Treatment tips for oily skin

5th October 2012  : 

Oily skin is a common problem among men and women alike - but how can you prevent it from occurring in the first place?

There are various tried and tested skin treatments that can leave your skin feeling fresh and oil-free. Some of them might be easier to achieve than you think.

Cleansing your skin on a daily basis is a great way to remove any excess oil. There are products available that are specifically designed for oily skin, so make sure you read the label carefully before making a selection.

Avoiding alcohol-based cleaners is a good idea if you are prone to oily skin. They might make your skin feel more comfortable for a short time, but they tend to lead to a greater build-up of oil in the long run.

Applying a face mask is a great way to treat your skin, especially if you suffer from extreme conditions such as oiliness. As with cleansers, make sure you read the label to check that the product is suitable for your particular skin type, otherwise you could make the problem worse.

When applying makeup, ensure that your skin is still able to breathe underneath. Clogging up the pores of your skin will only make the oiliness worse and could even lead to an outbreak of spots. Some makeup is specially designed for oily skin, so ask a sales consultant the next time you set out to buy a new foundation to see if it is appropriate for your needs.

Drinking plenty of water is crucial for healthy skin, no matter what condition it might be in. Water helps to flush toxins out of the body and keep you hydrated - so whether you have acne, dry or oily skin, boosting your intake can have a positive impact.
