Oil control

the reason why your face gets shiny

We all want a healthy glowy look, but not a shiny look. Nevertheless we all sometimes have to deal with a shiny, greasy skin. To treat this we will first have to know why our skin becomes greasy and shiny and what our skin type is.

Treatment

It will be much easier to treat now we have been able to link the various symptoms to a skin type.

Type A: the right approach for this type is cleansing.
This is the most direct method to get rid op dirt and grease. In addition, try avoid touch your cheeks too often, otherwise you will make them more greasier.
 
Type B: the different zones should be approached differently.
T-zone - dubble cleanse methode and hydration; it is important to deep cleanse/exfoliate your T-zone periodically. 
U-zone - regular cleansing methode and hydration; moderate cleansing, otherwise it will dehydrate your skin.

Oil control is important on the T-zone, while U-zone needs hydration. One is not more important than the other, so don't skip one of the two zones during your routine!

Type C: often is a greasy face caused by a dehydrated skin. A layer of sebum, dust and dirt is left on the face and forms a mixture which causes microbial infection, this leads to a sensitive skin and/or other skin troubles.
Your skin is overproducing oil and sebum because it is so dehydrated and it is trying to protect itself (it gets the wrong signals). A dehydrated skin is going to produce more oil and sebum to keep itself hydrated.

Start with the cause by intensively add moisture to your skin. Try an essence or serum, since these are high concentrated and is it easy to be absorbed by the skin. (Sheet masks contains essences).

Cleansing

Pre-cleanse
It is very important to remove your makeup each night. The best moment to do is this immediately upon returning home, dirt and grease won't get a chance to further withdraw into your pores.

Oil based type

If you have a oily skin, try to use oil based makeup removers. "Wash away oil with oil" and it also exfoliates.

Cleanse

Use a mild cleanser and cleanse your face with care and right method. Be gentle to your skin and clean it by massaging with your fingertops in circular movements. Don't rub or scrub abusively and cleanse with moderation!

Dubble cleanse
After cleansing, pat your face dry with a soft towel and dubble cleanse your face with a toner and cottonpads. This will remove the left over dirt and cleansing products, and the cottonpad will help you to exfoliate.

Skin improvement is being patient! It is important to give a new skin care routine/product a trial period of at least 1 month since your skin will renew its cells each 28 days. In case you notice (a small) dfference, please try another 2-3 months.
