How to get rid of oily skin this summer? – DE-GREASE Face Wash

When it comes to deal with summers, oily skin needs special attention.

While most of us love summer, the sunshine, beaches, outings with family & friends but we’re not a fan of what the hot season does to our skin, especially oily skin.

Over the summer, temperature and humidity level rises. These environmental changes encourage the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum. This leads to undesired facial oiliness,”

Since your facial skin has most concentrated sebaceous glands hence, it’s the shiniest part.

As oil & sweat makes a stubborn combination which will lead to breakouts like blackheads, whiteheads, acne, and other skin woes.

Genetics define your skin and everyone has a different skin type. The appearance of one’s skin reflects the overall health of the body.
