Regular cleansing and not using rich creams is needed. The best type of products for oily skin are ones that clear clogged pores such as the Purifying Face mask by mesoestetic.

Best Skin Care Tips for Oily Skin

Although oily skin is caused by the production of excess oil, the main problem with oily skin is not necessarily the oil. Oil causes dirt and dead skin cells to get trapped in pores and this causes more problems such as acne, black heads, white heads, and clogged pores which are the actual negative results of oily skin.

frecklesTherefore the best way to treat oily skin, is to reduce the amount of oil that traps dirt in the pores.

Many think that applying moisturizer to oily skin is not nessecary, when in actuality applying a balanced, oil free moisturizer can help control oil production and regulate the skin. Use a mild cleanser daily that does not dry out skin so that the skin does not over produce oil later in the day and follow cleansing with a pH balanced, oil free moisturizer.

Helpful hint: look for a cream/gel formulation so it feels lightweight on the skin.

Some good habits for oily skin care are:

• Use a gentle astringent or toner which is mild and picks up excess dirt and oil after cleansing

• Use mild exfoliation at least 2 to 3 times per week to remove build up

• Use sunscreens that are not heavy and labeled non-greasy or oil free

• You may be able to use a serum instead of a regular moisturizer to hydrate the skin when needed or only at night

• Try a Salicylic acid peels which is recommended for oily, breakout prone and acne. This will help smooth skin texture and effectively treats hyperkeratosis.

Products for Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea symptoms are often classified by redness caused by inflamed blood vessels. This redness makes the skin appear blotchy and uneven. Other symptoms include swelling and a bloated look to the face.

Rosacea is also one of the most diagnosed skin conditions because it is often confused with acne.

However, acne treatments target different needs and can even worsen rosacea.

While some causes are health-related such as genetics or stomach bacteria, other causes of rosacea are flareups that can be managed via lifestyle choices.

Though rosacea has no permanent cure, it can be mitigated or made worse by food, environment, or stress. For example, hot drinks, spicy food, and alcohol can increase rosacea symptoms. Some environmental factors to avoid are cold weather and harsh winds. If you don´t have a flare-up, day-to-day choices can help the symptoms or rosacea from returning.

Since rosacea is caused by internal inflammation or heat that appears as redness on the skin, the best way to treat it is by cooling the body inside and out. To cool on the inside, drink plenty of water and avoid hot food and drinks with stimulants such as alcohol and caffeine. Also eat cool, uncooked, and fresh food such as fruits and vegetables instead of fried food.

For external treatment, use cooling face mask, creams, or moisturizers that help soothe the skin. Professional medical skin care treatments such as the meso_peel Azelan also help because they reduce post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. For daily use, it is recommended to use a face mask or face wash with refreshing ingredients and cooling sensation such as the Anti-stress face mask and/or Hydra Milk Cleanser or other mesoestetic products.
