With the cool air of Spring fading away and hotter days approaching, it’s time to care about your skin and its requirements. While we may love Summer, we may not like what it actually does to our skin. With various environmental changes including soaring temperatures and humidity levels affecting us, the sebaceous glands in our skin produce more sebum such that skin looks and feels more oily with a chance of breakouts. Here’s precisely a guide on how to achieve shine-free, matte skin this summer, using our finest and expert-approved summer skin care tips for oily skin.
Cleanse right: While it is important to cleanse thoroughly, it is important to not increase the frequency of washing your face in summer. Excessive cleansing leads to an increase in oil production by the sebaceous glands and an overall increase in oiliness of the face. It’s also important that you avoid harsh cleansers with Sulphates as these tend to dry out the skin completely, and can lead to more breakouts and oiliness.
Forest Essentials face cleansers for oily skin include various Lightening & Brightening Ubtans, which can be blended with Buttermilk as a cooling mixer for Summer, to deeply cleanse and exfoliate skin.
Alternatively, you could try the Delicate Facial Cleanser Kashmiri Neem & Saffron, a sulphate-free cleanser that does not strip the skin of its natural moisture, and leaves skin with a soft glow.
