Oily skin and summer are two opposite ends of a pole that just do not seem to work well together. Those with sticky oily skin will understand the pain and frustration that comes with the grease making dirt stick to your skin and ruining your makeup. Battling the summer heat is painful enough as it is, but for those with oily skin, it’s particularly harder.The excess grease and oil, ruining your perfect summer look should no longer be an issue because we have some tips that could work like a charm for your skin type:
1) Say no to frequent face wash:
As a result of the boiling temperature you may feel tempted to douse your face with cool water every few minutes or so. However, our skin produces natural oils as it is and washing it frequently stimulates our oil glands to produce more oil than usual. For people with oily skin, it only makes a bad situation worse. The best way to keep your skin clog and dirt free this season is by gently cleansing it twice a day. Be sure to use cleansing products that suit your skin.
2) Tone down your makeup routine:
If you’re somebody who uses a lot of makeup products and feels bare without it, this is going to be hard for you to hear but during the summer, you can save yourself a lot of hassle by cutting down on the makeup products you use. Avoid using foundations as much as possible because they are too heavy on your skin and may clog your pores. Under the summer heat, it is likely that they will also get runny. Instead follow a minimalistic makeup routine and use lightweight makeup such as tinted moisturizers and powders to avoid such disasters.
Follow these tips and your skin will surely look much better by the end of the season. Summer is challenging enough without oily skin troubles, but with these tips you will certainly be able to cut some problems off your list.
