♡ Maintaining Oily Skin ♡

Oily skin is really hard to maintain but I'm going to share with you guys some of my tips on how I keep my face shine free! I've had oily skin ever since I hit puberty and it's always bothered me but I've learned a lot on how to work with it over the years. But anyways let me know if you guys like this post! ♡

♡ 10 Tips For Maintaining Oily Skin 

 1. Drink lots of water & eat healthier foods! Water is so good for you and it helps your skin and hair too, so drink lots of it. And greasy foods make your skin more oily.
 2. Cleanse, Treat, and Moisturize in that order. You probably think that you shouldn't moisturize your skin because it's oily but moisturizing your skin with a lotion (not a cream!) is actually really good for your skin.
 3. Use lightweight oil-free cleansing products. Avoid thick & heavy cream cleansing products!
 4. Don't constantly wash your face. When you do this it dries out your skin and makes your body produce even more oil!
 5. Exfoliate once a week! When dead skin cells build up on your skin it will leave it looking dull and flaky. But be sure to use a soft exfoliant so that you're not putting your skin under too much stress.
 6. Don't put hot water on your face, it strips the natural oils from your face and while that sounds heavenly it actually makes your skin lose all of it's moisture, again making your skin produce more oil!
 7. Buy some blotting sheets! I use NYX's tea trea oil blotting sheets.
 8. If you wear lots of makeup remember to wash it off at the end of the day.
 9. Foundation as well as your cleansing products should be oil-free too! Or use a powder foundation and spray your blending sponge with water before applying it.
 10. For the blackheads that won't go away use biore's pore strips! :)

♡ Face Mask For Oily Skin ♡
Mix 3 tbsp. banana, 1 tsp. honey, and a few drops of lemon juice until they form a smooth paste. Apply to face while avoiding the eye area and leave it on for 20 minutes then rinse with cool water!  Only use this mask once a week!!!
