ANTI -AGING SKIN CARE
The Facts about Oily Skin Care
“To start the discussion on oily skin care, it is imperative to first understand the cause behind oily skin.” (“Skin Care Tips”) “Put simply, oily skin is a result of excessive production of sebum (an oily substance that is naturally produced by skin).” (“The facts about Oily skin care – TranDesign, Inc.”)
“As is known to everyone, excess of everything is bad; so excessive sebum is bad too.” (“The facts about Oily skin care”) It leads to clogging of skin pores, resulting in accumulation of dead cells and hence formation of pimples/acne. Moreover, oily skin spoils your looks too.
“So, ‘oily skin care’ is as important as the ‘skin care’ for other types of skin.” (“The facts about Oily skin care – Skin Care Shop”)
The basic aim of ‘oily skin care’ is the removal of excessive sebum or oil from the skin. However, oily skin care procedures should not lead to complete removal of oil. ‘Oily skin care’ starts with the use of a cleanser. (“The Facts About Oily Skin Care – Biotulin Anti-Aging Creme”)
However, not all cleansers will work. You need a cleanser which contains salicylic acid i.e., a beta-hydroxy acid that retards the rate of sebum production. “Cleansing should be done twice a day (and even more in hot and humid conditions).” (“Oily Skin – The Right Skin Care Approach – Health and …”)
Most of the oily skin care products are oil-free; however, it is always good to check the ingredients of the product, before you buy it. This is especially important if a product is marked as ‘suitable for all skin types,’ instead of ‘oily skin care product.’ (“Oily Skin – The Right Skin Care Approach – Health and …”)
“‘Oily skin care’ is also dependent on the degree of oiliness, if you are not too oily, so some of these ‘suitable for all’- type of products might be work for you too.” (“Facts About Oily Skin Care”)
For extremely oily skin, only oily skin care products are suitable. Your oily skin care routine can include an alcohol-based toner (for an extremely oily skin). This can be the second step in your oily skin care routine i.e., just after cleansing. (“The facts about Oily skin care – Tran Design, Inc.”) However, excessive toning can harm your skin.
“The next step in your oily skin care routine can be a mild moisturizer.” (“Oily Skin – The Right Skin Care Approach – Health and …”) Again, the degree of oiliness of your skin will determine whether you need to include this in your oily skin care routine. If you do decide to include a moisturizer, be sure to use one that is oil-free, wax-free, and lipid-free.
“You could also use a clay mask (say once a week) as an oily skin care measure.” (“The Facts About Oily Skin Care – Biotulin Anti-Aging Creme”)
As far as the oily skin care products go, you might need to try out a few before you arrive at the one that is suitable for your skin
In case these measures do not give you the desired result, consult a good dermatologist for advice. He could prescribe stronger oily skin care products like vitamin A creams, retinoids, Sulphur creams etc., which can help counter the problems of oily skin.
