The one thing worse than oily skin is wrinkles. The best thing for wrinkles is botox. But what are the side effects of botox and can it help oily skin? Oily face drags a lot of question for itself, like why do you have it and how could you prevent it. Unfortunately, it is impossible to know how and why do you get oily, but we do know one thing for sure – you cannot get rid of it, no matter what you do. Also, it is not true that if you consume some products that are based on oil, your skin will not produce more oil. What we do know are things which we, in case we have the oily skin, can do and which things we cannot do or should avoid at least.
What can you do if you have the oily skin?
Salicylic acid is great for penetrating the pores and removing fats, which eventually result in blackheads, due to clogged pores. You can wash your face with cleansers that contain this acid, and you will be fine, plus your skin will be less oily.
A lot of people use retinoid because it can lower sebum production. Avoid to use it during the day, but only during the night. The reason for this is because you sleep at night, and your skin “works less” to say so that retinoid will reduce blackheads.
Blotting paper is also a great asset for your skin because it contains a small amount of powder and it can absorb the extra oil without washing your face. The blotting paper is a great alternative to women who need to wash their face when they are wearing makeup.
Things you shouldn’t do or use
The first thing you should avoid is creamy cleansers. These cleansers have extra oil, so your skin will be even more oily. Stick to salicylic acid or softer cleansers like Cetaphil. Don’t moisturize! An additional moist to your already oily skin will make things much worse. Instead, go for a gel that contains anti-aging ingredients. Replenix CF serum is also a good alternative.
Don’t wash your skin too often! If you wash your face twice a day let’s say, you will not remove the essential oils that protect your skin for external irritants and bacteria. Washing your face too often will cause your face to be reddish and raw and could even be itchy. Wash your face twice a day, using blotting paper, and you will not remove all the essential oily ingredients that protect your face.
Staying nice and good looking in spite of the aging process requires from you to either perform a mix of exercises combined with various diets or to arrange a face treatment every now and then. However, face treatment is something that almost every woman likes and arranges once in a while. Some say it is not healthy while others say that face treatment not only makes you look nice and young but also makes your face skin much healthier. Let’s speak about the pros of the face treatment.
Cleansing – improving your skin’s overall condition
This kind of treatment makes your skin on the face much healthier. Most women start with aromatherapies and massages with facial creams, as well as other remedies, that clean your skin and remove toxins that are collected in your pores.
These toxins come from grease and dirt that is all around us in our environment. Cleaning our face reduces the sebum, a substance that is naturally released to moisture and lubricate the skin. Cleansing facials open the pores, remove the dead skin and toxins, making your face skin younger and healthier.
Increased blood flow or circulation
Facial treatments will improve the blood flow in your skin, which will increase the level of oxygen-rich blood cells. The increased oxygen flow gives your skin glow and enriches the skin with nutritional elements like blood, vitamins or minerals. It means your skin, if has enough nutrients, will look younger and healthier due to developing new skin cells.
Relaxation for your brain and muscles
During the facial treatment, the professional will also massage your face, which will relax your muscles and your state of mind. Aromatherapy relieves your from the accumulated stress and makes your mind peaceful.
Oils that are used during aromatherapy have proved their qualities regarding relaxation. According to a research, each aromatherapy will prolong your life for one year.
Visible anti-aging effects
First of all – there is no remedy for aging. However, facial treatments reduce skin-aging process and slow it down a little bit. Anti-aging creams, in combination with the advanced technologies, can significantly slow down the aging process. Some of these advance technologies include laser treatment like DermaWand and Oxylight.
Laser treatments are the best for removing dead and damaged skin and enhancing the production of collagen – a substance that is responsible for healthy cells.
Almost 90% of women have a problem with cellulite, which is not a problem of weight. Almost all people have cellulite; it’s just that they have smaller amounts, so we don’t notice it. Cellulite is actually a lump or package of fat that shows up on the surface by pushing through the layers of fibers. Many women want to remove this unwanted fat, so they undergo to the different treatments. We will write about the three effective methods that gave positive results in the shortest possible time.
Cellulaze – The first FDA approved treatment for cellulite
A small laser tube goes under the skin of a patient and as the laser heats up, it melts the lumps of fat and softens the tissue. This method is very effective but it costs a lot. Just a one treatment can cost up to $6,000 – the price range actually depends on the scale of area that is being treated.
High energy radial shockwaves – Zwave treatment
This is one of the newest methods for treating the cellulite and it is less expensive than the previous one. The radial shockwaves of high energy affect the cellulite area, which leads to the issue breakdown and then to a collapse in the gas bubbles inside the fat. Zwave treatment is multi-session treatment, but after 6 or 7 treatments, you could lose pretty much large amount of cellulite. Just for the record – one treatment costs $350.
Vanquish method – radiofrequency treatment
Radiofrequency energy is aimed to the cellulite area which destroys the pockets of cellulite without damaging your skin, tissue of muscles in any way. The Vanqish device is aimed at the targeted area but the device is not touching the body. It is the safest type of treatment.
This treatment if usually combined with Zwave method to achieve the best possible results. If you decide to go with this treatment, don’t be surprised in case you feel a slightly warm feeling – it is just the heating of the device that melts the fat. A 30-minute session will cost you anywhere from $500 to $800.
It is the method that is originally developed in Europe for treating inflammatory skin conditions. You get the injections which cointain viamins, minerals or enzymes directly into your tissue below the skin.
This method is the least safe since it can produce negative side effects like swelling or infection due to the intolerance to the needles.
