There are many advantages of having an oily skin such as slow rate of skin ageing. But sometimes having an oily skin can be the pirate who robs you off your teenage happiness by pimples. In spite of having many positive effects, it often becomes important to tackle the issue of oiliness. In this article, we’ll be explaining the top 5 ways by which you can prevent an oily skin.
- Wash your face daily
Washing your face becomes very much important for a person with oily skin because oil acts as a magnet for dirt particles and unless you wash your face, these will remain and promote the oiliness of the skin. Also it will ensure that the oils don’t clog your pores.
- Face masks
You can make your skin less oily by applying Fullers earth to your skin. It acts wonders upon it and has been an old technique your grandma would tell you. It sucks up the oil from the pores and promotes the drying factor.
- Clay masks
This is particularly helpful if you’re suffering from acne and is the fastest solution also. Take equal amount of honey and green clay for making the mask. The honey retains the moisture in your skin. The paste of apple and honey is pretty helpful for the same purpose.
- Aloe Gel
This is undoubtedly one of the best solutions for oily skin, particularly helpful when you suffer from acne outbreaks. Apply the gel as many times as you wish. It’ll leave behind a soft and supple skin after draining all the oils.
- Lemon and Cucumber juice.
Lemon juice and cucumber juice are both known for their excellent properties they impart on skin. When mixed both of them and applied upon skin, it’ll greatly help you to tackle the oiliness of your skin.
As an advice, I’d suggest you to use only those cosmetics which aren’t oil based. You’ll find plenty of products that are water based. Guys should remember to shave carefully and choose the appropriate shaving gels (again, water based) or foams.
