5 natural ingredients to combat oily skin

Standard

Breakouts? Check out these 5 natural ingredients to combat oily skin.

We all know the importance of taking care of our skin, and that different skin types have different preferences and needs.

 

Of all skin types, oily can often be the most difficult to take care of – a constant shine, the urge to touch your face to remove the excess oil, and of course, dreaded spots!

 

However, not all hope is lost, as there are some amazing natural ingredients that can be found in many skincare products, or used alone, that can aid in combating that excess oil, and help keep your skin balance itself.

 

Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #1 – Seaweed

 

Seaweed is perfect for oily skin and has some well-renowned oil-balancing properties. On top of this, it can actually help to dry out existing blemishes, while keeping your skin moisturised at the same time with its high content of vitamins and minerals.

 

Seaweed exfoliators are great at penetrating deep into the skin, and buffing away that excess oil and dead skin cells that are left on the surface – revealing soft, healthy skin underneath.

 

For oily skin, seaweed is a well-loved natural ingredient, and because of this, it can be found in a variety of skincare products across the board.

 

Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #2 – Lemon Juice

 

Strangely enough, lemon juice works wonders for oily skin, and is a well-loved remedy for drying out acne. You can use lemon juice as a toner, mixed with water, or as a treatment and leave it on your skin for a few minutes before washing off. Lemon juice can also help to lightening hyper-pigmentation and spot scarring which is more common with oily skin.

 

Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #3 – Tea Tree Oil

 

A well-known, extremely popular remedy for oily skin is tea tree oil. Its strong scent is a signature, but don’t let it put you off; similar to lemon juice, it will to dry out existing blemishes and excess oils, and has skin lightening qualities to combat hyper-pigmentation.

 

‘Tea Tree oil is a good antibacterial for skin!’ says skin expert and beauty therapist Hayley Lockwood, who has experience working with Clarins Skincare and Benefit Cosmetics – and this also ultimately helps to prevent any blemishes from occurring.

 

Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #4 – Charcoal

 

Charcoal is renowned for being able to deeply penetrate pores and clear out blackheads and impurities. For this reason, a vast amount of skincare products on the market that contain charcoal are face masks and cleansers.

 

Charcoal face masks in particular are often referred to as ‘detox’ masks, and they are extremely popular due to their ability to pull blackheads from the skin.

 

Combat Oily Skin Ingredient #5 – Clay

 

Clay face masks are brilliant for oily skin sufferers as they act like a sponge on the skin, soaking up all excess oil and leaving the skin fresh, oil-free but also moisturised after use.

 

Keeping moisture in your skin, even if it’s oily, is important because the less moisture you have in your skin, the more oil you will produce.

 

Therefore, it’s important to opt for products that help to remove your excess oil, but don’t strip your skin of its natural moisture, and clay is an ingredient that does this well. Some clays can actually reduce the appearance of pores too.

 

While oily skin can be a pain to look after, it’s important to keep to a structured skincare routine.

 

‘A good, thorough, routine is far better than one miracle claiming ingredient or product,’ says Suzie Melbourne from Senses Skin Care Centre.

 

So after using an oil-reducing product such as the ones mentioned above, remember to follow up with a toner and a moisturiser.

The Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother Exposed

Standard

There seems to be this trend in the world of wellness, in which the substance you’re supposed to consume basically has the most unappealing appearance, taste, and even texture to it.

 

And, of course, this is as true for apple cider vinegar as it is for all the other health trends out there right now.

 

I can’t lie to you. Apple cider vinegar looks, and sometimes even tastes, kind of nasty.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar is not dangerous to drink in moderation, but it can cause damage to your stomach lining or the enamel on your teeth.

 

But the benefits of ACV simply cannot be disputed. Research has found Apple Cider Vinegar does help patients with diabetes control blood sugar levels. Therefore, you have to learn how to look past the ugliness of this magical beverage.

 

Here’s why apple cider vinegar tends to look like it possibly went bad about a year ago.

 

First, my friends, I must teach you about the mother.

Not your mother, and no, not my mother, either.

 

“Mother” in apple cider vinegar is basically a collection of bacteria that’s actually responsible for turning apple cider into ACV.

 

The mother in a bottle of the good stuff signifies how organic, wholesome, and pure the substance is.

 

If your apple cider vinegar doesn’t have the mother, leave it alone.

It looks nasty, but your ACV needs that foundation to work its magic on your body — it all starts with the mother.

 

Bragg, one of the top brands to sell apple cider vinegar, explains the purpose of the mother best:

 

The mother is the dark, cloudy substance in the ACV formed from naturally occurring pectin and apple residues — it appears as molecules of protein connected in strand-like chains.

 

The presence of the mother shows that the best part of the apple has not been destroyed. Vinegars containing the mother contain enzymes and minerals that other vinegars may not contain due to over-processing, filtration and overheating.

 

The mother in ACV is filled with probiotics, which is why apple cider vinegar aids with digestion and constipation.

 

The mother truly is the life of it all, from lowering blood sugar, to whitening your teeth, and even clearing your skin — mama (OK I know, it’s mother, but you get me) has you covered.

 

So really, the murkier and more unrefined the ACV looks, the more trustworthy it is.

 

According to Wellness Mama, clear and pasteurized vinegars typically do not contain the mother culture, and thus don’t carry the same benefits as apple cider vinegar.

 

Trust the ACV mother just as much as you trust your own mother.

It only has your best interest at heart.
