If you have oily skin, it is going to need just as much care during winter, as dry skin needs. In fact, oily skin needs more care than dry skin as it is more likely to break out during winter.
That is because the chilly winds steal your skin of its natural surface lipids, which act as barriers to hold in moisture and keeps the dirt and other environmental toxins out thus leading to more breakouts.
Read on as we bring you the most effective skin care solutions to prevent breakouts for oily skin care...
#1 CTM Daily
This is unavoidable, you guys. Cleansing, toning and finally moisturising your face is a must irrespective of what weather and what your skin type is. This not only controls your oil secretion level but also prevents your pores from clogging and lets your skin breathe. Make sure you CTM daily, without a skip.
#2 Use mattifying products
Switch to matte finish products during winter as they control the sebum and oil secretion from your skin, making your skin look less oily. You must use a mattifying moisturiser, toner and even setting spray for best results. But make sure you use a good moisturiser so the moisture stays locked in your skin and the matte products don’t dry your skin.
#3 Watch what you eat
You simply cannot binge on oily, unhealthy food if you’re prone to breaking out. Oily food is a strict no from our side for everyone who has oily skin. You can cheat once in a while, but don’t do it often.
#4 Don’t touch your face constantly
Touching your oily face constantly will not only transfer more bacteria to your face but also lead to severe acne and breakouts. No matter how intimidating it may be, avoid touching your face for healthy, acne-free skin.
