Summer can be a challenging time for skin care, especially for oily or acne-prone skin. So, today I’m here with summer skin care tips for oily skin. Anyone with oily skin knows that the heat, humidity and sweat on top of makeup can be extremely uncomfortable and make you feel like an oily mess! But not to worry, there are plenty of tweaks and summer skin care tips for oily skin that can help calm your skin so you don’t have to have a blotting sheet permanently applied to your forehead.
1. Change Cleansers
One of the lesser known summer skin care tips for oily skin is that you might need an acne-fighting cleanser even if you aren’t prone to breakouts. The rationale behind this is that acne cleansers contain salicylic acid, which helps get rid of excess oil and sebum so you’re less likely to be oily throughout the day. Salicylic acid is also known for helping keep pores clean and gently removing excess skin. If you’d rather DIY it, try making a mask of mashed strawberries (a natural source of salicylic acid) with a squeeze of lemon to brighten and reduce oil.
