With the focus of skin care on anti-aging products and how to best find ways in which to maintain a youthful appearance, we often forget to address those that have issues associated with oily skin. Today, I am going to give you some tips and recommendations to keep that shine under control.
Make sure to keep blotting papers in your purse to be used when the shine reappears (and unfortunately it can). Do not rub over face, but rather press firmly against oily areas of the skin for 15-20 seconds.
Spicy foods and alcohol (BUMMER!) dilate the blood vessels increasing perspiration, which in turn stimulates the production of excess oils. Be cautious and limit both as much as possible.
Smoking constricts blood vessels and decreases blood flow to the upper layers of the skin which can contribute to oily skin. This just gives you another reason to quit.
Last, adding a Vitamin A supplement to your diet may also help to control excess facial and body oils.
Hard Night Good Morning strives to provide our customers with products that are healthy, safe, and effective for all skin types, even those that exhibit signs of overproduction of oil. Maintain a simple routine, but above all be consistent with your daily skin care. Keep in mind that oily skin tends to be less of a problem as we age, so be patient, determined, and mindful to see oil as a problem with solutions.
There’s busy, and then there is “dashing in heels” busy.
We know our founder, D’Andra Simmons, would agree with Gretchen Bauer, founder of BSWANKY, when she says that every day running your own business is an adventure...an adventure that absolutely requires dashing in heels.
