5 Simple Ways to Get Rid of Oily Skin.
Oily skin is a very common problem and also one which can lead to many other skin related issues as well. Blackheads, whiteheads, acne and a messy look – oily skin can do all these and more. Whether it’s your genetics, your hormonal changes, daily activities or weather conditions, oily skin is not something welcomed by most people. But there’s always some god news. And oily skin can easily be avoided by a 5 Simple Ways to Get Rid of Oily Skin.
1) Get a good cleanser
Make sure your cleanser is free from alcohol and harsh chemicals. Many recommend oil based cleansers and believe in “fighting oil with oil”. Get a gentle skin moisturising cleanser that won’t strip away the skins natural oil – making your skin quicken its oil production. Cleansing helps get rid of all the unwanted bacteria and dirt which your body might try to eliminate by increasing its oil production. Keep your skin clean and moisturised to minimise oil production.
Try Baimeni’s Sweet Australian Almond Oil Cleanser which provides a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins to help improve tone and appearance. Almond oil has fatty acids that dissolve sebum (acne/pimple causing oil) and impurities that cause acne and pimples. It also cleanses the skin pores and repairs damage to the skin, so can prevent occurrence of acne and pimples.
An excellent mask to use a few times a week or daily cleanser is Baimeni’s Nourishing Honey Face Cleanser and Mask. Opt for Baimen’s raw, cold extracted, unblended honey. Its’ natural, antibacterial and probiotics effectively reduce breakouts and prevent new acne. Baimeni’s Nourishing Honey Face Cleanser and Mask nurtures, nourishes and rejuvenates skin for a healthier, glowing complexion.
2) Get into a good cleansing routine
People often complain about oily skin and do not bother to take proper care of their skin and clean it properly and regularly. The body is continuously producing oil and you need to make sure that only the excess oil is removed frequently. Do wash your skin morning and night with gentle cleansers. Also follow with a natural, gentle toner that does not strip the skin of its natural oils, but rather cleanses it and brings it back to pH balance. This includes using products with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide unless prescribed by your physician.
Baimeni’s Illuminating Apple Cider Vinegar and Aloe Vera Toner is a nutrient rich solution for addressing age spots and acne, tightening and minimising pores and replenishing moisture essential for healthy skin. For oily and acne-prone skin, the Apple Cider Vinegar and Aloe Vera Toner helps to treat acne and reduce redness.
3) Never forget hydration
Not only do you need to keep your skin moisturised externally, but you also need to keep your water intake levels in check to hydrate your body enough. Dehydration has been proven to encourage the glands in producing more oils in an attempt to hydrate your skin. Also, use a light moisturiser, preferably with hyaluronic acid to avoid the clogging of pores. A must have is Baimeni’s Hydrating Eye & Face Serum with Hyaluronic Acid. For oily skin, try this after cleansing and toning as your daily moisturiser. The serum will leave your skin feeling soft and looking matte, not greasy.
4) Do not steam
Many use steaming as a part of their facial routine and to help remove dirt from pores. However, the high temperatures your skin faces when during steaming can actually strip away all the natural oils and fatty acids your skin produces to help protect itself. This is why people should also avoid going into heated pools, Jacuzzi’s and taking very hot showers regularly.
5) Pay attention to your makeup products
Avoid all sorts of pore-clogging ingredients and makeup products. No matter what you opt for, you need to make sure that you remove all traces of makeup before you go to bed so that your skin can easily repair itself and breathe.
