excessive oiliness without stimulating the oil glands to produce more oil. You will find the
details about the right ingredients for the long and short-term solutions, as well as why they work
Kaolin - Oily Skin Solution
Kaolin is an extract from a specific kind of clay. It absorbs excessive oil
without causing dryness. The clay also attracts dirt and grime, pulling them out of your pores to reduce your risk
of pimples. The mild disinfectant properties of kaolin address any bacterial overgrowth that can lead to

in good daily cleansers.
Kiwifruit Extract - Oily Skin Solution
Kiwifruit extract is an excellent natural cleanser. Its foaming properties will
lift away excessive oils, makeup and dirt. Instead of irritating and stimulating the oil glands to produce more
oils, kiwifruit extract restores the skin’s natural pH balance of 5.5, which means you don’t have to use a toner
and you don’t run the risk of having oily skin all day. You will find the ingredient in the better daily
Maracuja - Oily Skin Solution
Maracuja is an extract from the passion fruit. Because it is similar in structure
to human skin, it has the effect of soothing the oil-producing glands in such a way that they do not produce
excessive oil. If you use a day cream containing maracuja after you wash your face, the glands do not sense
dryness. They are not stimulated to produce more oil.
Babassu - Oily Skin Solution
Babassu has similar effects to maracuja. The two ingredients help to balance sebum
production. When used regular, they help to prevent your skin from becoming too oily or too dry. Excessive dryness
is worse in some ways than excessive oiliness, because it leads to premature skin aging and wrinkles.

What is the Best Anti-Aging Facial
Of all the skin types, oily skin is often the most
challenging. Oil production is completely natural and is the result of the sebaceous glands located
in the dermis or middle layer of skin. These natural oils help keep skin moist and supple. But for some, the
sebaceous glands produce too much oil, leading to the most dreaded of the skin types – oily
How do I know I have oily skin?
Most teen-agers have oily skin because this is the time when hormone production is in full swing.
But if you've passed your teen years, there are other ways of determining whether or not you have oily skin. It's
fairly easy to detect, so start by looking in the mirror. Do you notice a sheen on your skin, especially in your
'T-Zone?' The T-Zone starts at the point between your eyes and extends vertically down along your nose all the way
to your chin. The zone also runs horizontally across the bridge of your nose, starting and ending at the center
point below each eye.
You may or may not notice the sheen during the day, so check again first thing after waking. If
there's a sheen, chances are good you have oily skin. While you're standing at the mirror, take a look at your
hair. If it's oily, it's another indication you likely have oily skin. If you wear make-up, specifically
foundation, and you find it fades or wears off after a couple of hours, that's yet another indication of oily skin.
If you're constantly patting your face with powder or even a handkerchief it's probably because of oily
The presence of blemishes is another good indication although stress, hormones and other factors
can all cause outbreaks. And remember that oily skin isn't found only on the face. The back, neck, chest, shoulders
and arms can all be oily.
- How to care for oily skin?
If you do have oily skin, you probably feel that the best way to combat it is to strip away those
pore-clogging, sheen-producing oils. Don't! Although they cause trouble for your complexion, oils produced by the
sebaceous glands are important because they act as the skin's natural moisturizer. And oily skin is sometimes
sensitive. Rather than completely remove oil, you need to keep it under control.
Another reason not to use harsh soaps that strip away oil is that doing so may cause the
sebaceous glands to increase their oil production. They'll instinctively want to replenish the lost oils and you
may end up with a bigger problem.
You've got to keep oily skin clean so that pores openings remain clear.
Otherwise, dead cells, dirt and other bacteria will clog pores and cause pimples. Skin is delicate so always use a
gentle cleanser and warm, not hot water. Exfoliate weekly with a non-abrasive product to help remove any
pore-clogging material or use a toner that does not list alcohol as an ingredient.
Use products that moisturize in moderation and according to directions. Make
sure the cosmetics and sun protection you use are oil-free. Look for skin care products with the words
'non-comedogenic' or 'non-acnegenic' on the labels.
