Best Skincare for Oily Skin: Tips, Products and Routine

Oily skin is a common skin type that is caused by overactive sebaceous glands. These glands produce an excess amount of oil, leaving the skin looking shiny, greasy, and prone to acne breakouts. If you have oily skin, you need to follow a specific skincare routine that can help regulate oil production and prevent breakouts. In this post, we'll take a closer look at some of the best skincare tips, products, and routines for oily skin.

Skincare Tips for Oily Skin

Cleanse Twice a Day

Cleansing your face twice a day is crucial for oily skin types. Use a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser that can remove excess oil, dirt, and impurities without stripping away your skin's natural oils. Avoid using hot water, which can stimulate oil production, and opt for lukewarm water instead.

Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliating your skin can help unclog pores and remove dead skin cells, which can contribute to acne breakouts. Use a gentle exfoliator that contains salicylic acid or glycolic acid, which can help regulate oil production and reduce inflammation.

Use Oil-Free Products

When choosing skincare products, look for oil-free, non-comedogenic formulas that won't clog your pores. Avoid heavy creams and thick lotions that can feel greasy and heavy on your skin.

Moisturize Daily

Moisturizing is important for all skin types, even oily skin. Look for a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that can help hydrate your skin without adding excess oil. Moisturizing can also help regulate oil production, so don't skip this step in your skincare routine.

Wear Sunscreen

Sun damage can worsen oily skin and cause hyperpigmentation. To protect your skin from harmful UV rays, use a non-greasy, broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Look for lightweight formulas that won't leave a white cast or feel heavy on your skin.

Best Skincare Products for Oily Skin

Love Nature Oily skin set 

This set does not contain a cleanser which means you can always get one of your choices. Either way. I would still recommend the Love Nature energizing cleanser from the Radiance set or Optimals creamy cleanser from the Optimals set.

It's also another simple time-saving routine. As usual start with a good cleanse. You can double-cleanse if necessary. Next, you apply the Love Nature Purifying toner which helps you tone and tighten the pores.  

Follow this up with the mattifying lotion for oily skin or purifying face oil. The lotion provides lightweight hydration while the face oil purifies skin and removes blemishes.

Love Nature Radiance set

The cleanser, toner, and face gels all contain organic apricot extract and organic orange extracts. The apricot extract is brimming with fruit sugars and fruit acids which helps you achieve hydrated smooth skin by working to maintain healthy skin moisture levels. At the same time, it promotes cellular renewal

While organic orange juice extract is known to be rich in vitamin C, one of the most potent sources to help boost skin radiance. It also provides fantastic anti-oxidant benefits.

This newly launched set is an absolute treasure. It gives you a simple but equally effective routine leaving the skin radiant. The set is formulated for all skin types but it works perfectly well for acne-prone skin or oily t-zones. 

The first time I used the cleanser, it brought out most of my whiteheads. I ended up using my charcoal mask from Oriflame to peel the rest away.  An absolute winner, this set.

Pure skin set 

Peel away impurities with the pure skin range. The set comprises six components
  • 5-minute oil control clay mask
  • Pore clearing peel off mask
  • Smoothing face scrub
  • Clarifying toning solution
  • Mattifying and cooling face lotion
  • SOS blemish gel 
The Pure Skin range contains ingredients like Salicylic Acid and Gluconolactone. The former purifies skin and unclogs pores while the latter clears the skin surface of dead cells, fades blemish and reduce existing ones. This is one of the most ideal sets you could get for your oily skin.

Finally, last but not least; this skincare though not particularly formulated for oily skin, it's basically for all skin types but works just as well and does the job perfectly.
