Now real struggle starts here. People having oily skin are very much aware of cloged pores and acne (nightmare for any girl). Some are still struggling that how they can keep their skin fresh and glowing.
I am listing some basic steps which you should be doing daily and weekly so that your oily skin gets all the nourishment that it needs.
Oily and Acne prone skin people should always look for products that say “non-comedogenic”,”alcohol-free”, “oil-free” and “won’t clog pores”.
Step 1. Cleanse twice a day
Cleanse your skin twice a day i.e morning and bed-time with a gel based or foam cleanser which are specifically for oily skin because it will help you to get rid of excess oil and dirt without leaving your skin very dry.
Step 2. Use a toner
Generally, we skip using toner because we aren’t aware of it’s benefits. It helps you to get rid of extra impurities that are still lingering on your skin and cleans out the clogged pores. So I personally never skip this step. You just need to hydrate a cotton ball/pad and swipe it over your face especially oily areas that are T-zone, forehead, nose, around the nose and chin and you can feel the difference.
Step 3. Moisturize
Be it any skin type, moisturizing your skin is very important. Its just you should look for the right product for the right skin type. For oily skin, always use a light moisturizer otherwise you’re skin will look more oily by the end of the day. Pick a gel based moisturizer or a light serum.
~ Scrub once or twice a week
This step should be done after cleansing your face but only once or twice a week. Scrubbing/Exfoliating your skin helps to get rid of the dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin. But try to avoid too much scrubbing because it will make your skin irritated, red or even sensitive that may lead to acne.
~ Apply Face Mask
This step should be followed after scrubbing. For oily skin, I would suggest you to prefer MUD MASK or CLAY MASK because they absorb excess oil which will help you to keep blackheads, whiteheads and acne at bay. I use Multani Mitti (Fullers Earth) face pack and results are quite satisfactory.
These are the few steps which you should include in your skin care regimen but if you’re still facing major skin problems then don’t delay to visit your dermatologist.
Hope it will help!! 🙂
