I have well water an I have oily skin an oily hair when I get up in the mornings my hair is a orange rust color an very wired and my skin is very oily when I get out of the shower

The reason for your hair going rusty orange is the well water. Well water has a lot of iron as compared to regular or tap water. This kind of water is known as hard water. No matter how much conditioner or shampoo you, use, it always comes back. This water even stains bath tubs and sinks. What you can do to get rid of the color is using Vinegar and Baking soda. Mix them together, put them in some shampoo, and apply on the hair. You can also use water softeners to convert hard water to regular water.

Oily Skin:

Oily skin is known to age slower than regular skin and this is one of its greatest advantages. However, here are a few things you can try to keep you skin oil in check.

Oily skin would require a different kind of cleansing. You need to use a lot of soap and hot water to stop the pores in your skin from getting clogged. Do not use products that are harsh and remove skin oil completely. This may cause blockages and further .Use moisturizers that are oil-free as it would help you maintain a complexion that is shine-free.

You must maintain a clean skin at all times. Wash you face often, especially when you return home from any outdoor activity. Excessive washing will cause the skin to generate more oil.

Here are a few remedies you can also try at home:

About 30 minutes before you bath, mix half a teaspoon each, of cucumber juice and lime and apply on your face. You could also add some 2-3 drops of eau de cologne to the solution. This will help in keeping the oiliness at bay and also in refining the pores in your skin. To get rid of excess oil, apply a clay or mud mask. Mix 1 teaspoon of raw honey and 1 teaspoon of green clay powder. Apply this pack on your face but avoid the eyes. Leave this pack on for 15 minutes.

Oily Hair : Here are a few remedies for oily hair.

  • Alcoholic beverages have a drying effect on hair. Mix a shot-glass full of your choice of alcohol, preferably beer, into 2 cups of water and rinse your hair with the mix.
  • Soak your hair in small basin full of water with about a quarter cup of cider vinegar. Wash your hair with warm water after 5 minutes.
