It’s tough to tackle oily skin. If constantly having to wipe your face with blotting sheets wasn’t enough, the resultant acne and blackheads can easily keep you second guessing about what your skin care regime is missing. While it’s not easy to handle oily skin, it sure isn’t impossible. Ask yourself the following questions if you truly want to know about skin care for oily skin...

Is your cleanser right for your skin type?

Cleansing is one of the most important parts of a skin care regime. When you’re fighting oily skin, relying on a gel-based face wash is the ideal thing to do because oily skin is often irritated and a gel face wash soothes the skin. We suggest you get your hands on the Pond’s White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel Face Wash. This cleanser is infused with Pearl Essence and is known to lend your skin a glow. Its oxygenated gel formula refreshes and cleanses the skin while removing dirt and excess oil from deep inside—an absolute necessity for oily skin.

Are you skipping moisturiser?

Many of us with oily skin often assume that applying a moisturiser will make the skin oilier but this is actually causing more harm to your skin. When you don’t lend your oily skin adequate hydration by way of a mild moisturiser, your skin overcompensates by increasing the level of oil through your sebaceous glands. This is why you need to opt for the right moisturiser for your skin type. We think you should go for the Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser. Filled with a blend of wholesome peaches, this magic product nourishes the skin deeply without making it look oily. Since it’s also light and non-greasy, you’ll feel like you’ve worn nothing on your skin and yet,you’ll have met all your hydration requirements.

Does your lotion have the right ingredients?

When you have oily skin, you could suffer from acne. But then again, you shun a lotion for your body thinking that your skin will feel greasy all day long. The solution lies in opting for a lotion that disappears into your skin, nourishes it with the right ingredients and feels absolutely light. This is why you must rely on the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Body Lotion. Aloe vera contains two hormones—Auxin and Gibberellins. These have anti-inflammatory properties that have the power to reduce bacteria in the skin thereby helping combat acne. This product contains the goodness of pure aloe, stratys-3 multi-layer moisture that deeply moisturises your skin but is absolutely feathery light on the skin.
