Summer special face washes

Apr 17, 2015, 17:36 IST

This season you may or may not want to wear makeup but something that you simply cannot do without is a face wash. They are your best friends this summer!
Since the humidity and the sweat can clog your pores and lead to breakouts, you need to wash your face more often. However, ripping off the natural oils from the skin or disrupt the PH balance will also lead to skin problems. Therefore, choosing a face wash wisely is important.

For dry skin, a cream based face wash works best while a foaming or a gel one is ideal for oily skin. Normal to combination skin type can opt for a gel based face wash this season to keep the overall hydration intact. Instead of getting spoilt for choice and randomly experimenting, we help you opt for the right face wash.
