Cómo tratar la piel grasosa

La piel grasosa puede ser difícil de controlar. Las hormonas determinan la cantidad de aceite que produce tu piel, lo que significa que no hay mucho que puedas hacer para cambiar el hecho de tener una piel grasosa. De hecho, tu tipo de piel puede ser hereditario. La buena noticia es que, si bien no puedes cambiar tu tipo de piel, podemos ofrecerte una guía sobre cómo controlar la piel grasosa. Prueba estos pasos para conseguir una piel sana y sin brillo todos los días.

Antes de transformar tu rutina, asegúrate de que tengas realmente la piel grasosa. Hazte algunas de estas preguntas: ¿Tus poros son significativamente más grandes en la zona T (nariz, frente y barbilla)? ¿El maquillaje se disuelve o “desliza” de la cara poco después de aplicarlo? ¿Tu piel suele ponerse brillante, sobre todo de forma rápida, unas dos horas después de la limpieza? ¿Eres propensa a las imperfecciones en la piel, como los puntos negros, los granos, el acné y los barros? Si respondiste afirmativamente a la mayoría de estas preguntas, es probable que tengas la piel grasosa. Ahora que ya lo sabes, conoce más sobre cómo abordar el tema.

1. Cleanse

Cleansing is a crucial step in managing oily skin and you should be cleansing your skin both in the morning and at night. Use a mattifying cleanser which can cut through the oiliness and truly clean the dirt, oil and build-up off of your skin. Avoid anything drying or products that may strip your skin. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Mattifying is formulated to cleanse and even remove makeup while staying gentle for oily skin.

2. Use Toner

Toner is can be effective on oily skin as it can remove and leftover oiliness, residue and can help balance pH.

3. Exfoliate

Exfoliation is important for oily skin. Not exfoliating regularly means that your skin is building up dead cells on its surface and oil is unable to freely flow out of your pores. This causes clogging and can increase the appearance of pore size and produce blackheads. Use a scrub like Garnier Clean+ Invigorating Daily Scrub, formulated with jojoba beads to gently exfoliate skin the natural way.

4. Moisturize Correctly

Don’t avoid moisturizing because you have oily skin and think that’s enough moisture. Use an oil-free moisturizer and apply to your entire face. You can be more sparing in your T-zone and show your cheeks and upper forehead more love if they typically skew on the drier side of the spectrum. We recommend a basic moisturizer with SPF like Garnier Moisture Rescue Actively Hydrating Daily Lotion so that you can go about your day not worrying about being shiny.

5. Clay Masks

Clay masks are extremely helpful in the fight against oily skin as they can remove excess oil and clean out your pores. We recommend Garnier Pore Purifying 2-in-1 Clay Cleanser/Mask, which can be used daily or weekly to help remove excess sebum. You should apply and let it rest until the mask no longer feels moist to the touch but is far from crumbling and dry.

6. Blotting Paper

This is your friend in need — if you ever realize that your skin is starting to feel greasy, blotting paper will be a lifesaver. Just dab a sheet on the affected areas to restore a shine-free look. Don’t rub blotting paper over your skin as this can irritate your skin.

7. Incorporate a healthy lifestyle

A healthy diet of leafy greens, antioxidant rich berries, citrus fruits and omega-3 rich foods is great for your skin.
