Tips For Oily Skin
Everyone knows oily skin needs extra care. Oily skin is thicker and often produces much oil. Dead skin cells on the surface can block the pores. Not only can oily skin affect teenagers, but also it can affect people of other age groups and cause pimples or blemishes. Learning how to care for oily skin requires time and patience. This article will give you some tips that will help with managing oily skin.
1. Twice is nice
This is one of the most important steps in your daily routine. Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing are three essential steps to clean oily skin regardless of your skin type. Many people who have oily skin feel they do not need any moisturizer but that is a beauty blunder.
2. Be gentle with your skin
Use a water-soluble cleanser to gently clean without stimulating oil glands, increasing redness, or creating dryness or irritation and you will experience how nice your skin feels.
3. Exfoliate regularly
Along with dead cells, exfoliating removes dirt and oil inside your pores. By cleaning through exfoliation, the pores will diminish in size. Depending on your skin type, plan to exfoliate between one to two times a week.
4. Face TLC
Your skin deserves some extra Tender Loving Care. Facial masks are a great way to nourish and refresh the skin and have proven to clarify, improve skin tone, and reduce blemishes or pimples. After cleansing chooses a deep pore cleansing mask to complement your skincare routine.
5. Change to water-based moisturizer
Use a water-based moisturizer or facial serum. Serums can also help most skin conditions and can be used by all skin types, including oily skin. Although designed to work with your everyday moisturizer, during summer time you may get away with only using a serum to hydrate the skin.
