Oily skin may present its challenges, but once you set up a good skincare regime, it’s quite easy to control and keep at bay. According to Live Strong, oily skin, or seborrhea, is caused by overactive sebaceous glands, a condition that can be driven or exacerbated by hormones. Women with oily skin may see increased acne breakouts during their menstrual periods. Proper skin care is essential for minimizing the appearance of pimples, blackheads and large pores. Fortunately, keeping your skin clean and clear doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or take a lot of time.
- Wash your face twice a day with a gentle, oil-free cleanser. Lather the cleanser in your hands, massage it onto your face with your fingertips and rinse it off by splashing your skin with warm water. If you have acne, look for a cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to help dry up blemishes.
- Tone your skin with astringent after washing your face. Medicated astringents can help clear breakouts. For a natural, inexpensive toner, try witch hazel or fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Apply toner with a soft cotton ball or use premoistened pads.
- Apply a mattifying gel or oil-control moisturizer. If you wear makeup, apply the gel before your foundation.
- Exfoliate once or twice a week to remove the dirt and dead skin cells that can clog your pores.
