Bioderma Sébium H2O – Even if you don’t wear makeup, it’s important to keep your skin clean, especially before and after gym class.

This is especially important if you use any acne treatments, which can dry the skin out. This lightweight, daily moisturizer is perfect for oily skin and hot, humid weather. It reduces oil while gently exfoliating the skin, clearing out breakouts and diminishing any acne scarring. It also contains SPF 35 to keep your skin protected from the sun.
