What To Do For Oily Skin

What To Do For Oily Skin

Oily skin can happen at various stages in life and it can be a frustrating experience. This is especially true if you have tried multiple products and solutions and haven't found a decent result. There are plenty of reasons why you may have oily skin. From hormonal changes through to weather conditions, it's a condition many people deal with. It could also be due to your genetics as to how oily your skin can get. 

Another reason you may have oily skin is if you have been using products that are too harsh for your skin. These can make your skin excessively dry and therefore your skin tries to compensate by producing more oil. There are a few ways you can help combat oily skin to help you feel more confident and have clearer skin, no matter what age you are.


Start with cleansing

If you’re not already partaking in a daily skincare routine (blasphemy!), start with cleansing twice a day with a suitable cleanser with oily skin types in mind. If you have overactive oil glands in your skin, chances are there’s going to be a build-up of oils, dirt and bacteria on your face leading to pimples and breakouts. By cleansing your skin twice a day, you can give your skin the cleaning it needs to get rid of that build-up. Not only that, but you’ll be giving your skin the best chance at absorbing any other products you utilise on your face to help combat your oily skin. If you’re using a face serum, cleansing your skin will help the serum to be absorbed easier.


Exfoliate

We don’t mean you have to start scrubbing your face to scrub the dirt and oil off your face. Instead, we mean looking after your5 skin with a gentle product to exfoliate the skin and help your skin to feel more rejuvenated. When you have excess oil to deal with, your skin may have trouble shedding skin cells, causing them to build up on your face. By exfoliating the skin, you’re helping the natural process along. Use a gentle exfoliation product that won’t strip the skin or be too harsh.


Continue to moisturise

Some people say that you should avoid moisturisers when you have oily skin. But, the truth is, you should continue to use a moisturiser each day as a part of your daily skincare routine. Moisturising the skin won’t make it worse. Instead, opt for a moisturiser that has oily skin in mind. These products will generally feel a lot lighter on the skin and help your skin to feel moisturised without the oily feel.


Remove your make-up

We have all been too tired to remove make-up before heading to bed thinking “Oh well, my skin will be fine tomorrow”. But, have you then woken up the next day with skin that is oily and potentially with some breakouts? Whatever you do, always ensure you’re removing any make-up before going to sleep at night. It doesn’t take long and it helps your skin to feel refreshed and to be able to breathe as you sleep. You’ll thank yourself the next day when you’re not dealing with oily skin and blemishes!


Treat your skin

Every so often, you should treat your skin with a natural treatment mask to not only improve your skin but give yourself a little bit of extra self-care. When you want to feel that little bit special, a facial mask can help to hydrate the skin, exfoliate it and nourish it to feel even better. Giving yourself that little bit of extra time to take care of your skin may be just what you need to unwind and relax.


Oily skin doesn’t have to give you a headache. There are plenty of products on the market that are naturally derived and organic to help your skin feel and look great. Taking care of an oily complexion may take some time to understand what your skin needs, but with the right tools, you’ll combat oiliness in no time.
