5 Senses - Skin Cleanser
To fight this condition, it’s important we investigate what causes oily skin and the natural remedies that will keep it looking its best.
Most of us can relate to that irksome feeling of pressing your face to a window and leaving behind a “face fingerprint” in grease, or feeling like your face is always shiny. No amount of blotting with paper (which, by the way, is a myth) or washing our face seems to make any sort of difference. So we naturally scrub our faces more, buy new products and pray that our skin magically dries out. Little do we know that the products themselves as well as the daily foods we eat are what's contributing mostly to our oily skin. While we can't completely get rid of the possibility for oily skin, there are some environmental factors we can take out of our daily lives, as well as natural herbal to lessen the blow. It's time to learn what causes oily skin.
Causes for oily skin
The most common cause for oily skin, unfortunately, is genetics. The second most common cause for oily skin is over-washing your face with soaps and creams. By drying out your face, your skin produces more oil than necessary to make up for this and the cycle repeats. So stop washing your face so often, because even though a greasy face makes you want to clean your skin, it's not helpful. The third biggest cause is seasonal changes, which can also have a hand in making your pores work overtime as changing temperatures dry out your skin. In an effort to make up for the dry skin, your already oily skin creates more oil, contributing to the issue at hand.
Since neither of these sound like an easy fix, it's better to focus on eating plan and natural remedies that are a lot easier to manage.
