There is a difference between glowing skin and ‘shiny’ skin. That extra sheen that your face gets at times is due to an overproduction of oil in the skin. You can do a simple experiment to know if you have oily skin. Get a dry tissue, and dab it on your face. If it comes back as a bit more transparent and partially soaked with oil, you have an oily skin type. Your skin has sebaceous glands which produce sebum, which is an oil that is naturally produced by the skin to keep it hydrated through the day and maintain its health. These glands can at times overproduce oil due to various reasons, and this overproduction of oil is what you see on your face.
It could happen due to many factors, like genetic predispositions, hormonal changes, lifestyle and dietary factors and many more. You can find the root cause of your oily skin and fix it by developing various habits that aren’t too complicated and can help your skin out.
Moisturise – Contrary to popular belief, oily skin requires proper hydration to NOT BE OILY. Our skin tends to overproduce oil when it gets too dry, in turn causing the skin to become oily. You can go for a moisturiser which is gel-based and lightweight so that it can be absorbed easily and quickly without causing the skin to break out.
Over cleanse – The same can be said for washing your face far too often. It can dry out your skin furthermore causing your sebaceous glands to go into emergency mode.
Unsuitable Skin Care Products – Some skincare products are at times made with low-quality ingredients or ingredients which could cause your skin to break out. You can avoid this problem by using quality products and carefully vetting their ingredients.
Age – Your age matters too. The skin goes through changes, just the like the body, the skin changes along with it. During puberty, it tends to overproduce oil and there are a lot of hormonal changes, resulting in A LOT OF BREAKOUTS and agony. It will pass at the onset of adulthood but even if it doesn’t, you have control! You can help your skin back to its health with proper care and nourishment.
Diet – At times, just eliminating fried, spicy and junk food from your diet could make a world of difference to your skin.
Oily skincare doesn’t have to be tough. You can start by cleaning your face twice a day and no more. After cleansing, your skin is primed for soaking up all the hydration that it can get. that is when you should apply your cream for oily skin. You can do this twice a day, once in the morning and once at night to ensure deep moisturisation. A cream which is lightweight and easily absorbed by the skin like Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Revitalising Hydration Cream SPF 15 which will hydrate your skin and protect it from the sun. At night you can re-hydrate your skin with Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Revitalising Night Skin Cream + Hydration Skin Cream Moisturizer . This way your skin will stay healthy and hydrated 24X7!
