One of the biggest concerns of people is managing oily skin in the scorching summer months. Heat makes the skin sweaty, which in turn makes it sticky and oily. It can be a nightmare for people who are already susceptible to oily skin, because it can become a breeding ground for dust and germs. But, there is a solution; in fact many. If you are looking to manage your oily skin, keep these simple tips in mind. Read on.

A light moisturizer

While you cannot absolutely do away with a moisturizer, you can and should switch to a lighter one. It will keep your skin healthy, while making sure you get your daily dose of moisture. Heavier moisturizer, which you would ideally use in winters, will not suit your summer skin. Select one that suits your skin type. This is the basic step.

Cleaning your face

It is important for you to keep your skin clean all the time, so make it a habit to wash your face with an oil-cleansing face wash, whenever you do.
