Cleanse Using A Natural Face Cleanser

It’s high time you ditch that regular cleanser from your skincare routine. Regular cleansers strip the skin of its natural oil balance and make it more prone to damage. Get your hands on a highly effective Purifying Cleanser for oily skin from Shankara India and witness the difference. 

Our effective yet gentle cleanser deeply cleanses your skin and removes excess oil, leaving it moisturized and calm. Natural ingredients like Neem, Olive Leaf, and Manjistha add to the goodness of this cleanser by protecting the skin's natural acid mantle. Summer skincare for oily skin is incomplete without this step.

Use Face Mask

Kapha, or oily skin, has a natural tendency towards congestion, making it more prone to acne, blackheads, and the buildup of dead skin cells. Using an Ayurvedic Face Mask like the Balance Oxygenating Mask can help you revitalize and nourish your skin by absorbing excess oil and improving skin tone. 

Infused with the richness of Ayurveda-trusted ingredients like Red Clay, Menthol and Manjistha, the mask delivers nutrients to the skin while giving it a rejuvenated appearance.

Preparing your skin before getting into a skincare regime is a must. A toner or mist helps de-stress, combat dryness, tone the skin, and relax the mind. To that end, you can include Shankara India’s Rose Facial Mist, which is made using Roses, Aloe, and Agar Agar. It provides a natural hydration to your skin while leaving a cooling sensation. With our mist, you are one step ahead in achieving the skin of your dreams. 

Apply A Hydrating Moisturiser

Because your skin is oily, you do not qualify for skipping a hydrating moisturizer in your skincare routine. The lightweight formulation of Balance Moisturiser can easily absorb into your skin, making it feel nourished and refreshed. The richness of Green Tea and Bitter Orange in our moisturizer balances sebum production stimulates blood circulation, promotes cell regeneration, and strengthens the skin’s barrier without making your skin look greasy.

Be Mindful Of What You Eat

Last but not least, a balanced diet is essential for maintaining the health of your skin. Avoid food items that are high on the glycemic index, as they cause blood sugar levels to rise, thus increasing sebum production. Include more fruits, vegetables, raw carrots, kidney beans, chickpeas, lentils, and bran breakfast cereals in your diet, as they are low on the glycemic index. Drink lots of water and juices, as they assist in keeping your skin healthy by controlling oil production on the skin.
