Skin care for oily skin

Cleanse at least twice a day with a mild cleanser to help prevent oil from clogging the pores. Cleansers that contain salicylic acid will help to exfoliate pores and reduce greasy build up. Don’t wash your face more than twice a day as over cleansing can stimulate your oil glands to pump out even more excess oil. Cleanse gently with your fingers or a washcloth and be gentle on your skin. Don’t scrub hard. Use a toner daily to remove excess oil but don’t use an alcohol based product. If you strip too much oil from your face the skin will over compensate and produce even more oil. Use the toner once a day preferably in the morning after cleansing your face.

Do you need to moisturize or not? If your skin is oily then moisturizing may not be necessary on a daily basis. However if your face feels tight after washing then apply a light oil free moisturizer. In choosing the right make up, you need to use oil-free especially in foundation and blush. Make up that is water based and non comedogenic that wont clog pores is the right choice. You can use a translucent powder instead of a liquid foundation that is formulated to soak oil while providing coverage. Lastly you have to drink plenty of water to cleanse your system and keep you hydrated.
