A Guide to the Best Skin Care Routine for Oily Skin

Many people experience oily skin due to genetics, hormones, or stress levels, which increase the production of sebum by the body. As a result, your face feels and looks shiny, and skin is rigid to the touch.

The best course of action to tame oily skin is to implement a consistent skincare routine in the morning and night. However, it’s vital to understand how certain products, especially those with oil-based ingredients, can impact your sebum production. That’s why it is critical to always inspect skincare labels to ensure you’re not adding more oil to your skin than needed.

If you are looking for a go-to skincare routine for oily skin, we’ve got you covered. Here are our top tips to keep your sebum production levels in check.

Wash in the Morning and Night

One of the best skincare routines for oily skin is washing the face in the morning and night with warm water and gentle soap. It’s essential to choose a facial cleanser that is free from fragrances, oil-based moisturizers, and harsh chemicals that can cause the skin to create more sebum. Also, never use loofahs or rough washcloths as they can stimulate the skin to produce more oily sebum.

Gently Pat Your Face Dry

When you finish washing your face, never rub it with a rough towel. You must always gently pat it dry with a soft towel. This allows your skin to maintain dampness when you apply a toner and moisturizer on top.

Use a Hydrating Toner

Toners that contain alcohol should never be used on oily skin. Instead, toners containing natural astringent and anti-inflammatory properties can help calm down the overproduction of sebum. Natural astringent toners are excellent at soothing irritation, decreasing the size of enlarged pores, and removing excess oil, dry skin, and dirt from the skin’s surface before it can clog pores.

Apply an Oil-Free Moisturizer

Have you ever found yourself avoiding moisturizers when your skin is super oily? Too often, we find ourselves struggling to decide if moisturizing is the right move for oily skin. Although it may sound contradictory, applying an oil-free moisturizer does benefit your skin. Oily skin is often due to a lack of hydration, which causes a reaction to produce more oils. The best way to ensure your skin is balanced is to use lighter and gentler moisturizers that are made with essential oils from avocados, coconuts, grape seeds, jojobas, or tea trees.
