Simple Remedies for Oily Skin

Although a bit of natural oil is good for moisture preservation on your skin, it can easily become a bother when it is in excess. This is why people often feel like they are always fighting a losing battle when it comes to dealing with an oily face.

Oily skincomes about naturally when your sebaceous glands which lie under your dermis become larger and as a result produce excess oil.

Causes of oily skin


Just like many other things that are passed along in your family, same thing happens to oily skin. If both of your parents or one of them has oily skin, the chances that you inherited your shiny nose from him/her are very high. But no need to worry because research has shown that the oilier the skin, the younger we look, and the less wrinkles we get; but at times it can be too much.

Stress levels:

According to a featured research on sciencedaily.com, in addition to stress affecting you physically and psychologically, it also plays a part when it comes to your dermatological issues. This is because when your stress levels raise, cortisol, which is the stress hormone in your body, also rises and in return increases the amount of oil produced leading to that greasy look on your skin.

Birth Control:

Some forms of birth control can easily lead to oily skin. This happens when these BC cause dehydration and the sebaceous glands end up overproducing sebum to compensate for the loss.

Other causes for oily skin include over using derma care products, weather, fluctuating hormone levels and different types of medication.

Remedies for oily skin

A little bit of oil is good for the skin, but too much of a good thing can also be bad. That said, here are a few easy ways one can use to maneuver through this greasy situation.

  1. Use water based cosmetics: By changing your range of cosmetics from the usual to “for oily skin”, you will be taking a huge step towards a non-oilier feel on the face. These cosmetics are usually water based, so as not to add shine while you are trying to get rid of it.
  2. Reconsider your birth control: Pay a visit to your GP and request for a different type of BC which would probably not cause your face to have more oil than needed.
  3. Wash your face twice a day: Try to wash your face in the morning and in the evening and not in-between. Less washing will lead up to accumulation of grease, while excess washing will lead to the over production of sebum. While still at this, it is important to wash using very warm water so that it breaks the oil and opens the pores. Afterwards splash your face with cold water so that the pores close.
  4. Use alcohol based wipes: These wipes can help reduce the shine on your face and are better used when you are on the go.
  5. Egg yolk: Eggs are not only nutritious for our bodies; they are also good for an oily face. Apply the yolk of the egg on your face and let it stay for 15 to 20 minutes. Afterwards wash with warm water for an oily-free face.
  6. Lemon juice: Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice on a cotton wool and apply on your face then let it stay for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash it off and discover a smooth, less oily feel.
  7. Keep stress at bay: Since high levels of stress add extra oil to your face, it is advisable to steer clear of stressful situations as well as learn how to relax.
  8. Finally, if you are out and about and your face starts looking like an oil-glazed doughnut, keep oil absorbing tissues with you and use them to bloat off any oil from your face.
