Anti Aging Tips For Oily Skin
Men and women with oily skin can develop wrinkles and other signs of skin aging just like those who have dry and normal skin. Yes, people who have oily skin age too. However, those who have oily skin have this some sort of special ability to prevent wrinkles and fine lines longer than those who have dry skin. This is because their skin is more moist, always moist, so wrinkles are less likely to form prematurely. But as people with oily skin age, hormonal changes will cause their skin’s oil production to decrease and they will eventually face the dreaded effects of aging on their skin. So even if you have this skin type that can delay aging, you still need to take extra care of your skin as you age. With this, let me share to you some anti aging tips for oily skin.
1. Even if you have oily skin, the area around your mouth, eyes and neck tends to be drier and may need extra moisture. Signs of aging such as wrinkles and crows feet are commonly found around the eye area so it is very important to give extra care and attention to this part of your face.
2. People with oily skin tend to wash their face more often because their face attracts more dirt and grime than other skin types. It kind of feels sticky and dirty after a while so they tend to wash it off. But here’s the thing, over washing is simply harmful. It can actually do more harm that good to your face. Ironic as it may seem, over washing can dry out your skin. Your sebaceous glands respond to over washing by producing even more oil, and so you end up with more oil on your face on the outside and a dehydrated skin inside.
3. Wearing sunscreen is an integral part of any good anti aging skin care regimen. UV rays can damage your skin leading it to age much sooner so it is very important to wear sunscreen everyday even when you’re just at home. People with oily skin might think that sunscreen will just clog their pores and make their skin much oilier. Fortunately, there are a lot of sunscreens available in the market today which are specially designed for those with oily complexions.
To enjoy all the benefits of oily skin and experience skin aging with less problems, make sure to follow the tips that I’ve mentioned above. Apart from that, you have to make sure to follow an anti aging skin care routine which includes using oil free products and indulging in anti aging facial treatments once in a while.
