Fresh Approach to Oily Skin Care

This skin type usually has open pores and an oily surface with a tendency towards pimples, blackheads and a sallow appearance. The good news is that this oiliness will make your skin stay younger.

Even though the remainder of your face is prone to oiliness, always remember that the skin around your eyes is very delicate, so don’t drag at it when removing your eye makeup. Soak a cotton wool pad with a non oily remover and hold over your eyes for a few seconds to give it time to dissolve the make up. Then lightly stroke away the mascara and make -up from the eyelids, and the upper and lower lashes.
Lather up with a gentle facial wash, as it won’t strip away moisture from your skin, but it will remove grime, dirt and oil. Massage gently over damp skin with your fingertips, and then rinse away the soapy suds with lots of warm water.
Soak a cotton wool ball with a refreshing astringent lotion. Sweep it over your skin to refresh and cool it .Continue until the cotton wool comes up completely clean.
Even oily skin needs moisturizer, because a moisturizer helps to seal water into the top layer to keep the skin soft and supple. Choose a light, watery fluid as this will be enough for you.
Allow the moisturizer to sink in for a few minutes, and then press a clean tissue over your face to absorb the excess oil and prevent a shiny complexion.
