What’s the best skincare routine for oily and skin?

What is oily skin?

People with oily skin types typically produce more sebum than usual. This imbalance is usually triggered by hormonal changes or external factors such as stress or pollution. Unlike dry skin, oily skin's sebaceous glands create more lipids than it needs, and excess sebum creates shine, particularly in the T-zone. Dilated pores and blackheads, as well as blemishes, can also appear on oily skin.

Treat oily skin with a targeted beauty routine

Oily skin needs a targeted beauty routine, just like normal and dry skin. Start with a gentle cleanser to wash away excess sebum and impurities. A targeted cleanser such as the Gentle Foaming Cleanser for Normal to Combination Skin is ideal, which is as effective as a soap and as mild as a cream, leaving skin radiant and nourished after wash.

Once or twice a week, scrubbing away dead skin cells helps to remove build-up that would clog pores and ultimately lead to acne and blemishes. Use a gentle face scrub with natural exfoliating beads, such as the Pure Scrub. With lava beads, this exfoliating face scrub gently smoothes away rough skin and unclogs pores, leaving you with a fresh complexion.

Oily skin needs moisturising just as much as dry skin. Choose a lighter, more fluid toning lotion oily skin. One of them is the Toning Lotion with Iris. Apply this refreshing lotion after using the serum. Infused with Iris and Sage Extract, it helps tighten pores, soothe and moisturise skin throughout the day. It also controls the shine on the T-zone, leaving the skin shine-free with a matte complexion.

Treat your skin to the SOS Pure Mask once or twice a week. This rebalancing clay mask deeply cleanses the skin, removes impurities and tightens pores in just 10 minutes. Once rinsed off with warm water, the SOS Pure Mask's purifying clays leave skin clean, refreshed and soft, with sebum secretion reduced thanks to the organic Alpine Willow Herb extract. After use, your skin glows radiantly with zero shine.

Tip: Touch-up on the go

During the day, control shines on oily skin with the My Clarins PORE-LESS Blur and Matte Stick. This pore-eraser mattifies shine and blots out excess sebum throughout the day. Just swipe over trouble areas and your skin will look matte, poreless and shine-free! It is the perfect secret weapon, especially for young adults with oily skin. Slip it into your handbag for touch-ups on the go.
