Everyone’s skin is different. It means there is no single skin care routine to suit everyone.

A person with oily skin will have a very different way of looking after their complexion compared to someone with dry skin. This is why it’s important to determine which skin type you have before buying a lot of pricey products.

For someone who has an oily skin, it can be so frustrating because this also makes your hair greasy. If you want to get your hair cut and styled in the same way as the models on the Rush.co.uk or Toni and Guy website, you’ll be worried that your hair will stick to your face and become greasy.

But need not worry now, this article will share you some useful tips to eliminate greasy skin.

First, you have to understand that it’s only a myth that greasy and fatty foods caused your skin to become greasy. However, it is fact that certain foods can improve your complexion. Try adding foods which are rich in vitamins B5 and B2 (such as nuts, beans and whole grains) into your diet because it is believed that lack of these nutrients can cause oily skin. Moreover, bear in mind that there are medications and the exposure to smoke and excessive heat can caused oily skin.

Now, consider the following beauty ideas for your oily skin:

1. When you are cleaning your face, avoid using hot water because this actually dries out the skin and washes away essential healthy skin oils which keeps skin supple and soft. Instead, use cold water because this opens up your pores, rids you of dirt and allows your skin to breathe.

2. Rather than using harsh face scrubs – which damage the skin and dry it out – use a moisturizing foaming gel which contains salicylic acid.

3. Avoid creamy cleansers because they clog pores and add an oily film to your skin. Salicylic Acid on the other hand actually dissolves the oil on your face, making it clear and soft.
