skincare tips for oily skin

Be picky about the kind of cleanser you choose and incorporate in your oily skincare routine—it should be effective yet gentle enough to get rid of the greasiness when used twice a day. For oily skin, a gel based cleanser like the Pond’s White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel Face Wash is better than a creamy facewash.

One of the reasons why you have oily skin is because of dehydration. When your body doesn’t get enough of water, skin can turn greasy. Incorporate an oil-free, water-based moisturiser such as the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Crème into your skincare routine. It will nourish your skin and give it a healthy glow!
