Summer Beauty Tips for Oily Skin: How to take care of oily skin
Whenever summer season approaches we think that now the oily skin will get oilier and skin complexion will become dull. Oily skin looks shiny and greasy due to the sebaceous glands which produce more than the required quantity of sebum. So this sebum can clog the pores with dead skin and also make the skin greasy. This oil production activity gets even more in summers. In summers, due to humidity and high temperature more oils are produced. So, when this oil is not removed, then this oil along with the dead skin buildup will become a good place for the bacteria to breed. Thus we can face skin problems like whiteheads, pimples, blackheads, small boils etc.
So, what can we do to take care of the oily skin in summers. Well, we dread not just the oiliness but skin darkening too in summers. In this post, we will share natural ways and some beauty tips to tackle the oily skin. And also how can we keep the skin oil free in summers as long as possible.
Oily skin care: Summer beauty tips for oily skin
1. Face Cleansing
Your skin care starts with skin cleansing right? So, in summers try facial cleanser that has salicylic acid, tea tree oil etc. these ingredients are good for controlling oils. These are also anti bacterial so will kill the pimple/acne causing bacteria thereby will minimize the eruption of pimples.
2. Exfoliation/ Scrubbing
You know dead skin and sebum on your face can give bacteria a good place to live and breed. Therefore, we have to make sure that the skin is clean and pores are not blocked. So, for this scrubbing or exfoliation is the excellent way to scrub off the dead skin layer on your face. Scrub the face 2-3 times in a week and you will be good to go. Do you know that the skin renews itself so, with regular exfoliation your skin will stay younger looking and also the blemishes will be faded?

3. Makeup for Oily skin in summers
Girls, find it really annoying when the oil starts to show up on the nose chin etc. And for that we will use compact powder. But do you know that this will leave the face look cakey at the end of the day and also infuse the powder puff with the oils. Eww. So, it’s better to use the blotting sheets which will absorb the excess oils that have come on the skin in summers. You should also use oil free makeup products like foundation etc. Try water based foundation which are good for oily skinned beauties.
4. Some beauty tips for oily skin
You can use some ice pack before applying makeup. Like take an ice cube and run all over the face. This tightens the face and also tones the skin pores. This will really help the makeup last long.
Make a paste of baking soda and water. use this to gentle scrub off the facial skin so that skin pores are cleared. this will make the skin beautiful and clear.
Face packs are also quite beneficial in making the skin oil free. Multani mitti, clay packs or mud packs are good for absorbing the excessive oils and sebum from the face. You can see some good summer face packs for oily skin in this posts here.
This is extremely crucial that you use the sunscreen. Sunscreens will help your skin to stay free from sun damage and also from getting darker in the sun. If you are using the fairness remedies or any other treatments, then if you’re not using sunscreen while going in the sun light then your skin will get darker again. there will not be any use of doping the natural treatments for making the skin fair looking.
Taking care of oily skin is not that difficult girls, but we should take some precaution like with cleansing, exfoliation, makeup etc and we can get beautiful skin.
