Beauty Review : 6 Jenis Perawatan Wajah Yang Harus Dilakukan Kulit Berminyak

(photo credit : google, marie claire)

Hello semuanya! Sebagaimana kalian tahu, aku selalu mention jenis kondisi kulit aku. Kulit aku memiliki jenis kondisi kulit kombinasi. Seringkali wajah aku berminyak sekali. Bahkan aku sempat kontrol ke salah satu klinik wajah dan dokter berkata memang hormone di badanku suka tidak stabil atau tidak seimbang. Wajah berminyak merupakan salah satu masalah yang paling menggangu penampilan wanita. Nah, kali ini aku akan membagi beberapa informasi mengenai perawatan wajah dengan jenis kondisi kulit berminyak (tentunya dalam Bahasa Indonesia).

Ada banyak factor yang menyebabkan kulit wajah kamu berminyak, hormone yang tidak seimbang atau pemakaian kosmetik yang tidak tepat dan sesuai dengan jenis kulit wajah kamu. Bagi kamu yang memiliki kulit berminyak memang tidak boleh sembarangan, ada baiknya kamu beralih ke produk perawatan kulit berminyak atau produk dengan label oil free. 

Berikut ini adalah tips untuk memilih produk perawatan wajah bagi kamu yang memiliki kulit berminyak :

1. Untuk sabun cuci muka, kamu bisa memakai semua jenis sabun cuci muka yang ada di pasaran, atau jika memang produksi minyak diwajah kamu terlalu berlebih kamu juga bisa memakai produk sabun cuci muka yang mengandung  salicylic acid, beta-hydroxy acid, glycolic acid atau benzoyl peroxide. Selain itu kamu cukup mencuci muka kamu dengan sabun cuci muka di pagi dan malam hari, ini adalah cara paling efektif untuk mengurangi minyak di wajah kamu.

2. Wajah berminyak bukan berarti tidak harus memakai pelembab wajah, pelembab wajah berfungsi untuk menjaga kulit wajah kamu dari efek penuaan dini. Kamu bisa memilih pelembab yang mengandung oil free atau menggunakan pelembab yang ringan.

3. Jangan lupa untuk selalu sedia kertas minyak di tas kamu. Kertas minyak ini sangat membantu kamu untuk menyerap minyak yang ada di wajah kamu tanpa membuat wajah kamu terlihat kering.

4. Pilihlah kosmetik yang tidak mengandung minyak atau oil free. Kamu juga bisa memilih kosmetik dengan kandungan water based atau noncomedogenic, selain itu kosmetik dengan bentuk powder yang mengandung mineral sangatlah cocok bagi kulitmu yang berminyak. Usahakan untuk memakai produk kosmetik dengan bahan dasar krim, karena akan membuat wajah kamu semakin terlihat berminyak.

5. Sun-cream merupakan salah satu item yang wajib kamu pakai, semua jenis kulit harus memakai sun-cream apalagi jika kamu memiliki banyak aktifitas diluar ruangan. Nah untuk kamu yang memiliki kulit berminyak, kamu bisa memilih sun-cream dengan bahan dasar gel serta tidak mengandung minyak.

6. Jika produk dipasaran tidak juga ampuh mengatasi kulit berminyak kamu, mungkin ini saatnya untuk kamu pergi konsultasi ke dokter kulit. Biasanya dokter akan meresepkan krim khusus yang mengandung adapalene, tazarotene atau tretinoin yang mampu mengatasi kulit berminyak. 

Jaga selalu kebersihan kulit berminyak kamu, dan jangan terlalu khawatir jika kamu memiliki kulit berminyak namun tidak berjerawat. Pemilik kulit berminyak ternyata cenderung memiliki kerutan yang lebih sedikit dibanding jenis kulit wajah lainnya. Jangan lupa juga untuk selalu merawat kulit wajah kamu dengan baik ya.

Cheers, Good luck!

Some of you might be have troubled skin, including harsh skin and comedo / blackheads problem. I get so many questions on my about what is my daily routine to remove it. I usually go to facial treatment at beauty clinic. It's not that cheap either, that's why I can't do it every week or every month. The problem of my skin is my skin type. I have a super sensitive skin, I can't do often of facial scrub either.

The only solution is taking care of my skin by good cleansing at home and do face mask routine. I always prefer natural or less chemical products.

Beauty Review : ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder - Fiji-matte

I've been using this blush and bronzing powder duo for the past 2 months. I bought this when I was staying in Thailand. I decided to put a review because I already feel comfortable with it for the past 2 months. I don't want to put review after just few days using this product.

ELF blushes are reminding me of NARS blushes. Many people tell that ELF blushes are exactly dupes of NARS. Well, some of them are. But I am not sure about this one. As far as I know, this product is amazing on me. Especially for people who prefer natural and peachy color makeup. It's not becoming overwhelming on me either.

ELF products mostly are affordable. As students, I really feel this is going to change my life. I don't need to push myself buy super expensive makeup products out there if the quality of ELF products are getting better and better.

Positive Points :
  • Affordable! Price is around THB 308 / US$4 / Rp 115.000,- (click here for more!)
  • Great pigmentation for natural flush pink color on your cheek.
  • Minimalist packaging.
  • Travel friendly packaging.
  • Not easy to get broken (if you accidentally drop it).
  • You can order it from their official website with Free Shipping, including to Indonesia.
Negative Points :
  • Maybe it's not that easy to find them in stores, especially here in Indonesia. The solution is you are not living in or near downtown area : order ELF products online.
  • So far so good. I don't have any negative points to share about this product. Fiji Matte is actually ELF's best seller product. No doubt at all!
