Do you have oily skin? Oily skin can be best described as looking shiny, dull colored and/or coarse. Some people may even refer to their skin as having a greasy look. This type of skin is prone to severe acne, blemishes and black heads. Anyone can have oily skin. An individual with oily skin often has very large pores. Although oily skin is primarily a problem with teens because of all of the hormonal changes, many adults can suffer from oily skin as well. This can particularly be a problem for ladies who would like to wear make-up. Oily skin can make it extremely difficult to not only keep make-up on, but also it can be hard to find a foundation that will work for your oily skin. Using the wrong foundation (non-oil free) can cause oily skin to break out. (For tips on how to have long lasting make-up CLICK HERE!). Since our skin tends to become drier as we age, the greatest advantage to having oily skin is that it tends to not age as fast. When caring for oily skin, be sure to  clean your skin using warm water and cleansers designed for oily skin. Use oil free moisturizers and never over wash your skin. Generally washing your face over four times a day is not helpful. Also, try using a clay or mud mask. An individual with oily skin may also want to consider how they are eating. It is best to stay away from cooking with oil and avoid (or limit) things like soda, lots of sugar, alcoholic beverages, chocolate and junk food. Smoking can also escalate the problem because it causes pores to become larger.  

Herbs for oily skin: Aloe Vera, Burdock Root, Chamomile, Horsetail, Oat Straw and Thyme. Also try: Lavender, Witch Hazel & a facial sauna using lemon grass, licorice root and rosebuds.
