8 Best Skincare Tips For Oily Skin
So I don’t know about you people but for me, summer is my least favorite season. Being a person with oily skin it’s very difficult for me to adjust to these warm winds. Our skin is made up of tiny pores and beneath these tiny pores are the sebaceous glands. These glands further produce an oil known as sebum, during hot and humid weather sebaceous glands tend to produce more and more sebum. This extra sebum produced tends to give our skin an oily and greedy texture. Other factors lead to the production of extra sebum during humid weather. Reasons like hormonal fluctuations and genes.
Although the production of sebum is necessary because it keeps our skin hydrated, overproducing sebum is something that is our major concern. As we can’t control our inner activities, let’s figure out some other hacks that will help people with oily skin to get through this season with fewer difficulties. This reminds me of today’s topic, which is SKINCARE TIPS FOR OILY SKIN Following are some skincare tips that have been recommended by dermatologists and most of them are being followed by me.
⚫8 Best Skincare Tips For Oily Skin
Now that we are aware of the fact that why do people have oily skin and how can hot and humid weather make it worse for oily skin people, it is difficult to survive this weather. Let’s move towards some skincare tips for oily skin that we should keep into consideration and also they will help us in adjusting to this weather to some extent. Following are the tips.
1.Use Products Formulated For Your Skin Type
This skincare tip is for everyone. Whether it be people with oily skin, dry skin, or normal skin, it is suggested that you should choose skincare products that are specially formulated for your skin. For instance, a person with dry skin requires a cream with a heavy texture but the one with oily skin requires a light texture moisturizer. So go for the products formulated for your skin type.
2.Use Clean Hands To Apply Products
Again a skincare tip that will be beneficial for all skin types. No matter how busy you might be, don’t forget to wash your hands before applying products to your skin. This way you can prevent transferring any dirt, debris, or oils that might be sitting on your hands onto your face. So according to this tip don’t forget to wash your hands.
3.Cleanse Your Skin Twice A Day
It is said that people with oily skin should wash their faces repeatedly. But that is not required. No matter what skin type you have, dermatologists suggest that you should wash your face twice a day(morning and night). Excess washing can lead to loss of essential oils in your skin. This further will force the sebaceous glands to produce more oil and hence your skin will look even oilier.
4. Exfoliate Weekly
Exfoliation is very important for your skin. Dead skin cells can build up on the surface of your skin, causing your complexion to look dull. So it is suggested that you add an Exfoliating face scrub to your skincare routine. It will help in removing the dead skin cells and will give you a baby soft clear skin. But the thing that should be taken care of is that don’t Exfoliate often. Weekly exfoliation is enough. Excess exfoliation can harm your skin. According to me Aminu Microdermabrasion Face Scrub is the best exfoliator.
5. Don’t Skip Your Moisturizer
Having oily skin doesn’t mean that you can skip your moisturizer in hot weather. Moisturizer is a must. This is because there are many external factors like pollution, UV rays, and excessive cleaning that can damage your skin’s moisture barrier. Again as I mentioned above loss of moisture means more production of sebum and as a result, your skin will look dull, greasy the whole day. So what you can do is find a moisturizer that is made for your skin type and use it regularly.
6. Sun Protection Should Be A Priority
Again this skincare tip is not only for a specific skin type. This is a suggestion that I would like to give everyone. No matter what skin type you have. As for people with oily skin you should go for a sunscreen with a broad spectrum, SPF 15 (or more depending on the weather conditions of your place), and should be oil-free. You must carry sunscreen with you coz being a person with oily skin it’s natural we will sweat often. So try applying it every two hours or after sweating.

7. Clay MASK
Many people like me want to go for some kind of mask but being a person with oily skin, not able to decide which one. So I did some research and it is suggested that people with oily skin should go for a clay mask. Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking overly oily. A clay mask will help you in drawing out all of these from your skin and will give you clean soft skin. Know your skin type.
8. Blotting Sheets
These sheets are a savior if you want a quick solution for your oily skin. If you are a person with oily skin you will often come across times when there will be excess oil on your skin or in other words your skin starts to look super-shiny then these sheets can help you in removing the extra oil and give you the desired fresh look.
