7 beauty tips that every girl with oily skin needs to know this monsoon

While the monsoon brings respite from hot summer days, its sticky humidity never fails to make its presence felt. Especially if you’re a girl with oily skin, this can be a very tiring time. Since you can’t avoid going outdoors all season long, these skin care tips will banish oiliness and keep your skin glowing.

1) Never fail to exfoliate

Twice a week, scrub your skin gently to get rid of build-up and debris which leads to oiliness and acne. Your skin won’t be able to thank you enough!

2)  Keep oil blotting sheets handy

They are perfect to absorb greasiness in a jiffy even over a full face of makeup. Perfect for a business meeting or music festival!

3) Opt for lighter formulas

If your oily skin is getting up and bothered by heavy creams, turn to serum instead. Its lightweight formula will absorb swiftly so that your skin stays moisturised and grease-free.

4) Soothe your skin

If the monsoon is making your skin act up, opt for calming ingredients in your skin care products like aloe vera, witch hazel, lavender, rose and green tea. They are highly beneficial to soothe and treat irritated, inflamed skin.

5) Opt for the right makeup

Choose lightweight products like BB and CC creams rather than foundation. Blend colour stains and creams over your eyes and cheeks for a long-lasting finish. Seal in your makeup with a translucent setting powder.

6)  Mix together a natural face mask

Combine 1 teaspoon each of corn flour, honey, milk and a pinch of turmeric to make a wonderful face mask. It will remove dullness, soothe redness and regulate sebum production for healthy skin.

7) Don’t skip the toner

Make sure you tone your skin before moisturising and after cleansing. It will seal the pores and reduce oiliness so that your skin stays radiant and grease-free.
