10 simple tips for your oily skin

If you have oily skin, you are prone to acne, blackheads and spots. Your skin probably looks greasy and thick. Just as with any skin type, maintaining certain routines can help reduce skin problems.

The following are 10 tips for taking care of oily skin.
• Wash your face 2x a day –morning and before bed only.
• Use a gentle cleanser.
• If you are experimenting with different cleansers, then it is better to keep track of how your skin looks after a few weeks using the new cleanser. If you notice irritation or allergies, then you better stop using it.
• Don’t scrub your face as this can stimulate oil production.
• If you use a toner, use it only on areas that are oily, such as your T-Zone.
• If you have oil builds up in between facial washings, use a medicated pad or blotting paper to remove excess oil.
• Oily skin still needs to be moisturized, but make sure you choose water based or oil-free moisturizers.
• When choosing foundation and other make-up, pick those with gel, liquid or powder bases. If using a liquid make-up, please make sure it is water based, not oil based.
• Exfoliate once a week to loosen and remove dirt and oil in your pores.
• Do not pick, pop or squeeze pimples as it can cause scarring and leave red spots on your face.
