Hydrate your skin

Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliate the face helps to remove impurities and dirt residues that accumulate; It is advisable to do it at least once and maximum three a week.
Use makeup oil free
In fact, if you can go through life without a foundation, much better, but if you choose to use it, it is best that you look for a specific oil-free product for oily skin. These visibly controls the production of facial fat and maintains a matte effect much of the day. If during the day you notice that the grease appears, do not retouch with more makeup; With a handkerchief, gently remove the shine or use translucent powders to tint and seal the makeup.
Try to keep your body hydrated. Do not stop drinking water throughout the day, because when the body has enough fluid, the fat that the skin produces secretes a natural glow, not an excess of it.
Wash your face with neutral soap
Do not use the same soap with which you wash your body. Buy a special one for acne and shine or choose any neutral bar; These are free of oil, perfumes and dyes, which irritate and cause grease and shine to appear. Dry with a special towel.
Change the pillowcases
Do it at least every week and try to make them cotton. You will prevent the bacteria from staying in one place for a long time and reproducing. You will give a break to the face and you will avoid acne.
Do not touch your face all day
Avoid, as far as possible, touching your face. If you are going to do it, try to wash your hands before. Sometimes it is very easy to remove the excess fat with your palms or fingers, but doing it that way will only cause the bacteria to spread on your face.
