All about oily and dry skin


Identifying Oily Skin and its Causes

 

Oily skin is particularly common in the face and scalp. The skin becomes oily when the sebaceous glands

are overactive and produce too much sebum, which can sometimes lead to further conditions like acne,

blackheads and pimples. The complexion of this skin type is sallow with coarse pores. The skin has an

oily sheen, and flaking can also occur in some cases.

 

Skin Care Tips for Oily Skin

 

For people with oily skin, it is especially important to be careful when cleansing or applying makeup.

Below are six tips designed to get rid of oily skin:

1. To reduce the amount of excess sebum, wash your face twice a day, and not more, with warm

water and a gel cleanser like DEJA VU COSMETICS DEAD SEA MINERALS CLEANSING GEL

that are especially designed for oily skin.

2. Use water-based and oil-free skin care products in order to avoid clogging your pores further.

Like DEJAVU SERUM OR VITA GEL, which is mainly water-based.

3. Exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells, excess oil and to open pores.

4. Use mud masks to reduce sebum. Adding a few drops of tea tree oil to your masks also helps

because of its known astringent properties.

5. Avoid liquid makeup that can cause pores to clog up. Powder based makeup, on the other hand,

will mattify your face by absorbing excess oil.

6. To get rid of oily skin from the inside, avoid oily and fatty foods and eat more vegetables, fruits,

whole grains and lean proteins.

 

Dead Sea Products can help!

 

Oily skin often reacts against our wishes. The more you try to wash away the oil, the more actively the

sebaceous glands work to replace it. Therefore, it is imperative to use products that are designed

specifically for oily skin. It has been known for thousands of years that the salt and minerals from the

Dead Sea have a beneficial effect on the skin. The minerals cleanse, nourish and stimulate the skin cells.

Appropriate daily personal care with specially formulated products like the Dead Sea Minerals Salt Soap,

Facial Peeling Gel and Dead Sea Minerals-based facial serum, if done regularly, stabilizes the production

of sebum and makes the skin smoother.

 

What Are Signs And Symptoms Of Dry Skin?

 

The main symptom of dry skin is itching. People with dry skin often find rough, dry, red patches

on their skin, and these patches are often itchy. Skin areas affected include the arms, hands,

lower legs, abdomen, and areas of friction such as ankles and soles. As skin dryness becomes

more severe, cracks may begin to develop.

Beside the common case that you can actually see the dryness on your face (especially during

winter time), here are a few more ways to predict dryness that has just appeared on you face:

Itching, skin tightness and rough feeling, lines or cracks (can bleed sometimes -

depending on how bad the case is), Redness / ashy skin (relevant to people with darker

skin)

 

What Causes Dry Skin?

  • Over-washing with harsh soaps
  • Lack of effective treatment
  • Using products that are not designed to dry your skin
  • Overuse of sanitizers and cleaning agents
  • Cold temperatures
  • Family history and personal history of other medical conditions like atopic dermatitis.
  • Those with thyroid disease are more prone to developing dry skin.


But there is actually useful tips that can really help:

So here is our 10 top golden tips:


1. Shower time - short, warm (and not too hot) showers or baths. Limit yourself to one 5-

to 10-minute bath or shower daily. During shower time, use a fragrance-free cleanser.

At the end of your shower, blot your skin gently dry with a towel and apply good

moisturizer for dry face skin or Shea Butter for your entire body, immediately after

drying your skin.

2. Use a cream rather than a lotion. They are more effective and less irritating than

lotions. Look for a cream that contains natural ingredients that will help to soothe dry

skin on your face: such as olive oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, Chamomile oil and

Avocado oats (fight inflammation and redness). For body - use a good scrub and follow

with Shea butter.

3. Stay away products:

  • Stay away from products that such as hand sanitiziers and those that contain

alcohol– these products have a drying effect on your skin. To keep your hands

smooth, look for hydrating versions that are dermatologist-recommended.

  • Stay away from the use of soaps
  • Stay away from bath sponges. If you feel that you have them, use them very

gently, and try to pay or blot (don’t rub) the skin when toweling dry.

4. Use fragrance-free laundry detergents and avoid fabric softeners.

5. Avoid wearing fabrics that can irritate the skin.

6. Although it can be tempting - do not scratch your skin. Always keep a moisturizer

nearby. You can also use a cold compress to relieve any itchy areas.

7. Use effective treatment 

when dry skin is not treated properly, the dryness can progressively get more sensitive

and harder to fix.

8. Peel the dry layer away gently and with the right products: you should peel of the

"dead"/ dry upper layer and let the moisturizer reach deeper and better.

9. Try to avoid your skin from Sun exposure.

10. Minimize your smoking - skin dries out more easily while Nicotine from cigarette smoke

may be in your blood flow.
