10 greasy-skin cures to make your skin makeup-friendly

15 June 2016, 06:47Chanté Petersen

Your skin’s condition is pretty much cyclic and often depends on our menstruation cycle, changes in weather patterns and stress. These factors are out of your control. Fortunately, there are many things you can control to improve your skin's condition.

1.    Never go to bed with makeup on

Sleep is essential for your body to renew itself and your skin is no different. Going to bed with makeup on can cause clogged pores and dull skin.          

2.    Your skin needs a detox too

This is no myth. If you can bear it, go a few days without applying foundation or concealer and allow your skin to breathe.

3.    Don’t skip your skincare routine

This goes beyond removing your makeup. It also washes away the day’s dirt. Stick to your regular cleansing routine and put back the necessary moisture lost throughout the day.

4.    Keep your hands away from your face

Touching your face transfers all the impurities from your hands to your face. Remember that your hands touch almost everything.

5.    Take note of skincare ingredients

There are countless ingredients used in skincare products that all claim to restore, nourish and basically turn your skin to gold. But who knows what those ingredients really are. Always research your product and read reviews from others who have used it before.

6.    Include avocados, tomatoes, berries and, yes, lots of water to your diet

In order to nourish your skin you have to nourish your body. Add fresh food to your diet like green vegetables, avo, tomatoes and berries. They’re all rich in antioxidants and water.

7.    Spice things up - literally

Spices such as turmeric contain a great amount of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiseptic qualities. Include it in your cooking regularly.

8.    Occasionally add apple cider vinegar to your cleansing routine

Not the best smelling thing on earth, and also quite astringent, so let’s place emphasis on occasionally.  But Apple cider vinegar is a great way to balance your skin’s pH and, according to Glamour, Scarlett Johansson swears by it.

9.    Routine facials – especially  masks

A facial gives your skin that much-needed deep clean, so make getting a facial once a month should be a priority.

10.    Take the shine off

If you’re really prone to excessive shine, powder your face with a loose powder, mattifying primer or foil-wrapped packets of alcohol-saturated wipes for oily skin.
