Tips For Moisturizing Oily Skin

In several of our previous articles we’ve mentioned the importance of moisturizing oily skin. Many women are making mistakes by believing that oily skin shouldn’t be moisturized. We’ve already talked about how wrong this is, so here we bring you a few tips for moisturizing oily skin.

Exfoliate – It’s very important to exfoliate your dead skin. If you don’t do that, you’re increasing the risk of acne. Exfoliating once in a week should be more than enough.

Oil-free products – The best moisturizer for oily skin is the one that’s lightweight, non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t clog your pores) and oil-free. Maybe you’ll spend more time searching for this type of product, but it will be definitely worth it.

Routine – It’s very important to set your own skincare routine. Cleanse, treat and moisturize your skin in the end. Try to apply topical products that treat or prevent acne. Daily lotion is also helpful when you’re having problems with redness and irritation.

Sunscreen – During the summer the needs of our skin change. So if you want to keep your skin healthy, use sunscreen in combination with moisturizes. And this is important for all skin types, not only for oily skin.

Keep it cool – Skin and hot water are not good friends. Although a hot shower seems like a good idea to you, your skin won’t like it. Try to avoid hot water, and your skin will be grateful. Water hotter than 37oC (100oF) will damage your skin and cause problems. Temperature from 30 – 35oC (85 – 95oF) is perfect if you want to keep your skin healthy and well hydrated.
