Oily skin care tips for glowing and healthy face

Down below there are some skin care tips that you need to follow and you can easily achieve good healthy skin.

1.Don’t skip cleansing 

In oily skin sebaceous gland is very active. Therefore level of sebum is very high in oily skin. It is important to cleanse skin twice or thrice a day. Be careful use particularly oil free cleanser/ facewash. You can also use medicated soap. Cleansing is important routine of skin care regime. When sebum stays for a long time on skin it invites many bacteria to attack and hence formation of acne starts.


A toner is a lotion or gel applied after a facial cleanser to remove excess dirt, oils  and to close the pores. Especially this skin has enlarged pores so closing pores is important. If it doesn’t happens external bacteria or dust can easily accumulate in skin. As result, you can end up with various skin problems therefore after using a cleanser/face wash you must use toner every time. Use two cotton pads. Dip cotton balls in toner, use toner on your face and neck after every cleansing.You can also try my recommended product

3.Exfoliating is a necessity for oily skin

For this skin type exfoliation is recommended twice a week. Exfoliation/scrubbing removes dead skin cells and reduce whiteheads-blackheads as well. If you are suffering from acne issues don’t use granular scrub, it can irritate your skin. Use gel base exfoliator.

Moisturizing skin is always necessary. There is a big myth about oily skin and moisturizers. Usually people think that if they have oily skin they don’t need moisturizer but this is totally wrong. Moisturizer will not leave any greasy look on your skin. Generally the work of moisturizer on skin is to hydrate skin only. It will increase water content not oil content in skin. If you apply moisturizer regularly at some point your skin will reduce production of sebum in excessive amount. Hence choosing right product is always important. Use only moisturizers which are especially for oily skin.Therefore my recommended product is

5.Weekly Face Mask

Applying face mask once a week is recommended for oily skin. Most preferred mask for oily skin is clay or mud mask. These mask helps in removing excess oil from face. In case of clay mask, you have to be careful about time. You cannot keep clay mask more than 15-20 minutes. If you did it might dry your skin too much.

To make any mask more effective you must perform proper cleansing and exfoliation process. You can perform mini facial at home also. Just follow these steps or you can also try my recommended product

6.Massaging face

Massage is very relaxing process and has many benefits as well. It plays an important role in having a healthy glowing face. It helps in maintaining good blood and lymph circulation for face. That’s the secret for glow. Massage will help in lighten blemishes or any post acne scare. You can use massage gel if you are already suffering from acne breakouts. It will really help you in soothing your skin. Be careful if you have any active acne on face. You should avoid that area.

7.Sunscreen is very important

Most of people having oily skin skip sunscreen just because after few hours it feels so greasy on skin. Usually reason behind this greasiness is wrong choice of product. There are special gel-base sunscreens available. These sunscreens won’t feel you greasy on skin. Thus it gives you nice matte finish on face and it offers you good sun protection as well.Therefore my recommended product is

8.Choosing Makeup Products

Makeup always makes us beautiful and happy at the same time. Therefore using one wrong product on your face can change your skin condition. As a result you might face acne or breakouts or any other oily skin issues. So use only those makeup products which are especially for oily skin.
