The Use Of Apple Cider Vinegar For Sensitive And Oily Faces?
Noon I want to ask. My face is sensitive and oily. Is it safe not to use apple cider vinegar? What products are suitable for oily and sensitive skin like my face? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Apple vinegar is claimed to have several health benefits. However, among the many claims of the benefits of apple cider vinegar, not all of these benefits are proven in scientific research. One of them is the claim of the benefits of apple vinegar for facial toner and for overcoming acne. Although apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid and malic acid which are known to have antimicrobial properties and can help reduce the appearance of acne and help remove dead skin cells and accelerate skin turnover, there are no studies that prove the effectiveness and safety of using apple cider vinegar for skin care.
In addition, you should know that apple vinegar is not made for cosmetic purposes. Apple vinegar has acidic properties which, if used inadvertently (especially on sensitive skin parts such as facial skin), can actually cause irritation to the skin until the skin burns. Medically, the use of apple cider vinegar for facial skin care has not been recommended.
If your facial skin is an oily type of facial skin, then you can do the following tips:
wash your face regularly, do not need too often, just 2 times a day, morning and night
choose facial care products that are intended for oily skin
avoid rubbing your face too hard
You can choose facial cleansing products that containmontaline C40, panthenol or vitamin B5 to reduce the production of excess oil on the face
Exfoliate the face (for example using a scrub) but not every day, just 2-3 times a week
Even though your facial skin is oily, your skin still needs good hydration, so make sure you use a facial moisturizer also in your facial care series
You can choose facial moisturizers that are intended for oily skin types
Before using a new facial treatment product, you should do a test first to see if your skin matches the product. You can use facial care products behind your ears first and leave them overnight. If there is no redness or itching in the area, you can continue to use the product on the side of your temple and leave it overnight. If there is no skin reaction whatsoever, then the possibility of the product is safe for you to use. Keep an eye on your skin's reaction when using the product. If when using skin products your face becomes red, swollen, and itchy, you should stop using the product.
If severe irritation occurs on the face due to the use of certain facial care products, consult a dermatologist.
