The Best 4-Step Skincare Regime For An Oily Skin
Skin comes in several different types, whether it be dry, combination, oily, normal, or sensitive. Since skin types can differ greatly, each requires a certain skincare regime. If you have oily skin, your skincare routine will differ to that of somebody with another skin type, such as dry skin.
Join along as we share our simple 4-step skincare regime for people with oily skin. Remember to customise your skincare routine for optimal results. Shop the full range of SumaNurica biotechnology products today.
What Is Oily Skin?
Oily skin is common, and even more so among younger people. It occurs when the sebaceous glands in your pores produce an excess amount of sebum, which can lead to an oily appearance.
Typically, people with oily skin find that their skin can look shiny and may also experience breakouts. If you have either or both of these, your skin type may be oily. Oily skin can be caused by a number of factors, including:
- Pore size
- Your current skincare routine
The good news is that your skincare regime can play a role in reducing the amount of oil in your skin, allowing your skin to look and feel its best.
Step 1: Cleanse Morning And Night
Cleansing is key when it comes to keeping oily skin under control. Doing so with a cleanser designed for oily skin morning and night will help to minimise an oily appearance.
Morning cleansing is vital as it removes shedded skin cells and oils that build up while you sleep, while cleansing at night removes dirt that accumulated in your pores throughout the day.
Step 2: Exfoliate With A Toner
People with oily skin should exfoliate with a toner once or twice a week. This removes oils, dead skin cells, and debris that clog your pores and may contribute to breakouts. However, ensure you don’t overdo it, as over-exfoliating may irritate your skin.
Step 3: Treat Your Skin Concerns
It’s time to treat your unique skin concerns such as acne, fine lines, or dullness. Everybody has their own individual skin concerns, so you’ll need to identify yours in order to address them.
Certain ingredients may work best for some skin concerns while not doing much for others. This is where your choice of active ingredients and the quality of products make a significant difference. For anti-ageing and age-prevention, try the Collagen Essence Hydrating Face Mask.
Step 4: Hydrate And Moisturise
You may think that moisturising is counterproductive for oily skin, but the truth is that even oily skin needs a healthy dose of moisturiser. In fact, oily skin is often dehydrated!
A water-based, oil-free moisturiser is typically best for people with oily skin. These can moisturise the skin without clogging the pores, brightening dull or dehydrated skin. For a boost of hydration, add the Collagen Essence Hydrating Face Mask to your skincare regime.
Oily Skin Mistakes To Avoid
Skipping the sunscreen
SPF sunscreen is essential for every skin type, as it helps to prevent cosmetic issues like fine lines and wrinkles in addition to larger concerns such as skin cancer. For oily skin, choose a sunscreen without ingredients that may clog pores, such as avobenzones and oxyphenones.
Choosing products without the right active ingredients
The right active ingredients in a skincare product can make a noticeable difference to your skin. Great ingredients for oily skin include salicylic acid, retinol, and niacinamide.
Not using a tailored regime for oily skin
Using products that are best for a different skin type may strip your skin of its natural oils, causing your oily skin to produce even more. Ensure your regime is tailored for oily skin, as this will address your skin’s specific concerns.
Forgetting to frequently change towels and pillowcases
The simplest things can often be easily overlooked. Skin cells and oil can gather on linen such as pillowcases and towels, and not replacing them frequently can allow oils to build up further. Changing them frequently will minimise the amount of time your skin spends in contact with oils that will hinder your skincare regime.
