Oily Skin Good News

It is strikingly odd to those with oily skin, but they are the envy of many friends. Wondering why? Well, take a look at any friend who has oily skin. People with oily skin wrinkle less than others with dry or normal skin.

Oily Skin Cures

Home made treatments for oily skin are plentiful. Here is one of the easiest techniques suggested by Dermatologist. First, it is understandable that oily skin attracts dirt and grime, they find. Consequently, the dirt and grime builds up on the skin and magnifies the oiliness on the skin. Dermatologist suggest that people with oily skin should simply wash their face with a good cleanser two or three times per day to decrease the oiliness. Use a cleanser with benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or beta-hydroxy acid. These components reduce the oiliness in the skin. Remember to test the product before use to make sure that it does not irritate the skin further.

Products that contain alchohol make a good mild toner for the skin. Dermatologist also recommend using a product that contains salicylic acid which is good at reducing the amount of oiliness in the skin. Here is how to use the product. Use the toner only on the areas that are oily. Avoid using them on normal or dry skin areas. This might dry the skin out.

Medicated Pads
Dermatologist also recommend carrying around medicated pads or alchohol wipes to cleanse the skin during the day. This might seem like an extreme measure, but it helps to substantially keep the oiliness under control. There are also cosmetic towelettes on the market that quickly remove the oiliness.

Natural Oily Skin Scrub

Using a natural skin scrub that you can make is a good way to deeply cleanse the pores and remove oiliness. Here is a natural home made scrub that is good for oily skin. Warning: Do not use this scrub on irritated skin.

Natural Almond Honey Scrub
