skin care routine for oily skin
Oily skins require extra care and are prone to breakouts. They make our face oily and greasy. This makes us look dull and spoils our makeup. There are several myths about oily skins claiming that there is no need for moisturizers is baseless. The sebaceous gland present in our skin secretes oil when lead to breakouts and acnes. Acnes are women’s worst enemies. They make them less confident and uncomfortable in their own skin. But proper care and right products can prevent the stubborn acnes and bumps from spoiling your morning. So, let’s talk about a lazy girl’s skincare routine that can be completed in 3 easy steps. This three step skin care routine can make your skin oil free, acne free and make you look gorgeous. The regime is budget friendly and easy available in the market. I will recommend some of the products that will suit your skin.
• Wash your face with an oil free cleanser
Cleansers are used to remove dirt and dead skin cells from our face that gets accumulated in our skin. But in oily skin, the oil secreted by the sebaceous glands traps more dirt than regular, normal skin. The dirt and the dead skin cells get trapped into your pores and clog them. An oil free cleanser must be used to unclog the pores and remove the dirt from your skin. Even though you are advised to use oil free cleanser, make sure you use a product that does not dry up your skin. Some of the cleansers that I recommend are: good vibes oil free cleanser, Neutrogena oil free face wash and clean and clear face wash and Ever Youth face wash.
• Scrub your face twice a week
Scrubbing removes dead skin cells and unclogs clogged pores. Clogged pores causes acne black heads and bumps. It can remove dead skin cells and prevent skin diseases. But, scrub should be used gently on your skin. You can use chemical exfoliations to scrub your skin too. But I prefer physical scrubs. Avoid products that have added fragrance. Because fragrance can irritate your skin.
• Moisturize your skin
There are myths that states, that oily skin does not need a moisturizer and it’s a blatant lie. Your skin needs a moisturizer irrespective of your skin type. But does your moisturizer makes your skin more oily? That’s because you are using the wrong product. People with oily skin must switch to gel based moisturizers. Gel based moisturizers does not make your skin oily. Some of the best affordable gel based moisturizers are: ponds light gel moisturizer, Aloe Vera gel and many more.
• Apply your sunscreen
Many people are skeptical about sunscreen. They complain that sunscreen tends to make their skin oilier and leads to breakout. Try using gel based sunscreen that is manufactured for oily skin. Sunscreen is a must. Some of the best affordable gel based sunscreens are: Re’equil sunscreen, Neutrogena ultra sheer sun block etc. They are super affordable and non greasy.
