I know many people have issues with the amount of oil secretion on their face. Well, I’m one of them too. In this post, i’d reveal some of my go-to ways of preventing excess oil on my face. ° Reduce the amount of oily edibles you take in. These includes; groundnuts, stew (Nigerian), fried plantain, akara, etc ° Wash your face every morning and evening. ° Always carry your choice of makeup wipes or soft tissue paper in your bag. This comes in handy for damping your face during the day, softly, especially your T-zone. It absorbs the oil which sets your face long enough till you are ready to touch-up or wash your face. ° Moisturizers:”People who have oily skin often steer clear of moisturizers, worrying that they’ll make their skin look even shinier,” Kazin says. That’s a bad idea. “Even oily skin needs to be moisturized to look its best,” she says. To avoid an oily sheen, choose an oil-free moisturizer. Vary the amount you apply depending on whether the area tends to be dry or oily. ° Facial treatments like masks and clays can be reduced to once a week or to special events. It’s not an everyday thing like we thought when we were growing up. ° Find out when your face secrets more oil. For some, it’s there hormones, season, weather, etc ° Talk to a dermatologist.
