There are some tips – even in advance – that protect against oily skin and shine.
The hardest challenge these days in the heat is to seek the next refreshment. And for the whole body skin. The sweat can be uncomfortable everywhere, many are currently prone to the shiny skin – especially in the T-zone.
This is quite normal and is reinforced by make-up again. Fortunately, you do not have to dunk your face hourly into a bucket of ice water to get rid of the shine.
1. USE A WASH GEL WITH SALICYLIC ACID
The skin tends to break out in heat and sweat. This means pimples and blackheads in the T-zone. Now, it makes sense to put on gentle washing gels, which cleanse the pores and sebaceous glands.
For mild acne and especially combination skin, you should, however, make sure that the skin does not dry out with aggressive acne products. Salicylic acid wash gels are the key to refreshed and cleansed skin. The ingredient ensures that the oil in the pores is reduced without drying out the skin.
2. TINTED DAY CREAM INSTEAD OF FOUNDATION
Especially in the sweltering heat, the foundation can feel very heavy on the skin. In addition, it clogs the pores, which produce even more oil.
Therefore, try switching to a tinted day cream. You do not feel it and still conjures up a beautiful complexion. If you still want to help the natural tan, powder the zones that tan the sun the fastest (hairline, cheekbones, Nose Bridge) with a little bronzer.
3. EXFOLIATE ONCE A WEEK
Warning, just because your skin is oily, you do not have to scrub it off with an aggressive scrub. Put on a gentle enzyme peeling that is so gentle on the skin that you can use it regularly.
Enzymes are molecules that make the skin regenerate faster and speed up the removal of skin deposits. They not only cleanse the skin but simultaneously counteract skin aging.
4. THE MORE SUNSCREEN, THE BETTER
According to dermatologists, a healthy dose of sunscreen – about a teaspoon for the face – helps to control oily skin. Studies have shown that skin is deprived of water in the sun, increasing the size of the sebaceous glands.
The consequence is a shiny skin. Put on sun creams especially for the face, which feel light and pleasant on the skin.
5. ADHERE TO THE RIGHT DIET
Cocktails are perhaps what we crave on hot nights, but they do not help to regulate the oil production of the skin. Instead, they make the blood vessels of the skin expand and you begin to sweat.
As a compromise: Treat yourself to a drink in the evening and reduce spicy food. Which foods inhibit oil production? Anything high in Vitamin A content, such as carrots, cantaloupe melons, and spinach.
6. STAY HYDRATED
Drinking a lot, a liquid-giving day cream and facial thermal water are the keys to the healthy and hydrated skin.
7. BLOTTING PAPER WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT
With oily, shiny skin, blotting paper, which you should always wear in the summer, will help you immediately. Just dab on the oily parts of the face, which remain dull and “dry”.
Particularly suitable are blotting papers with nourishing ingredients, such as tea tree oil, which simultaneously inhibits sebaceous gland production.
8. PUT ON A CLARIFYING MASK
After exfoliation, a mask of healing clay or salicylic acid can additionally regulate the production of oil. After that, the skin feels fresh and cleansed.
9. AT NIGHT, LESS IS MORE
Change her beauty routine before going to bed in the summer. If you’ve been using a cream, put on a lotion. Use a lotion, now put on a serum. And save on creaming the particularly oily areas. This allows the skin to breathe overnight and clean itself.
10. INTEGRATE A TONER
Which product cannot be dispensed with in the heat is the toner. She helps regulate oil production. Products with lactic acid dry out oily skin and prepare it for additional layers of care products and makeup.
