How To Control Oily Skin – Part 1

By Louise Forrest

Try applying baby powder with cornstarch to your oily facial zones. The powder helps keep your face looking fresh all day if you apply it after your foundation and before your normal powder. Name brand is not important, just that you get the kind with cornstarch in it.

Remember to use moisturizer after cleansing if yoBaking Soda, you can add a tablespoon of baking soda to your favorite mild cleanser (full bottle). It will provide gentle exfoliation and kill bacteria at the same time.

Cornstarch; use cornstarch brushed with a light hand and a large powder brush before you apply your normal powder.

Gatorade; apply Gatorade to your face with a cotton ball, rinse when you feel tingling.

Hand Soap; use a very mild antibacterial soap on your face every once in a while. The milk and honey types offer a bit of moisturizer while cleaning, but you will still need to moisturize with a good moisturizer for oily skin.

Honey; this is a natural moisturizers and antibacterial agent which cleans while it softens. Apply a tablespoon to your face and let it sit for 10 minutes. Rinse well with warm water. This can be used as often as necessary.

Lemon; Squeeze a fresh lemon and apply the juice with a cotton ball; let it sit for 3 minutes before cleansing but do not leave it on your skin any longer than that. If your skin gets irritated, try mixing it with witch hazel in a 50/50 solution.

Moisturize; because lack of moisture tends to make your oil glands work overtime, do not bypass the moisturizer. It is always tempting to leave the moisturizer out when you have oily skin because adding moisture to a face that is already over producing oil does not seem logical, but do not give in to the temptation. Apply your moisturizer to a damp face and it will help seal in much needed moisture, which can help your oil glands begin to regulate themselves.

Oil Absorbing Sheets; found in local drug and discount stores can help you tone down the shine that begins to show in the middle of your day. They are good for use with makeup because they tone down the shine without removing makeup.

Oily skin can be an aggravating part of your life, but if you care for it, it will care for you. People with oily skin tend to show age more slowly and burn less then their dry skinned counterparts. Using the following tips compiled from real people who face the dilemma of successfully controlling oily skin, you will be able to find ones that work for you.

Sandalwood; just mix enough witch hazel with sandalwood powder to make a paste. Apply to your face and let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

Steam; open your pores before cleansing once or twice a week. There are two ways you can do this. First (and best) is to boil a pot of water; once it begins to boil, take it off the heat (and away from the stove).

Lean over the pot with a towel over your head, creating a tent over your head and the pot. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF. The steam will be trapped by the towel, allowing your face to get a mini sauna which will open the pores. Immediately cleanse with a mild cleanser and follow with a good moisturizer for oily skin.

Tea Tree Oil; apply this natural oil to your skin at night and remember to drink plenty of water. The combination will clear your face quickly.

Triggers; learn to recognize the various internal and external things that cause your oil glands to kick up the juice. Stress is often a factor as well as many environmental factors. Once you know which things trigger your oil glands to over-produce, you can work to avoid them.

Water; drink your 8 glasses a day! Water helps clear the toxins trapped in the skin as well as providing internal moisture to it. When your skin is hydrated, it does not need to try to compensate for dryness. This does not mean that you will never have oily skin, but it will gradually become much more balanced.

      I hope you know she’s wearing makeup. Anyway you should try “Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisture” (for the face), In Medium. I use Aveeno ‘Positively Radiant’, it works well for my face but its alittle drying (b/c of the SPF formula), so I use Vitamin E Oil in conjuction with my moisturizer. Sometimes I use oil before putting on my moisturizer, sometimes I just mix them. Dull skin tends to be more persistent in the colder seasons.

      BTW, you should consider buying a bronzer. Something sheer with alittle shimmer. I think Physician’s Formula has some of the best natural looking bronzers for decent prices. I recommend their latest “Shimmer Strips”, its compared to Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Bricks.

    What is a good skin moisturizer for 16 mos old?
    My 16 mos old has a very dry skin and the winter air has seemed to make it even worse. I’ve used vaseline on her rough spots ( knees, ankles, elbows etc) but now her whole body seems to have become a rough spot 🙂
    I’ve tried different lotions and none of them have been rich enough. What is a good and gentle moisturizer I could use or should I just dipp her in vaseline?

    • sarah_dtv says:

      My daughter had very dry skin, and her pediatrician recommended Eucerin. It’s thick, perfect for their skin and has no irritants. Plus there’s a cheap Equate version of it at Walmart for 1/3 of the price.

    What is a good facial moisturizer for very sensitive skin?
    I have been using Neutrogena Oil Free for sensitive skin moisturizer for years but lately every time I wash my face (Neutrogena sensitive skin cleanser) it feels like I have poured gasoline on my face and struck a match. I get the same feeling when I put my moisturizer on. Also, my face seems so dry and tight feeling. I’ve noticed the past few days around my check bones I’m beginning to peel. I think i just need a good hardy moisturizer. Just wondering if anyone could recommend a brand for me to try. Thanks!

    • Ebony says:

    What is the best type of skin moisturizer?
    I’m looking for a really reliable skin moisturizer that I can use all over my body. What is the best moisturizer for my money? Something that is easy to apply, effective, and not too expensive. I wouldn’t be opposed to a tinted moisturizer, either.

    • CaBBaGeXLoVeR says:

      I have eczema. I used to use AVEENO but now, I use CETAPHIL. I suggest you try those 2. 🙂
