Have you ever heard the old wive’s tale that says “Oily skin ages slower than other skin types”? While there may be some truth to this idea, Oily skin isn’t safe from aging. Where wrinkles and fine lines may be less severe, you'll often find enlarged pores and dark spots galore.
But there is a way to avoid (or even treat) these aging signs that come with having Oily skin. If you’ve suffered the woes of oiliness and acne in your younger years and want to do your best to avoid the aging process that is typical of this skin type, make sure you pay attention to these tips and tricks!
Enlarged pores may not be the most common concern associated with aging, but some say it is one of the worst to deal with. People with Oily skin naturally have larger pores, but as we age and the skin starts to lose elasticity, the problem can become worse than we would have ever imagined.
But paying close attention to your cleansing schedule could help! By cleansing your skin twice daily, you can make sure your skin stays as dirt-free as possible, helping to keep your pores tighter and less visible. Using a powerful cleanser that erases all signs of dirt and impurities - like the Lavender Oil Cleanser - is not only great for the overall health of your skin, but it can also help prevent your pores from getting larger and sticking out like a sore thumb!
Don’t Underestimate Dark Spots
What many people may not know about oily skin is that it’s known to produce more melanin than other skin types. This means more Dark Spots and hyperpigmentation, which can ruin your hopes of having a clear and even skin tone and be one of the most stubborn symptoms of aging to treat.
Of course, making sure that you apply SPF daily is important, but that’s only half the battle. The other half is using a gentle yet powerful Dark Spot treatment like the Dark Spot Corrector to help lighten and brighten blemishes and spots. Treatments that contain ingredients like Vitamin C can be particularly helpful if you want to help diminish hyperpigmentation and create a radiant, clear complexion!
Don’t Forget About Your Eyes
People with Oily skin indeed tend to develop Wrinkles and Fine lines slower than other skin types, but this isn’t the case when it comes to the Eye Area. Crow’s feet and dark circles don’t discriminate against any skin type - we’re all doomed to fend off the pesky signs of aging at some point or another.
But there's no cause for alarm because you can treat these signs of aging by using the Eye Recovery Serum to help get rid of puffy eyes, crow’s feet and dark circles. If you’re after a brightened and lively under-eye area, all you need is a consistent application of a smoothing and reviving eye serum twice daily to make you look and feel alert and awake throughout the day. As long as you keep it up, you’ll have your eye area looking and feeling refreshed in no time!
All of this goes to show that Oily skin may not have to face some aging signs as quickly as other skin types do, but it still needs special care and comes with problems of its own. As long as you are committed to your routine and following these tips, you’ll quickly start to see that taking care of your skin type's specific needs is completely worth the extra effort!
