Hi girls! Today my post is about Oily Skin. Most of the girls have this problem. Oily skin is caused by over-active glands, which produce too much sebum. Sebum is produced by the sebaceous glands. It is necessary as it helps lubricate your skin and carries away dead skin cells. When the skin is oily, too much sebum is being produced. The right oily skin care is essential for anyone with oily skin. Oily skin does not look healthy and is prone to skin problems like acne. It is important that such skin be given proper treatment for oily skin. So I will share you some tips in this post-Oily Skin.
How to care oily face :
Oily skin, and the problems it brings, can be minimized. Thorough cleansing can prevent some of the problems associated with oily skin, as it removes the dirt and dust and stops the pores becoming clogged. As make-up can also clog pores, it is important that all make-up is removed before going to bed. Here are some more tips on how to have less oily skin.
Natural care for oily skin:
To improve your oily skin through nutrition, eat plenty of foods that are rich in protein. Include lots of leafy vegetables and fresh fruit. Vitamin B2 can help prevent oily skin, so include good sources of B2 by eating wheat germs, whole grains, beans and nuts. Cut down on the amount of sugar and fat in your diet, and avoid soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, chocolate and fried food.
People sometimes make the mistake that oily skin does not need to be hydrated, but oil is not moisture. Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water. A good moisturiser, that is suited to oily skin, can also help keep your oily skin hydrated.
Market supplement and creams:
When using artificial creams or supplements for oily skin care, it is important to pick products that are suited for treatment for oily skin. Avoid products that contain harsh chemicals or alcohol. Products that dry out the skin should not be used, as these may cause the skin to compensate by producing more sebum. It is important that oily skin is kept thoroughly clean. Stay away from harsh cleansers. Instead choose a pure soap, with no artificial additives. Antibacterial cleansing lotions can be effective in cleansing oily skin. Astringents that contain acetone are good for oily skin, as acetone dissolves oil. When choosing a moisturiser for oily skin, it is particularly important to choose the right one. Choose a moisturiser that is specifically made for oily skin. Oil-free moisturisers are best. Do not over-apply your moisturiser. Supplements can assist in oily skin treatment, as they help keep the skin healthy and prevent problems. Evening primrose oil is a good supplement to take for oily skin care.
