All of us are facing the same challenge during the summer. Hot weather makes you sweat and your makeup slides off. How do you get rid of greasy and shiny face? Here are some tips to keep your skin oil-free throughout the day. Let’s start to change your skincare routine!
(1) Wash Your Face Properly
Use a gentle cleansing gel to clean your face with lukewarm water twice a day. Stay away from harsh facial cleansers and don’t use hot water to wash your face. Too frequent face cleansing will strip the natural oils and moisture of your skin. This will result to dry skin that tends to produce more oil. which will make your face oily and shiny. The most important thing is to keep your skin hydrated. Remember to apply an oil-free moisturizer immediately after face cleansing.
(2) Protect Your Skin from Sun Damage
Hot weather makes you sweat. The sun will increase oil secretion of skin. Use the right sunscreen to fight against sun damage. Choose a sunscreen with mattifying and built-in SPF30++++ formula to stay away from the harmful UV rays. This is a good pick to provide enough skin protection and keep your face oil-free.
(3) Avoid Unhealthy Foods and Beverage
Foods like carrot, pumpkin, and broccoli are high in Vitamin A, which can lower oil secretion. Stay away from alcohol, fried, and spicy foods. They will dilate blood vessels and deteriorate your oily skin problems. Limit yourself! A healthy diet includes drinking lots of water that can keep your skin oil-free and breakout-free.
(4) Use a Blotting Paper
Blotting paper is the best pick to soak up the excess oils and avoid cakey makeup. It is handy and you can apply it to the oily areas like your forehead and nose to absorb excess oil by pressing it for a few seconds. It will not make your skin too dry and clog the pores.
