25 Best Fairness Tips For Oily Skin July 4, 2018

If you have oily skin, you are well aware of its woes. Acne, pimples, blemishes, excessive shine in your T-zone – these issues often make your skin dull and lifeless. I know this. And I also know that you secretly desire even, glowing, bright, and healthy skin. The good news is, that is precisely what I am going to discuss here today.

No. I will not promise that the tips I am going to discuss here will make you the “fairest of all” overnight or with continuous use. But I can assure you that they will definitely help brighten up your face and restore your original skin tone. And you will not stop admiring yourself in front of the mirror. So, here we go!

Quick And Easy Fairness Tips For Oily Skin

If you are tired of trying the brightness and fairness creams available on the market, these quick and easy tips will be of great help. Check them out!

1. Cleanse Your Face

As soon as you wake up from sleep, splash lukewarm water on your face, followed by cold water. This closes your pores. Washing your face with cold water also tones the skin, makes it look fresh, and slows down the aging process by preventing wrinkles.

2. Drink Water

If you think that people with oily skin do not need hydration, you are wrong. Drinking enough water helps your body get rid of toxins. It brightens up your face naturally, making it radiant and glowing.

3. Exfoliate With Sea Salt

This is the best way to treat and pamper your oily skin. Mix some sea salt with lukewarm water and then massage it on your face. Sea salt contains loads of minerals and nutrients that are beneficial for oily skin. It removes excess oil and keeps your skin nourished.

4. Cut Down On Stress

When you are stressed, your body releases cortisol, the stress hormone. And this hormone can cause premature aging and break down collagen. So, do meditation and yoga, learn a new skill, or indulge in your favorite hobbies to reduce the stress levels.

5. Exercise

Working out is crucial for great skin. A 30-minute cardio is enough to open the clogged pores and pep up your skin tissues. Also, exercise improves blood circulation, and your skin gets an adequate supply of all the nutrients. This automatically enhances your skin tone and boosts skin health.

6. Get Enough Sleep

When you sleep, your body goes into the repair mode (including the skin). It generates new cells and increases the blood flow to the skin surface (now you know the reason for that morning glow!). This prevents eye bags and dark circles.

7. Protect Your Skin From UV Rays

Excessive exposure to UV rays damages your skin, accelerates the aging process, and results in age spots, blemishes, tan, and fine lines. So, whenever you go out, protect your skin with a powerful sunscreen (that has an SPF of at least 30).

8. Moisturize Your Skin Daily

Yes. Oily skin needs moisturization. The moisturizer acts as a barrier, tricks your skin into producing less sebum, and gives it a smooth texture. It contains emulsifiers that bind oil and water and help the natural sebum penetrate deeper into the skin, thus reducing the oiliness on the surface.

9. Be Gentle On Your Skin

Whenever you use any product, be it a cream or a scrub, do not rub it harshly into your skin. If you over exfoliate your skin, it results in microscopic inflammation, swelling, clogged pores, redness, and blemishes. So, treat your skin gently.

10. Consume Healthy Food

Consume wholesome food – because this is what will keep your skin healthy and glowing at the end of the day. Include foods rich in omega-3s in your diet. Consume cold water fish, such as tuna, halibut, salmon, and mackerel, along with vegetables and whole grains. You can also drink a glass of red wine as it is rich in antioxidants.

In addition to making these lifestyle changes, you can also try some home remedies to cleanse your skin and keep it bright and glowing. Check them out!
