4 Ways to Get Rid of Oily Skin for Good

September 21, 2017

Everyone loves a nice shine on their face, except when it’s an oily shine. It’s normal for your skin to break out during a period of stress or during summer, but what comes with oily skin is far from being pleasant. Whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and skin irritations… we’re sick and tired of them. But you don’t have to worry about it anymore as we have gathered the best and fastest remedies!

Natural remedies
Egg whites, apples or even cucumbers could result in a healthier, oil free complexion in no time. Egg whites are filled with vitamin A, which means that they can efficiently dry out your skin blemishes and tighten up your pores. As for apples and cucumbers, they make great exfoliating agents and have astringent and soothing properties.

Should you hydrate?
Unlike what you might think, it’s actually recommended that you moisturize your skin, especially if it’s oily. You need to keep your skin's barrier intact and block out bacteria and UV rays by hydrating it regularly. More specifically, look for lightweight lotions or serums with hyaluronic acid or glycerin.

The less makeup, the better
Wearing too much makeup can make your skin even greasier and block your pores. Go easy on the makeup, and you might want to consider using a BB cream instead of foundation. Or even better; use cosmetics that are specifically made for people with oily skin. Most importantly, always wash your makeup off before going to bed.

Do a facial steam
This might be your next everyday routine: the facial steam. Bring a large basin of boiling water; add 3 drops of tea tree essential oil and some fresh basil leaves. Then, put a large towel on the back of your head and put your face over the steaming basin for about 10 minutes… and voilà!
