If you have oily skin, the likelihood of a break out compared to other skin types is a lot higher. There’s nothing wrong with incorporating many different products into your skin care routine as long as they work for you. There’s also nothing wrong with using fewer products, especially if you’re looking to simplify your regimen.
Follow this guide on how to keep your skin care routine for oily skin as simple as possible:
Cleansing balm works perfectly for all skin types but it’s a great option if you have oily skin. If you feel that cleansing oils are a bit too rich or greasy for your skin then cleansing balm is the way to go.
Start your double cleansing routine with CREMORLAB’s T.E.N. Cremor Eau Thermale Cleansing Balm. It’s formulated with natural oils to help get rid of makeup and impurities, and Morocco lava clay to gently exfoliate. Its balm-to-oil formula washes off easily and it also features a soothing eucalyptus scent, making your cleansing experience even more relaxing.
For your main cleanse, opt for a gentle foaming cleanser like NEOGEN’s Dermalogy A-Clear Aid Soothing Face Cleanser that gets rid of excess sebum, especially around your T-zone areas. This is the perfect cleanser for oily skin as it’s packed with salicylic acid to help unclog pores and treat mild acne. While controlling excess oil production, this facial cleanser helps fortify your skin barrier and gives you a well-balanced complexion.
No matter what your skin type is, never skip your toner! Toners help restore your skin’s pH level post-cleansing, and also prep your skin for the rest of your routine. For oily skin, you need a toner that doesn’t just maintain your pH balance, but one that ensures that no trace of impurities is left behind.
For a toner that hydrates and soothes your skin while also purifying oily and breakout-prone skin, meet PURITO’s Centella Green Level Calming Toner. Containing centella asiatica extract, panthenol and witch hazel extract, this toner ensures your skin will feel nothing but calm and hydrated.
You know you’ve hit the jackpot when you find a moisturizer that hydrates your oily complexion without leaving a greasy feeling.
A moisturizer that’s worth adding to your skin care shelfie is Dr. Oracle’s 21;Stay A Thera Cream. It contains bamboo and celtic water that deeply hydrates your skin from within, maca peptide that helps keep your skin balanced, and Lock’n pore complex (green tea and sage extracts, and grapeseed oil) to control excess sebum. This cream is light enough to use during the day and still hydrating enough to use in your evening regimen.
The reminders to apply sunscreen will never end because it’s just that important! Add a sunscreen like TROIAREUKE’s ACSEN UV Protector Essence SPF50+ PA+++ to your minimal skin care routine to keep your skin protected from the sun’s UV rays. In addition to sun protection, adding this sunscreen to your routine will also help slow down premature skin aging.
The ACSEN UV Protector Essence is extremely lightweight, making it the ideal sunscreen for oily skin types. You also don’t have to worry about any white cast, stickiness or greasy feeling with this sunscreen as it absorbs right into the skin.
