Oily Issues

by - August 08, 2017

Oily skin? Makeup looking shiny? Shinier than your highlighter? If you answered yes to all 3 questions, it’s possible that you could be experiencing oily skin symptoms. Having oily skin is not all bad but sometimes it takes over your emotions. I know the struggle. 

I remember when I had oily skin together with terrible acne. It cleared about 4 years ago (thanks to my dermatologist) but maintaining healthy skin has to be a part of your daily routine. The products I use, the food I eat, daily stress and water intake are important aspects to keeping my skin happy.

Lets break down oily skin symptoms.

Why do I suffer from oily skin?
- Hormones:
  As women our hormones are constantly changing, we can control this by taking supplements
  I use Primeve Plus (Evening Primrose Oil)
- Genetics

Your lifestyle can also play a part with oily skin;
- Lack of sleep
- Stress levels aren't controlled
- Sunscreen is not part of your daily routine.
- Makeup clogs pores and when you sleep with it on, you are causing the bacteria to grow.

How do I reduce oily skin?
- A consistent daily skin routine:
  This will depend on what works for your skin, keep in mind products that help prevent acne.
  About 3-4 times a week you should apply a mask or scrub on your face.
  I tried out a few products I had at home and here are my favorites;
  1. Aloe Unique Exfoliating Facial Scrub for all skin types- Specifically targets blemishes. 
  2. Aloe Unique Bitter Gel- Helps with skin that is prone to breakouts and blemishes
  3. Cell Tone Hydrating Facial Mask- Hydrates the skin. The Celltone Mask is part of a 6 Step skin care routine that combats problematic skin. 
  4. Bodyshop Ethiopian Honey Deep Nourishing Mask- keeps the skin moist and hydrated especially from acne scars. 
  5. Bodyshop Drops of Youth Sleeping Mask- Keeps the skin looking youthful.  
- A heathy diet

Be proud of your skin. Keep it healthy and feed it with love and happiness.
