Winter is a very cozy season in our hot and humid climate. Therefore, we do not pay enough attention to protect our skin during winter, if we have oily skin. We’re under the illusion that oily skin doesn’t need any protection from harsh, cold weather, but that’s wrong. Just like normal and dry skin, it also needs cleansing, toning, exfoliation, and hydration to stay healthy. In winter, oily skin becomes dry and rough, leading to the formation of black and white dots. Sometimes acne also becomes a vital problem in winter.
In winter, our sebaceous glands do not stop secreting excess fat. Therefore, the ideal is that we do not stop following our daily skin care routine but readjust it to continue looking bright and healthy. We need to follow some essential winter skin care tips for oily skin.
THE FIVE BASIC TIPS FOR OILY SKIN CARE
CLEAN THE FACE
We must wash our face twice with warm water using a cleansing gel or bath gel. Eliminates excess oil and dirt and leaves our face clean. After that, we need to wipe it gently with a clean towel.
We should use a water-based moisturizer or face lotion that is specially designed for oily skin after washing our face regularly. Helps maintain oil balance without that greasy feeling. We must also use a moisturizer or night cream and leave it on all night as it acts as a protector against dryness.
ELIMINATE DEAD CELLS
We must do a facial exfoliation at least twice a week to have clearer skin. It also helps us get rid of blackheads and whiteheads. But we must choose a gel-based exfoliator with tiny granules and enriched with vitamin E.
USE TEA TREE OIL
We usually use hot water for shower during winter, which causes lack of moisture on our skin. To make up for it, we should add a few drops of tea tree oil in hot water regularly to maintain moisture balance and also soothe our skin. We can also use body soap or shower gel enriched with tea tree oil for better results.
DRINK A LOT OF WATER AND EAT FRUITS
Glowing, healthy skin doesn’t just come from external care, it also needs internal protection that comes from a disciplined lifestyle. We should drink a lot of water to hydrate our skin during the winter and eat a lot of juicy fruits. The vitamins and antioxidants in fruits nourish our skin from the inside out.
The above winter skin care tips for oily skin should be followed to keep glowing when the mercury drops. We must follow them to have breathable, healthy looking and glowing skin as healthy skin is like a blessing that not only enhances our beauty but also helps us feel confident from within.
