Oily skin is cared for by cleansing the face twice for a deep clean, spraying a hydrating toner mist onto the face, using a high-quality moisturizer to protect the skin and applying an oil control gel. Keep oily skin under control, while maintaining proper hydration, with beauty advice from a clinical aesthetician in this free video on skin care.
Are you experiencing a little too much shine on your face? Do you have a little bit too much of that JLo glow than you want? My name is Keeley Selvage with Keeley's Skin Solutions. I've been a clinical aesthetician for over half a decade, and I'm going to talk to you about how to fight oily skin. Now know this, oily skin stays younger looking longer, so it doesn't necessarily have to be a good thing if you know how to take care of it properly. So, I'm going to take you through a few steps to show you how to take care of your oily skin on a daily basis. Now, I've already cleansed my client's skin once, and we're going to cleanse it a second time. A second time, why a second time? Well, that's a very good question. The reason we want to cleanse it twice is because the first cleanse actually takes off the surface oil, dirt, and impurities; any makeup, pollution, smoke, anything like that in the air, we're removing that from the surface of the skin. Then, the second cleanse is actually cleansing the skin, and that's what we really want. It's really going to clean out and purify those follicles or the pores of the skin, and really make sure that our face is all clean, and it also keeps us from having to use an astringent. Astringents are alcohol based and can dry out the skin. We don't want that. Even though your skin is oily you do not want to dry it out, because what happens is when your skin is dehydrated it sends a signal to your sebaceous glands or your oil glands that it's dry, and so they start makin' more oil. So, instead of a drying toner we're going to use a hydrating toner mist, I'm going to spray this over you, and that's going to balance her pH, and it's going to give her the hydration that she needs. Now, we're also going to put on an oil-free moisturizer. Moisturizer on top of it? Yes, a moisturizer too, because once again, we want it to stay hydrated, and also our skin has a protective barrier. It keeps bacteria from entering it; therefore, we're preventing breakouts which we know is a problem with oily skin. After that, you can use an oil control gel, and then also, you can use rice paper throughout the day. And if you don't have those, the toilet seat covers that you find in the mall; those work too if you're in a pinch. My name is Keeley Selvage, with Keeley's Skin Solutions, and that is how you fight oily skin.
