Dear Siva Selvi, Summertime is full of fun outdoor activities. For oily folks, spending time outdoors is less fun. When the body heats up, oil producers kick into overdrive. Sweat mixes with oils and leaves you feel miserable. Fight the summer slide with easy summer skin care tips for oily skin. These tips will help you feel less oily and look your best. Switch Cleansers
Switch your cleanser for summer. Skin care for oily skin should begin with a gel cleanser rather than a cream based cleanser. Gel cleansers remove bad oils and grime without leaving a greasy residue on your face. Choose a gel that contains exfoliating beads. Exfoliation will remove skin cell build up on your face. Excess skin cells make oily skin even more uncomfortable.

Go Oil Free
Use oil free everything in summer months. Swap out your face and body moisturizer for an oil-free brand. In the heat, your body does not need any excess oils. For a little extra protection use a moisturizer that contains an SPF. Shop around for an oil-free tanning lotion too.
With the right makeup, you can reduce the amount of oil on your skin. Use an oil mattifier on your skin before applying makeup. Mattifiers provide a barrier of oil protection between your face and your makeup. This helps keep makeup in place even when you get hot. Select the right makeup too. Mineral powder foundations will not cake up on your skin. Try using a light dusting even when just heading out for a little sunbathing. Mineral powder is light and barely noticeable to the naked eye.
Go waterproof too. Summer heat causes eye makeup to melt and shift if you have oily skin. Wear waterproof mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadows. Not only will you look great, even after a swim, but also everything will remain in place. Oils can shift makeup but waterproof brands move less.
Oil Blotters
Buy a pack of oil blotters and tuck them in your purse or vehicle. These mini pieces of paper absorb oil when you lay them flush against your skin. Absorb oily patches that appear with oil blotters then toss the blotters away. Unlike tissues, blotters do not leave paper residues behind. They are small enough to stash in your pocket and easy enough to use anywhere.
Oily skin needn't sweat through summer. Use these easy summer skin care tips for great looking summer skin.

[h=3]Deep cleansing facial mask[/h] Deep cleaning your face will remove stubborn dirt and dead skin cells that make your skin appear dull. Choose a deep cleansing facial mask that works well with your skin type. A clay mask works well for oily skin because it removes excess oil and deep-cleans pores. For dry skin, choose a moisturizing mask that will rejuvenate the skin and plump up pores. Use an exfoliating mask for dull skin that you wish to brighten, and for mature skin, look for a firming, moisturizing mask. Using a deep-cleansing facial mask will help bring out that fresh summer glow.
[h=3]Deep moisturizing[/h] Winter can make skin dull and lifeless, especially if you already have dry skin. After cleansing your face with a facial mask or scrub, try using a rich moisturizer that works well with your skin type. A heavy cream moisturizer works best for dry and mature skin while a light moisturizer works well for oily skin. For radiant skin, look for a moisturizer that contains emollients and humectants. These key ingredients help restore moisture deep within the skin and make it look smooth and fresh for hours. Always moisturize at night before bedtime so your skin can absorb the cream thoroughly.
[h=3]Remove facial hair[/h] Don't let unsightly facial hair get in the way of a fresh summer look. There are safe and easy ways to remove it at home without irritating or damaging your skin. Try a depilatory like the Nair Face Roll-On Wax Kit. The roll-on applicator makes it easy to apply the sugar wax mixture, and it easily rinses off of skin, leaving your skin smooth for up to eight weeks. Removing facial hair will help your face look fresh and clear with summer makeup or without.
[h=3]Glow with a powder bronzer[/h] Give your skin that sun-kissed look without damaging it with harmful ultraviolet rays by using a powder bronzer with your makeup or alone. Powder bronzer applied lightly to the cheeks, forehead, temples, jawline, chin and neck brightens your skin and gives it that fresh, tanned look. Be sure to choose the correct color for your skin. A bronzer should be only one shade darker than your own skin so it blends well. Use peach or honey tones on light skin, golden or rose tones on medium skin and coppery or cinnamon tones on darker skin.
