Skin care: Natural care of oily skin

Updated on May 24, 2011

Benefits of having oily skin

Yes benefits. I always hear people of oily skin complaining and feel they're less lucky. In fact, they're lucky people because researches have proved that people of oily skin usually have less wrinkles per square inch than those of dry skin of the same age. So smile you're lucky.

Another benefit is that they don't have problems associated with dry skin. Actually dry skin problems are more difficult to deal with so feel lucky again having oily skin. Dry skin looks chalky when the weather changes, or when it's so cold. Foundation tends to look better after a few hours on oily skin, while it disappears or looks like "pancakeor" on dry skin after a few hours.

How to know that you have oily skin?

Your skin is oily if:

1- it tends to look shiny or oily.

2- you suffer from frequent blackheads and whiteheads.

3-  you see pores all over your face.

Why should you clean you oily skin?

Oily skin contains a lot of sebum, that helps prevent the skin from drying out. However, it tends to attract more dirt and dust than dry skin.

So, oily skin requires more skin care and cleaning than dry skin. So always remember that you have to keep your skin clean. You mustn't stick to regular times for cleaning. You should only stick to keep it clean. I recomend night time before your go to bed, and when ever you turn home.

How to clean oily skin?

I know that if you have many duties to do you might leave them all. The most important thing to know is you have to avoid using soap on your skin.

2 important time in the day when you should clean your face

At night: Use cleaners which don't have perfumes then suitable moisturiser for oily skin.

In the morning: only use warm water at least three time to loosen the dirt, and then use cold water to rinse.

Natural masks for oily skin.

1- Egg white: Separate egg white, mix it and use a piece of cotton to spread on your face. Leave it to dry then wahs it with warm water and rinse with cold water.

2- Oatmeal and honey: Make a paste with raw oatmeal, drops of lemon juice and honey, spread it gently on your face with your fingers. leave for 10 minutes, remove with a washcloth then wash with warm water and rinse with cold water.

3- Cucumber mask: Take cucumber core and smash it very well and squeez. Spread the juice on your face and leave it to dry. Wash with warm water and rinse with cold water.

4- Banana mask: Mix a smashed banana with 1tbsp honey together then add a few drops of lemon juice "use orange juice if available". Spread on your face, leave it for 15 minutes then rinse with a cool washcloth or a steaming warm washcloth.

5- Strawberry mask: Smash 3 ripe strawberries and add 1 tsp yugort and mix well. Apply to your face and leave it for 15 minutes then rinse with a cool washcloth or a steaming warm washcloth.
