Let's Talk - Oily Skin

Skincare is so important, if want good skin you must look after it! It's also so important before any makeup application if you want to have a flawless base and to make your makeup last all day this plays the biggest role.

Over the next couple of weeks I am going to do in-dept posts about each and every skin type, everything you need to know about your skin type, how to care for it, and what products I would recommend that work for that skin type, so I really hope you guys enjoy and this helps you out, today's post will be all about OILY SKIN

Oily skin is caused by overactive sebaceous glands, which means that it produces more oil than normal. This oil can be heredity and can be affected by many things such as diet, hormone levels, stress etc. 
Oily skin has very enlarged pores. It feels greasy and looks very shiny. If you have oily skin you will be prone to acne breakouts and blackheads 

Caring for your skin 

Everyday Morning Skincare 
Step 1 - CLEANSE 
Always cleanse your face in the morning before you apply any makeup. This will remove all the dirt off your face from the night before.

Step 2 - TONE  
Once you have dried your face after cleansing use an appropriate toner, It removes the excess dirt and oil that your cleanser did not pick up.  

Most important step in any skincare, even if you have oily skin you must moisturiser, just use an oil free one.

Everyday Night Time Skincare 

Step 1 - CLEANSE
If you have makeup on from that day, you dont always have to use a face wipe to remove it, it is actually healthier for your skin to remove any makeup by cleansing not with a face wipe as face wipes can be harsh on the skin.

Step 2 - TONE
This will take off the excess makeup that is has sank within your pores.

Step 3 - SERUM
A serum will help reduce oil, Believe it or not serums and oils are actually great for oily skin because oil eliminates oil. Try to use a serum most nights before going to bed  

again use an oil free one.

Every 3 - 4 day Night Time Skincare  

Step 1 - CLEANSE
Cleanse like you normally would.

This should be done every 3 to 4 days to remove any dead skin. Do not do this everyday as an Exfoliant can be very harsh on the skin and can make the become sensitive.

Step 3 - TONE
After you wash your exfoliant off, go in with a toner to help remove the excess dirt and exfoliant that was left on the skin.

Step 4 - MASK
For oily skin it is more beneficial to use a clay mask and to use it once or twice a week. A face mask will pull out all the dirt from under your skin and clean out your pores.

Step 5 - TONE
After the mask is off tone your face so it will allow all your pores to close.

Step 6 - SERUM
As I said above try to apply serum as often as you can because it will help reduce oil and use especially after applying a lot of products on your skin.

After putting so much product on your skin you need to apply a good oil free moisturiser to put hydration back into the skin.

Step 8 - EYE CREAM
If your young you should still use an eye cream because around your eyes the skin is much thinner, and needs to cared for just like the rest of your skin.

• If you want to control your skin you must carry out a good skincare routine which should be done morning and night.
• Gels and Lotions are best for oily skin.
• Always wash hands before cleansing 
• Use appropriate products for your skin type
• Wash your face with warm water. 
• Face mask 2 times a week.
• Face Scrub 3-4 times a week.

Skincare Advice 
• Drink plenty of water, im sure all of you would know already that water is the best thing for your skin and your body, but if you did not know water helps to detoxify and remove waste, so if you want good healthy skin make sure you get at least 8 glasses of water a day.

• Make sure you get a least 8 hours of sleep a night because when you are sleeping new cells are formed, waste is removed (which is why you would go straight to the bathroom when you wake up) and then the skin prepares itself for the day ahead. 

• Use a foundation or primer with an SPF everyday!!! if not you can just use a sunscreen before your primer or foundation. 

• Eat a healthy diet, make sure you get enough nutrients into your body. If you do not have a healthy diet then you cannot expect to have good skin. Eating to much sugar and greasey foods will always cause breakouts, but yes you should always treat yourself every once and while.
• If you suffer with Acne or very bad breakouts, go to your doctor and they should be able to help you to a certain extent like give you some acne medication.
