Oily skin you need to reapply a little lotion
Whether it is summer, monsoon, or winter, your skin is shiny all throughout the year. You have probably tried a lot of different skincare products but can’t seem to tackle your oily skin woes. Don’t worry, we got your back. Here is how you can prevent your skin from looking like a shiny disco ball every day.
The sun and the heat can be fatal for tanning the skin. In the summer, UV rays augment the production of sebum, which secretes more easily through dilated pores as a result of climbing temperatures. Sebum acts in ‘self-defense' mode when the skin is losing water, producing more oil to retain it. The result is that your face shines and your skin feels greasy to the touch. Another factor is perspiration caused by heat, stress, or exertion. Perspiration mixes with sebum and increases the shine. Your skin will look greasier than ever, but rest assured, you are not alone. A shiny T-zone is a concern for one in every two women.
So what's the solution?
It's a common mistake to think that an application of cream will make the skin oilier. In fact, hydrating the skin is essential, even when it is oily, otherwise it will dry out and secrete more sebum to maintain balance. However, choose a hydrating product with a light texture, such as a lotion or an emulsifying mattifier, which diminishes shine. For example, try the White Perfect Clinical New Skin Essence Lotion by L’Oréal Paris. The lightweight texture of this Skin Essence Lotion is quickly absorbed into the skin and it smoothes your skin texture and boosts radiance. The last thing you need when you have oily skin is a product that feels heavy or greasy, and the White Perfect Skin Essence is a powerful and concentrated essence water that feels comfortable on your skin.
Some products refine skin texture to make it feel lighter. An emulsion consisting of an aqueous phase which hydrates and an oily phase (essential oils and vegetable oils) which protects is ideal for oily skin. Choose a formulation that contains more water than oily substances so that it absorbs quickly without leaving an oily film. Also try cleansing with a clay mask once or twice a week as this will unclog pores and better oxygenate the skin.
