Oily skin is a very common skin type, which unfortunately makes the maintaining of healthy and beautiful skin more difficult because of the excessive production of oil. People with oily skin feel that whatever they do, their face starts to shine after few hours. There are ways to keep oily skin fresh and clean, but it requires commitment and exemption from some unhealthy habits. Read this article and you will find beauty tricks that will help your skin look fresh and clean.
This is not a trick, but a necessity: every skin needs to be treated with proper products. Oily skin requires face creams that won’t encourage production of oil, are not overly nutritious for the skin like the creams for dry skin, but are enough moisturizing. If your skin is acne prone, use anti-acne products for washing and toning the face. You can use lotions that contain alcohol, but not continuously because they tend to dry out the skin. Yes, oily skin can be dry when it’s not moisturized properly, but still produce oil that makes it shine. Using a primer before your foundation will prevent a shiny T-zone and help the skin appear clean for longer. You need to exfoliate your skin regularly, use the Sigma Brushes Cleansing & Polishing Tool Kit. If you can afford professional treatments once a month, they will help you a lot. If not, there are home remedies that will keep oily skin in good condition, but the care asks for constant commitment. We cannot stress this enough: never ever miss the morning and evening cleaning and moisturizing if you have oily skin!
Home-made beauty tricks
There are homemade beauty tricks that can help your skin look healthy and prevent acne. Lemon is always recommended for people with oily skin, because it helps heal the acne scars. You can make a mixture of lemon juice, a couple of peeled and mashed grapes and one egg white. All of these products are good for oily skin: the lemon will clean it, grapes will make it softer and the egg whites will make the skin tighter. Apply the mixture on the face and neck, leave it on for twenty minutes and wash it off with warm water. The result will be obvious instantly. Apples are also good for oily skin. You can use them in the simplest way: just cut a thin slice of apple and rub it on the oily area. Leave the juice to soak into the skin for at least 10 minutes, and wash your face. I don’t have to tell you this, but here it goes: don’t eat the used piece of apple. Cucumbers are also very effective in skin care of oily skin. Get 100ml of organic rose water and add 50ml of cucumber water and one teaspoon of lemon juice. Keep this lotion in the fridge and use it twice a day. It really does wonders!
No matter how many useful beauty tricks we teach you, your skin won’t get in shape unless you get free of some nasty habits. People with oily skin tend to touch their face too often. This leads to even greater oil production. Plus, if your hands aren’t clean – you’ll spread germs to your face and they will cause acne break out. It is also important to clean your phone regularly to prevent the spread of bacteria. Don’t scrub your skin during exfoliation too much and don’t use hot water to wash it. Clean your makeup brushes regularly! Never use soap to wash your face! You may like the matt effect it provides after the washing, but it is not actually mattifying, it’s just drying and it does no good to your skin. Reduce hot spices and cigarettes, because they give the skin unhealthy tone.
