Your biggest skin challenges: suppressing oil and acne
Oily skin can make you prone to pimples, large pores and a slick mid-day complexion. Here's the best way to care for your skin and battle the grease:
Step 1. Cleanse
Find a cleanser spiked with salicylic acid to control oil production and prevent the development of blemishes. If you opt to use toner, consider using a witch hazel-based product instead of one that contains alcohol, which makes your skin think it's dry and triggers oil production.
Step 2. Moisturize
Look for an oil-free daily lotion (not a heavier cream) that contains sunscreen. To limit the chemicals you put on your skin, switch to an SPF-free lotion at night. Note: On hot, humid days, it's OK to skip moisturizer but don't forget to put on sunscreen.
Step 3. Fight fine lines/wrinkles
Try using a serum that contains vitamin C. It'll help fight free radical damage without aggravating acne.
Step 4. Pamper your eye area
Test a few brands and zero in on a lightweight anti-aging eye product -- anything too heavy or creamy will cause makeup to run. Find a product that contains vitamin C, which helps correct sun damage.
