Oily Skin - How To Treat It?

Oily skin is a result of overactive sebaceous glands that produce excessive oil, thus giving the skin its characteristic greasy look. Oily skin is usually caused by a number of factors such as stress, food, genetics and hormonal changes in the body. Blackheads, whiteheads and acne are some complications that can result from skin.

It is important to take care of oily skin to prevent breakouts. Mentioned below are 10 tips to assist you in your skincare regimen:


1. Use warm water to clean your skin
Cleaning your face with warm water opens up the pores and clears the dirt from; thus removing the layer of oil on the face more effectively than cold water. 


2. Face masks
You may use face masks such as sandalwood or fuller earth to get rid of the excessive oil on the skin. In addition to removing oil, it also cleans and removes impurities from the skin.


3. Limit scrubbing
You should restrict exfoliating your face 2-3 times a week as too much exfoliation may result in excessive oil production. Over scrubbing may cause the skin to lose its natural oils and turn dry.


4. Use a toner
You may apply toner on the skin regularly for its astringent properties that help in cooling and soothing the skin. It also reduces pore size which thus decreases oil production.


5. Diet
Diet plays an important role in the health of your skin, so consuming too many oily and fried foods can increase the chances of getting acne and pimples on your skin. Eat more vegetables and fruits to keep your skin healthy.


6. Stay hydrated
Drinking water regularly helps in replenishing the lost fluids from your body and it also improves overall body health. 


7. Use medicated pads
To freshen up your face, use wet tissues or medicated pads to soak up the oil which shall help in freshening up your face.


8. Choose makeup wisely
It is not recommended to use heavy makeup if you have an oily skin. Instead use water based makeup that is light and oily skin friendly.

I had oily skin before, but it changed to dry skin from about 3 years ago. I have some skin problems - 1. I have very strong itchiness in groin area if it is sweaty and hot in that area. 2. I have small pimple like structures on my tummy, thighs, and groin. They are not exactly pimple because it doesn't hurt at all. Unless I pull hairs on them. The main problem is that I think it is not normal to have them. In my groin area they are a little bigger than thighs and tummy. 3. Can you tell me some very effective ways to increase my eyesight. I have specs of 2.25 in one eye and 2.00 in another. I started jogging 3-7 km per day early morning from 23 dec 2017 and is continuing. 4. Can I do intermittent water fasting. Like every tuesday. For example - I stopped intake of any type of food at 10 pm. On monday and started taking fruits on 9 am on thursday. Total of 35 hours. In between I take water every 1 hour to 1.5 hours. 5. I have hair fall problems. Means I have very few hairs left.
