Oily Skin Care Tips

Follow these oily skin care tips to keep away the shine

People with oily skin require a different skin care regimen than people with dry or combination skin. Oily skin care has its own set of requirements, as many products that can be used on other skin types do not work so well with oily skin, due to the fact that people with oily skin tend to breakout more easily and experience clogged pores. The first step in oily skin care is cleansing, morning and night. Choose a gel-based or soapy cleanser that will clean out pores and strip away excess oil. Neutrogena carries a line of products that are formulated for oily skin care. Next up is toner, which works to pick up any leftover dirt, oil and makeup. Simply swipe a cotton ball across your face after dipping into the toner.

Even people with oily skin need to use a light moisturizer, because oily skin can still experience dryness and flaking. Make sure to choose a moisturizer that is non-comedogenic and hypo-allergenic so that it will not clog pores. The next step in an oily skin care routine is to exfoliate one to two times a week, which helps get rid of dead skin cells and promotes cell turnover. Using a weekly mask is also recommended in order to clean out pores and tighten them, as many people with oil skin have larger pores. Finally, a good acne treatment should be part of any oily skin care routine, in order to prevent breakouts. Check out 10 Best Drugstore Acne Fighting Products for a list of recommended products.

Short but interesting and I read that people with oily skin will get less wrinkles and show less signs of aging thanks to the natural oils, so there is a bright side.
