What is oily skin?
Oily skin is the result of excess sebum produced by your body’s sebaceous glands. This leads the skin to seem shiny and feels greasy, particularly throughout the T-Zone (forehead, nose, and chin).
If you have oily skin, you may be more likely to have enlarged pores, expand acne blemishes and be more prone to acne breakouts.
Why does oily skin cause acne?
If you have oily skin, you are probably dealing with an acne problem. These annoying tiny creatures are the result of the excess oil on your skin. This oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria clog the follicles, and skin pores, and this can lead to acne problems on your skin.
It is important to know how to deal with your oily skin and prevent unpleasant pimples.
Acne treatments for oily skin
Having oily skin is due to the overproduction of sebum (oil) by the skin’s glands. As mentioned here, oily skin can clog skin open pores and lead to acne on your face or other parts of the body like the back and chest.
Here are some simple guidelines that can help you if you are dealing with oily skin and its challenges:
1-Wash your face with the right facial cleanser proper for oily skin twice a day (in the morning and night). Always refer to the product’s instructions provided by manufacturers.
2-Use proper toner after using the facial wash. The toners that contain alcohol tend to dry out the skin. Natural astringents, such as witch hazel can have skin-soothing properties. Make sure that test out any new toner on a small patch of your skin to avoid potential irritation.
3-Use medicated pads (blotting papers) which can be used to lift excess oil off the skin throughout the day to make it appear less shiny but it will not treat the oil production.
4- Exfoliate your face two times a week. Just be careful not to over-exfoliate, because that can damage the skin and even cause your skin to produce more oil! Always consult with your aesthetician to choose the best treatment suit for your skin condition.
5- Use the facial masks designed for oily skins. Masks with natural ingredients such as honey, green tea, or oatmeal could help you to control the oil on your skin. It is recommended to use a proper mask 2 -3 times a week.
Do not use harsh chemicals and products without consulting with a skin and beauty expert or a medical doctor.
6-Use an oil-free moisturizer designed for oily skins, two times a day (in the morning and night) to hydrate your skin. Sometimes aloe Vera could be a good choice for treating acne and oily skin.
7- Use oil-free makeup products that do not clog pores and always do not forget to remove your make-up before going to bed.
8- Always use sunscreen. You should protect your skin against the harmful sun UV radiations to prevent aging and pigmentation. Use oil-free and reliable sunscreen products with a proper protection grade (SPF).
