Oily Skin Care

Oily Skin Care



Oily skin care
To start the​ discussion on​ oily skin care,​ it’s imperative to​ first understand the​ cause behind oily skin . ​
Put simply,​ oily skin is​ a​ result of​ excessive production of​ sebum an​ oily substance that is​ naturally produced by skin . ​
as​ is​ known to​ everyone,​ excess of​ everything is​ bad; so excessive sebum is​ bad too . ​
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 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 . ​
However,​ not all cleansers will work . ​
you​ need a​ cleanser which contains salicylic acid i . ​
e . ​
a​ betahydroxy acid that retards the​ rate of​ sebum production . ​
Cleansing should be done twice a​ day and​ even more in​ hot and​ humid conditions . ​

Most of​ the​ oily skin care products are oilfree; however,​ it​ is​ always good to​ check the​ ingredients of​ the​ product,​ before you​ actually 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 care’ is​ also dependent on​ the​ degree of​ oiliness,​ if​ you​ aren’t too oily,​ so some of​ these ‘suitable for​ all’ type of​ products might be work for​ you​ too . ​
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 . ​
However,​ excessive toning can harm your skin . ​

The next step in​ your oily skin care routine can be a​ mild moisturiser . ​
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​ moisturiser,​ be sure to​ use one that is​ oilfree,​ waxfree and​ lipidfree . ​

You could also use a​ clay mask say once a​ week as​ an​ oily skin care measure . ​

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​ really suitable for​ your skin . ​

In case these measures don’t 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 . ​
