Oily skin related outbreaks can cause quite the stir. Most of us can relate to them and try many remedies to get rid of them. But can we really? Who knows. But there are ways to help reduce and control the excess oil on your skin and we’re telling you just that!
So let’s see what the 5 major DON’Ts of oily skin are. Let’s begin!
1. Cleansing Too Often
With oily skin, cleansing too often can cause redness, inflammation and acne breakouts. This happens as cleansing too much breaks down the skin’s protective barrier. Hence, to protect it and to prevent its consequences, it’s important to tone down the cleansing to once or twice a week.
2. Using Too Much Soap
In nature, soaps are alkaline. Too much can cause an imbalance in the normal acid-alkaline (pH) balance of the skin, leaving your skin prone to pimples and acne.
3. Touching Your Face
Our hands have all sorts of germs and bacteria. Touching the face could pollute our skin, leading to all sorts of skin issues such as rashes, redness and in the long run, acne. If you already have acne, it can worsen if you touch or squeeze the pimples you have, leading to blemishes and more acne in the long run.
4. Using Harsh Skincare Products
Using products with high content of strong chemicals leads to the skin ‘over-drying’. This in turn will harm the skin’s layer and strips it off its natural oils. This, in return causes more production of oil/excess oil, leading to a more oilier skin than you had before. So, cut out these products now!
5. Missing The Moisturizer!
Yep, that’s right, moisturizing your skin is important despite having oily skin. It helps keep it hydrated. Try using an alcohol free, water free or an oil free moisturizer for a healthy skin and the fine finish you’re looking for!
