Introduction to oily skin and acne
People who have naturally oily skin tend to have a lot more problems with acne while growing up. This is because the oil on the skin gets inside the pores of the skin and clogs them, which results in serious acne problems.
Therefore it is not only important to constantly clean the skin of the bacteria that has accumulated, but also to get rid of the oil and other impurities as well.
People with oily skin should be washing their faces more regularly, at least three times a day. They should also be using oil-free cleansers that are gentler on the skin generally. This will help to remove the oil, dead skin cells and all other substances that can cause a clogging of the pores.
It is of utmost important to get the bacteria that cause the acne out of the pores, because, when bacteria get into the pores, pimples are created.
The more care a person puts into their skincare, the better chances they will have to avoid acne problems.
Tips for people with oily skin
People who have naturally oily skin need to make sure that they are not using skincare products that contain oil. They also need to avoid eating oily and fatty foods, especially junk food and fried food.
After washing the skin, it is of equal importance to rinse the face off well, because the residue that is left behind from the cleaning products can also clog the pores. After cleaning the face, rinse it at least three times as well.
If a person not only has oily skin, but oily hair as well, they also need to make sure to wash the hair every day and to keep it off the skin, namely the forehead, because the oil from the hair will block the pores as well.
People must also make a habit of not touching their skin with dirty hands throughout the day. The hands carry huge amounts of germs and bacteria and they will make the infected pimple even worse when coming into contact with them.
For people with oily skin especially, it is of vital importance to drink a lot of water throughout the day, at least 10 to 12 full glasses.
It is also a good idea to add some lemon juice into the water in order to help the body get rid of toxins more successfully. The toxins increase the presence of bacteria.
