Clarins Malaysia: Skin Care For Oily Skin And Visible Pores

Understanding oily skin and visible pores

Does your skin produce a little extra shine? Are you concerned about the large pores on your face? Oily skin is usually caused by an excess of sebum production, and if left uncared for, can easily become prone to acne, clogged pores, black heads, white heads and uneven skin tone.

If you struggle with this, don’t worry. One of the most effective ways to treat oily skin and open pores is by investing in a quality skin care regime for oily skin and large pores.

How to choose the best skin care products for oily skin

First, you should wash your face at least twice a day with a cleansing milk such as Clarins Cleansing Milk with Gentian. A milk cleanser suits oily skin as it is gentle, soothing and doesn’t dehydrate skin. Formulated with Alpine herbs and Orris Root for gentle and effective cleansing, this cleanser is so much more than a makeup remover as it also eliminates dirt and impurities with spa-like efficiency. It contains a rich blend of purifying plant extracts such as Gentian, Hawthorn and Sage, which help oily complexions feel softer, smoother and well-refreshed. Cleansing your face in the morning and evening is an important step to prevent clogged pores and excess sebum.

After cleansing your face with lukewarm water, apply a toner for oily skin such as Toning Lotion with Iris for Combination and Oily Skin. Specially designed for oily and combination skin, this product combats wrinkles, fine lines, dehydration and skin slackening through its innovative formula of Iris and Sage extracts. This alcohol-free toner also minimises large pores and soothes skin without a stinging sensation. Customers love it because not only does it purify and moisturise skin, it also refines skin texture and reduces surface oils by evoking a natural matte finish.

Your skin care routine would not be complete without a pore minimising serum. The Pore Minimising Serum is an amazing serum for oily skin because its lightweight, watery texture absorbs quickly without leaving behind a greasy residue. It also tightens, purifies and shrinks enlarged pores to help promote a fresh, flawless complexion. Don’t forget to top it off with a suitable moisturiser for oily or acne-prone skin, preferably a lightweight moisturiser that doesn’t block the pores or irritate the skin. You can also invest in a mattifying pore-minimising primer before applying your foundation, as it helps diminish the appearance of visible pores.

Facial treatment oil that works for oily skin

Sometimes, dehydrated skin can result in excess sebum production to make up for the lack of moisture, which leads to oily skin and large pores. Therefore, it’s important to keep your skin well-hydrated. Using the right facial treatment oil will work wonders for your skin. One of the highly-recommended facial treatment oil for oily skin is the Lotus Face Treatment Oil because this gentle face treatment oil effectively moisturises and soothes skin to lock in moisture while preventing fine lines and dehydration. As a result, your skin will feel satiny soft and supple over time.

We’d recommend applying this treatment oil by mixing 2 to 3 drops in your toning lotion. With your hands, warm the mixture and apply onto clean face and neck with gentle motions, avoiding the contours of your eyes. To remove excess oil, just dab a clean layer of tissue over your skin.
