This note is at the request of the Sahiba reader. Sahiba asked for a mask suitable for her skin type. Of course, we talked outside the blog about what skin type it has. After doing a small interview, we came to the conclusion that her type is oily skin. At the beginning I would like to make a small introduction, because with this note I start a series of notes about skin types.
As you know, the skin is divided into several types:
- oily skin
On one of the social networks I asked if you know your skin type. See how the results looked.
Most of the voters have normal skin, but there were also people with oily skin to whom I also dedicate today's note. Oily skin most often found in young people who have problems with too much activity of the sebaceous glands. Regarding the characteristics - we can see the earthy color of the skin and enlarged pores, as well as the tendency to form subcutaneous lumps and breakouts.
This type is fat, less supplied with blood than other types, and also has a great predisposition to "shine". The upside is that this type is less sensitive to weathering. Despite this, it maintains elasticity longer, which lengthens the youthful appearance;) A huge mistake made by people with oily skin is using too much cosmetics that dry the skin. This is bad for the skin, because it can have the opposite effect to what we want to get - the skin may start to get more greasy. Creams containing more than 30% fat are also not recommended.
I do not know if you know my dear, that with this type is not recommended sunbathing on the beach or solarium? So what to use to properly care for oily skin? First of all, it is worth using cosmetics rich in zinc, copper and sulfur. Zinc cleanses the skin, copper and sulfur regulate sebum production. That is why it is worth to buy cosmetics rich in these elements.
As for the masks that Sahib asked for - a lot of masks that you will find in drugstores - for oily and acne-prone skin will be loved for you. It can be Perfecta pear mask, AVA series with green tea, or from Lirene. These are just examples, in the drugstore you will find a lot of cosmetics for your skin. If you like natural cosmetics, I recommend you make a mask perfect for your skin.
Pour a tablespoon of dried pansy and the same amount of dried horsetail in half a glass of hot water. We brew for 20 minutes. After this time, we add ground fresh yeast. Mix thoroughly. Apply the resulting mask on your face for 20 minutes. After this time, wash with boiled water.
Pour a tablespoon of oat flakes milled in a grinder with two tablespoons of an intense horsetail infusion (2 tablespoons dried in half a glass of boiling water), grind it to a mush. Then add a few drops of lemon juice, mix. Apply the mask thus prepared on the face for 20 minutes. After this time, wash with cooled, boiled water.
Mix a tablespoon of yeast with boiled, cooled water. We add a teaspoon of squeezed lemon juice. Put the paste on your face and let it dry completely. Then we moisten the mask on the skin with moist fingertips for a few minutes. Finally rinse your face with cold water.
Of course, these are just examples of masks, many others can be found by browsing the Internet;) Sahibo, I hope that I helped you and my beloved readers who have oily skin.
In the near future part II - mixed skin.
