Care For Acne With Oily Skin

Oily skin causes many problems for the afflicted, not the least of which, is being susceptible to bouts of acne. Natural body oils are produced by the sebaceous glands to lubricate the skin and keep it supple, when too much oil is produced the result is an oily complexion. This condition by itself, is by no means serious, however extra care is needed to wash away excessive oil deposits in order to keep the skin looking fresh, and to prevent skin pores from becoming clogged with dead cells.

Clogged pores prevent the free flow of sebum, or oil, to the skin’s surface, this situation results in a build up of trapped oil that allows bacteria to breed and the development of acne pimples and skin eruptions. If this condition is not brought under control quickly it will ultimately lead to an extensive outbreak of common acne.

A good quality cleanser containing a mild astringent agent should be used to keep the skin free of excessive oil and dead cells. Of course, this does not mean to dry out the skin completely, our skin must retain a certain amount of fluid in order to keep supple and well toned. It is advisable to visit a qualified beauty consultant to have your skin checked. The consultant will be able to recommend the most suitable products for your skin condition. The cost involved is relatively minor considering the time saved by not having to shop around, and the cost of purchasing preparations that may be too harsh or otherwise unsuitable.

A daily routine must be established to keep the skin free of excessive oil. Gently wash with cool or lukewarm water twice a day, or more if you are in a hot, humid climate and prone to sweating. Another consideration is whether a moisturizer will need to be used in conjunction with the cleanser you are using to strike the correct balance in keeping the skin looking fresh and free of acne pimples.

Should an acne condition develop into an uncontrollable outbreak, consult a dermatologist for professional care and proper treatment.
