concerns.
We don't know Disick's skin type or which oil-free products he uses, but we've compiled the ones that deliver the best results. They include top moisturizers, SPFs, serums, mattifiers and peels. Keep in mind, if you suffer from acne, you may need to experiment with different oil-free products before you find the ones that suit your skin the most.
