Everyone can benefit from using a moisturizer. Whether you have dry, oily, sensitive, or normal skin, using a moisturizer (that is suited for your skin type!) can make a world of difference to your skin. Not only does it help with dryness and signs of aging, but it can help with acne and skin conditions such as eczema. A good moisturizer can help balance out your skin. Not only that, moisturizers can help protect the natural skin barrier.
If you suffer from fungal acne, the one skincare product that is the hardest to find is a fungal acne safe moisturizer. To help you out, here are the best fungal acne safe moisturizers currently on the market. Whether you have oily, dry, or sensitive skin or looking for a budget-friendly option, we have you covered!

1. Best Overall: S.O.S Emergency Cream Intensive Moisturizer
2. Best for Sensitive Skin: Tolerance Extreme Emulsion
by Eau Thermale Avene
If you have sensitive skin and you find that most moisturizers break you out, look no further. Avene is a French brand that is predominantly known for skincare products catering to sensitive skin. Their Tolerance Extreme Emulsion, formulated with only six essential ingredients, is one of the best fungal acne safe moisturizers out there. I like to use this moisturizer predominantly in the hotter months because of its lightweight formulation. It is perfect as a daytime moisturizer and as a base moisturizer under foundation.
3. Best for Dry Skin: Hydration Oasis Nourishing Gel Cream
Hydration Oasis Nourishing Gel Cream is a rich gel-cream moisturizer that is guaranteed to provide instant, intense moisture to the skin. For those looking for an option similar to Elemis’ S.O.S Emergency Cream Intensive Moisturizer, this is a great alternative. Not only is it formulated with clean ingredients, but it has the benefit of containing hyaluronic acid, which helps to hydrate the skin and smooths the appearance of fine lines.
