How To Apply Facial oil in summers

Applying the facial oil in summers is different from any other season, as it’s during the summers when we have to lather on a lot of products before stepping out of the house.

Deep Cleaning

 You need to first clean your face with a mild cleanser or a face wash to get rid of any dirt or product from the skin. If you have applied makeup then use micellar water or makeup removing balm to meltdown and remove the makeup from the face and then clean it with a foaming or gel-based face wash.


Take a towel and pat dry your face with a towel after washing it with a mild cleaner. Once you have cleaned your face, it’s time to use some toner on the face to remove any remaining impurity or dirt. A toner is also great for tightening your pores and making it look refreshed.

Putting The Facial Oil

Take your favourite facial oil and squeeze out 3-4 drops of it on your palms. Rub the oil between your palms to activate the ingredients and then gently dab and the oil on your face, avoiding the eye and mouth area.  Smooth out the oil with light hands-on entire face and neck area. Let the oil sit for 5 minutes before applying any other product on top of it.


Apply a lightweight moisturizer on top of the facial oil on your entire face and neck before going to the bed. Make sure you are not using any heavy moisturizer in the summers as the facial oil is enough to provide moisturisation to the skin, heavy moisturizer can lead to breakouts in summers.
