Hot and humid weather may be able to save your skin from the winter dryness and itchiness, you will be surprised to know that this climate tends to get the best of your skin. The moist weather leaves your skin oily and greasy resulting in acnes and blemishes. But, with the right treatment you can save your skin from all the problems and keep it soft and supple. Check out our tips to maintain healthy skin when it is hot and humid outside.
Keep your Face Clean
When the humidity levels are high, your face tends to get greasy. So, to keep away that oily look, you need to cleanse your skin with an oil free face wash at least twice a day. You must also use a cleanser after you get up in the morning and before you go off to sleep. Do not at any cost use an oil based make up remover.
Use Powdered Based Products
When it is humid outside, you need to ensure that you need matte products so that they soak the excess oil from your skin. For instance, ensure to use a face powder before applying anything on your skin. This will prevent from creating that excess shine from your face.
Go for Regular Facials
Another important thing to be done during this hot and humid weather is to go for a facial treatment every once in a while. Make sure you go for an oil free formula. You can also go for a mask which is clay based so that all the oil on your skin is absorbed.
Moisturize only if needed
If you tend to have an oily skin i.e. your skin ends up overproducing oils when the humidity levels increase, you could skip on the moisturizer. You could just use a sunscreen with a 15 SPF. Make sure you use a waterproof sunscreen so that it holds up your sweat.
Use Less Make Up
When you wear a lot of make up during hot and humid weather conditions, they tend to get in your pores and eventually clog them. Use a mineral based powdered foundation instead of the cream based ones. Also, reduce your usage of night creams, they tend to make your skin more oily.
