|Ways to Fight Oily Skin|
Read on to get over the old soap and water
Around 30 to 40 per cent of us are
born with overactive oil glands and the situation is aggravated by
hormonal changes such as those experienced during adolescence,
pregnancy, and diet. Climate is a key factor too. It is said that
oil production de increases 10 per cent for every one-degree
increase in temperature, which makes residents of our part of the
world very vulnerable indeed!
But perhaps the most useful
piece of new information is that washing your face too frequently
can make the situation worse. It seems that while dermatologists
were well acquainted with the composition of sebum (it's made by the
sebaceous glands located near the base of the hair follicle in each
pore), they weren't sure what actually caused it to be produced. Now
there is evidence that sebum is produced when the sebaceous .a
glands detect a lack of oil on the face.
The sebum starts to
flow precisely when the skin is clean and dry and free of oil.
Therefore, if oily skin is your problem, take note: over cleaning
and drying out the skin will only make things worse because they
increase oil production, and a vicious circle will have been
Don't forget moisture:
companies have been trying to educate us on the virtues of gentler
treatment of oily skin! And they've started giving us special
grease-relief formulas as well, products that will cut the oil
without drying, but at the same time make skin Feel fresh -important
if you stop the constant washing, but still want to feel clean.
Don't forget that even oily complexions need some sort of
moisturizer; this is particularly important if you are to avoid the
drying that causes overproduction of oil. And a face that is too
dried out will show even the tiniest wrinkle when makeup is applied.
For efficient oil control and radiant skin, Estee Lauder's 3
skin-care regimes are highly recommended. This is a simple, but
powerfully comprehensive program, as is promised with proven
clinical test results. These products will give you all the moisture
needed by oily skin, but in a non-greasy, oil-free formulation.
It almost goes without saying that Vichy Laboratories have
taken a serious dermatological approach to the problem. Their
Regulative oil control treatment is a complete program. For users of
Chanel products, life is made easy with the Chanel Beauty Action
Plan, which shows clearly and simply in color code what products to
use according to skin type. Specially recommended is the Chanel
Purifying and Clarifying Masque cream for oily and combination skin.
Use once or twice a week, if necessary with a whole range of
complementary cleansing, purifying, toning and mortifying products.
Ever-thorough, Clinique identified no less than five degrees
of oiliness: Oily Here and There forehead, nose, chin; Oily in
Summer Only; Moderately Oily; Oily All Over All the Time; and Oil-
Troubled Plus. Check out which one suits you.
Too much makeup tends to coagulate. To avoid pooling
of foundation, mix a dab in the cap of the bottle with water, and
then apply sparingly on the face. When you use powder, make sure
that it is ultra matte and that it doesn't contain mica, which
causes unnecessary shimmer on an already shiny skin. Check the
labeling on the jar and make sure you use all oil-free products,
from moisturizer to foundation to blush. The key for oily skin is
that less is more!
Activated Oil Glands:
glands can work overtime for a variety of reasons such as stress,
changes in the weather, hormonal changes, and over- washing.
Constant de-flaking and de-slicking is needed for the skin to look
its freshest and clearest. The perfect way to tackle your skin's '
oil spills is a daily / nightly application of a shine defeating
defense treatment that will curb too-active sebaceous glands. The
treatment products for this will keep the right level of moisture in
your skin and give it a matte finish. Make sure that these products
contain either salicylic acid or other oil-blotting components.
Soap and water treatment is not
necessarily the answer to oily skin, but if you need that feeling of
newly washed skin for real freshness, try out Estee Lauder's
Self-Foaming Face wash, a deep cleansing gel which reduces surface
oil and shine; or n Clinique's Refining Bar Cleanser, a clear yellow
cleansing bar 'e with similar properties. Then there is Lancome's
gentle purifying gel, clarifiance, which becomes a refreshing and
silky 'e mousse on contact with water. Soap-free and oil-free, it is
also enriched with soothing extracts of seaweed. Then there is Nivea
Visage Foaming facial wash, which with contact with water turns into
foam leaving skin refreshed. Also recommended is Vitamin C foam
wash, and Gentle Aqua cleansing Wash both from Gamier. And from Body
Shop do try the Tea Tree Oil facial wash and the Pineapple facial
wash, which are specially formulated for oily skin.
