Things You Should Avoid When You Have Oily Skin

Having oily skin can be troubling. Excess oil can cause breakouts and clog pores. Excess oil on the skin can be uncomfortable and greasy face always looks unappealing. Here are some tips on what not to do when you have oily skin.

 

#1 Don’t overwash your face

You might feel the need to wash your face five times a day, but it will strip out the natural oils and can irritate the skin. Always keep blotting paper in hand so instead of washing your face, blot it to keep your face from shining.

#2 Don’t wash your face with hot water

Over-washing your face using hot water will dry out your skin. It will treat the dryness by producing more oil. Wash with warm water instead.

 

#3 Don’t sleep on dirty pillow

Always change your pillowcase often. A pillowcase can absorb dirt and oil. When you put your face on a dirty pillowcase you may expose your skin to bacteria that can cause damage.

 

#4 Don’t let your skin get dehydrated

Don’t forget to drink enough water and use an oil-free moisturizer. It will help your skin hydrate from inside and outside.

 

#5 Don’t give up on finding the right products

There are so many skincare products to choose best suited for your needs. If you’ve tried a moisturizer or facial wash that didn’t work, don’t give up there are so many options. And if you think your oily skin needs special treatment, you can go to a dermatologist to get the best treatment.
