What’s the best moisturizer for oily skin? All skin needs hydration, but when you have oily skin you naturally look for products to dry it up. Unfortunately, many products that dry up the oil are harsh, and you end up with sensitive skin that has pimples. The key is to find the right products for your skin.
If your skin is oily it’s likely because you’re dehydrated and your skin in overcompensating. Adjusting your diet will get at the root cause of your problems. For some guidance, I suggest Purely Primal Skincare. It’s over 200 pages of tips that work from the inside, and the author is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner that specializes in non toxic body care.
Starting with your diet and digestion and moving on to healthy alternatives for cosmetics, the ebook is chock full of actionable tips for you to get the best skin, hair, and nails you can possibly have. I like the fact that you get free lifetime updates to the guide as well as online access to its web site so it won’t just sit on your hard drive gathering dust once you’ve finished reading it.
Best Moisturizer for Oily Skin Products
Most skin care products for oily skin have a lot of alcohol in them—specifically SD40 alcohol—which strips the acid mantle from the skin, is very drying, and often kicks the sebaceous glands into overdrive so they produce even more oil. You need products which will hydrate the skin without using oils (especially mineral oil) and that don’t contain alcohol.
A green clay mask helps clear out excess oil. Blend 1 teaspoon of green clay with 1 teaspoon of raw honey. Apply the mixture to your face, avoiding the eyes. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes, and rinse. This mask is gentle and can be done three times a week or more.
You may find that by increasing your use of certain supplements, herbs, and fatty acids will improve the look of your skin—
- Chia seed oils which have the perfect balance of Omega-3 to Omega-6 essential fatty acids for skin to remain well balanced.
- Rosehip seed oil is a healer for many skin disorders and contains linoleic acid, which is needed for healthy skin.
- Grape seed oil also contains linoleic acid which your skin needs to maintain healthy cell membranes.
Most of our skin problems start internally so until you address it on that level you won’t have the healthy kind of skin you want. If you want to normalize your skin and haven’t had success, consider the Purely Primal Skincare.
