How to take care of your oily skin

Updated on October 16, 2011

The finest thing about oily skin is that it is additional confined from environmental influences and premature ageing because it produces its own defending film. This, however, becomes a crisis when the layer begins to shine on the outside of the skin. Collected with dead cells, it blocks the pores.

Consistent care of greasy skin can give it a tidy appearance. In specific, it can stop the pores becoming blocked too rapidly which causes blackheads to improve, which then turn into spots. What you can't expect from precise attention is a original change of skin type. Oily skin is liable to problems, and doesn't change in any actual sense until after middle age.

Cleansing is the most significant thing for oily skins, and needs to be done carefully. The best products to use are non-alkaline provision. These are liquid washing lotions or firm, soap-type washing substances, containing alkaline-free cleansing substances. They degrease the skin more totally than cleansing milk, and do not alter _as soap will _the skin’s natural pH value. As oily skins are also effective at night, you should cleanse the skin totally each morning.

A nice toner does oily skin a lot of good. It freshens, refines the ascend of the skin for hours, and above all prevents shine showing through too rapidly. Besides a proportion of alcohol, a lotion to combat oily skin should also contain additives to close pores and antiseptic to resist infections.

Creams are only necessary sparingly on oily skins. The best thing to use. is a thin liquid blend with moisture and possibly a tiny oil, or a wholly fat-free gel. As the oil content is only specified on a few products, obtain care when buying preparations, and only buy those that are particularly made for oil skin. This is important so as to avoid greasy substances that encourage the build-up of blackheads. With special preparations you can be moderately certain that they are free of such substances.

Valuable extras: preparations containing grains, which peel the skin, are a good idea for greasy skin. These stimulate the blood circulation and loosen any hard skin, so that the skin appears softer and clearer. This should be done two or three times a week instead of normal cleansing.

Cleansing masks have a similar effect to peeling preparations and also tone the skin. Many cleansing masks contain gentle substances that help infections to repair more quickly. A cleansing mask is recommended as a preparation for make-up that needs to be particularly beautiful and long-lasting.

Eye cream makes sense when the first fine lines begin to show, as the skin on the eyelids of an otherwise greasy skin is at all times dry and therefore unprotected.
