Dr. Oz: Oily Skin
Dr. Oz talked about ways to moisturize for each different skin type. He talked to dermatologist Dr. Howard Brooks, who explained the oily skin type is usually people who have large pores, breakout with acne, and often have shiny skin.
Dr. Brooks said that people with oily skin still need to moisturize. If you deprive your skin of moisture, it’s going to produce more oil. Rinse your skin and use an SPF. But you don’t need to cleanse or soap your skin in the morning.
At night, you’ll want to use an oil-free gel wash and moisturizer.
Dr. Oz: Aspirin Honey Yogurt Mask
Dr. Brooks combined 3 crushed aspirin, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1 tablespoon yogurt to make a special aspirin honey yogurt mask for people with oily skin.
Dr. Oz: Treatment for Dry Skin
If you put a tissue to your forehead and it sticks, you probably have oily skin. If it falls off, you probably have dry skin. People with dry skin have small pores and dull, flaky skin. This makes you prone to fine lines.
Colleen has dry skin, especially in the winter. Dr. Brooks said it’s important for her to use a hydrating cleanser to use at night and rinse her face with warm water in the morning. The cleanser should contain things like ceramides, glycerin, or hyaluronic acid. Follow the cleanser with a moisturizing cream.
Grapeseed oil is full of antioxidants and it’s great to use after the shower to help seal in the moisture.
Dr. Oz: Oily Skin in the T Zone & Dry Skin Elsewhere
Next was the combination skin type, where you have oily skin in the T Zone and dry skin everywhere else. Dr. Brooks said this is the most common skin type he sees. He recommended rinsing the skin in the morning with warm water, then using a glyceride cream for the dry parts and a sunflower seed oil for elsewhere.
