Does oily skin make you feel uncomfortable? The extra oil that your skin produces can also lead to breakouts or acne. But don't worry, try our 5 tips below can help you put your skin under control effectively.
1. USING CLEANSER EVERYDAY
Twice a day, use a mild, water-soluble facial cleanser for your oily skin. Rinse all the cleanser off your face completely. The cleanser should not contain any irritating ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulphate and it should be fragrance-free.
A low-pH facial cleansers is a good choice that'll leave your skin soft, refreshed and maintain your skin's pH balance effectively.
2. USING A TONER

Exfoliating is the best way to remove dead skin cells. You must exfoliate and scrub your face at least two to three times a week to prevent any oil build-up.
4. USING DAY CREAM WITH SPF
You’d be surprised by how many people with oily skin skip moisturizing. Actually, even with oily skin, a product with sun protection is vital for preventing wrinkles and for reducing the risk of inflammation. Choose a light protection for oily skin; you could also use a liquid foundation, combined with a face powder for a matt finish.
Dehydrated skin will only lead to issues such as inflammation, breakouts and a breakdown of collagen which could lead to premature aging.
5. USING HYDRATING NIGHT CREAM
Some creams are too thick and can make your skin greasy, leading to breakouts. So for the evening, choose a light, hydrating gel or serum that does not contain ingredients that will block the pores and with antioxidants and ingredients that strengthen the skin’s protective barrier.
Products, which are contain ingredients such as menthol, mint, eucalyptus, lemon, alcohol or aromatic oils...should be avoided cause they can make your skin irritate and produce more sebum.
Besides, instead of creams, your oily skin should be nourished by light liquids, serums and gels to avoid blocking the pores and looking greasy.
