Best Skin Care Routine for Oily Sky

Oily skin has many challenges to take care of like acne or shinny skin complex. Oily skin has large visible pores and pimples. Skin becomes shinier at the mid of the day. Our body naturally produces oil called sebum. The more sebum our skin produces, the bigger the oil gland gets, increasing the size of our pores.

Oily skin can be hereditary, but no doubt, it can be the result of hormones changes in your body like periods, pregnancy, fatty eating, UV-rays, environmental pollution, and other lifestyle choices. Here we will discuss the best skin care routine for oily skin. You can use these steps morning and evening for clean, healthy, pore-free, and shine-free complexion.

Cleansing of skin:

Having oily skin will tolerate more cleansing. Cleansing day and night is essential for oily skin. People have oily skin; they know that their skin is busy shedding and producing oils day and night. That is why start and end your day with cleansing. Start the morning with a gel or foam cleanser (cleanser that does not have larger particles). A gel cleanser is best for oily skin, and it helps to remove excess oil without stripping and dehydrating the skin. Use a cleaner and facewash which has the salicylic acid in it. It helps to clean oil and dead skin from the pores of the skin.

Apply toner:

Once your skin is clean from all dirt and oil, then apply toner. Toner helps to maintain the PH of the skin, which controls oil production. Toner will tighten your pores and remove the impurities from the skin. Try to ease your skin by using a toner that comforts the oily skin like aloe Vera, ginseng, or hyaluronic acid—rebalancing your skin naturally by herbal extracts, leaving skin feeling toned and clean.

Apply moisturizer:

Moisturizer is essential for all skin types. People with oily skin do not apply moisturizer because they think it will make their skin greasy. Oily skin needs to use a moisturizer like a gel moisturizer with water-like texture and lightweight because it contains a lower amount of oil and emulsifier. Every oily skin is different, so a little testing is recommended. Try different moisturizers, which makes your skin more comfortable then choose that moisturizer.

Apply sunscreen:       

When you are going outdoor, it is essential for your skin protection needs to wear sunscreen at least SPF30. Try to wear a daily moisturizer with your sunscreen so your skin will protect with UV-rays, and oil production will be less. Use sunblock that contains titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. Keep in mind the sunscreen is the final step in your skin care routine even in summers before applying makeup or primer. 😉

Conclusion:

Start managing your oily skin routine for healthy and clear skin. Make a habit of washing face after exercise, and in A.M and P.M., these are daily easy routine for cleansing, toning, moisturizing the skin both in morning and night. Washing your face after exercising reduces your skin oiliness and helps keep your skin clear and healthy. Stay healthy, stay happy 😊

Sun Safety Facts for Children and Parents

Some exposure to the sun is healthy for everyone. The sun is the primary source of vitamin D for the world, which is necessary for better calcium absorption and preventing depression. Too much sun, or failure to properly protect the skin can cause skin damage, eye damage and in some cases skin cancer.

The UVA rays of the sun are the cause of skin cancer and premature aging. The sun’s UVB rays are the cause of burns, cataracts and immune system damage. The sun also has UVC rays, but these do not reach the earth because of the ozone layer.

How the Skin Reacts to the Sun

The skin’s reaction to the sun is caused by a chemical called melanin. Melanin helps to protect the skin. The amount of melanin in people’s skin varies depending on skin tone. People with a fair skin tone have much less melanin than people with dark skin.

Fair-skinned people are most likely to get burns and are at a higher risk of skin cancer. When people get a tan on their skin from the sun, this is caused by sun damage. The more time spent in the sun, the darker the tan gets. Too much sun can cause burns and even blistering.

Sun Safety Tips for Children

To prevent sunburn, parents should always be sure that children are wearing a sunscreen of at least SPF 30. It is recommended that children stay indoors between 10 am and 2 pm, when the sun’s rays are the strongest.

If families must be outside during this time, it is important to try to stay in the shade. The heat of the sun can also cause dehydration from sweating, so parents and children should drink lots of water when out in the sun. Sun hats and sunglasses are important to protect the eyes from sun damage.

Sunscreen to Prevent Sun Burn and Damage

A sunscreen of at least SPF 30 should be used for children. Parents should be sure that sunscreen is applied to the entire body, even areas covered by clothes as clothing does not protect from the sun’s rays. The sunscreen should be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure, and reapplied throughout the day. If children are swimming, sunscreen should be reapplied upon leaving the water.

Sun Warnings

The sun causes serious damage if safety measures are not used. Skin cancer and serious burns can be prevented with the right sunscreen. The sun can also cause overheating, which can lead to heatstroke and heat exhaustion.

Nausea, vomiting, fainting and delirium are signs of either of these problems and need immediate medical attention. If a child has a fever, trouble looking at light or has an infected sun burn parents should also contact the family doctor.
