A glossy sheen could be a gorgeous thing on your face only if it comes from a bomb highlighter. Oil shine is never a good shine. Your skin could be oily because of the overactive sebaceous glands that produce excessive oil. Many a times you might be over oily due to stress, greasy food, genes, hormones, summer season and wrong beauty products. The worst part of having that oily skin is that there comes the breakouts, blackheads, and enlarged pores too. What a trouble!
You can choose to avoid this oily skin nightmare with the daily right skin care routine. Read on to keep your face oil in check.
Start of your skin care routine with a water based cleanser that cleans dirt and impurities and keeps your pores unclogged. The best approach would be if you use a salicylic acid based cleanser to keep acne breakouts at a distance as this powerful BHA exfoliates the surface and penetrates the skin to clear the oil build-ups.
Exfoliating your skin twice a week is important. Scrub off the dead skin cells with a mild exfoliant and reduce the oil production to prevent blackheads and acne.
If you are using some real nice products for your skin’s health but not using a toner then there you are mistaken big time mate! Toner helps your skin absorb active ingredients from the skin products you apply later on. It also magically minimizes the appearance of pores. With all its benefits how can one possibly miss using a toner?
Incorporate a nice charcoal or Moroccan clay mask in your skin care routine if you wanna see wonders happening for your skin’s oiliness. Masks or peels that have Glycolic Acid are the best ones for oily skins.
Serums for different skin concerns are the talk of the town these days. Whether you skin is dehydrated, aging, dull or acne prone, you will get a separate serum for everything. Just keep in mind your serum has to be lightweight and easily penetrable.
A huge misconception among women is that they skip using a moisturizer if their skin is oily. That’s one of the worst things you can do for your skin. You just need to use water based creams instead of oil based ones that lock in the hydration without getting your oil glands overdrive.
If you think you can step out without using a sunscreen on a sunny day then hey guess what, YOU CANNOT! Sunscreen is an essential part of the day time oily skin care routine. A mineral based product with Zinc or Titanium Dioxide that absorbs oil would do for your skin.
Oiliness on the face doesn’t go easy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. First things first, rather than blindly following a skin care routine your favorite influencer follows, figure out what works for you and simply keep oiliness at bay.
