When it comes to taking care of oily skin, most girls only focus on controlling the excess oil. In their search for products that control oil, they often end up using harsh formulas that ruin the skin’s pH balance. And once the skin’s moisture levels are compromised, your skin can end up producing excess oil to combat the dryness.

Hence, instead of picking products formulated with harsh chemicals, you need to pick ones that can combat the oiliness without drying out the skin. One ingredient that absorbs excess oil without leaving the skin dry is charcoal. Over the last few years, charcoal has gained a lot of popularity; especially among girls with oily skin. If you’re dealing with oily skin woes, here are a few charcoal-infused products you need to get your hands on right away.

 

Micellar water

Micellar water is an absolute essential if you wear makeup or live in a city. Pollution levels are high in cities and oily skin attracts dirt, dust and other impurities quite easily, leading to acne and breakouts. Using a charcoal infused micellar water like the Ponds Vitamin Micellar Water D - Toxx Charcoal ensures all the dirt, grease and makeup is lifted away easily, leaving you with squeaky clean skin. It is particularly beneficial for on-the-go cleansing.

Want to find out if your current face wash is effective at controlling excess oil? Simply keep a tab on how your skin feels post cleansing. If it starts looking oily 20-30 minutes after washing, it's time to replace your current face wash with the Ponds Pure White Anti-Pollution Plus Purity with Activated Charcoal Face Wash. Formulated using charcoal, this face wash keeps excessive oil off your face, removes deep set impurities with ease and allows better absorption of skincare products.

Face masks work wonders for the skin, but you need to pick a suitable one that tackles your skin woes for best results. For oily skin, opt for a clay or charcoal based mask; this will detoxify and brighten your dull and oily skin. The Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque offers physical and chemical exfoliation, thereby, keeping several skin concerns like acne, premature ageing and other problems at bay.
