Traveling, especially on an airplane, will certainly take a toll on your skin. With just a few simple steps, you can arrive at your final destination with a complexion that looks fabulous and refreshed.
Have you ever boarded an airplane looking fabulous and landed looking like you’ve aged 10 years? Well, you’re not alone. Airplane cabins have extremely low humidity that can cause our skin to become dehydrated quickly. The re-circulated dry air in the cabin is on a search for moisture and that search usually ends with our skin being sucked dry. Not only will dry skin become drier but oily skin can become even oilier. Seems crazy, but it’s true. When skin loses its water, it tends to produce more oil to compensate for the loss. So what can we do to look after our skin? Read on to learn a few simple skin care tips for air travel. Keep Reading
Whether it’s the weather, genetics, or hormones, we all get a little extra shine on our faces at times. Here are six essential tips to keep oily skin under control.
Oily skin occurs when sebaceous glands produce a high level of sebum (oil) on the skin. Often, people with oily skin have large pores, and are more prone to acne as well as shine. Anyone who’s ever experienced greasy or oily skin knows that it can be frustrating to deal with at times. But if you have oily skin, don’t fret too much, because there is one major positive to having naturally oily skin – it’s less prone to looking wrinkled than dry skin. The oil keeps skin moist, which keeps the appearance of wrinkles at bay – always a good thing!
As far as the cause of oily skin, there are many reasons our skin can get a little shiny from time to time. If you live in a tropical climate, there is natural humidity in the air, making it easy for your oil production to go into overdrive. And, if you enjoy a dry climate, you may still experience oily skin because you’re genetically predisposed. Oily skin could also be due to hormonal changes (which are most often seen in a person’s teens/early 20s). You could also have combination skin – meaning that some areas of your face are oily, and some are dry.
Regardless of the cause of your oily skin, there are ways to mitigate the shine and make your skin appear more matte. Keep Reading
