Oily Skin Care Tips for Healthy Skin

Oily Skin

Oily skin can be troublesome especially when it can seem excessive, and is a haven for pimples, blackheads and blemishes. Luckily, if treated with care, oily skin can be tamed as well as look & feel healthy. Below are a few tips to help to get you on your way to being comfortable in your skin.

    • When it comes to facial washing, how much is too much? Anything more than once in the morning and once at night is excessive and can in fact cause the skin to produce more oil as over-washing can have a drying effect on skin. Over-washing is counterproductive when it comes to oily skin. Also, be sure not to scrub as this too can encourage oil production.
    • When washing the face, be sure to use a gentle cleanser specifically designed for oily or acne-prone skin, as such products will be more effective compared to regular cleansers. Make sure to avoid cleanser containing alcohol as these products will in fact dry out the skin causing the body to produce more sebum so that skin becomes oiler. To find out which cleanser works best for you, consider keeping a log of the ones you have used and how your skin reacted. This way, you will know which one worked best for you and can stick with that one.
    • Toners should only be used on oily areas, so if you have combination skin, use the toner on the oily parts which tend to be the forehead and nose area. Also ensure the toner is alcohol-free so does not have a drying effect. Consider Rosewater for a light, refreshing feel. And exfoliate no more than once a week to remove excess dirt & oil and to unclog pores.
    • Moisturise! Yes, moisturise. Even though your skin may feel oily and you are reluctant to do so, skin needs moisturiser. Just make sure it is a light, water-based or oil-free moisturiser that is non-comedogenic. This same rule applies to make up products too. Foundations, concealers or blush for example, should also be oil-free and non-comedogenic so that they will not clog pores and exacerbate skin conditions.
    • Sunscreen is a must for every skin type and should be applied daily to help protect skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays which can lead to brown spots, freckles, pigmentation and wrinkles. A gel-based sunscreen is ideal for those with oily skin as it does not leave a greasy-feeling on the skin’s surface…so no excuses.

    Finally, incorporate help: clear skin or help: clear skin MEN into your daily life to work from within to help keep skin clear. Its active ingredients and all-natural formulation work in harmony with the body to help regulate sebum production, effectively.
