Bad Acne – Oily Skin Facial

Having bad acne can be a drag that doesn’t make a person feel very happy.  The good news is that it draws your attention to your face, and helps a person stay motivated to do the proper skin care that so many other people neglect to do. Proper skin cleansing should be a part of everyone’s routine, but lots of people let this part of their beauty care slide.

Your dermatologist may have a skin care regime in mind for you. Be sure to consult with your doctor to clarify your questions and concerns, and then proceed as directed.

There are many ailments that affect the skin.  Blemishes, dryness, wrinkles and fine lines are just but a few of the things some of us have to struggle with on a daily basis.  A skin condition that gets little attention is oily skin surface on the face. Oily skin makes for shininess and a difficult canvass for applying makeup as the oil seeps through the makeup causing the hassle of having to retouch your makeup often.  If you have a combination skin types or dermatological conditions, this makes your skin even more difficult to manage because you might have to moisturize the dry areas and this will make oily areas even more oily if you do not use a proper moisturizer.

There are many ways to treat oily skin and one of those ways is with an oily skin facial.  There are two main ways to reap the benefits of a facial.  One way is to go to a salon or day spa which can end up costing quite a bit of money. The other approach is to create a relaxing spa experience for yourself at home.

A person can purchase the personal care beauty products that are used for oily skin facials online. Typically, a facial entails massaging, steaming, exfoliating, toning and moisturizing.  When buying the products for your facial, make sure you buy products that have ingredients targeted to your skin type, but also confirm that the products are gentle enough for the delicate skin on your wonderful face.  Some ingredients upon occasion may be so harsh that they may end up drying out even the most oily skin and this might contribute to causing more blemishes, redness, or peeling that is not the goal.

The first step in a good oily skin facial is massaging.  You can massage your face with your hands or with specially made products that come with various brushes to open pores and get the circulation flowing.  Essential oils are optional but will make your face massage more relaxing.  The next step in your facial is the steaming process.

Fill a bowl with steaming hot water and lean over it with a towel over your head.  The steam will open your pores and bring any dirt and oil that’s deep in your pores to the surface, making it easier to wash it away in the next step which is exfoliating.

Your exfoliating scrub should be gentle, but lightly abrasive enough to lift dirt and remove dead skin from the surface. Keep the motion sweetly gentle enough that it does not irritate the skin.

Next, it is a good idea to apply a thin mask.  Mud masks are generally enjoyed by all and generally the mask is left on for fifteen minutes or until it hardens.  The mask will remove left over dirt and oil and tighten pores.

After your mask, you are ready to apply your toner. This will get rid any lingering product or dirt left on the face and tighten pores as well.  Even though you have oily skin, it is still important to do the final step of your oily skin facial.  Moisturizer will sooth your skin and even skin tone.  Applying it frequently will keep wrinkles at bay and reduce any fine lines.

Many of the products you can buy at your local drug store can also be made at home with ingredients that are already in your pantry and refrigerator.  Tomatoes, oatmeal and apple cider are just a few of the ingredients that are known to be helpful in treating oily skin. Purchasing the home spa beauty products may be a little simpler and give you a more predictable result each time.

This kind of loving cleanse for your face keeps it clean and, so to speak, lets acne know that it’s time to move on.

Oily skin, believe it or not, does have an advantage.  You will be happy to know that people who have chronically oily skin in their youth seem to have smoother skin when they get older.  It is said that oily skin rarely wrinkles and fine lines are a rarity.  Something to look forward to.
