Oily Skin Questions

I'm 22 year old female.in the summer I get oily t zone and rest of the face is normal. Sometimes pimple pops up here and there.in winter there is no such problem because my skin gets dry. So should I use a salicylic acid containing face wash for summer or a gentle one? Will it dry out my skin? Or an aha 6% cream will be better exfoliator for my skin type rather than bha?

Hello lybrate-user! the symptom which you are mentioning here seems to be a very common skin problem suffered by most of the teenagers. You can use salicylic acid face washes in summer also but in case you are facing dryness, use non comedogenic moisturiser after wash. Try to post pictures for better understanding and guidance.

Dear lybrate-user, you can apply clindamycin based cream day time and apply benzoyl peroxide 2.5 based cream with moisturizer at night time with some care. Drink lemon water once day. I hope you find this information helpful. If this does not relieve you can send me photos of the affected area for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

1.Fresh aloe vera can be used on open pores as it will help hydrate your skin and tighten it. Use aloe vera juice/gel from its leaf (fresh), not from readymade gels available in market. Remove skin of an aloe vera leaf. Take /scoop out gel. Apply this gel to your skin. Wash with plain water after an hour. Or keep it overnight. 2.Banana—run the inside of banana peel against your skin. Wash it after 10-15 minutes 3.Cleanse regularly with a mild cleanser twice a day to keep the pores clean. 4.Exfoliate on a regular basis to remove the dead skin. 5.A deep-pore cleansing once a month will keep the pores clear. 6.Remove your makeup before sleeping. 7.Use lukewarm water rather than hot water to wash your face. 8.Don’t squeeze blackheads or pimples. 9.Eat more fruits and vegetables. 10.Stay hydrated.

1. Wash regularly --washing regularly can reduce the amount of oil on the skin. Wash with a gentle soap and warm water 2. Use a toner--astringent toners that contain alcohol tend to dry out the skin. U should test out any new toner on a small patch of skin to avoid potential irritation. 3. Pat the face dry--when drying the face after washing and using toner, people should gently pat their skin dry with a soft towel. This should be done with care, however. Pulling down on the skin with a towel, or using a rough washcloth, is not advised, as it may stimulate the skin to create more sebum. 4. Use blotting papers-- blotting papers will not treat the sebum production in the skin, but they can be used to lift excess oil off the skin throughout the day to make it appear less shiny. 5. You can apply aloe vera juice/gel from its leaf (fresh), not from ready made gels available in market. Remove skin of an aloe vera leaf. Take /scoop out gel. Apply this gel to your skin. Wash with plain water after an hour. Also stay hydrated, avoid greasy foods and trans fats, and to eat a well-rounded diet full of whole foods.

Dear lybrate-user, there are some causes for acne (pimples):-excess production of oil, excessive hormonal activity, diet,and stress. Effective treatment available for pimples. You can use salicylic acid based face wash. Wash your face 2 times a day and you can apply benzoyl peroxide based cream on your face at night time with noncomedogenic moisturizer some care. And day time you can use clindamycin based gel. Drink lemon water once day. If this does not relieve you can send me photos of the affected area for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
