Oily skin and acne is very common among teenagers. This is because the human body undergoes several hormonal changes starting from teenage and continues until the early 20’s. Oily skin and acne also attacks many women during their menstrual periods, menopause or even during pregnancy. Similarly some men also suffer the same due to the changing levels in the androgen hormone in their body. Following some easy skin care tips can help you to get rid of the extra oil from troubling you.
You should wash your face with cold water as frequently as possible. Take one leaf of an Aloe Vera plant, cut it and massage your face with its pulpy side for 3 to 4 minutes and wash off with cold water or rose water after half an hour. If you don’t have an Aloe Vera plant at home, buy one Aloe Vera gel and apply on your face 4 to 5 times a day. This will give a cool and refreshing feeling for your skin. You can also carry a travel pack of alcohol wipes so that you can clean your face immediately after you are being exposed to dust or heat. You can also massage your face with a mixture of almond powder and honey for 5 minutes before washing your face with cold water.
At night, when you relax and sleep, your skin also needs some relaxation and rest. It needs to get some fresh air and hence it is not good to apply any cream or moisturizer on your face at night. Instead, you can rub your face with some ice cubes which gives your face a cooling effect.
Take two ripe tomatoes and make a puree of it. This can be applied to your skin once or twice a week. Papaya is one of the fruits which have a cleansing effect. Applying the pulp of raw papaya on the face is a very good treatment for oily skin as it softens and removes the dead cells from your skin. Wash your face with a foaming face wash as it not only keeps the face moist but also removes the dust and dirt deeply.
If you have an oily skin, when you get old, you have less chances of getting wrinkles than people with normal or dry skin. Take some time to follow these simple skin care tips and look younger with a shiny glowing face!
