Problem – Oily Skin

If you are anything like me, you can deal with oily skin in a pinch.  However, when your skin is oily, as in the case of acne-prone skin, or overly shiny, as in the case of hyperpigmentation, the last thing you want to do is wash you face several times a day.

So what happens when you wash yourself in the morning, or even at night?  You are stripping away the natural oils that are on your skin.

This can lead to a number of conditions:

Enlarged poresStretch marksDry skin

In addition, washing your face removes the acid mantle (the mixture of natural oils on the skin’s surface).  In short, you are just asking for a herpes outbreak.

Stress also causes a chemical reaction called oxidation.  This is where your skin’s natural oil is destroyed by free radicals, which are manmade chemicals.

Excessive washing of the skin removes not only the natural oils, but the acid mantle as well.  In short, you are asking for a herpes outbreak.

Solution:But what can you do about it?

The answer is easier than you think.

Once you wash at night, just wash your hands and apply a gentle cold cream to neutralize the coldness and numb it a bit.  Be sure to moisturize before you go to bed, too.  Then, apply a lotion to your skin and use a night cream for oily skin.  The reverse order is necessary.

Every other week, use a deep pore cleanser, such as a mask should be sufficient.  If you are producing a great deal of oil, you can skip the creamy cleanser.  For dry skin, though, you want a cream that will remove some of the dry skin’s natural oils.

For people who have problems with excessive oiliness, and have sensitive skin, you should skip the abrasive cleansers.  The milder the cleanser, the better.

Regular exfoliation is a must.  To be effective, any exfoliation should be done only once a week, and no more than that.  Exfoliating too often may cause excessive dryness, which in turn will lead to the aforementioned problems.

For evening out your skin tone and getting rid of dark spots and pimples, you can use a night cream for oily skin.  The best cream for this job will contain coenzyme Q10, vitamin E, functional keratin and natural vitamin A.

These ingredients will not only protect your skin against genes and chronic sun exposure, but they will restore the skin’s moisture balance.  Any tightening effect will be noticed as soon as you start to notice softer skin.

While the above ingredients are great for oily skin, if you are noticing other effects, too, you might want to try one of the following:

Finally, be sure to treat all of your skin well.  Don’t use cleansers that are harsh on the skin and make it dry.  Don’t wash and towel dry too often and keep those hands away from your face.  Also, be sure to moisturize your skin while the skin is still damp.

If you have oily skin and sun exposure problems, you may want to try one of the following:

Remember to moisturize your skin while the skin is damp and after you have rinsed.  Then, apply a sun protection product and let it absorb into your skin.  If you want to stay away from chemicals, use a paraben free facial sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15.

The bottom line is this:  Whatever you put on your skin for a long period of time, you should be very careful to protect it.  Do not leave the house without moisturizing lotion, a sunblock or a night cream for oily skin.

What ingredients are included in herbal treatment for the skin?  They work with the rest of your skin’s health to enhance and nourish it.

Herbal skin care treatment may include such as:

Herbal treatment for dry skin is slightly different. It is often used to treat severely dry skin, and even though it might not be as moisturizing as herbal treatment for oily skin, it will do so anyway.  The moisturizing quality does not suffer with herbal treatment for dry skin.

When should you consider herbal treatment for the skin?  Extremely dry skin, to prevent dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, or to try to hydrate the skin after you have exfoliated.

Evening the skin is a great time, but it often doesn’t feel moisturized at all.  This is because it is draws its nourishment from the skin tissues below.
