In summer there is a tendency for increased secretion of the skin’s natural oils. So one ends up looking oily and sticky. And as a consequence of this one is likely to develop blackheads or has to cope up with a flare up of acne. At any time, it is bad for skins to have blemishes, spots, or sport an uncared-for look. More so, in summer, when the world probably sees rather more of you than is normally displayed.
How to counteract this? A scrupulous cleansing regimen to prevent a grease build-up on the surface of your skin. Besides washing your face more than twice a day with a suitable cleanser and dabbing astringents to tighten your pores, you need to use a clay mask once in a week or twice a week if you feel too sticky. Why clay mask? Simply, because unlike harsh astringents, clay masks don’t interfere with the moisture-producing glands that naturally lubricate your skin. Besides, masks pull embedded grime and impurities from your pores, then tighten them.
But before using any suitable clay mask like a multani mitti mask, you must make the pores of the skin to open up to release their slime. How do you do this? Prepare a bowl of hot, steaming water and set it on a flat surface. Drape a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl so that the edges of the towel fall just outside the rim of the vessel. Let the steam dilate your pores for at least 5 minutes, and then apply the mask. Keep it on for 15-20 minutes till the mask dries up and it begins to tighten around your skin. Then wash off with cold water, taking care not to rub the skin vigorously while patting it dry with a towel. And voila, you will feel so fresh and clean. Your dull, oily face will brighten up instantly and your skin will feel smoother. It has worked wonders for me; there is no reason why it shouldn’t work for you.
So go ahead and try this multani mitti mask this summer to get rid of that grease sticking on to your skin..
