Oily skin is lucky in the sense that it ages late but needs special cleansing with plenty of hot water and soap to prevent the pores from being clogged. Avoid harsh products that strip your skin of oil and encourage flakiness. They can cause a reaction known as reactive seborrhoea, where the oil glands work overtime to compensate for the loss of natural oils. To cleanse oily skin, use oil-based products as they dissolve sebum effectively. Opt for oil-free moisturizers to maintain a shine-free complexion. Keep your skin very clean. Limit washing your face to two or three times a day. Too much washing will stimulate your skin to produce more oil. For controlling the oil secretion you can use the following packs for you face. 1. Mash cucumber / Tomato and apply and leave on face. Wash it off after 15 - 20 minutes with water. 2. Like wise you can mix 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of honey and apply as face pack and wash off after 10-15 minutes. Both these help you to freshen up your skin. http://1stholistic.com/beauty/skin/skin_oily_skin.htm http://www.hindustanlink.com/beautytex/skinoily.htm
