Are you in a never ending battle with your oily skin? Is your skin blemish or acne prone?
You need help!
Follow the guidelines below for oily skin care. Zap the shine and prevent the zits!
Gently wash your face twice a day with a mild, natural product.
Apply a toner to tighten pores and improve skin quality.
Choose water-based cosmetics. Oil-based make-up tends to aggravate oily skin, opening the door to acne and blemishes. Many find mineral cosmetics ideal for oily/acne prone skin.
Remove make-up before bed ... always! Make this a rule you never break. If you cleanse your face morning and night, you have this covered.
Use facial blotting papers to soak up midday shine. These absorbent papers were first used by Japanese women, centuries ago, to care for their beautiful porcelain skin. These absorbent papers are economical, convenient, and very effective at removing oil. Plus they won’t disturb make-up. Gently press along the T-Zone.
Is your skin prone to acne? Everyone can benefit from the following advice, but it is especially important to help combat acne...
Eat a healthy diet, including lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. But don’t feel guilty about eating a piece of chocolate. Chocolate is not responsible for acne. Find more information on healthy eating here: Healthy Foods for Skin.
Drink 8 glasses of water per day. An overall healthy habit, it is particular helpful in
flushing impurities from your skin. Find more incentive to drink here:Benefits of Drinking Water for Skin.
Relax and unwind. There's a correlation between stress and acne. Add fun to your to-do list... it'll show on your face!
