Doing too many things to your skin and loading it up with products can do more harm than good. But thankfully, 2021 is all about minimalism in skincare, and no skin type will benefit more from this trend than oily skin. Most girls with oily skin end up splurging on too many mattifying products and starve their skin of essential moisture and nourishment. Which is why we have put together an effective 5-product regimen to help deal with your oily skin all-year-round…
- 01. Simple Daily Skin Detox Purifying Facial Wash
- 02. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Exfoliant
- 03. Lakme Absolute Pore Fix Toner
- 04. Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil-Free Moisturiser
- 05. Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen SPF 50
01. Simple Daily Skin Detox Purifying Facial Wash
Oily skin types need to strike the right balance in a cleanser, a formula that helps cleanse and detoxify without stripping your skin of too much moisture. The Simple Daily Skin Detox Purifying Facial Wash is infused with the goodness of witch hazel, zinc and thyme. The mix of ingredients helps unclog pores, remove dirt, oil, makeup build-up, and leave your skin feeling visibly fresh and shine-free.
02. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Exfoliant
Over-exfoliating can further irritate your sebaceous glands, making your skin oilier. That’s why it’s best to stick to exfoliating your skin 2-3 times a week with the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Exfoliant. Infused with gentle exfoliators like rice bran extracts, liquorice, grapefruit, papain enzymes and salicylic acid, this powder-based product leaves your skin smoother and brighter. Plus, it sloughs off dead skin cells without being too harsh on your skin, and we love that!
03. Lakme Absolute Pore Fix Toner
Settling the debate once and for all, yes, a toner is an absolute essential for oily skin types. Include the Lakme Absolute Pore Fix Toner in your daily routine to help regulate oil production on your skin, tighten your pores, and put hydration back into the skin post-cleansing. The mist also helps rejuvenate tired skin during and at the end of a long and stressful day. The toner also helps prep your oily skin for makeup application, just dab with a cotton pad misted with it for an instantly smooth, matte and clean surface.
04. Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil-Free Moisturiser
Oily skin types need moisturiser as much as any other skin type. An ideal moisture and hydration level will make sure that your skin is not over-compensating by producing more oil. A lightweight formula like the Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser effectively nourishes oily skin without making it feel sticky or greasy. Formulated with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E, this moisturiser will take care of all your skin hydration needs, no matter the season or occasion.
05. Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen SPF 50
No skincare routine is complete without SPF, especially oily skin types which often skip sunscreen for being too heavy or leaving a white cast on the face. That is why a gel-based formula like the Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 will be perfect for daily use. It is lightweight, non-sticky, ultra-matte and has a high SPF value to keep your skin safe all year round!
