The oil that our body produces keeps our skin healthy, but too much of a good thing can lead to breakouts, blemishes, and a greasy looking face. Aaron Marino of alpha m. is hooking all the oily faced dudes up in this video.
How to Reduce Oil Production
- Washing your face often can strip oil, but then your smart body goes into oil production overdrive. Solution: only wash your face two times a day.
- If your cleanser is super harsh, your oil glands go gang-busters to replenish the oils. Solution: use a mild cleanser.
- If you are too aggressive when washing your face, your body thinks it has to produce a ton of oil. Solution: wash your face nice-and-easy. Also make sure you don't wash your face in super hot temperatures which can damage skin. Go mild, warm, and gentle.
- If you aren't using the right moisturizer, it won't be absorbed easily or quickly and is not water soluble. Solution: use a moisturizer that is absorbed easily, quickly, and is water soluble.
Immediately Remove Shine and Grease
To eliminate shine and grease immediately, use Instant Oil-Absorbing Sheets 50 sheets
(50 for around $5). You can carry these where ever you go. Alpha describes how to use the sheets. He also presents another option. Toilet seat covers! Yes! These absorb just as well as the blotting paper.
