6 Things that every woman with oily skin needs to know!

Your makeup is messed up extremely fast because of your oily skin? You hate taking pictures with other people because your face always glows too much? You are trying to fight your oily skin issues but it is not going well? Do not worry, many encounter these problems and there are various things to keep it all balanced! What do you need to know about your oily skin?!


1. Your hormones are quite responsible.

Your menstrual cycles, which fluctuate from week to week, can boost glands in the skin, including the scalp. So some day during the cycle, your skin and hair are going to be greasier than usual.

2. It can be related to genetics.

Number of glands and their activity are very complex matter and differ from person to person. This means that you are by default going to have your skin  oily and you will have more or less the gland. You have absolutely no influence over that.

3. Skin cleansing is the most important thing for you.

Failing to properly clean your face, or if you remove excess fat or remove too much, your skin will be inflamed and irritated, leading to increased secretion of sebum. In fact, if you clean it too much, it can destroy its protective barrier which will lead to increased skin with even more oil. Wash your skin twice a day with a gentle cleanser that will remove oil, but not the natural barrier of the skin.


4. You must be careful with the treatment of pimples and acne.

Dermatologists believe that it is best to use a 2 percent salicylic acid than the more aggressive treatments because it is not good if it leaves your skin completely dry.

5. Your make-up can worsen your skin condition.

Using lighter formula will allow the skin to breathe, to avoid additional manufacturing fat. Use liquid powders without oil, water-based, try mineral makeup that will not clog pores and always use loose powder – this is your best ally.

6. Retinoids can help.

At night, apply the cream with retinoids (eg. Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer) that will help reduce the greasiness of the skin.
