No one likes to be judged by their skin but when you suffer from oily skin it can be particularly worrisome because of all the problems that can come with it. Waking up with fresh new blemishes, an unnatural shine to your skin and a greasy feeling are all unfortunate outcomes. Although some people have oily skin naturally, there are steps you can take to minimize the effects and reverse some of the problematic issues (such as blackheads and pimples).
Before looking into how to solve the problem, let’s take a moment to examine the root causes. By understanding what produces oily skin, you can better develop an effective treatment plan. In its simplest definition, oily skin is caused by overactive oil glands in the skin producing too much of your skin’s natural moisturizer, sebum. While it is important to have these natural oils to prevent dryness and cracking, it is important to control the amount of oil present at any given time. It is the build up of natural oils that leads to some of the main complaints people have about their skin.

Now that we have a basis for why this problem is occurring, what is the solution? Just as oil and water don’t mix in a bowl, water will not solve the oily residue problem on your face either. Patience is essential when trying to resolve any skin care issue and when it comes to oily skin, understanding that you may need to develop a permanent skin care regimen to prevent build up is important too. Oily skin issues may never be “fixed” but they can be maintained.
Cleansing your face with products specifically geared to your skin type will be the first and most important step you can take. Not all skin care products are designed to treat oily skin and some cleansers contain fatty acids that may actually make the condition worse so search carefully. Products containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids are designed to gently exfoliate the skin and will help to remove dead skin cells and build up on the face.
The less product containing oils and creams you apply to your face, the better off you will be. Most make ups and lotions contain oils and other ingredients that already clog the pores for someone without oily skin, by adding more oils on a regular basis; you are essentially adding fuel to a fire. If you can avoid it, try to limit your use of cosmetics and oil based products or search for specially formulated brands designated as oil-free.
By removing the excess oil, dirt and grime from your face on a regular basis you are already going to see some of the benefits of your labor. Of course as we stated earlier, the skin does need some oil to remain healthy and hydrated so after any cleansing or exfoliating it is important to follow that with an oil free moisturizer. The last thing you want to do is stimulate your glands to produce more oil to compensate for a lack of hydration in the skin cells.
With any skin care routine it is important to test products carefully and pay attention to your skins reaction. Any redness, itchy or irritation means you should discontinue use immediately and consult with your doctor about a possible allergy. If you have a particularly severe case of oily skin and over the counter remedies have not worked in the past, check with an esthetician or dermatologist regarding professional grade products.
Oily skin doesn’t have to make you self conscious any longer as long as you are patient and willing to take steps to control it before it controls you.

                With so much advertising and media today it is sometimes difficult to weed out fact from fiction. Companies will make claims about the effectiveness of their products and how it will dramatically reverse the hands of time but how can the average consumer really know the truth? Nina Howard believes that the real proof is in the results she sees in the mirror every day.

            A thirty second television ad can’t show the benefits of a product adequately. It can’t begin to explain to the emerging baby boomer generation that now is the time to take a stand against early signs of aging and put a stop to the detrimental effects it can have upon the skin. That is why the director of Bellanina, Nina Howard, is willing to be the poster child for the benefits of proper skin care.

            Nina has been faithfully using her products for over a decade. Daily cleansing, toning, moisturizing and correcting as needed has kept her skin youthful and vibrant. After attending her forty year class reunion she was named “Best Preserved” by her fellow classmates. This is not the result of an overnight magic wand treatment – this is the result of dedication to proper skin care and taking the time every morning to keep her skin looking fabulous every day!

            Aging is a natural process that can be affected by genetics and external factors. By knowing this and taking control of the situation as soon as possible it is within your grasp to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, decrease uneven skin tones and find a solution to redness, dry or cracked skin and other common problems. Don’t think of aging process as an inevitable decline in your appearance because it does not have to be. Aging is accumulation of wisdom and experience and by knowing that age your chronological age becomes just a number, not a punishment.

         Follow Nina’s example by not letting Mother Nature take control! Bellanina products are available in three wonderful lines including Botanicals, Naturals and Cosmeceuticals. Each line offers a range of products that will focus on specific skin care issues relevant to you and your needs.

         Take a page from Nina’s book and don’t let your age keep you down. With her high spirited dog, Ling Ling, trying to keep up, Nina spends her days working hard and isn’t letting anyone tell her to slow down and “act” her age. After all, you are only as old as you feel.
