When you suffer from oily skin, the troubles can seem endless. From humid weather to high pollution levels, there are numerous factors that just won't cut your skin any slack. They affect the sebaceous glands within your skin, leading to a greasy t-zone and further, to pimples and blemishes on your face. If you are wondering how to control the oil being secreted by your skin, our beauty tips for oily skin should be of help…

Cleanse right

Cleansing is an important part of an oily skin care routine because the amount of cleansing will affect your skin’s oil secretion. While a splash of cold water feels heavenly, it doesn’t benefit your skin. Choose lukewarm water since it dissolves oil quicker than cold water. We recommend that you use a specialised product such as the Pond's Pimple Clear White Multi-Action Facial Wash. Its oil absorbing clay combined with a brightening essence and salicylic acid, leave your skin radiant and clear.

Tiny changes

Before leaving the house, make sure you have blotting sheets in your bag. You can rely on them to soak up the oil if you feel it setting into your skin. Every few weeks, fit in a facial steam to open the pores and dissolve the sebum. Another oily skin care tip is to consciously stop contact with your face. Our hands are carriers of oil and bacteria which can affect the condition of your skin.

Drink your greens

If you detest including greens in your dinner plate, consume them via a power-packed green smoothie instead. Add a cup of spinach, two sweet fruits and some water into a blender and drink this iron and chlorophyll laden smoothie. These ingredients are blood purifiers which flush away toxins from the body and aid in reducing your skin problems.
