Dealing with oily skin is a struggle that’s far too real. Your face is permanently shiny (not the good kind), your makeup is constantly sliding off and breakouts are your constant companions *ugh*. That’s where using the right products to keep your overactive sebaceous glands in check comes in. Including the right products can do a world of good your skin. Ahead, we’ve rounded up five products that you need to get your hands on to live that shine-free life.

 

01. Ponds Oil Control Face Wash

01. Ponds Oil Control Face Wash

An oil control face wash like the Ponds Oil Control Face Wash should be right up your alley. Enriched with silica gel, this cleanser will effectively rid your skin of excess oil and dirt, fight dullness and give your skin that beautiful without stripping it of its essential moisture.

 

02. Ponds Super Light Gel Oil-Free Moisturiser

02. Ponds Super Light Gel Oil-Free Moisturiser

Skipping moisturiser is a common mistake that most girls with oily skin make. If you strip your skin of oil and deprive it of moisture, it will make up for the loss by producing more oil — something you really don’t want. Instead of picking a thick, creamy formula, opt for a lightweight moisturiser like the Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil-Free Moisturiser that is specifically meant for oily skin. Enriched with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E, it will leave your skin looking plump and healthy.

 

03. Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF 30

03. Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF 30

Irrespective of your skin type, climate or whether you are going to be indoors or outdoors, sunscreen is an absolute must. But using the wrong sunscreen can clog your pores and cause breakouts. Therefore, opt for an oil-free formula like the Dermalogica Oil Free Matte SPF 30. It will help absorb excess oil from your skin while keeping you protected from the harmful rays of the sun.

 

04. St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask

04. St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask

An exfoliator is a highly understated product when it comes to caring for oily, acne-prone skin. Use a gentle scrub like the St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask to buff away all the gunk and grime that’s clogging your pores. Enriched with the soothing properties of oatmeal, this scrub helps to slough away dead skin cells and keep your skin healthy and glowing.
