How to Care for Oily Skin
Updated: May 26, 2019
➢ Cleanse your face twice a day using a gentle, water-soluble cleanser. Avoid cleansers containing fragrance or drying ingredients. They can irritate your skin.
➢ Review product labels. Look for skin care products that are labeled oil free, pH balanced and noncomedogenic.
➢ Toners can assist persons with oily skin. If properly formulated, they can rebalance skin’s natural pH, minimize the "appearance" of enlarged pores, rid face of pore-clogging impurities and remove the last traces of makeup.
➢ Keep skin moisturized and hydrated by using lightweight serums/gels or fluid lotions.
➢ Always protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Look for an oil-free sunscreen containing zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
➢ Use water-based makeup and always cleanse face before going to sleep.
➢ Use oil absorbing blotting papers throughout the day. Blotting papers are great to minimize oily appearance and shine.
