You are certainly not alone in your private struggle with oily skin, especially on your face, that always seems to be there during the day. It feels (and, frankly, looks) unattractive to walk around with an oily shiny face all day. Perhaps you’ve been attempting to hide the problem by wearing lots of extra makeup. It is even worse to wipe it away with whatever is close by (especially if that is your hand). Just so you know, you shouldn’t ever use your hand to wipe your face unless you are out of other options. Not only does this make your face dirtier it makes it oilier because you aren’t wiping away oil, you’re wiping on oil (you have oil on your hands too)! What you need to do is learn what you can about your skin and how to properly care for it and the few tips that we are going to teach you.
If you’d like a long term solution to overactive oil glands, one thing you should try (which will sound weird) is using moisturizer regularly (and correctly). Before you go to bed each night (every night), take off your makeup, wash your face in a good cleanser and put on a small dab of moisturizer. Choose the best products for your actual skin type. As a footnote, the best products for you does not mean the most expensive, either. Lots of natural astringents are affordable and, if you like, you an even make your own for not a lot of money. Believe it or not, but cold (pure) water is a very good natural astringent. You already know how important it is to take off your makeup and wash your face before you go to bed. If you have ever overlooked this then basically what you have been doing is building a foundation for an oily skin problem. It is vital for your face that you take off every scrap of makeup at the end of your day. Taking it off when you get home from work is a good way to remember to do this. It is important to use a good makeup remover no matter when you decide to do this. Then wash your face with something appropriate and apply a very light amount of skin moisturizer.
If you regularly wear foundation, use healthy foundation if you want to reduce the risk of developing a shiny face. Foundation can also be used to protect your skin against the effects of the rest of your makeup. You can also reapply it during the day in the spots where you most often develop an oily shine. Once you begin making positive changes in your skin care routine, it will take just a little while to see profound improvements with the oily shine at work problem. But the amount of time is not excessive, and you’ll be impressed with your progress. About the Author
