There are Many Ways to Take Care of Oily Skin in Order to Reduce Skin Imperfections

 

1)      Clean Your Skin Daily

Since it is sebum production, that is responsible for the appearance of blackheads and other skin imperfections, you must regulate its production and this is done by performing a thorough cleaning of your face every morning and evening.

First, if there is makeup on your face, proceed to its removal to unclog your skin’s pores to make it breathe. After, clean your face with a non-comedogenic product like a gel and then apply a cleansing lotion. Finally, do yourself a mask, preferably a clay one, once a week.

2)      Moisturizing Your Face is Important

Contrary to some beliefs suggest, oily skin also needs to be moisturized. Indeed, you must moisturize your skin every morning and evening with a non-fat cream to mitigate the shiny effect caused by oily skin.

3)      Feed Yourself Well to Reduce the Effects of Oily Skin

Although there is no miracle diet that will eliminate oily skin forever, there are steps you can take regarding your diet that can help you.

Avoid eating fried and fatty foods, sodas and alcohol and eat a balanced diet. Also, drink lots of water, about 1.5 liters per day. Indeed, drinking water is a simple way to take care of your skin.

4)      If Your Skin is Oily, Apply Makeup in Moderation

If you have oily skin, you must not apply makeup in excess. For example, putting too much foundation will not benefit you because of the bad looking mask effect it will create on your skin in addition to clogging your pores with makeup. Therefore, we recommend to use a light foundation specifically designed for oily skin.

Furthermore, in terms of eye makeup, avoid anything that might drip.

5)      Protect Yourself From the Sun

A short exposure to the sun is beneficial to treat pimples. However, long-term exposure can damage your skin so you must protect yourself with creams that have at least an SPF of 15 or 20 when you go outside.

6)      Read the Labels of the Products That are on Store Shelves Before Buying Them

You must buy products that are tailored to the specifics of your own skin. For example, if you have oily skin, products that contain salicylic acid or thermal water will benefit your skin while those that contain alcohol will cause you problems.

7)      If Your Skin Problems Persist, Consult a Dermatologist

Sometimes skin problems are more complex to solve than changing diet or skin products. Indeed, it is possible that this is a hormonal problem. In this case, we strongly suggest you consult a dermatologist. With his or her expertise, he will be able to recommend a suitable treatment for your situation.
