5 Common Mistakes That Makes Your Face Oily

Having an oily skin is just one of the common and major skin issues many people face. Aside from oiliness, this also leads to  acne, blackheads, clogged pores and breakouts.

Proper skincare is the only way we can get out of oiliness however, there are common things we usually do that contributes to production of excess oil.

Here are the 5 usual mistakes that we should avoid:

1. Not Relaxing

One of the causes of excess oils on the skin is stressed. If you live a stressful life you are more prone to oily skin. When you are stressed your sebaceous glands produce more oil due to the overproduction of cortisol in the adrenal gland. Try relaxing once in a while, go for a stress free me time or go out with your friends.

2. Relaying on a Cure

One cream is not enough to completely cure oily skin. The best way to handle it is learning to combat it. If you produce excessive oil always bring a blotting paper to fight off oil throughout the day. Remove shine from your skin with matte powder when applying makeup.

3. Avoiding Cleansing Oils

People with oily skin avoid cleansing oils due to the belief that it would make your kin oilier. The truth is, some cleansing oils can actually help balance out the production of sebum of the skin. If you are still struggling with excess oil, then why not try ditching your cleansing foams with some cleansing oils. Ask about the cleansing oils that help lessen oil production.

4. Not Hydrating the Skin

A misconception when it comes to oily skin is to not apply moisturizer and topical hydration. It is believed to cause over production of oil on the skin. Neglecting applying hydrating serums or moisturizer on the skin can trick it into believing it is drying out causing it to produce more oil. 
Apply hydration creams and moisturizer, especially when the weather is too cold.

5. Using a Drying Cleanser

Most cleansers targeted for oily skin are a drying cleanser. This is usually made with ingredients that stops the production of oil in the skin. Excessive use of these types of cleanser will extremely dry the skin and make the skin produce more sebum. 

If you suddenly stop using these drying cleansers you will experience a sudden breakout. Try cleansers that are sulfate free. This cleans the skin through the pores without leaving the skin dry.
