Today, we are going to focus on oily skin.
Now oily skin is something that many women deal with on a daily basis. If you have oily skin, you may have enlarged pores, a dull, shiny or thick complexion or blackheads, pimples and other blemishes.
Oiliness can change but that’s dependent on the time of year or the weather. Things such as humidity, stress or hormonal imbalances can make oily skin worse.
Here are five things you can do to control/manage oily skin:
1) Cleanse, tone and moisturise: these three things are so important if you want good skin, especially when managing oily skin. Toning can minimise pores and clear away excess dirt, leaving you with a smooth and glowing complexion.
2) Water, water, water: if you want amazing skin, drink water. Drink as much water as you can. Water rectifies the over production of oil in the skin.
4) Eat clean: this is tricky (I find this challenging myself) but it’s so important to eat clean. There are so many articles that advise you on the right foods to eat for oily skin and also, which foods you should avoid. It is possible that you may be eating a particular food that is making your skin oily.
5) Use products for your skin type: one of the biggest faux pas some women make is that they use products that are not suitable for their skin type. Ensure your skincare products and cosmetics are oil free (with a matte/semi matte finish for foundations).
I hope this post has helped and feel free to share any tips you may have when it comes to stopping that shine!
