Winter care for oily skin

These below listed winter skin care tips for oily skin that will help you achieve the right glow.

1. Use of correct moisturizer:

You need to use a correct, oil-free moisturizer regularly, even in winters. There are many moisturizers made especially for this skin type, right from gel form to water-based. The current market products are enriched with vitamin E, which is the best option for oily skin. Ensure that you moisturize after every face washing routine, as this will keep the oils balanced.

2. Exfoliate your skin:

You can maintain a healthy skin tone by cleaning and exfoliating your skin regularly. Adopt a regular routine, use a good exfoliating gel that has minute granules enriched with vitamin E. By using it twice a week, you will find wonderful results.

3. Avoid Petroleum Jelly:

Avoid applying petroleum jelly on your face and lips. For chapped lips, use medicated or herbal lip-balms.

4. Tea Tree Oil:

As you know, most people bathe using hot water in winters. However, it is proven that using warm water with few drops of tea tree oil makes up for the loss of moisture, and helps keep the skin much softer and supple.

5.Stay Hydrated:

Try to consume at least eight to ten glasses of water daily. It helps you keep your skin hydrated and flushes out the toxins and bacteria from your skin’s pores.

6. Use oil free based makeup products:

While buying a foundation, ensure you choose a liquid or cream, which is oil-free and water-based. Regular makeup products contain natural oils and they are not good for your skin, instead go for products with matte-effect that stay longer.

7. Use moisture rich skin products:

Prefer shower gel to soaps, if you are persistent on using soap, then it should have moisturizing elements. Soap with glycerin and natural oils is a good option on the body, but for the face, go for an oil-free face wash.
