I’ve been thinking to write this for quite a while now. The only problem was that I knew it was going to be really long so I decided to write two blog posts on oily skin. The first one is all about skin care and some products that I personally like while the second one will be about makeup.
1- Gentle Cleanser
This is the first and the most important part of any skin routine no matter what type of skin you have. For those who have oily skin it is absolutely crucial to use a gentle cleanser on a daily basis. Avoid any harsh cleanser especially the foam cleansers. The best product that I suggest is a cleansing oil. Here are some that I like but you can use any brand that you want.
Just remember to stick with whatever works for you, constantly changing the face wash can worsen your skin situation.
Exfoliating is better for oily skin comparing to scrubbing. Yet I suggest to use a washcloth or a deep cleansing balm once a week. What ever you choose to use make sure not to overdo it since it can dry out the skin.
Moisturizer is your skin’s best friend. Use a water-based oil free moisturizer every day. It will nourish your skin and keep it hydrated without making you look shiny.
4- Pore Minimizer
This will reduce the size of pores and the black heads. There are three types of pore minimizer:
You can use this one as a moisturizer on a daily basis all over your face-remember it works for oily skin, if you have combination skin use it just on the T-zone.
This one must be used before applying the moisturizer just like any other serum. I suggest to use this one if you live in a cold area. Since the cold weather drys out the skin using a moisturizer product is advisable.
This kind has received variety of reviews, some swear on it while there are others who claim it’s not worth to try. I personally have never used one so I can’t recommend anything in this category.
5- Face mask
You can use deferent types of face mask to emphasize the above mentioned effects. Here are some of my favorites for moisturizing(1),cleansing (2)and removing the black headed(3).
Please remember that I’m not a specialist or a dermatologist. These are just my opinion based on my own experience.
