For the 9999th time, dealing with oily skin is no joke. The excess sebum production can clog your pores and cause acne, your makeup don’t stay put throughout the day and you’re constantly blotting your face to get rid of the excess shine. If you’ve shed a silent tear reading that, we feel you. We know the struggle is real.
The only way to tackle oily skin woes is by following a good skincare routine using products that are specifically formulated for your skin type. It’s essential to use lightweight products that don’t clog the pores. Here are a bunch of lightweight products you can add to your skincare routine.
There are several cleaners available in the market that are formulated for oily skin. But these usually tackle problems associated with oily skin such as acne and breakouts. What you need instead is something that gets rids of the oil and prevents excessive oil production. The Pond’s Oil Control Face Wash is formulated to control excess oil production and give your skin a matte look.
We have said this several times before and we will say it again, oily skin needs moisturiser just as much as any other type. When the skin does not receive external hydration, it produces excess oil to compensate for it. The Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser gives oily skin just the right amount of hydration and is free from harsh chemicals making it suitable for even sensitive skin types.
Most women with oily skin complain that sunscreen makes their skin oilier. Are you one of them? Well, sorry to break it to you, but you’ve been using the wrong type of sunscreen all this while. Pick a lightweight sunscreen like the Lakme Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen; it seeps into your skin quickly and gives a matte finish.
Last but not the least, serums are potent skincare products that tackle specific skin concerns, however, a lightweight version of serums are also available that absorb into the skin quickly. The Dermalogica PowerBright TRx C-12 Pure Bright Serum is perfect for anyone looking for a lightweight formula that combats skin discolouration and uneven skin tone without making your skin look sticky or greasy.
