Tips for Those with Oily Skin

Posted on: June 22nd, 2021

Many people wonder what causes someone to have oily skin. For most people, it really comes down to genetics and if this is the cause, you cannot really change that. Other causes include stress, hormonal fluctuations, weather and the skincare products/makeup you are using. Although having oil in your skin is an important part of keeping your skin healthy, when you have too much, it can lead to skin problems. But not to worry; if you suffer from oily skin, there are things that you can do!

The first step to combating oily skin is to use a very gentle foaming cleanser. When you consistently use a gentle cleanser in the morning and before bed, it works wonders to keep your oily skin in check. If you utilize products that contain harsh ingredients, it can actually cause your skin’s oil production to go into overdrive. Using a rough washcloth can do this as well. It is best to use either just your hands to cleanse your face, or a very gentle and soft washcloth.

If you have tried a gentle foaming cleanser consistently and find that you are still having problems with oily skin, the next step would be to find a skincare product that has one of the following acids: salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide or beta-hydroxy acid. These products are often labeled as acne products, but they also work really well for those with oily skin.

They also sell medicated cleaning pads that have salicylic acid or glycolic acid, which work very well to get oily skin under control. Another great product to try is cosmetic blotting papers. This product works by removing oil from your skin, without causing any dryness.

Getting routine facials is another great way to keep your oily skin under control. Although anyone can benefit from having routine facials, it is especially important for those suffering from oily skin. You can discuss with your skincare specialist exactly which type of facial will work best for your specific skin type.

There are also some great makeup tips that can help to keep your skin looking fresh and can keep the oil in it under control. Before you put on foundation, you can use a lightweight moisturizing matifying lotion that will absorb extra oil and keep it from mixing with your makeup. Throughout the day, in order to maintain that fresh look to your skin, you can use blotting papers or blotting powder to get rid of the shine caused by oil.

If you are wearing eye shadow, you will have better success if you first apply a dry eye primer or powder to your eyelids. This will help to keep the eyeshadow from clumping together. Staying hydrated is another great way to keep your skin under control. When you are hydrated, your skin does not make as much oil. Plus, staying hydrated has so many other health benefits.

If you are still unhappy with your skin, your best bet is to consult with a skincare professional. They will listen to your concerns and help you develop a skincare routine that will work best for your specific skin concerns and goals.

Understanding Which At-Home Beauty Trends are Right for You

Posted on: June 15th, 2021

So many people rely on the internet for information and especially in this day and age, doing things virtually has become increasingly popular. While there are many tips and tricks that you can obtain from the internet, you need to be careful when you are looking for at-home beauty treatments to use. Although there are many products out there that are completely safe and okay for at-home use, there are also products that can actually cause harm to your skin.

Some people find a beauty brand that they really like and try to utilize products just from that brand, but others like to pick and choose products from different companies. You need to be careful when you are combining different skincare products, because there are some skin types that are more sensitive than others, and certain combinations of beauty products can cause you to suffer from skin irritations. In rare cases, some people can actually suffer from a chemical reaction caused by the beauty products they are using. It is so important to consult with a skincare professional to find out which beauty products will work best for you and prevent you from purchasing something that will cause your skin harm.

At-home face masks are a popular beauty product, but there are some types of sheet face masks that the FDA has not regulated. If you purchase a mask that is not regulated, that may be because the mask contains harmful ingredients that can cause damage to your skin. It is important to pay attention to the beauty products you are purchasing and if you are unsure as to which are safe, consult with your skincare professional.

Charcoal is a very popular ingredient in the skincare industry, but charcoal peels can actually strip your skin of its normal cell growth and cause your face to become extra dry. When this happens, your face can actually become oilier since your skin is working harder to make up for the dryness that has occurred. There are many types of chemical peels that are safe to use, but this should only be done under the direction of a skincare professional.
Skincare professionals should really be consulted before starting anything new with your skincare routine and once you have consulted with one, you can have more confidence that you are not doing anything to cause harm to your skin.
