Facial care for men with oily skin I

As we have already commented on several occasions, most men have mixed skin and a a very considerable part also has oily.

La mixed skin It is still a hybrid between normal skin and oily, so when presenting some characteristics of the oily, the kind of face care for combination skin is applicable to the one we are discussing in this series of articles for the oily skin care.

In any case, the facial care for oily skin It can't be the same especially in men, than that of normal skin or Dry Skin.

La oily It is distinguished by its excess of sebum, a lot of shine and fortunately few wrinkles. However, the tradeoff is premature flaccidity that usually present the mixed skins y Oily skin.

Due to a lower number of wrinkles, it seems that a oily don't get old so fast. If it is judged in this way, then we could say that it is so, however, if one does not pay attention to a proper facial care for oily skinplatforms, aging process and appearance of wrinkles, although it may appear later, will appear much more suddenly, and the feeling of aging of the skin will be much more pronounced.

If face care for oily skin is not suitable, the following problems may occur:

  1. dehydrated oily skin
  2. Excess sebum, shine.
  3. Premature sagging.
    In this article we will focus on the first case: on the dehydrated oily skin and desquamation of the oily.


    In the next two articles, we will focus on the section 2 (excess sebum and shine), And in the section 3 (premature flaccidity).

    1. Oily dehydrated skin

    It may seem strange that a oily can suffer a dehydration more or less temporary in its lower layers, but it is much more common than we think.

    Esto manifests itself in the form of redness and even desquamation and it is a sign that the skin is unbalanced. The cause may lie in the type of facial cleansing we are doing.

    As we have already commented, the men with oily skin We tend to wash our faces more frequently to remove shine and sweat.

    En Homo Naturals we always say that the facial care always goes through a good cleaning and that we should never apply a anti-aging Cream without having cleaned the face before.

    However, the root of a dehydrated oily skin may reside in the type of product that we may be using to perform our facial cleansing.. We must bear in mind that the skin on our face is 5 times thinner than that of our body. This means that the product we use to clean our faces must also be much more respectful.

    We must pay attention that the facial cleansing products do not contain sulfates and do not have too high a pH (pH 5.5 being ideal).

    If we use a conventional bar soap or too aggressive soap for our skin, apart from unbalance it and cause redness and flaking already mentioned, the skin will react to protect itself by generating even more sebum, that is, generating more oil, and creating a rebound effect contrary to what is desired.

    The first step is always facial cleansing

    That's why we always say that to clean oily skin you have to do it with a product as respectful as possible with the skin of our face.

    It is important that deep clean to remove impurities, pollution and sweat, but you must do it without unbalancing the skin.

    It is not easy to find in the market a face cleaner that meets all these requirements.

    Our facial cleanser for men's skin contains only natural ingredients dermoprotectors such as Aleo Vera bio and chamomile bio that They will help soothe your skin and prevent it from becoming unbalanced..

    Of course it's a sulfate free facial cleanser. It has a pH value of 5 so as not to destroy the natural protective barrier of your skin and to keep it always healthy.

    Cleanliness is the most important aspect of facial care, regardless of the type of skin you have.

    With other types of cleaning products, you have to be careful and not use them too much because they can be very aggressive.

    Men with oily skin, in summer we like to wash our faces sometimes more than twice a day, precisely to avoid shine.

    With face cleaner Extra Gent's, we can wash our face as many times as we want, since we will keep it clean and purified, but at the same time, we will maintain its hydrolipidic mantle (its natural protection layer), as important to prevent external aggressions, and, therefore, the premature aging.

    How often should men wash their faces?

    We men should wash our faces 2 times a day: every morning and every night. It is very important that we wash our faces always before applying our facial gel or moisturizer. Otherwise, if we apply the anti-aging Cream Without having previously washed our faces, we will re-introduce the toxins that it has eliminated through the skin, together with the accumulated pollution and dirt, into our body.

    Can I increase the frequency of facial washing if I have oily skin?

    If you have oily skin, you can increase the frequency of facial cleansing without any problem. That is, if during the day you feel that due to sweat or excess oil secretion, your skin needs additional cleaning, there is no problem.
    However, in this case you must be extremely careful with the type of facial cleanser you are using. It is very important that you use a sulfate-free facial cleanser with pH5 like our Extra Gent's, formulated only with soothing plant extracts such as Aloe Vera and organic Chamomile. It also has sea salt to remineralize your skin.
