Hello,

I understand your concern about skin care.

I would like to give some tips to make your skin healthy and glowing.

1)     You should wash your face 3-4 times a day. You have oily skin so you need to use face wash like CETAPHIL CLEANSING LOTION FOR OILY SKIN or AHA GLOW. Both are good for oily skin.
2)     Sun protection is must in summer as UV rays damage the skin. You should apply sunscreen with gel base. You can use SUNCROSS AQUA GEL. Please apply it before 20 minutes of sun exposure and re apply after every 4 hours.
3)     Hydration of skin is necessary for healthy skin in summer. You should drink 12-15 glasses of water per day. You can take fruit juices.
4)     Wearing full cloths and cap will provide additional protection to skin.
5)     As you have oily skin you should use oil free moisturizer after bath like VENUSIA LOTION.
6)     In diet, take green vegetables and fruits. Vitamin C containing food like orange, lemon is good for skin.

I hope I answered your question.
Let me know, if you have further query.

Regards

Hi

Thank you for writing back.

You should apply moisturizer immediately after bath or face wash. Moisturizer are known to produce better results when applied within 10 minutes after bath. You can apply sun screen gel after 10-15 minutes over it. There is no need to wash moisturizer.

Let me know if you have further question.

Hello

Thank you for writing back.

Venusia lotion is good moisturizer and suits your skin well.

For black heads removal you need to consult dermatologist. Special instrument called comedone extraction is used to remove it.

I hope I answered your question.
