Home Made Remedial Tips for Oily Skin
Posted by Dr. Debraj Shome on October 28th, 2015
Many people have oily skin, and this is typically caused by the sebaceous glands excreting too much sebum. Oily skin is often blamed on genetics, but you can also have it due to hormonal changes and stress. Sebum is a waxy substance that protects the skin, but too much of it can cause the oily appearance and acne. Hence, you need to make sure that your skin is properly cleansed and oil production is contained or minimised.
Here are some tips and home remedies for oily skin:
Proper Washing Tips
Use the appropriate toner
After washing your face, moisten a cotton pad with distilled witch hazel, and dab it on your face. Focus areas where you usually experience oil secretions. Witch hazel has tannins, which provide an astringent effect to tighten the pores as it dries. Use this as toner twice a day for two or three weeks, and then reduce the usage to once a day.
Peppermint, sage, and yarrow have astringent properties, too. Make a homemade toner by putting a tablespoon of the herb of your choice in a cup before filling it to the top with boiling water, then steep for 30 minutes. Strain the liquid and cool it down before dabbing it on your face. Use a squeeze bottle to store leftovers, which can stay fresh for at least three days, as long as you store it at room temperature. You may keep it in the fridge to make it last for five days. It will feel cool on the face that way, too.
