a. if i use moisturiser than after couple of hours when in a condition to go outdoor than should we apply sunscreen above moisturiser or wash moisturiser with cleanser and than apply sunscreen ?
b. if i use sunscreen than after couple of hours when in a condition to go outdoor than should we apply sunscreen above firstly apply sunscreen or wash with cleanser and than apply sunscreen ?
c. if moisturiser used and dont go outdoor condition than should we re apply moisturiser or not if yes than   after how many hours later ? and same question again above previous moisturiser or wash with cleanser and than re apply moisturiser
d. if sunscreen used and dont go outdoor condition than should we re apply sunscreen or not if yes than   after how many hours later ? and same question again above previous sunscreen or wash with cleanser and than re apply sunscreen

Hi Tittu,

1)One should not wash their face not more than 2-3 times a day.

2)It is not mandatory to apply after shave or moisturiser after shaving but it does help to soothe the skin and minimise any irritation after shaving.If you feel the need then you can apply aloe vera gel like aloe veda aloe vera gel or calamine lotion like lacto calamine,calak lotion etc.I do not advise after shave lotion as they are alcohol based and could irritate the skin or cause dryness.

3)After your exercise routine,take bath and apply sunscreen during day.Since you have oily skin,I don't suppose you require additional moisturiser.

4)If you outdoors,no need to re apply moisturiser.Wash your face with plain water or use a wet wipe and re apply sunscreen.Remember sunscreen always goes first then other products follow.

5)Regarding oily face,as I suggested before use glycolic acid face wash like Glogeous.Using oil-free and matte products also helps.Moisturiser for oily skin is not a must.Oily skin can do without moisturisers.Unless really necessary you can skip moisturiser or opt for light moisturiser like aloe vera gels.Using too many products can make skin oily very fast.Dusting off with a little talc,helps too.You can always use tissue paper or blotting papers to blot off excess oil.

6)There is no need to apply sunscreen after sunset or in the evenings after 6pm or so.

7)Sweat after working out or any physical activity is pretty obvious.Your body is under strain and burning calories,body temperature also increases.So just carry a clean towel or tissue paper when you go out for a run.Once you reach home,take a bath and face your face with a cleanser.If you feel the need to apply anything,then you can apply moisturiser or aloe vera gel or kaya night cream.

8)Regarding how to use cleansers:First wash your hands.Wet your face and palm.Take little cleanser(dilute if necessary) and lightly massage on face including eyelids,under eye,nose corners etc.Then rinse it off with water.

9)There is no harm in applying sunscreen on eye lids,under eye area.

10)My favourite moisturisers and sunscreen:I normally dont apply moisturiser unless I face dryness.I opt for moisturising sunscreens as I do not like layering too many products plus I have oily skin so like to keep it to a minimum.I use Kaya Moisturising Sunscreen SPF 15 when I am indoors and Sunprotek Gel Sunscreen SPF 30 when I am outdoors.Evening I wash my face then apply Aloe veda Aloe vera gel.

11)It is a myth that products should not be used during night.Using right kind of products as per your skin type and requirement do not damage your skin.Skin also suffers damage during day time due to sun exposure,dirt,pollution,stress,make up etc.So it is good habit to use a night cream to repair the skin damage and rejuvenate.As you grow older,one has to step up their skin care regimen.

You can use Vitamin E cream,there is no harm.If you tell me more about the product then I can help you out further.I am guessing you are a college goer in your early 20's so you can try kaya night cream.Use a search box above to check out the reviews of the products I mentioned here.It is a moisturising cream with Azelaic acid and Vitamin C.

Hi Tittu,

Thank you for your kind words.

1)Kaya Soothing Gel Cleanser is definitely one of the best cleansers I have tried,my personal favourite too.Its works great for oily-acne prone skin.

2)What exactly was your problem with Lotus Sunscreen?Can tell me which one exactly cause they have many versions?If you find Sunprotek oily then you might find same issue with Kaya Spf 15 because it is moisturising sunscreen like Sunprotek.Try the 9 to 5 Lakme Mattifying Sunscreen or La Shield or Ansolar Gel Sunscreen.

3)Kaya and Sunprotek are both non-comedogenic sunscreens.When you are indoors you don't need high sun protection so SPF 15 will do.You will high SPF when you are outdoors.If possible you can just wash with plain water or just re apply no issues either way.

Hi Aman,

1)The days you don't use Proactiv,there is no need to apply anything.You can follow up with Epiduo.

2)Yes Sunscreen always goes first.

3)Normally one has to apply sunscreen every 3-4 hours.
