Oily skin too needs moisturizers

People with oily skin will love the amount of products available for oily skin in the market. However though you may spend money for these products, you will not know if you are actually taking the proper care of your skin.

So to help you out, here is a list of things you should do on a daily and weekly basis to ensure your oily skin gets the care it requires.

Daily skin care
Make it a point to use a gel based or ‘soapy’ cleanser to cleanse your face every morning and night. Use cleansers specifically meant for oily skin as it cleans out pores and strips away excess oil. It’s better if you cleanse your face immediately after sweating like after gym or a workout. However don’t over-cleanse as too much cleansing irritates your skin.
While many people with oily skin think they don’t need to use a moisturizer, they are wrong. Oily skin needs moisturizing, use something light like a serum to provide your skin with the moisture it requires. Just look for products like moisturizers, makeup and sunscreen which is oil-free and water based.
A toner proves helpful at picking up left over dirt, oil and cleanser. All you need to do is apply some toner onto a cotton ball and wipe over your face while paying special attention to the areas you may forget like crevices around the nose.
Weekly skin care

Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to get rid of dead skin cells to encourage quicker surface healthy skin. However if your skin is acne prone, you need to be careful as exfoliation can trigger more breakouts.

Wear a weekly mask to clean out and tighten your pores. As people with oily skin generally complain of large pore size, routinely wearing a weekly mask makes a great difference to your skin. Clay masks are better for those with oily skin.

Additional oily skin care tips

Astringents help control oil and some containing salicylic acid helps clear breakouts. Apply the astringent using a cotton ball or pad after and in between cleansings.

If you are prone to frequent acne breakouts, use acne treatments once a day on a continual basis to combat acne and keep it at bay. This helps as many a time, acne starts well before you see it.

While those with oily skin tend to scrub at their skin thinking it clears acne and reduces oiliness, they are wrong. Scrubbing in no way makes your skin less oily or improve acne; on the contrary, it irritates your skin.

Practice using these skin care tips for oily skin. You are sure to find a marked difference and improvement in your skin texture after some time.
