Tips for Caring for Oily Skin

by Kevin Smith Author

If you have oily skin, you may be struggling with home care tips that will actually reduce or eliminate breakouts. Keeping the skin clean is very important for eliminating excess oil. To accomplish this, skin should be cleaned two to three times per day, to clean oil and dirt from the pores. Consider facial cleaners that are free of oil. Using a medicated soap may also work well. Products containing honey, neem, tea tree oil, turmeric, or salicylic acid are highly recommended. To explore treatment options, visit a center for skin cosmetic dermatology in San Diego, CA. Here are some tips to caring for oily skin.

Gentle Exfoliation

Exfoliation is important, but if you have oily skin, then it’s important that you do not overdo it. Ideally, look to exfoliate once, maybe twice per week, maximum. Also, when you exfoliate, you don’t want to use harsh techniques or be hard on your skin. Opt for gentle exfoliation means. When your skin produces too much sebum oil, this can cause an overproduction of dead skin cells sitting on top of the skin, which can lead to blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and acne in general. Exfoliation allows for you to rejuvenate your surface-level of skin to remove these dead skin cells and dirt, causing your skin to look more alive.

Utilize Face Masks

Once per week, use a nice oil-controlling face mask. It’s important that you use your face mask after your exfoliation session. Face masks containing Bentonite clay and Kaolin, or Sandalwood work very well. You can also mix your own using such ingredients as:

·         Oatmeal and honey

·         Egg whites and the juice from a lemon

·         Ground almonds and honey

·         Aloe Vera

·         Tomato and Sugar

Papaya and Lemon, then Apple and Honey

Another good option is mixing papaya with lemon. Take half of a lemon and mix the juice with a papaya by mashing them together. Apply, then let it sit for fifteen to twenty minutes. Now, use cold water to rinse it off. This works as a great oil control.

Next, peel and slice up an apple, now blend this together nicely with approximately two tablespoons of honey, until the paste is smooth. Apply and let it sit for fifteen to twenty minutes. Now, rinse with warm water. This will provide a natural hydration, control oily-shine, and seal the pores.
