Research has shown that there’s an easy fix for those suffering from oily skin and it has nothing to do with blotting papers. The key is hydrating as well as moisturizing the body not just on the outside, but also inwardly. By drinking enough water the skin can become hydrated, setting up a process that will result in stabilization of oil production.
When skin is properly moisturized, a message from the brain is sent to oil glands signaling that excess oil is no longer necessary. This is in turn slows down oil production in the skin culminating in the normalization of skin oils as well as fewer acne breakouts. Therefore, be sure to drink water regularly, between 64 and 80 ounces daily.
