Hello my lovlies! Today i will be doing another beauty blog…DUH! It would be weird if i wasnt, after all our blog name is BEAUTYholics.
After writing me Acne skincare routine blog, i began to realize that when i comes to your skin, people suffer many problems. Some people get really bad acne, others get really bad dry skin, and then others get really bad oily skin. So i thought, since throughout my short life, i have suffered both oily and dry skin, i would do a blog on what i did to get rid/help my oily skin. Hopefully this will help those of you out there suffering oily skin.
Get a face wash that it suited toward oily skin, and wash you face twice a day.
I started noticing that i was getting oily skin shortly after i started my first period in the 6th grade. I was terrified by how oily my skin looked, and how no matter what i did, i couldn’t seem to make it go away. That was until i started using Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser. I highly recommend this, and if you have sensitive skin like i do this is still a good cleanser so dont be afraid! I would wash my face once in the morning, make sure that you PAT your face dry, instead of rubbing it. Then i would wash my face for the second time before bed.
Wash your bed sheets and pillows once a week.
Along with washing your face twice a day, i also would wash my pillows and bedding once a week. I personally believe that doing this really helped my acne and my oily skin
Start an oil free diet.
I know its hard to pass up a french fry here and there, but exchanging that french fry for some veggies, and that burger for more lean meat will really improve your oily skin. When i cut back on the more processed food, i could see a noticable change in the oily-ness of my skin within a week. Cutting back on surgary drinks will also help reduce skin oil.
Exfoliate Exfoliate Exfoliate!
Exfoliating your skin twice a week will reduce oily skin like you wouldnt believe. By exfoliating your skin, youre stripping yourself of dead skin cells, which helps reduce skin oils. Just be careful not to over exfoliate, that will only make the oily-ness wose.
By exercising daily you are increasing your blood flow which opens up your clogged pores as well as nourishes your skin.
- WATER WATER WATER.
Drink lots and lots of water. Water is such an amazing thing and will help you so so so so much. I cannot stress how important water is. I would reccomned drinking 5-6 glasses of water a day.
Thats it for todays blog. Comment down below how you got rid of your oily skin, or if you plan on doing this to get rid of oily skin!
