Say Goodbye To Oily Summer Skin
The heat of the summer sun brings us happiness, tan lines, and unfortunately, oily summer skin. No one wants to feel self-conscious about oily skin, so here are five tips to fight it this summer!
Drinking plenty of water is a generic rule that is always stressed for general well being, but it is especially helpful for keeping your skin oil-free. Having enough water flushes out toxins in your skin and prevents your face from producing excess oil.
Aloe vera is a magical plant that is great for after-sun care on those days when you get a little burned. The plant also has great drying properties that you can use to clear out your pores. For an oil-free day, apply as a mask in the morning and let dry for a few minutes before rinsing.
Oil Absorbing Pads:
Oil absorbing sheets and pads are wonderful to carry in your purse everywhere you go. Use them when you go to the bathroom and share the love with your friends. These are great because they can be used over your makeup without smudging it or removing it. It leaves your face feeling matte, clean, and ready for anything.
Baking Soda Mask:
This classic baking soda mask is great for relieving blackheads and neutralizing your skin to reduce excess oil. All it takes is about a tablespoon of baking soda and a splash of water, which should be mixed together until a light paste is formed. Apply to your skin and let it dry for 5-7 minutes. Gently rub the baking soda in light circles on your face to your skin and get rid of the gunk before rinsing clean and drying.
Be aware of the products that you put on your skin, such as lotions and hair products that can get onto your face. These can clog your pores and lead to an increase in oil production. Your diet can also be very influential on your skin. Try sticking with fresh fruits and vegetables, and avoid large amounts of dairy and greasy foods that can make you break out.
