Skincare Routine for Oily Skin

Oily skin can be difficult. There is no greater (beauty) disappointment than starting the day with a fresh complexion that turns into oil slick territory by noon. Too much can make your skin heavy and blemish. While it’s important not to strip your skin of its natural oils, too much oil can lead to rashes, whiteheads, blackheads, and other issues.

OILY Skincare Routine:

1) Gentle Facial Cleanser:

A great facial cleanser for oily skin will break down makeup and remove excess oil, all without drying out the skin. This gives your oily skin a clean slate for the rest of your routine to work effectively.
The backbone of your skincare routine should be good cleansing. Deep cleansing keeps the skin free of excess oil, dirt, sweat, and makeup, and leaves a nice clean base for your acne treatment products.

2) Toning

Toners and astringents are used after cleansing, to leave your skin feeling fresh. Astringents are specially designed to remove excess sebum from the skin. Some also contain anti-blemish ingredients like salicylic acid.
The best tonic for oily skin is packed with antioxidants and regenerating ingredients that all skin types need. This key step helps revitalize oily skin in a healthy way while minimizing the appearance of large pores and removing the last traces of makeup that can lead to clogged pores.

3) Exfoliate:

Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in an oily skincare routine. Oily skin tends to have a very thick layer of dead skin accumulated on the surface and gentle exfoliation is the only way to remove this buildup and reduce clogged pores. For oily skin, we highly recommend 2% BHA in liquid form, which not only exfoliates your skin surface but also the inside of the pore lining.

4) Face Moisturizer With SPF:

Sunscreen is essential for reducing the risk of early signs of aging and skin cancer, no matter what your skin type.
Using a moisturizer with SPF will help hydrate your skin while protecting it from the sun. Look for one that has an SPF value of 30 or more. Also, choose products that are non-comedogenic and specially formulated for the face
