1. WASH YOUR FACE:
It seems obvious, but many people with oily skin don’t wash their face daily. If your skin’s oily, you should wash your face twice a day.
2. BLOTTING PAPER:
These thin, small papers won’t prevent your sebaceous glands from going into overdrive, but they’ll allow you to blot excess oil from your face to help minimize shiny, greasy skin. These are inexpensive and available over the counter.
An astringent is another good way to control oil. Astringents help remove excess oil from the skin and tighten the pores.
Exercising daily or working out increases the blood flow and helps nourish skin cells. It also opens clogged pores which in turn helps in removing toxins. Drinking 5-6 glasses of water daily also helps in flushing toxins out of the body.
5. PAT YOUR FACE:
When drying the face after washing and using toner, people should gently pat their skin dry with a soft towel.
