Benefits of Oily Skin?
Oily skin has its benefits. It's true that oily skin can look greasy and cause acne, but it also comes with some major perks:
Oily skin tends to be younger-looking than dry or combination skin because it doesn't wrinkle as easily.
Oily skin doesn't get as dry as other types of complexions do, so you're less likely to need heavy moisturizers or creams on a daily basis (which may actually make your face worse).
- Easier makeup application--and removal.
Oily complexions are easier to cover up with foundation than drier ones because there's less chance of it sliding off during the day thanks to all that natural oil production happening underneath your makeup layer(s). And when you want to take off those layers at night? No problem! Just use a good cleanser--it'll come right off without much effort at all!
Solutions for Oily Skin
Topical solutions: If you have oily skin, it's important to use a moisturizer that contains an oil-free formula. This will help keep your skin from getting too greasy and prevent breakouts.
Medications: There are many topical medications available for treating acne, including retinoids (like tretinoin), benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid creams or gels. You can also talk with your doctor about taking oral antibiotics if you have severe acne or cystic lesions on your face.
Home Remedies: If you prefer natural remedies over pharmaceuticals, try some of these tips:
Drink plenty of water every day (about eight glasses). This will help flush toxins out of the body through urination so they don't build up on the surface of your skin as much as they would otherwise do so if there weren't enough fluids being consumed daily by someone who had oily skin conditions like yours does now!
Eat more fruits and vegetables each day instead; these foods contain antioxidants which help fight free radicals produced by UV rays from sunlight exposure.
Wash your face twice a day.
Use oil-free products.
Don't touch your face, especially with dirty hands or makeup brushes! Not only does this cause breakouts, but it also spreads bacteria around the skin and makes oily skin worse.
Use blotting papers after applying makeup (or at any point throughout the day). These will soak up excess oils and keep you looking fresh even if you're sweating through an intense workout session or crying over a breakup--or both at once!
- Try clay masks on occasion; they help draw out impurities from deep within pores and reduce inflammation caused by acne breakouts. They also make an excellent spot treatment when applied directly onto problem areas before bedtime!
