Now that we are in the middle of the summer, everyone with oily or combination skin must be looking for ways to calm down their sticky skin, making it seem less shiny.
Although, oily and combination skin needs a lot of extra care and attention, but to look at the brighter side, it ages much slower than normal and dry skin and keeps away fine lines and wrinkles for a longer period of time. Let’s have a look at ways that you can do to control that oily/combination skin.
Use lukewarm water: Try to use lukewarm water for cleansing oily skin, as it dissolves oil more effectively than cold water. It helps in washing away the dirt and impurities that have deposited on the skin and unclog the skin pores.
Cleanse regularly: One of the best tips for women with oily skin to get clear skin naturally is regular cleansing. Cleansing your face twice a day is enough for keeping it clean. Don’t overdo the cleaning as it can over dry skin and trigger oil production
Don’t overdo the Exfoliation: Don’t scrub too much. Exfoliating the skin 2-3 times a week is more than enough for removing dead cells and blackheads.
Natural Face mask: One of the most important aspects of oily skin care is the periodic application of natural face masks that helps in soaking excess oil from the skin and removes harmful bacteria from the skin.
Less makeup: Substitute the heavy foundation for tinted moisturizing creams containing silicone that does not dissolve into the pores and clogs them. It also creates a barrier between skin and heat.
Avoid touching the face: Control the temptation of touching your face with your hands, as it transfers additional oil, dirt and germs to your face making it prone to outbreaks.
Watch what you eat: Try to avoid those oily and fried foods as it produces more oil causing pimples acne. So no matter how tempting that fried food looks, try to eat less of that.
Follow these easy steps to control that oily skin during summer to have matte and glowy skin.
