Knowing what not to do can be just as important as knowing how to properly care for your oily skin.
Don’t use creamy or milk cleansers.
Creamy or milk Cleansers deposit unnecessary lipids — oils — on the skin, which can make you feel even oilier. Better to stick with salicylic acid or glycolic cleansers, or gentle liquid cleansers.
Even better than searching for the perfect oil-free moisturizer is ditching this step altogether. Instead, use a gel or serum with anti-aging ingredients..
Don’t rely on SPF powders.
Most sunscreens are formulated in oil preparations that feel and look greasy, so for people with oily skin, SPF (skin protection factor) powders are tempting. But they do not have enough SPF, even if it says so on the label. To get the SPF stated on the label, you’d need to use 15 times the amount of powder you would normally use.
Oily skin isn’t a hygiene problem, so extra cleansing isn’t the answer. If you wash too much, you can strip your face of the essential oils that serve as a barrier to a lot of irritants. This can cause your face to become red and raw. It’s better to wash twice a day and use blotting paper when you feel shiny throughout the day.
Look Good. Feel Great !!
