Having oily skin is certainly no picnic. You have to take extra steps several times a day to make sure that your skin isn’t getting too shiny and you may feel embarrassed when it does. Luckily, there are things that can be done in order to help get rid of an oily face.
People commonly think that skin problems, like excess oil and acne, only affect young people in the midst of puberty. Sadly, this isn’t true. Skin problems and excess oil can affect anyone at any age.
Having too much oil on your skin can lead to several problems. For example, you may feel embarrassed about the situation and constantly powder your face in private as a result. Your pores may also become clogged. This can lead you to have large pores and mild to severe issues with acne.
It is important to be aware that your diet directly affects your skin. In order for your body to be functioning at its best, and for your skin to look its best, you need to eat and drink the right things. For example, if you drink plenty of water, you should notice a positive change in your skin. Water is essential for flushing out toxins and keeping your system happy.
You may also be lacking in certain key vitamins and healthy fats if you have oily skin. For instance, many people do not consume enough omega fatty acids in their regular diets. To get these into your diet, try eating flaxseed or fish. You can even take a supplement. Another vitamin that you should be interested in taking is B5. The best way to absorb this is by eating the right foods, but you can take vitamins if necessary.
If you’re struggling to calm your oily face, you should look to making certain dietary changes. You should also make sure that you get plenty of water and that you are consuming a balanced diet. BOLA TANGKAS
19-4-2011 The Works: Wet Plate Photography of Gavin Au
Gavin Au is a Hong Kong-based artist. In his first solo exhibition “Still sitting on the wall” he’s reflecting on recent events in mainland China and Hong Kong.He sees the exhibition as, in part, a dialogue with a series of photographs by Chinese photographer Weng Fen ten years ago. In his photos Weng was reflecting the state of change in China since it opened its doors to greater capitalism. All of the photos in Gavin’s exhibition were made using the 19th century “wet plate collodion process”, invented in 1851 by Frederick Scott Archer.
