    Try and use Fash by Curatio. Its easily available on all medical stores. Since you have oily skin, I reckon that gel based one will be much suitable for you. Hope this solves your oily plus acne breakout problem that you have been facing for long.

    Thanks

  6. Hi madhu,

    For winters, you can use Lakme peach milk mosituriser.

  7. ILove Nature Face Wash Neem is what m using these days ..its as neem-rich facewash and helps prevent blemishes and balances T-zone. great packaging and its mild yet captivating fragrance is an added bonus

  8. What you say about o3 oxygen facewash?
    Or any other or may be any chemical free facewashes?
    For both oily and normal skin type

  9. Hi Himashu,

    I have not used their products yet so, can’t say much on that.

    Some amount of chemicals will be there in the face washes as they need to lather up and have to have good shelf life. so, that way, I like khadi face washes or even medimix soap is good for oily skin with several herbs in it.

  16. Hi there, You can try non oily products for the entire face and then where the skin is dry like on the cheeks you can apply some extra moisturizer. This way the oily skin will not be extremely greasy and the dry skin will also be hydrated.
    Apply sunscreen which is gel based when you go out in sun. Use face wash like neem face wash from Himalaya they are good for oily skin and are not drying for the dry skin.

  17. Try Himalaya Neem face wash sagar. Also scrub the face 2 times in a week to fade the marks,
