Causes of oily skin

Oily skin is really frustrating. It is a result of excess sebum production. Sebum is a waxy, oily substance, secreted from the skin pores that protects and hydrates the skin. There can be many contributing factors for oily skin – 

  • The major cause of oily skin is genetics. If your parents had oily skin, chances are you’ll probably have one too.
  • Pollution can also make your skin oily.
  • Your lifestyle factors also can be one of the reasons.
  • Eating oily food regularly can cause oily skin.
  • Your skin can become oily depending on your age.
  • Skipping using moisturizer.
  • Internal hormones may play an important role in it. 

Whether your oily skin is caused by genetics or lifestyle, it is important to know how to get rid of excess oil and shed old skin cells naturally. There are a few different ways in which oily skin can be treated either naturally or through over-the-counter treatments. Once you’ve determined the cause of your oily skin, you’ll find it easier to get rid of it for good.

The Relation between acne and oily skin

The first thing you need to keep in mind is that there are no shortcuts to treat acne or pimples. You should take good care of your skin to prevent any acne breakouts. Oily skin is more prone to get acne. Here’s what you need to know about acne and oily skin – 

  • The skin is exposed to germs and dirt throughout the day. When germs and dirt enter our skin pores, it mixes up with the oil and results in infection.
  • You should not touch your face with unwashed hands because this will result in spreading the infection.
  • Cleansing is the first and vital step in taking care of this type of skin.

Best acne skincare routine

With simple pimple-free skin tips, including a thoughtful diet for acne skin, you can avoid acne or pimples from occurring. 

  • Hiding your skin under layers of makeup will not solve your problem. Makeup will only make your skin condition worse and will result in more acne and pimples. Try and use minimal makeup. Makeup should be applied after using moisturiser and sunscreen with a base of primer. It should be properly removed before going to bed. 
  • People with acne-prone skin should use a moisturizer with fewer oil contents. 
  • Use a gentle cleanser or face-wash to clean your face morning and night. You don’t necessarily need an acne-fighting face wash as they are very drying and harsh for the skin. Use ones that contain Salisilic instead. 
  • Use toner to remove excess oil, tone, and hydrate the skin.
  • Use acne treatment medications like creams, if prescribed.
  • Apply an oil-free moisturizer or gel to reduce dry and peeling skin. Also, use sunscreen to avoid damage due to sun exposure. 
  • Avoid having oily, fried or junk foods because these lead to acne or pimple breakouts. Do not eat processed foods because they can harm your skin forever.
