Beautification Tip Day
Apologies: I used to put prices as a service for those who wanted to know, but I no longer do it. ^__^ Has this happened to you? You wash your face thoroughly, apply cleansing masks regularly, deep cleanse, exfoliate, apply cleansing toners, use blackhead extractors, etc, etc and yet, you feel like your skin is getting oilier and oiler, despite what you do? Sometimes, the oil also seems clogged up in the pores and your skin feels rough to touch? Recently, this happened to my skin and I couldn't fathom what was wrong! I actually put off applying the heavier lotions and creams that I used to apply. Yet, my skin felt super oily. Oil was emerging from pores I didn't use to see before. At one point, I thought I was experiencing some hormonal changes. However I discovered something by experience. One evening, I decided I needed to just use my hydrating sheet mask as I started seeing dry lines on my skin, despite all the oil that was pouring out of my skin. And you know what? My skin returned to normal!! Yep, my skin plumped up and the lines were less prominent the next day. Best of all, the oil field that my face had become stopped producing and slowly returned to normal. I've read that it's possible to over-stimulate your skin's oil production by drying it out too much. Every skin needs hydration and if you dry out your skin, the skin will try to compensate by producing more oil. Now, why didn't I remember that before I started panicking and using clay masks by the bucket? If you skin is behaving very oily, try introducing some hydration. Either in the form of an oil-free moisturiser/serum or using oil-free masks with lots of watery hydrating serums. Oil-free because, you don't need to introduce more oil to your oily or acne-prone skin. Additionally, drinking water and eating juicy fruits and vegetables will also hydrate your skin from the inside out. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
