A Man’s Guide to Treating Oily Skin

 Men are far more likely to have oily skin than women which would explain why they’re more prone to conditions such as acne. While there’s no way to stop your skin from producing too much oil, there are steps that you can take to control your skin’s condition. 

Top Tips for Treating Oily Skin

Make some changes to your skincare regime

Oily skin requires very specific skincare products, so if you aren’t already, it’s time to switch to skincare products that are specifically designed to treat oily skin. Cleansers that contain tea tree oil, sulfur or salicylic acid are great for getting rid of excess oil. Along with cleansing your skin twice a day, you may also want to use an alcohol-free toner to get rid of any remaining bacteria. Lastly, don’t forget to apply a moisturiser – it’s still important even though you have oily skin.
Exfoliate once a week

If you want to stop the excess oil from clogging your pores, exfoliate your skin once a week. There are a number of great oil-free scrubs that will remove any dead skin cells and clear your pores of excess oil.

Speak to a Professional

Let’s face it, changing up your skincare regime isn’t always easy, especially when you don’t know which treatments and products are best for your skin. For an example, scheduling a men’s grooming at Man Cave Sydney will give you a good starting point for enjoying better skin.

Try facial masks at home

Along with scheduling regular facials with a professional clinician, you can always apply a facial mask at home every other week. Facial treatments help soak up the excess oil, which reduces that noticeable shine. Look for ingredients such as honey or shea butter if you will be purchasing a mask to use at home. 

Look into oil-control paper

Tired of ending up with oily skin halfway through your day? Oil-control paper can be a lifesaver, particularly if you have a big event or work commitment coming up and want to look your best. 

Consider medication 

It’s highly recommended that you develop a new skin treatment plan before you consider taking medication for your skin, but know that it is an option. If nothing is working, speak to your doctor about medications that can be used to decrease oil production.

Schedule a laser therapy treatment

Along with a professional men’s grooming clinic being able to advise you on the right products to use for your skin, you may also find that you’d benefit from laser therapy treatments. The heat from the laser can be used to target the sebaceous glands, which produce the oil appearing on your skin. 
If you are struggling with oily skin, it’s important to take action as soon as you can if you want to avoid further complications such as acne, enlarged pores and lines and wrinkles. There is always a way to treat oily skin but what works for one person may not work for you, which is why it helps to speak to a professional.
