6 hacks for oily skin in the monsoon
If we’re being honest, caring for oily skin is almost a full time job. Since the skin type is fussy and in constant need of attention, giving it the right skin care can be a task. Even in the monsoons, the sticky heat and constant humidity can make this even harder. But that’s when we step in to save the day. We’ve got a handy list of the top beauty tips so that you’ll never need to worry about oily skin in the rains.

Opt for the right routine

Cover lightly

When it comes to oily skin, choosing the right skin care routine is of highest importance. Once you’ve cleansed your face, don’t forget to tone with the Lakmé Absolute Pore Fix Toner. Its alcohol-free formula is infused with witch hazel which will tighten pores and prevent excess sebum. To moisturise, turn to a water based product that nourishes your skin without weighing it down. We recommend the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème. Made with mineral laden glacial water, it hydrates the face gently to leave it moisturised and refreshed.

Blot away your troubles

If you find your face getting greasy by mid-afternoon, there’s one skin care hack that can come to your aid and that’s blotting sheets. Whether you are wearing makeup or not, simply dabbing a sheet over your cheeks, forehead and chin can suck up oiliness so that you can cheat your way to matte skin is less than a minute.


Don’t forget your body

Cover lightly

It isn’t only your face that can get oily, it’s the rest of your body too. This can happen when your skin is overly dry and your body produces excess sebum to nourish it. In order to remedy it, make sure to moisturise even in the monsoons with Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Body Lotion. Its Stratys 3 Multi-Layer Moisture goes deep into the skin to hydrate it while its pure aloe extracts soothe the body greatly.

Pack a bag

A tea bag, that is! Post sipping away your cup of green or black tea; don’t toss the brewed tea bag. Instead, place the tea bag on the oiliest areas of your face. Let it sit for 20 minutes and then move to the next area. As tea contains tannins which shrink pores and control sebum production, it’s a natural oily skin hack to add to your regime.


Cover lightly

Cover lightly

If your oily skin needs a light cover that won’t weight it down and make it even more sticky, then choose the Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Fairness Cream. Its GenWhite Cover Formula instantly gives a natural layer of coverage and moisturises the face. It also works from within to lighten dark spots and brighten the skin for a radiant look. Perfect to step out with for a natural beauty look!

Rely on a remedy

There’s nothing like a good old home remedy—for oily skin too! To make a face mask that banishes greasiness naturally, gather 3 tablespoons of orange peel powder and 3 teaspoons of rose water. Combine these ingredients together and apply the paste over your face and neck. Leave it for 30 minutes and wash it off with warm water. With the absorbency of the orange peel and rose water’s calming properties, you’ll find your skin refreshed and grease-free.
