My skin generally behaves well but there are days , like the current monsoon season when the best of skin can start misbehaving (read oily shine , acne, blemishes, tanning etc. ).So it is important to take care of the skin according to the seasons too .While surfing the net for products for oily skin , I came across a very useful article and thought that I should share it with all you girls (and boys) too .
Here is what I learned about how to take care of my oily skin (source 1)
from Rewardme , a website by P&G ,which contains all exclusive information and tips on Beauty, Food, Fashion, Home and Health. Here you can find access to products, ideas, inspiration and advice that will fill your day with rewarding moments every day .
- Cleansing , Exfoliating and Toning – Gentle Cleansing everyday is essential .Oily skin needs a products with benzoylperoxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid or beta-hydroxy acid .But you could be senitive to some of them , so always conduct a patch test before using on the face .
Exfoliate the skin every 2-3 days and follow it up with an alcohol free gentle toner
2. Moisturization and Sun Protection – Oily skin too needs moisturization a light one for the day and a heavier duty one for the night .Moisturiser smooths and hydrates the skin by locking in moisture and providing a barrier between the skin and the environment.
Top up the protection by using an oil free sunscreen with SPF 30 at least and reapply after every two hours when out in the sun.
3. On the Spot Management of blemishes/acne – If one follws the above routine sincerely , the chances of getting blemishes or acne are very few .But if you do get one, then a natural remedy like tea tree oil or a product that contains benzoyl peroxide, alpha hydroxy acid or salicylic acid is best to zap the intruder on the spot .
4. Make Up for oily skin – An oil free primer follwed up with a matte foundation or BB cream with a light dusting of loose powder is the way to go . Follow it up with a gloss or balm on the lips or a juicy lip stain to give a sun kissed summery look to your face .
Keep blotting tissues handy in case of oiliness after a few hours .
5.Devise New Strategies according to the weather – Yes , the requirements of our skin change as per the climate . Winters may call for heavier moisturization and summers may call for more heavy duty sun protection . So make minor adjustments to the products that you use according to the weather . Ditto for make up .A matte foundation will be great for warm weather but will make the skin dry in winters , when you need a dewy one .
With the above tips , I have been enjoying a healthier and well behaved skin even in this sultry and sweaty weather .Now I know who to turn to for expert tips on health and beauty .Hope you too can benefit from these .
