Homemade moisturizer for oily skin

The use of moisturizers is highly recommended if you want to protect your skin against possible loss of moisture and preserve its elasticity and youthfulness for many years to come. Ideally moisturizers are applied after a thorough cleansing and toning of your skin. It is the first thing that you should apply before makeup to serve as a protective base for your skin. Those with dry skins should apply moisturizers even under a face pack as their skin has less lubrication compared to other types. Here’s how you can make a light moisturizing cream which is gentle blend of waxes and oils. This economical, easy to make cream is specially suited for oily skin.
Moisturizing cream for oily skin
1 ½ tsp almond oil
1 tsp lanolin
½ tbsp olive oil
1 ½ tbsp emulsifying wax
2 tsp glycerin
6 tbsp rose water
Melt waxes using double boiling method and add almond and olive oil. Stir in glycerine and rose water slowly. Continue to stir until the mixture is thick. Apply moisturizer lavishly all over your face, forehead, not forgetting the centre of your brows and neck.

    My skin is very sensitive and acne prone and I've tried many moisturizers in my search for one that won't make me break out and that will go with my topical acne gel. For awhile I even just gave up on moisturizing - but I tan frequently so that isn't a solution. My best choice is Alba Botanica - Green Tea & Aloe Oil-Free Moisturizer. My skin is actually in better condition with an even tone after I use it, and it feels so soft

    Oily skins can be treated or prevented by proper hygiene. You can do it by regular washing of your face and also a hot and cold shower after a strenuous activity where delicate parts of your body were affected. Sweating is normal for everybody. If you don't sweat, you need to take your exercise to keep you better in shape and of course sustain a glowing skin.
