Problem skin is prone to acne formation. Due to the increased production of sebum, the pores are clogged, an oily sheen appears. Complete home care will help normalize the sebaceous glands and significantly improve the condition of oily skin.
Perform high-quality cleansing of oily skin. In the morning and evening, wash your face with warm water, as hot water will provoke excessive sebum production, and cold water will not effectively wash away excess oil. Use gels and foams designed for oily skin. Thoroughly lather the T-zone, chin, as these are the places where the largest number of sebaceous glands are located.
Immediately after washing, wipe the skin with a lotion or toner containing zinc, salicylic acid. It is undesirable to use alcoholic lotions. Despite the fact that after using alcohol-based lotions, it will first be possible to significantly dry the epidermis, in the future the production of sebum will increase, and the oily sheen cannot be removed by any toning agents. It is rational to use alcohol lotions only as an ambulance when acne is inflamed and emergency disinfection is required.
To improve the condition of oily skin, use a light moisturizer or mousse immediately after cleansing. In the daytime, it is rational to use moisturizers with UV filters, and at night - with extracts of cornflower, chamomile, calendula.
Exfoliate three times a week. Currently, a wide variety of ready-made cosmetic products are on sale for the effective removal of dead skin cells. These peels are based on natural plant acids that quickly soften the stratum corneum.
Alternatively, you can prepare an acid peel yourself. Use a blender to soften the pulp of an orange or lemon, add a few drops of kefir and fine salt. Apply to skin. After 10 minutes, rinse thoroughly with warm water and use a moisturizer for oily skin.
Use rolled oats mixed with chicken egg white as a mask to help quickly eliminate the oily sheen. Apply the mask to your skin. After 15 minutes, wash off with plenty of water.
The microdermabrasion procedure is carried out in a salon. You can get rid of enlarged pores, restore firmness and elasticity of oily skin after 5-6 sessions.
It is rational to carry out mechanical cleaning only as a last resort, if the pores are clogged, and other methods cannot get rid of blackheads. When choosing a beauty salon and beautician, be especially careful. If mechanical cleaning is carried out by an inexperienced master, scars and blue spots will remain on the skin.
