Hi Ankita

Welcome to the forum.

You should not be worried about the simple problem of your skin. What you are suffering from is quite common condition in people with sensitive skin condition which some times behaves both as dry skin and oily at places.

The very first thing you should do is avoiding direct sunlight exposure to the skin. Even if you are avoiding the same then also there is exposure of UV radiations from computers and other artificial light sources, so should also take care of the same. the best avoidance is never at all by sunscreen but is by personal protection by clothes and umbrellas.

Contact with Cell phone on facial skin (because of radiation and heat )also make the skin sensitive.

Secondly you should start up your day drinking water and make it a routine to drink more than 10-15 glasses of liquids/day.

Start eating a lot of Vitamin C and A containing fruits ( all yellow and sour fruits will do).

Avoid waking till late night, take good sleep of 8-9 hours.

Finally what you are using is fine, the only thing is don't rub your face wash excessively and more than 3 times a day. Use your moisturizing cream immediately after washing your face when it is still wet in minimum possible amount otherwise it will lead to eruptions on the face in this summer season. Your sunscreen is fine. Try to avoid touching your face bare minimum as give dark patches because of irritation and avoid stress.
By following above things slowly your skin will follow a normal course in few weeks of time.

Best of luck for your marriage.

With best regards,
