Taking care of oily skin is not easy, though … I think it’s easy. And if you also know how to do it correctly, then caring for your “skin” will seem to you a pleasant experience.
Determine the fatty type of skin at home is not difficult. I propose to undergo a small test to determine the type of skin: it is necessary to rinse the face skin abundantly in normal running water, then soap your face with usual soap, without using foams or gels for washing, soap, I repeat, it should be ordinary, for example, baby. We wash off soap foam and thoroughly wipe the face with a towel. After washing, do not use any skin care products. Leave her breathing. We wait for 2-3 hours and start testing. We take a paper napkin and apply it to any area of the skin of the face. Instead of a napkin, you can take papyrus paper, ordinary glass or a small mirror. The main thing is for you to conveniently put all this to the person. Now we look, if on тес-subject there were oily stains, Then you should know – your skin is of a fat type. If the spots do not remain, the skin, most likely dry or normal.
Oily skin of the face has increased greasiness. Because of insufficient blood supply in the skin cells, it has blocked pores and excessive fatty shine. Such skin very often looks dirty and inflamed. It is often exposed to rashes and the appearance of black dots. But do not be upset and even more afraid of this. Skin fat type has a very significant plus – it ages much later than other types of skin. And if you take care of her properly, then your fat type of skin can also be rejoiced.
I like most female representatives, have a mixed (combination type) skin. My T-zone faces, or rather sites – the forehead, nose and chin have the properties of treacherously impersonating themselves with a greasy shine.
Correct and full-fledged care for oily skin begins with a correct and thorough cleansing. Oily skin of the face requires more frequent cleansing than other types of skin. Many women, cleansing such a skin, make a rather gross mistake, using strong cleansing agents for purification, for example, on the basis of pure alcohol. But this is wrong, I will explain why. Fatty skin does not need to be degreased with alcohol, since the use of strong cleansing agents leads to the fact that the skin after such means begins to intensively restore the lack of fat and produce even more sebum. Therefore, you have to resort to skin cleansing very often, removing greasy shine.
Therefore, instead of alcohol lotions, it is better to wash 2 times a day and apply a gentle cleansing agent-gels or foams for washing.
Fatty skin is also not recommended to wash away with hot water, because the high temperature of the water also contributes to the intensive release of fat. It is advisable to use water at room temperature or slightly cooler. In addition, cool water helps to narrow the pores and excellently invigorates and tones.
As a means for washing oily skin, it is necessary to use special drugs that increase immunity to various infections and normalize the activity of the sebaceous glands. The usual toilet soap only dries the skin and leaves a touch. Means for oily skin should dissolve well in water. If you apply special gels or foams for oily skin, they should not contain alkali and have a pH of no higher than 4.5, as they should include antibacterial components and essential oils of tea tree, lemon or basil.
I’ve tried quite a few different such remedies, I can not say that all of them suited me perfectly, but here everything also depends on the skin condition. After all, the skin, she, like her hair, though the color and the touch is the same, but the approach to everything needs an individual. So everything in our life needs to be tried and tested personally. There’s really a couple of tools that I use from time to time. But usually in the morning I wash with natural remedies, and I do them myself. In fact, there are many recipes for natural remedies, I use the most affordable ones that are easy and quick to prepare.
For example, to wash my fat T-zone, washing with sour milk helps me very well, sometimes I use kefir or curdled milk instead. Plentifully wet a cotton pad or swab with any selected product and wipe the skin of the face in the direction of the massage lines, paying special attention to places in the forehead, nose and chin. Then I wash off all with warm water. This washing besides fine cleansing gives also an additional effect-it whitens the skin, so that those who have pigment spots or freckles on their face, this method of purification is just the way. Frequent washing with sour milk will make the skin prone to pigmentation spots much lighter and cleaner.
The next remedy, which is constantly in my arsenal and always stands on my shelf in the bathroom, is ground coffee and salt. With the help of these ordinary and all available products, I wash my face. Recently, to this procedure, please do not be surprised, my husband is addicted. Repeating for me once washing procedure with this very means, I was pleased, says that the black dots on his face began to disappear in a notable manner. So, mix half a teaspoon of salt and the same amount of coffee with each other and apply this mixture to a face soaked with water. Lightly massage for 1 minute and rinse with warm water. Everything is ingeniously simple, and the result, as they say, on the face. Salt and coffee in their combination really have a drying effect and perfectly clean the clogged pores.
Peeling for oily skin is needed at least 2-3 times a week. With the help of this cosmetic procedure, the facial skin is cleansed of accumulated dirt in the pores, fatty acids, excess sebum. Peeling is also a prevention against skin diseases, the appearance and inflammation of acne. Doing peeling is best after washing and in the evening, or rather at night, so you will give the skin time to calm down, because any peeling for any skin is a little stress for it.
Clay Scrub Mask
Clay, as is known, contributes to the intensive absorption of sebum together with dirt and dead cells, in addition, it purifies and tightens the pores of the face, and also tightens the skin. For oily skin, dark brown or black clay is ideal. I sometimes just mix two varieties of these clays. I take 1 tbsp each. Different clay and mix it with boiled water. Water should be added so much to get a creamy consistency. Then evenly and a thick layer I put the received gruel on the face. I hold until the clay dries completely. Then I wash it off with warm water, but at the same time intensively I do massage movements on the face.
A scrub is prepared from brown sugar. 2 tablespoons Sugar is mixed with 3 tablespoons. Of chilled milk. We put the mass on the face and lightly massage the skin for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse with water.
There is another recipe for scrub, with the use of granulated sugar. Sugar can be taken ordinary. To begin with, we soap the skin of the face with usual baby soap, it is good if it includes herbs. As soon as there is a lot of soapy foam on your face, we take sugar and put it on your face. We rub the face with sugar and foam. Then carefully wash and damp the face with a soft towel.
