Have you ever noticed that the face tends to get much oiler after riding a bike or jogging? As much physically active one wants to stay, definitely nobody likes the oily skin and acne on the face.
This issue is quite common and not only among teenagers. It has been found that environmental and dietary factors are key to development of acne in adults and it seems that the dirt, bacteria and pollution in our surroundings simply cannot be avoided.
The best would be to make some dietary changes, avoid refined sugars, and wash the face with a cleanser on a regular basis. But, not all cleaners are equal. Some of them are loaded with chemicals which are harsh and dangerous for the skin.
Some ingredients strip the skin and deprive it of the natural oils which are needed for skin`s protection. For example, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), an ingredient which is found in many skincare products, has been shown to encourage bacteria mutations, dry the skin out, and even weaken the immune system.
There are numerous products on the market but making the right choice and choosing the right product can be quite difficult. Therefore, it seems that making your own, homemade face wash is the best thing you can do about your skin.
