So you have got the miraculous skin that will keep you young as long as you use the amazing ways to deal with oily skin.

  1. Salicylic Acid Cleanser

Foaming face washes are great to deep cleanse impurities from oily skin. But does it help to control oil afterward? No! Even it makes your skin more oily by stripping off all the oil from your skin which encourages the sebaceous gland to overflow oil in the skin. So your oily skin needs a cleanser that doesn’t only clean but also regulates oil secretion in the skin and face wash and cleaners that contain salicylic acid is great at it. 

  1. Clay Mask

Oily skin generally has enlarged pores that produce more oil and get stuffed with pollution, dirt, and dead skin cells which later becomes the cause of annoying bumps of whiteheads and blackheads. I know, as an oily skin beauty you are familiar with these frustrating bumps flare up on your skin for no reason.

But clay masks have got the solution for these skin problems. I’m sure you might have used a Multani Mitti face pack once in your life and had a great experience.

In spite of having tried to get treatment for oily skin, if you haven’t used toner yet. Girl! You are missing out on the most effective step that helps to control oil on your skin as well as saves your skin from breakouts, whiteheads, and blackheads.

Toner works as a protective shield on the skin that doesn’t let any dust, impurities, chemicals, or dead skin cells enter your skin pores as well as it maintains the optimal PH balance in the skin, as a result, your skin produces less oil.

  1. Blotting Paper

A great rescuer! Yes, Blotting paper is the best thing you can use to absorb extra oil without spoiling your makeup. At home, we have the option to wash our face when our skin becomes extremely greasy and gives an indication to us that if we don’t wipe out the oil it will create skin problems.

I know, you always take the indication seriously. But washing your face is not possible all the time. So keep the rescuer handy and just place the blotting paper on your skin and let it do all the magic itself.

  1. Vitamin -C Serum 

Do you want your skin not only to be oil-free but also lighter and brighter? If you do, Start using vitamin-C serum right away every night and wake up with oil-free, radiant skin.

  1. Ice Cubes

Refreshing cool ice cubes shrink the doors of skin pores and maintain the accurate PH balance in the skin which creates adverse conditions for the sebaceous gland to produce more oil.

If you want maximum benefits you can freeze green tea ice cubes. These amazing ice cubes contain anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that kill acne-causing bacteria right off and leave you with gorgeous skin throughout the day.

  1. Oil-Free Moisturizer

I know, already having an abundance of moisturization is over the top for you. But using the wrong moisturizer or not using moisturizer is also a cause of your skin being excessively oily.

Our skin’s natural oils differ from the artificial ones so you can literally trick your sebaceous gland to produce less oil by moisturizing your skin with an oil-free or water-based moisturizer.

Did you know that most skincare products contains 80-95% Water! Which requires additional chemical thickeners and more preservatives that don’t benefit your skin. Moreover, such a high level of water can be drying to skin.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics replace ordinary water with plants based ingredients like aloe vera and oils… our proprietary, skin-loving, four times boosted aloe-activated elixir, created from natural, sustainable aloe plants. It definitely calms, soothes, and hydrates skin. I’m Fabulous Cosmetics pair the aloe vera with potent ingredients like hyaluronic acid and plant-based collagen and peptides.

Anyone can use aloe vera?

Just by looking at Anis’s skin you can see she is using her own skincare line. Her skin is just flawless and glowing!

Your skin becomes oily when there is a lack of hydration in layers of the skin invisible to the eye. This causes your skin to over produce oils to compensate for the lack-thereof.  Aloe vera is quick absorbing, which prevents clogging of the pores. Applying aloe to the skin is like drenching your pores with the most natural feeling, meant-to-be hydration. Because even if you live in an area like Miami where it is hot and humid you need to hydrate your skin.

In addition to anti-inflammatory properties, there are antibacterial and antioxidant properties of aloe vera that make it effective as a topical treatment for acne.  Aloe vera also assists in the production of collagen in the skin, which is a protein that our bodies produce less and less over time. Aloe vera natural antibacterial properties keep the area clean, and the antioxidants help reduce scar formation and promote quicker healing.

Preservatives prolong the shelf life of a product and protect water-based products from contamination and microbial and mold growth. A preservative is a natural or synthetic ingredient that is added to a product to keep it safe from spoilage. Oils do not require preservatives because microbes cannot grow in a water-free environment. A necessary part of formulating, preservatives ensure the microbiological safety and stability of a product and prevent it from changing over time. Without preservation, your skincare product wouldn’t stay fresh, effective or safe to use for very long.

Traditional skincare products are loaded with artificial preservatives to help them remain fresh for the duration between the date of manufacture and the time you finish using it. Some commonly used chemical preservatives that safeguard against bacteria and fungi to extend the shelf life of a product are:

  • Organic acids, such as benzoic acid, sorbic acid, levulinic acid, anisic acid
  • Aldehydes, such as formaldehyde
  • Glycol ethers, such as phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol
  • Isothiazolinones, such as methylisothiazolinone
  • Parabens, such as methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben.

Chemical preservatives work by irritating the cell walls of bacteria and entering and killing them as a result, That’s why they are effective but that’s also why they can be hazardness. Chemical preservatives can’t distinguish between bacterial or human cells. If you’re applying to your face skincare products everyday, these harsh chemicals can get absorbed and build up in your body over time.

Well known Preservative like parabens have been widely used as the go-to preservative since the 50’s. With scientific studies generating concern over their effect on the environment and health, parabens have become quite the controversial ingredient. And for good reason: Methylparaben, with its reputation for being an endocrine disruptor, has no place in any skincare product.

This nasty chemicals aren’t just hard to pronounce, they’re very hard on skin. Synthetically produced preservatives may be great at keeping bacteria away but they’ve also been linked to allergic reactions, contact dermatitis, irritation and lots of serious health problems.

PLANTS IN SKINCARE

Did you know that plants make such ideal skincare ingredients? They are able to be a powerful preservative and skin-restorative at the same time. Plants continuously have to fight off different microbes including bacteria and fungi in order to thrive in any environment. To protect themselves against pathogens, plants produce an arsenal of antimicrobial chemicals, antimicrobial proteins, and antimicrobial enzymes that serve as plant defense mechanisms. Botanicals also contain powerful antioxidants which also function as preservatives to prevent oxidation of the natural ingredients in a formula. plants are nourished by the pure mineral spring waters that flow through the mountains and nutrient-rich soils that have been untouched for centuries.

Smart brand like I’m Fabulous Cosmetics are using antioxidants and essential oils with preservative properties—such as turmeric, rosemary, oregano, thyme, and tea tree—and they’re even redesigning packaging to limit exposure to air and patented Miron violet glass packaging to keep the active ingredients alive and super fresh, Dr. Lyrac, says.

Safe preservatives list includes:

Food grade preservatives (like potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate); alcohols (organic ethanol, grape alcohol, benzyl alcohol, and witch hazel); and a short list of others that are sourced from plants (like gluconolactone, ethylhexyglycerin, triiostearyl citrate) and some that are synthetic but non-toxic preservatives, like dehydroacetic acid.

Beware of “greenwashing,” or brands that represent themselves as cleaner than they are. One sign? They say they are not using parabens but instead are using formaldehyde slow-releasers:  They appear as quaternium-15, DMDM hydantoin, imidazolidinyl urea, and diazolidinyl urea.

Cleanse Twice A Day (The Right Way for You) Cleansing should be a daily habit, of course, but no matter your typical skincare routine, a skin detox requires cleansing morning and night. … If you have drier skin, an oil cleanser in the morning and foam cleanser at night will be cleansing, gentle, and hydrating.
