How To Treat Oily Sensitive Skin

Learn how to treat oily sensitive skin with these helpful tips

Some people suffer from oily skin while others suffer from sensitive skin. However, there are also individuals that have oily sensitive skin, which can be a bit more challenging but is still treatable. Just like normal oily skin, oily sensitive skin is also prone to acne and breakouts. You want to avoid traditional acne products that contain retinols and irritating ingredients like salicylic acid. Instead, steer towards products that contain Vitamin B. Acne has been linked to Vitamin B deficiency, and when your body is lacking Vitamin B2, your skin will often be oilier. Read Foods For Acne for a list of foods that will help clear up and prevent breakouts.

Another thing you can do for your oily sensitive skin is drink plenty of water. Lack of moisture will cause an imbalance in the levels of oil in your body and skin, and even the slightest hint of dehydration can instantly boost sebum production in skin. Also avoid products with high levels of alcohol because they tend to dry out oily sensitive skin. Instead, go for moisturizers, cleaners and skin lotions that contain oatmeal, aloe vera and natural ingredients because they will soothe and absorb quickly. If you think there is more to your breakouts than meets the eye, check out How To Treat Rosacea-The Right Way for more information on how your period affects your skin on a daily basis.
