Pick the right cleanser
Oily skin is prone to acne and breakouts, therefore it is essential to look for a formula that combats acne. We believe prevention is better than cure, hence trust the Ponds Pimple Clear Face Wash. It kills pimple-causing germs right at its roots and removes dirt and oil with every wash.
Follow it up with a toner
If you’ve underestimated the importance of a toner give it a try and notice the difference in your T-zone, your skin will thank you for introducing it to a toner. The Lakme Absolute Pore Fix Toner is an alcohol-free formula that tightens pores and prevents excess sebum production.
Opt for an oil free moisturiser
Not every moisturiser will suit your skin type but that does not mean you will skin moisturiser altogether. Instead look for a water or gel-based formula such as the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel, it absorbs easily to soothe and hydrate your skin from within.
Carry blotting papers
Make blotting papers your best friend and carry them in your bag at all times. It is the easiest and quickest way to get rid of oil on your T-zone. Pat it on your forehead, nose and chin to lift away all the excess oil.
If you have combination skin, multi-masking is for you! Use a clay mask on your T-zone as it absorbs all the oil and helps mattify the skin. Apply a hydrating mask on your cheeks if you cheeks tend to get dry easily.
