Perhaps you gave up long ago in your battle with skin that always seems to be oily. You can’t do much about genetics but you can do a lot about cutting back on your current level of oil production. Washing your face obsessively is a mistake and bad for your skin. Your skin needs at least a light oil layer on it but you don’t want it to be a lot. Healthy skin contains a little bit of oil because it serves to keep your skin moist, supple, plus it helps to protect it. If you’re always washing that oily layer away your skin will simply make more oil to counteract your efforts. That can help you if you didn’t know about it already and this article has even more helpful information. Whether it’s taking care of your skin or your build muscle related business, the most important thing is focus.
A more long-term solution to reducing the constant oily sheen that seems to occur so fast is to properly and routinely add moisturizer to your face. Each night, before you go to bed, wash off all of your makeup, cleanse your face and put on a little bit of moisturizer. Choose the best products for your actual skin type. Keep in mind that the best products are not necessarily the most expensive. You can find very inexpensive natural astringents, and you can even make your own that are healthy and low cost. Believe it or not, cold and pure water is a perfect natural astringent.
If you are a big fan of make-up, are you sure that you are wearing the right kind? In addition, do you wear a lot of makeup or a heavy amount of it? If you wear a heavy layer of makeup you have two options: you can wear less (or lighter layers) or you can work harder each day to cleanse your skin. The reason being your skin may be responding to the heavy layers of make-up in the attempt to keep your pores clear and clean. Be careful to read the ingredients on your products because using oil based products could exacerbate the problem. The main reason for this is that you don’t want to keep fueling the fire. It’s important to take care of your skin just like it’s important to take care of your natural body building business too.
If you aren’t wearing any make up, just wash your face with pure water and don’t use anything else. We cringe at the notion of using plain old tap water in the US because our water hosts fluoride and chlorine. This is why, if you have the means, you should use filtered water. It’s a good idea to use a faucet mounted purifier to get as much chlorine out as possible. Chlorine sucks the moisture out of your skin and you don’t want that. Then, like we’ve said before, use a water based moisturizer. The water will wash away any accumulated impurities and dirt, and the moisturizer will do its job as well. Once you start looking into the best methods for fighting against oily skin, you will learn just how simple it is supposed to be (and that, maybe, you’ve been making it harder than it needs to be). It is important that you become intimately familiar with your skin–you need to know exactly what kind of skin you have. Knowing your skin type is important because it is what will tell you just how best to fight your skin issues. Taking our previous health & fitness business example, you need to know your product type before promoting it; the same goes for your skin.
