Suffering with oily skin? Dreading summer because your skin becomes greasier than ever and you have no idea how to solve this annoying problem? Look no further because we at Acne Skin Site are here to help you! Read below to learn some great tips and home remedies to minimize oily skin starting…NOW!
Use an Oil-Free Moisturizer After Cleansing, Day and Night:
Doing so will balance out the pH levels of your skin, minimizing oil from surfacing on the skin and also preventing new breakouts from occurring. It’s a myth that using moisturizer will make you more oily or cause new pimples to form – Just keep it oil-free and you’ll have less oily skin
Try a Homemade Face Mask!
Using a face mask 1-3 times a week after cleansing and before moisturizing will remove deeply embedded impurities from your pores, leaving you less oily and heal acne over time. Your skin will look more radian too. One we love is a raw egg and sugar face mask. Simply mix some of each together and apply on your face for about 10 minutes then rinse off with warm water, dry, and apply an oil-free moisturizer. Your skin will look and feel super refreshed and less oily!
Use Tinted Moisturizer as Your Foundation:
Tinted moisturizers are oil-free and can eliminate the heaviness of a full-coverage foundation being worn on your skin all day. Tinted moisturizers are light and will allow your skin the chance to breathe but still will even out your skin tone beautifully. Add a little dusting of translucent powder to minimize oil and keep your skin looking flawless.
Exfoliate 2-3 Times a Week:
It’s important to gently remove dead skin cells that trap pores with excess oil and acne-causing bacteria. Exfoliate by making your own organic brown sugar scrub. Simply mix brown sugar with water or extra virgin olive oil and massage the scrub onto your freshly cleansed skin with your fingertips in a circular motion for 2 minutes then rinse off with warm water. Heaven!
Carry Oil-Absorbing Sheets With You and Use As Needed:
Simply swipe a sheet and gently blot your face with it to absorb excess oil quickly and efficiently.
Use an Oil-Absorbing Pressed Powder w/Tea Tree Oil:
Pro makeup artist, Lindsay Tosto, recommends Urban Decay Cosmetics product called De-Slick. “It’s magic in pressed powder form. It will leave your skin soft, smooth, oil-free, and minimize pores. Your skin will look flawless.” Enough said.
Follow our tips and you are sure to have an awesome summer with beautiful skin that is less oily! Don’t forget to wear an oil-free moisturizer that contains SPF protection to minimize your chances of sun damage and skin cancer.
