Open Up The Pores And Clean Out The Oily Skin

by David Faulkner

We all have oil glands; some of us seem to have the ones that are working more than those of others are. Those with oily skin are reaping some benefits from it. Oily skin will help to slow the aging process and it give the skin a better glow that those with dry skin. Oily skin also has disadvantages to it. Oily skin can cause dirt and bacteria to stick around and that will cause acne. This is more of the case when the person is in the younger years of adolescence when the hormones that drive sex (androgens) are moving around at a fast pace and this makes the glands give off more oil than usual. This makes it a more important time for astringents used on the face.

The oil form the glands does not cause damage and are a great thing for the skin to use as a defense because they keep the skin moist and get also help it to get rid of the old cells of skin that are in the walls of the hair follicles. The way for you to keep the skin looking smooth and with no blemishes on it is by making sure that your pores are clear and are not in any way able to create acne. You can take the first step by getting yourself something that does not cost a lot that is made for oily skin. Make sure what you are getting commercially is not going to damage the skin. The next things that you may want to try are the use of a toner, cleaner, and exfoliate but these usually do not help. The idea that you need to keep in your mind is to not dry up the skin because this will make it produce more oils than before.

Hints To Help With Oily Skin

It is amazing to learn that oily skin can also be sensitive skin. Washing it with a cleaner will cause the skin to become irritated and swollen. When you use water that is room temperature and a mild cleaner followed by cool water for rinsing, it will be best. You should try to avoid wearing makeup as much as possible. It is even better if you do not wear it at all. If you need to wear makeup, you should purchase makeup that is not oil based. Make sure that you remove your makeup each night before you go to bed and do not use a night cream. Makeup and creams will cause the skin to be clogged up and will add to the grease that is already there causing the irritation and the swelling to get worse. Fruit acids will take off the top layer of the skin and still give you the natural hydration you need.

You can also get yourself the medications that are available over the counter for oily skin. Benzoyl Peroxide is one of them that will remove the bacteria and germs and has been shown to take off the dead skin cells that cause the acne to start. That would be right in the follicles of the hair. Adding to the hints for oily skin you should try sulfur products, resorcinol, and salicylic acids to start the healing process of the acne blemishes and blackheads.
