JAKARTA - Having oily facial skin has a high risk of developing acne. Oily skin itself is caused by overactive sebaceous glands so that the sebum produced is too excessive.

This condition is common and often affects several people. Hormonal and genetic factors are the main causes of excess oil production, so they cannot be eliminated. Even so, if you have oily facial skin, you don't need to worry because you can prevent oily skin by avoiding the following things.

Use a strong toner

Toner is one of the most important beauty products for the face because it functions to restore the pH of the skin after washing the face. Using a toner can also help you reduce excess oil on your face. But the thing that must be considered when using a toner is to choose one that is lightly based and does not contain alcohol. Harsh toners can irritate the skin.

Do not wash your face after doing activities

After a day of activities outside, don't forget to wash your face immediately after returning home. Postponing washing your face can only cause dirt and dust to get deeper into your pores. For this reason, it is very important to wash your face after doing activities to remove the buildup of bacteria, dirt, dryness, dust, in the pores.

Put on heavy makeup

The thing that oily skin owners should not do is use thick makeup. The reason is, the pores will be clogged. Clogged pores will only make the sebaceous glands produce more oil. If the situation requires the use of makeup, it is better to use oil-free makeup. You can choose a matte finish and avoid oil or cream based makeup.

Clean the face with cream

Currently, many beauty brands release cream-based facial cleansing products. Actually, this product is specially designed for dry skin owners because the cream contains active ingredients that can moisturize the skin. If you use oily facial skin, it will only cause your skin to look more oily. We recommend that you use a cleaner with a lighter gel or micellar water texture.
