Those of you with oily skin have a lot more concerns, especially when you’re younger. As you mature, it has a tendency to balance itself out. This type of skin comes with some challenges such as excessive oil and pimples. Some of you could compete with a light bulb, your shine is so bright. The good news, is that with the appropriate skin care regimen, there will be little or nothing to worry about.
It’s important for you to have a skin care regimen to help with your shine. Here are a few skin care tips to help you manage your richly-melanated and oily skin.
But just before we share all of the tips and routines, let’s take a look at what contributes to oily black skin.
With all of the misconceptions about your skin and a skin care regimen, natural skin care products, for black women with oily skin will work best. A simple regimen to be followed morning and evening in order to keep the skin healthy and oil-free.
Wash your face in the morning. While a lot of you will choose to use soap. There are soaps that will help minimize oil. At the same time, soaps can cause your skin to dry out. A mild cleanser that won’t cause your skin to dry out or cause irritation, will be best. Cream or foam cleansers will do a great job, especially those that contain green tea.
There are also essential oils-based cleansers with activated charcoal that work well for oily and acne challenged skin. The oils and charcoal work together to remove the toxins and minimize oil build up.
After cleansing, apply a toner. The toner will help you stabilize and keep your skin hydrated. It will also help you remove some dirt that your cleanser couldn't take out. However, your toner shouldn't have to do the work of your cleanser.
A word of caution though! Avoid heavy alcohol based toners. Rather, go for toners with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients like Vitamin C (ascorbate). Toners containing alcohol may cause more oil to surface on your skin.
Night routine is a suitable time to add a special treatment to your skin care regimen. You can treat your oily black skin with clay or honey masque. The clay masque will help remove excess oil and damaged skin cells. Honey masque will help to hydrate your skin and brings out your skin’s inherent moisture.
You may also include exfoliating agents like glycolic acid or products with jojoba wax beads to help stabilize your skin’s oil production and keep your skin nourished. Meanwhile, avoid using exfoliating scrubs like almond and peach scrubs. They can be harsh on your skin.
There's help for your oily black skin and there are products to help you minimize the shine. While your face might be your focus, your neck should not be left out. A good skin care regimen can radiate healthy skin, and total body wellness.
Use products formulated with you in mind for cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and treating your skin.
