Skincare: Taming the oily skin

Skincare: Taming the oily skin

I’m constantly struggling with my face’s oily skin. Without using a few products, my face gets super oily  few minutes after leaving the house. I have now made the decision to seek a long term solution not just the everyday matte setting sprays. Ofcourse I am still going to use those if I have to but I have been on the search for something that will deal with the real problem. Calling it a problem because when you have oily skin it means your pores easily clog and it is acne prone .

Having used Tea tree oil from the body shop tea tree line before and after getting recommendations under one of my instagram posts I decided to get more products from the line and give them a try. It has not been long since I started using these but I can already see and feel the difference. My pores are not as open and the overall texture of my skin has changed.

These three are the products from the body shop tea tree line I am currently using:

Mattifying lotion

I use it during the day because of its mattifying abilities and it leaves the skin less oily  for at least 8 hours. I apply it in place of a moisturizer so it also helps with holding the oil from giving me a shinny face.

Skin clearing clay mask

This is a clay mask combined with tea tree oil. It instructs that it should be used once or twice a week. On application it leaves the skin fresher and the texture softer . Also the pores appeared to be tighter. It has cooling and mattifying properties and this is quite visible when I use it.

Tea tree Oil

I made a face mist from this oil, it is something I have been using for a while and the tea tree properties treat signs of acne. I made and use the mist to hydrate the skin instead of applying the oil directly on the affected areas as most do.

I wanted to get the toner too but it wasn’t available when I went to purchase these.

Looking forward to incorporating more tea tree oil products onto my skincare routine and share with you the full routine because I am always on the search for better products.

For those in Dar, these products are all available at @zuriihouseofbeauty, Dar free market at the price range of  40,000 to 45,000 tzs .
