5th December 2013

Acne can be very damaging to our skin and can worsen overtime, if not treated or correctly managed. Oily skin can be the key culprit in the formation of our acne so it would be useful to discover ways in which we can prevent oily skin from forming any type of acne.

See the short clip below and find out some useful tips on how to prevent oily skin from emerging:

In this short video, we are introduced to Jess, who has found her oily skin extremely frustrating. She confirms that having oily skin is very common, but some people like herself battle with it more than others.

Here are a few tips suggested by her on how to obtain oily free skin:

Tip 1: Try to stay away from any type of ‘junk food’

Eating greasy foods will produce oily skin, clogging your pores and triggering acne breakouts. Try to resist temptation and stick to healthy ‘natural’ foods.

Tip 2: Drink at least two litres of water a day

Not only will drinking lots of water have a positive impact on your health in general but it will also have a positive effect on our skin.

Tip 3: Exercise regularly

Try to make some time for exercise during the week and stick to this routine as much as you can. This will help regulate the oil production in the skin, also helping to get the toxins and sweat out of our body.

Tip 4: Fight oil with oil

Apply oil to your face every night, as this will slow down the oil production of the skin stopping the skin from overproducing excess oil and trying to overcompensate.

Tip 5: Avoid alcohol-based products

Try to avoid any alcohol-based skin products as these can dry out the skin quicker causing the skin to overproduce oil, so it can rapidly rehydrate. It would be advisable to check the ingredients of your products before using them.

To conclude

If your acne is still troubling you despite following these useful tips and you would like to seek a permanent solution to fix your acne, then it would be advisable to start your acne treatment sessions straight away.
