Use the right cleanser
Only a girl with oily skin will understand the fear of waking up to a pimple in the morning. Think you’re one of them? Introduce yourself to the Ponds Pimple Clear Face Wash. Wondering why we swear by this one? Well, it’s designed with Active Thymo-T essence which stops pimples in their tracks so that your skin is left flawless. Consider this one of the most effective oily skin skin treatments. It's a must-have for anyone whose acne is giving them sleepless nights.
Don’t pick your face
Picking red spots and acne will only cause further damage to the skin. The bacteria in your fingers will come in contact with the pimple making the acne all the more severe. Plus, the bacteria will only spread and cause a cluster of acne. Our suggestion would be to wash your hands before you apply anything on your face or even touch your face.
Keep makeup brushes clean
Like we mentioned before, your hands carry ample amount of bacteria. Hence, it’s best to always use makeup sponges and brushes instead of your hands to blend your makeup. While you do that, make sure you wash your brushes regularly because dirty ones are going to make your oily skin worse and cause zits. Once you wash your brushes, let them dry and then use them to blend your foundation or blush.
Don’t use the usual sunscreen
Yes, we know how scared you are of using sunscreen that leaves an oily residue on the skin making your face further oily. While most sunscreens are sticky, the Lakmé 9to5 Super Sunscreen works best and should be included in your regime as a part of skin care for oily skin. This one has two variants and we suggest you use the one that has a mattifying effect on the skin. It’s matte so it disappears into your skin instantly but the results are hugely satisfying.
Wash your hair regularly
If you suffer from oily skin, you are most likely to have an oily scalp. If you don’t wash your hair often, the oil in your scalp mixes up with the hair product you use. You hair constantly touches your face making it all the more oily. Ever thought about that? Exactly why it’s best to wash your hair as regularly as possible.
Eat right and stay hydrated
While you must follow the above rules to get rid of acne, it is absolutely necessary to cleanse your system from within in order to fight oily skin. So include leafy vegetables like broccoli in your diet and also try to consume sweet potatoes and blueberries, which fight acne because of their antioxidant powers. Green tea is also known to help treat acne because of contains anti-inflammatory agents but it is water that ultimately flushes out toxins leaving your skin fresh and pimple-free.
