Oily skin can be hard to deal with—too much moisturising can lead to increased oiliness causing breakouts and acne and too little moisturising can leave your skin with dry patches. We know how difficult it can be, that’s why we put together a quick guide to caring for oily skin

How does oily skin occur?

Oily skin produces extra sebum but getting rid of all the sebum is not the solution since our skin needs a certain amount of sebum to remain healthy. Hence, while many people may think that oily skin needs no moisturising, they couldn’t be more wrong.

Choose the right face cream

The secret lies in choosing the right face cream. We recommend the Ponds Silk Cream Moisturiser that is enriched with a 24-hour moisture lock formula that nourishes your skin without leaving a trace of greasiness. In addition to preventing dryness, it also retains moisture.

Invest in a great lotion for the day time

Summer or winter, never forget to moisturise your face thoroughly. If you’re looking for a day time moisturiser that’s great for your visage, we love the Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser. Its Nutritiv Moisture technology ensures that the peach-infused lotion goes into each derma layer of the skin to revive it instantly.

Choose a water based hydrating agent

You can't battle oiliness with oiliness, hence you need to call on a water-based hydrator to do the trick. Our all time favourite is the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème that has potent mineral laden glacial water which gives your skin all the nourishment it is in need of and leaves it with a natural glow.
