5 ways to keep your face oil-free this summer
While many adore the summer for its warmth and sunshine, others may not agree. You probably fall in the latter category, if you have oily skin. And rightly so; excessive sweat and greasy skin isn’t exactly appealing. However, this summer, even when the sun is at its brightest, that’s something you won’t have to face. That’s because we’ve got some skin care tips that will ensure your face stays oil-free all through the season.

Wash well

Make it prime time

Make sure the very start of your skin care routine is done right with the Pond’s Pure White Anti-Pollution + Purity Face Wash. Pollution and dusty summer days can clog the pores and cause oily skin. Fortunately, this face wash contains Activated Carbon which removes deep-set sebum, impurities and dirt from within. It’s all you need to make sure your pores are unclogged and your skin is clear and oil-free.

Mist it up

If you ever thought that a face mist was an unnecessary step in a skin care routine, summer might change your mind. If this season tends to leave your face feeling dreary and greasy, opt for a spritz of facial mist every time your skin feels tired. It will refresh and hydrate your face making oily skin a thing of the past.

To make your own facial mist, combine the juice of 1 small cucumber with 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel, 2 drops of tea tree oil and 3 tablespoons of distilled water. Combine this mixture, place it in spray bottle and store it in the fridge. Shake it well and start spritzing!


Trust moisturiser

Make it prime time

Contrary to popular belief, oily skin does need moisturiser. In fact, when it doesn’t receive its fair share of hydration, it produces sebum to moisturise skin, which can also make it overly oily. Therefore trust a lightweight, water-based moisturiser like the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème. Made with Mineral laden glacial water, it is the sip of nourishment your skin needs, without weighing down on it. Soon enough, you’ll have moisturised, supple skin.


Make it prime time

Regardless of whether your makeup look is statement-making or barely there, primer is the one way to ensure that excess oil secretion doesn’t wreck your party! Apply the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer all over your face, especially in areas which get oily quickly like your cheeks and T-zone. Not only will primer keep your makeup intact for hours to come, it will also prevent oil from affecting it and give your skin a matte finish.

Blot back

Whether you’re a big tote kind of girl or a mini bag lady, if there’s only one item you carry in your bag, let it be a packet of blotting sheets. An oil spill breaking out on your face is inevitable at some point in this season so stay safe and blot it away from your T-zone and cheeks with a handy sheet or two.