Lemon Salt Scrub
The same parts of sea salt and freshly squeezed lemon juice are mixed together and we rub the face with the scrub for 1-2 minutes with massage movements, paying special attention to the most problematic areas of the skin. With a lot of inflamed skin, this scrub is not recommended.
Scrub for oily skin of the face with dilated pores
For oily skin with dilated pores, cosmetologists advise using green clay. For its preparation 2 tablespoons are taken. Green clay and 3 tbsp. L. Low-fat yogurt without additives. Yogurt can be replaced with yogurt or unsweetened acidophilic product. Mix all the ingredients and apply to the face. Smooth massage movements wipe your face for 2 minutes and rinse with warm water.
Scrub for oily skin prone to rashes
Black bread must be dried and ground in a coffee grinder. Bread crumbs mixed with warm milk until the formation of a thin slurry. Prepared scrub to wipe face and rinse with warm water.
Masks for oily skin of the face
Owners of oily facial skin know how difficult it is to keep your skin in good condition every day. In addition to the special washing and peeling, oily skin must also be sugared and nourished with masks. After all, as a rule, a mask for oily skin is much easier to use than scrubs. I generally love to do different masochki, and constantly joking about this – I did and forgot. All because, really, put the necessary mask on your face and you walk around the house – you cook, clean up, and, in general, do your own business.
Any skin needs extra nutrition and fatty is no exception.
Oily skin of the face perfectly perceives the mask based on lemon juice and cream. Need to take 2 tablespoons. Low-fat cream and squeeze into this mass as much about a lemon juice. The mask is applied to the face and walk with it for about 15 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly with warm water. This mask nourishes the skin cells with vitamin C and makes the face noticeably fresh.
In summer, for oily skin with enlarged pores, you can make a mask of raspberries. Fresh berries are crushed in a bowl and add a little rice flour to them. Count the ingredients yourself, the main thing is that you get a uniform thick mass, which can be easily applied to the face. It is better to take everything in the same proportions. We impose a ready mask on the face and wait 15 minutes. We wash off as usual with warm water.
Among women who struggle with the fat content of the face, the mask on the basis of oat-flakes has proved to be a good one. Prepare it as follows: 3 tbsp. Mix the ground oatmeal with beaten egg whites. Stir the mixture and apply to face. Leave on face for 20 minutes and rinse with water.
By the way, oily skin also needs additional moisturizing. Before you saturate the skin with moisture, it must be thoroughly cleaned with a scrub (all recipes are given above), and then proceed to moisturize. I moisturize my skin with oatmeal with honey. For this I take 2 tablespoons. Oat flakes, 1 tbsp. Honey and as much vegetable or olive oil. I mix and apply mass to the cleansed face. After 20 minutes I wash off with warm water and soak the face with a soft towel. This mask is pleasant to me in that it perfectly pulls down pores, appreciably leveles a relief of the face, humidifies a skin and does or makes its matte. After it, I do not need to apply any additional remedy on the face. I can immediately apply decorative cosmetics – foundation or foundation.
By the way, if you have never tried to apply cosmetic ice to your face, then you have missed a lot. And for a fatty type of skin of the face, he just did just to help.
Freezing ice cubes for cosmetic purposes is quite simple. Different components are used for each type of face. For oily skin, for example, the most effective prescription for cosmetic ice is ice wine. I use them if not every day, then 2-3 times a week for sure. So in my freezer he’s waiting for me all the time. And he prepares this way: I take dry herbs of St. John’s wort and sage 2 tbsp each. And pour 1/3 cup of boiling water. I insist for an hour, filter, cool and mix with 1/3 cup of white semi-dry wine. Pour into ice molds and send it to the freezer. In general, everything is simple and understandable. Use ready-made ice every day, rubbing your face with frozen cubes for 3-4 minutes. Cubes must be driven around the face, doing massage movements. I generally feel at the same time full relaxation. Then rinse your face with cool water. The effect of this ice is that the pores become narrower and the complexion becomes better.
If you already have a fat type of face and want your skin to always look really nice and fresh, then in addition to the above techniques, which are basic, you need to eat right. Eat something that you like first and foremost, not only you, but your skin. Be sure to read the article on our website about healthy nutrition “Healthy Lifestyle”
Pay attention to your diet: Eat not only regularly, but also correctly. Refuse, or at least reduce your fervor to spicy food, such as mustard, pepper, vinegar, they stimulate the work of the sebaceous glands and irritate them. Eat more milk and lactic products, vegetables and fruits, replace white bread with black bread.
An additional plus of proper nutrition will be a slender, smart figure. And how to lose weight, read in the article “How to Lose Weight Without Dieting”
About cosmetics for oily skin
To select decorative cosmetics for a fat skin it is necessary extremely carefully and attentively.
The tonal cream is better to choose matte with a dense texture, in comparison with light creams it is more stable. An excellent choice will be a foundation, which will include kaolin clay – it effectively controls the fat content of the skin. Anti-inflammatory effect will have a cream containing zinc oxide. When you apply it, use the necessary sponge, but you do not need to drive the cream with your fingers, as you can provoke sebum secretion.
Which powder to choose? The most optimal choice is a matte compact powder for oily skin, also with a dense texture.
If you use blush, then you should give up cream or liquid rouge. The same applies to eye shadows.
Avoid liquid leaks for the eyes and lips, otherwise your “beauty” will simply float a couple of hours after application.
In conclusion, I want to appeal to women who have oily skin, so that your skin is a virtue, not a flaw, you look after it correctly and regularly, do not be lazy, and then you will always be on top.
