Summer comes with a lot of perks, but at the same time, it brings a whole new set of challenges to deal with. Among the most common summer complaints when it comes to skin care there is excessive oiliness which tends to emerge at the worst possible times. Being prepared and minimizing damage are the best ways to deal with this problem. Here are a few ways to maintain the illusion of perfect skin without relying solely on blotting papers:

Try Acne-Fighting Cleansers

Even if the days when you were battling acne are officially gone, if you’re having regular shine issues, using a salicylic acid based cleanser can be a good idea. Don’t go beyond 2% concentration though, as it might have opposite effects.

Don’t Skimp On Facials 

Even if you don’t necessarily feel like spending big bucks on spa visits, keeping the ritual of applying suitable homemade facials on a weekly basis should be an important concern. Find our some of the DIY home-made mask for different skin types here.

Eat Right

It’s not only the products you put on your skin that influence the degree of oiliness you experience. Spicy foods along with alcoholic beverages such as cocktails dilate blood vessels causing your skin to sweat more. Limit your consumption of these and instead fill up on a variety of fruits and veggies with high water content and save a few calories in the process.

Try Mineral Based Sunblock 

It might seem unintuitive but it appears that sunblock can actually help control shine and excessive oil production. Micronized Zinc or Titanium Dioxide are the two helpful ingredients for this purpose. Denatured alcohol is another helpful ingredient which can keep the skin oil free. Of course, be sure not to overdo makeup in the summer for best results.
