For starters always wash your face several times with plain water to get over the sweating normally associated with humidity. Use fruit based or strawberry based facewash twice a day to reduce excess oiliness .Freshen up the skin even more with a natural toner like chilled rose water or cucumber juice. Wipe your face with cotton balls dipped in either one of these refreshing toners – they will not only freshen up your skin , but also close the pores and reduce excessive oiliness.
Goes without saying that oily heavy creams are a no-no in this sultry weather. Use light aloevera gel or rose water based moisturisers to hydrate the skin naturally without making them oily.People with oily skin must be noticing how the skin gets even more oilier &duller in humid weather, and get more outbreaks of clogged pores and blackheads. Regular scrubbing twice and deep pore cleansing twice a week helps unclog the pores and reduce oiliness & acne.
