Skin Care for Oily Skin

Sunday, 09 August 2009

skin care for oily skinElegance and beauty of the woman are highlighted not only by the fashionable clothes she wears but also by her beautiful skin. Beautiful and groomed appearance is the primary asset of any woman. That oily shine that shows on the surface of the skin of a particular type is a very unpleasant thing. To avoid this, women with oily skin have to take proper care of their skin. Oily skin type is characterized by the excessive production of oil by skin sebaceous glands.

In addition to unsightly oily shine that appears in just a few hours after the cleansing and application of moisturizing cream, women with oily skin type have enlarged pores. Moreover, oily skin is prone to blackheads and other blemishes, though it has at least one advantage - oil skin is less susceptible to aging than dry skin.

Skin care routine for oily skin is based on the regulation of production of skin oil by sebaceous glands. The aim here is to make them produce only the amount of oil necessary for the skin, and not more. Skin care regimen for oily skin type is not different from the usual skin care routine, as it includes cleansing, toning and moisturizing in the morning and in the evening, and application of nourishing and pore tightening mask every two - three days. Many women erroneously believe that oily skin does not require regular nourishment and moisturization. In fact, oily skin needs daily moisturizing and regular nourishment.

Skin care for oily skin: rule #1

Love your skin as it is and choose proper products for delicate skin care. Some ladies, when trying to remove excess oil from the skin, wipe it off with alcohol and other highly aggressive products that have a degreasing effect and are rough on the skin. In fact, the use of aggressive skin care products stimulates intense production of oil by sebaceous gland. As a result, the oiliness of skin increases. It is a vicious circle, which can be broken only by finding proper gentle care.

Skin care for oily skin: rule #2

Skin care should be regular. The sebaceous glands produce skin oil continuously, and there is no skin care product that could prevent them from doing so, therefore the key to perfect skin is regular cleansing and removal of excess oil. Taking proper care of oily skin is not easy, as in addition to morning and evening cleansing it requires at least one - two additional procedures during the day. We highly recommend to buy cleansers specifically targeted for oily skin that can be applied directly on the makeup, and powder formulated for oily skin. The latest achievement in the cosmetic industry which is powder with unique molecules that absorb excess oil can keep skin fresh and clean for 4-6 hours. It means that you can apply this powder in the middle of the day, and your skin will remain perfect until you remove it in the evening.

Skin care for oily skin: rule #3

Your physical appearance reflects your health condition, and if you have oily skin you should consider changing your diet, with emphasis on protein-rich food, and reduce consumption of carbohydrates and fats. Using less salt and spice in cooking is also advisable. Your endocrine profile and hormonal changes as well as stress and medication also affect skin condition and can contribute to oiliness.

Women with oily skin should carefully read the labels of skin care products to know their formula. Ideally, they should use water-based products with herbals extracts. Usage of alcohol- and oil-containing products, on the other hand, is not recommended. 

Home skin care for oily skin can includes different procedures: steam baths, application of home-made masks and scrubs, cold and hot packs and wiping. Medicinal herbs and conventional food are well suitable for the preparation of home-made skin care remedies.

You can take steam baths for oily skin with parsley, marjoram and chamomile flowers. After the steam procedures are over, it is recommended to apply a soothing mask or home-made facial scrub. For instance, you can take (100 ml) kefir and oat flakes (2 tablespoons), mix, and leave for about five minutes before the flakes turn into porridge, and apply on the face for 10 - 15 minutes, then wash with warm water.

A commonplace cucumber is a perfect skin care product when finely grated and applied on the skin. Also, you can moisten gauze swab with the cucumber juice and wipe your face. You can freeze the juice of cucumber and later cleanse your face with these frozen cucumber juice cubes.

Sandi  - Makeup and Powder to Stop Oily Skin   |2010-01-28 19:12:53
Having to deal with insanely oily skin myself, I have a couple of notes to add that might help people out. First, if you're looking for a good foundation makeup for oily skin, try Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Foundation (at department stores for around $28). It stays put on oily skin, feels feather light & covers any imperfection in its tracks. Also, try Mattify Loose Powder. This is a transparent loose powder for oily skin that soaks up oil for 4-6 hours. You can wear it both under and over foundation to sop up oil and prevent oil from clogging pores. It's so transparent that even men with oily skin can use it, because it buffs right in to the skin.
Hope these tips help some fellow readers. Thanks again for the great article!
