OILY SKIN NATURAL CREAMS

Characteristics of oily skin creams

What is an oily skin?

Oily skin is that one that contains too much oil. Oily texture can be very easily appreciated to touch, besides it is often accompanied by pimples and skin spots. Oily skin has not usually got too many wrinkles, being usually rather smooth, due not only to skin fat acting as a "natural smoothing", but because of the presence of a fairly thick layer of fat in the subcutis or deeper layer of the skin.

How to take care of oily skin

This type of skin requires adequate nutrition. We must be very careful NOT not provide it to much fat, sugars and starches. A low-fat diet, is necessary to reduce the excess of sebum in oily skin, especially one in which vegetables are abundant.

Apart from the diet, it is also very important to provide this type of skin some treatments based on the adequate masks, massages or other remedies for oily skin.

The hydration process is used to retrieve the water loss, and the deficiencies of minerals and vitamins the skin may be suffering.

What are " day- creams"?

We use the so-called " day creams" to hydrate this type of skins. It is required to apply a day cream suitable to the characteristics of each skin.

For oily skin, a watery, low- fat day cream must be used, since this type of skin produces enough fat to protect itself. A cucumber -based cream and some cocoa butter cream could be used for such purposes.

The cream is applied after the cleaning process of the skin. To do this, spread the cream with the pulp of your fingers, in circular motion outward and upward.
