Oily skin conditions come on a level par as a problem for both genders.

People the world over have at some time experienced patches of either dry or oily skin, and still do for them who haven't found a solution to treat the problem.

Not that the mature man/woman is not affected with oily skin, it is primarily an issue we connect towards the younger individual where it affects 1 of every 2 teenagers (girl and boy.)

Oily skin is more likely to bring blackheads, skin shine, and if you love cosmetics and like creating the perfect finish - then oily skin can prevent this from happening.

Acne is another result of greasy skin.

Sadly, just washing the face isn't enough, and over-washing is unhealthy. Remember, some specific oily skin treatments contain harsh chemicals so read the label carefully and follow instructions accordingly. Particular ingredients upset the delicate Ph balance of the skin or skin tone so take care, as we are here to treat oily skin "only" and not something derived as a result from using products that contained harsh substances. Un-agreeable elements used on your skin can cause serious skin concerns.

When looking for a solution for oily skin, then natural oils is naturally the best. There are women who cannot get there head round why, when you have oily skin how using "oils" is the answer. A lot of answers to our problems may not make sense or seem right; however the important thing is if it works and is safe then why on earth question them answers.

Many treatments suggested will appear more appetizing to the palette than what is considered as solution to oily skin, however if you want to treat and cure oily skin you have to resist the urge to nibble on the ingredients.

Oily skin is the culprit behind what you are seeing and feeling and can be caused by a multitude of things. Depending upon your age and circumstances, you could have oily skin due to heredity, dietary choices, or the most likely reason of hormone changes. Shifting hormone levels tends to be the biggest reason for oily skin. These hormone shifts can be due to puberty, menstrual cycles, birth control pills, pregnancy, or menopause.

Whatever your specific reason for having oily skin is, there are ways you can tame your oily skin and turn it back to healthy looking manageable skin.

Solutions for Oily Skin

Most women think that once they have given the skin the once over with soap and water that is the end of that. Think about it ladies, all women wash their face but still suffer problems and why, simply because washing is not enough for maintaining and achieving a radiant complexion.

Moisturizing the skin is a vital element that should be practiced at every possible convenience in a woman's beauty regime.

A beauty conquest is incomplete without moisturizer. The skin loses its natural moisture's throughout the day and needs replenishing, and if moisturizer is not used - you face skin issues like roughness and the skin becoming irritated. Facial and body skin needs regular moisturizing and from this you will see fewer fine lines, a smooth texture, and less surface flaking. Honey is a natural moisturizer. Anything natural is good. Apply a thin layer of honey over the face. Yes it`s messy and sticky, but hey if it's the answer to your problem, then what is the problem. The honey glaze is easily removed with warm water after it had been left on for about 15 minutes.

Judge the amount of oil in your skin and moisturize accordingly.

It`s funny how when we age we find ourselves trying to understand how over the years that what we battled against, is now what we battle for, meaning, the treatments involved for ridding oil is now a reverse treatment where we look to put oil back into the skin because oil production decreases with age.

With age, skin starts to wrinkle making it necessary to supply the skin with oils. Oily skin has its perks because it generally ages the skin "slowly," so look on the bright side because maybe, just maybe, you may warm to the idea of the glossy look in comparison to the look of a dried prune.
