Tips for Oily Skin by Artist Tarun Kapoor

Don’t over clean your Skin:
It can be tempting to wash and wash and wash oily skin but this can create more oil. Wash your face once in the morning (if it needs it) and twice at night to get rid of make-up.

Don’t be tempted to use scrubs a lot:
A scrub is great for getting rid of dead skin cells but, used too often, they can encourage your skin to produce even more oil. One to two times a week is plenty.

Don’t use too many lotions and creams:
One advantage of oily skin is that it moisturises itself. I don’t use any night creams or moisturises and haven’t for years, my skin has become used to producing just enough moisture from the inside. Also, folks with oilier skin have less wrinkles – true.

Do use a vitamin serum (or similar) and an eye cream:
There are some things that can help to give a better skin texture and provide nutrients for your skin. If you are over 25, use an eye cream. You will be glad you did when you cross over into the bigger digits.

Do use a Sunscreen:
Everyone should do this. Everyone. Choose one that doesn’t clog your pores.

Do drink lots of water: Everyone should do this, but, for those of us with oily skin, this is key to cleaning our your system and avoiding lots of blockages (zits, pimples, etc.).

Do keep your hair clean:
If you have oily skin, you probably have oily hair. Keeping hair clean can have a great impact on the oil levels on your face too.
