Your Essential Summer Skincare Routine for Dry, Oily, and Combination Skin

Summers are here and it's time to redefine your summer wardrobe and skincare routine. Well, with summer fashion, stocking your wardrobe with breathable and light cotton clothes will help you stay cool and enjoy the weather. However, when it comes to the summer skincare routine, things might be more complex. Often, your skin bears the adverse effects of the scorching summer heat in various ways.

The weather transition can stress your existing skin conditions which may take considerable time to cure and restore the youthful and healthy appearance of your skin. So, whether you have oily, combination, or dry skin type, this ultimate skincare guide will help you devise the perfect skincare routine throughout the season!

Importance of Having Summer Skincare Routine Based on Skin Type:

Before we dive deep into different skin routines, it is vital to understand why you need a summer skincare routine in the first place. During summer, our skin experiences certain changes that can lead to skin issues such as sunburn, rashes, tanning, hyperpigmentation, breakouts, acne, heat boils, and more. Simply washing your face several times a day or skipping on moisturisers, can do no good to your skin. Instead, it can contribute to new and stubborn skin issues that you may or may not be familiar with.

A healthy and right skincare routine can do wonders, making your skin appear hydrated, fresh, and radiant which is always ready to beat the heat. Additionally, it is also vital to remember that different skin types require unique skincare routines that help combat sun damage, humidity, and common skin conditions based on your skin type.

If you experience dryness right after taking a bath, have a constant feeling of facial skin tightness, and more, you probably have a dry skin type. On the other hand, if your face feels shiny, you experience excessive sebum production, and have to bear constant acne and breakout issues, you may have an oily skin type. Combination skin types usually have a skin type which is a mix of dry and oily skin types such as oily and dry spots on your face, breakouts and dry patches at the same time, large pores in T-zone, and more. Now that you have understood your skin type and the importance of a summer skincare routine, let us explore the different skincare routines suitable for your skin.

Summer Skincare Routine for Dry Skin:

The summer skincare routine for dry skin helps combat skin issues such as skin irritation, water loss, breakouts, and more. Here are some tips to consider:

1. Hydrating facewash: Despite having a dry skin type, you should never skip on your facewash. Use gentle and hydrating facewash such as Pond's Hydra Light Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Gel Facewash to get rid of accumulated dust, dirt, and bacteria, while maintaining the right pH value and skin hydration.

2. Moisturiser: Without a doubt, moisturiser is a must! Use Pond's Super Light Gel moisturiser with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E as the key ingredients during the day hours and Pond's Hydra Light Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Night Gel before you hit the bed. This simple routine will ensure your skin is not only hydrated but also nourished throughout the day.

3. Serum: To give your skin extra care, add Pond's Hydra Light Hyaluronic Acid Complex 2% Serum in your skincare routine before applying your moisturiser and sunscreen during the day and before hitting your bed at night.

4. Sunscreen: Ensure to apply and reapply Pond's Sun Miracle SPF 50 PA+++ Light Sunscreen infused with the goodness of 3% active Niacinamide throughout the day. Wearing sunscreen during the summer season can help you fight sun damage issues and contribute to keeping your skin nourished and healthy.

Summer Skincare Routine for Oily Skin:

The skincare routine for oily skin in Summer can help you control excess oil, prevent acne and breakouts, and maintain healthy-looking skin.

1. Cleanser: Oily skin type is prone to enlarged pores, unwanted shine, clogged pores, and more. Using a good cleanser can help get rid of the build-up of oil, dirt, and dead skin cells, creating a clean base for other skincare products to contribute to the overall well-being of your skin.

2. Toner: Applying a toner after cleaning your face, can help remove any remaining impurities and minimise the appearance of pores.

3. Lightweight moisturiser: For oily skin Super Light Gel with Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin E can work wonders in retaining moisture in your skin without making it look greasy or heavy.

4. Sunscreen: Never leave your house without applying Pond's Sun Miracle with SPF 50 PA+++ and 3% Active Niacinamide The combination of lightweight sunscreen with Niacinamide helps you retain the production of excessive oil while protecting your skin from sunburn and other damage.

Summer Skincare Routine for Combination Skin:

Here are the tips to help upgrade your skin-care routine for combination skin in summer:

1. Facewash: For combination skin, it is vital to use skincare products that help balance your skin without making it appear too dry or oily. Pond's Hydra Light Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Gel Facewash is the perfect option for combination skin in summer.

2. Moisturiser: Make a habit of applying lightweight gel moisturiser right after your facewash to ensure your skin is hydrated and well-nourished.

3. Sunscreen: Lock your day's skincare routine with Pond's Sun Miracle SPF 50 PA+++ Creame Gel Sunscreen with Hyaluronic Acid on days your skin needs extra moisture and Pond's Sun Miracle SPF 50 PA+++ Light Sunscreen with Niacinamide on days you need a light sunscreen with a non-oily finish.


Along with using Pond's exclusive skincare, it is imperative to take care of your overall health during the summer season. Drink plenty of water and have a balanced diet that helps you combat dehydration and humidity issues. And, most importantly, give your skincare product some time to show positive lasting effects that help restore the radiant, smooth, and beautiful appearance of your skin.
