5 Ways Men Can Get Rid Of Shiny, Greasy Skin

No powdering required!


No powdering required!
Clogged pores, shiny skin, breakouts, and a greasy feel—all unfortunate things that men with oily skin have to deal with. Here’s how you can deal:
1. Real men use facial wash.

Although regular bar soap—and your girl’s facial wash—can clean your skin, it won’t get rid of the oil and dirt that’s trapped in your pores as thoroughly. A man’s skin is thicker and naturally produces more grease, so swap it for a facial wash that contains mineral clay (it can remove 95% of excess oil).

2. You need moisturizer. Really.

When your skin is dry, it will produce more oil to compensate. When hunting down a moisturizer, read the labels and look for keywords like “oil control”—that’s the trick to ensuring that your skin won’t turn into a major grease fest. 


3. Just bring some tissue.
Here’s one trick you can steal from the ladies: Grab a sheet of tissue and separate it so that you’re left with one ply. A single sheet can absorb oil a lot better, so press and dab it over your T-zone if you’re looking slick. 

4. Watch your diet.
We’re not asking you to swear off pizza and chips completely. Just balance it out by adding more fruits, whole grains, and veggies when snacking. Our top reco: cucumbers. It has antioxidant properties, and because it’s 95% water, it can help rehydrate your body from within and flush out toxins. 

5. Make it a routine.
Doing these tips once or twice a week won’t really give you the results you want. Good skin takes hard work and if you want to manage your skin type, you’ll have to cleanse and moisturize twice a day, every day.
