Facial for Oily Skin – Easy Three-Step Program To Visible Results


Is your oily skin making you crazy? You know what I mean: it looks and feels thick, and when you touch it, it leaves an oily feeling on your fingertips. Perhaps it’s even full of impurities like blackheads and blemishes, even though you’re not a teenager anymore? If this is you, I’m guessing you’re looking for tips on how to make your skin less oily, like how to do facials for oily skin.

Indeed giving yourself a facial is a really good idea if you have an oily complexion. If you concentrate on deep cleansing when you give your oily skin a facial, you’re likely to see improvement instantly. And the best thing is, if you use the right products and stick with the program, the changes will be lasting!

Here’s a three-step program to an effective facial for oily skin:

1. Cleanse your skin thoroughly – But forget harsh, chemical-filled cleansers that will only harm your skin and could make it even oilier in the long run. I am talking about those cleansing washes which promise to get rid of your skin impurities overnight, or those specially targeted for oily skin. Unless these washes are all-natural and without alcohol, they are too hard on your skin, no matter how oily it is. Choose a natural facial wash instead, one without alcohol but with ingredients with natural antibacterial and pH balancing properties, like Manuka Honey. If it fills these criteria, it doesn’t matter if it’s for oily skin or for all skin types, it will help your skin anyway.

2. Use a deep cleansing mask with Kaolin clay.

This is a wonderful natural clay which is really the key ingredient in any good mask for oily skin. What it does it absorbs oil and gently removes grime from your skin, opening up your pores and allowing them to heal. Kaolin clay’s softly drying and disinfectant qualities also help soothe away blemishes and inflammations. It can also prevent new skin problems from appearing in the first place. Massage the mask onto your skin and let it work as long as advised on the instructions, then wash it off with warm water.

3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Even if your skin is oily, it doesn’t mean you don’t need to moisturize it, especially if you are past your twenties and are starting to see the first fine lines on your skin. After deep cleansing your skin give it the nourishment it needs – use a natural skin cream with ingredients that moisturize, stabilize the oil balance of your skin and fight the signs of aging all at the same time. Look for one with Maracuja and Bababssu oils, these are wonderful in moisturizing your skin without adding any oiliness to it.
