The summer season is at its peak these days and caring for the skin becomes a great topic of concern for both men and women. It becomes a great challenge for working people and students to follow their tedious routine daily while the sun is showering flames.
Summers become a greater problem if you have oily skin. In this season, the pores of the oily skin open that which allow the dirt and pollution to enter. This is the main cause of pimples and acne. A couple of my readers requested me to write about some basic and easy tips and tricks that they can follow in summers for their oily and combination skin.
Some easy and basic tips you should follow in summers
1- Oily skin girls should avoid spicy and fried food in this season. Try to take a lot of liquids like buttermilk, fresh fruit juices, watermelon, melon, yogurt and lot of water. Increase the quantity of more green leafy vegetables in your diet. Vegetable salad, fruit salad should be a part of your meal.
2- Clean your skin with lukewarm water. It dissolves the oil of your skin easily. You should clean your face twice a day but don't forget to put splashes of fresh water on your face whenever you get a chance. Wipe your skin gently.

There is a trick for you. Take a tiny amount of your moisturizer on your fingers. Spray some rose water on it. mix them and apply all over your face and neck.
