Oily Skin Care Tips
A diet rich in green leafy vegetables and restricted in sugar and salt can help to keep oily skin from becoming a problem. A healthy diet rich in nutrients will help to keep skin nourished and hydrated. Vitamins deficiencies, such as a vitamin B2 deficiency can cause oily skin. Good sources of vitamin B2 are whole grains, beans, nuts, wheat germ and royal jelly. Buckwheat, black beans and whole rice are excellent to supply the body with iron and rejuvenate pate skin. Drinking plenty of purified water will help to move nutrients and waste through your system more efficiently. Avoid sugar, alcohol, soft drinks, chocolate, and junk food.
