The Skincare Routine for Oily & Acne Prone Skin

Create More Sebum

The Basics

It’s natural to follow a morning skin care routine in this era of information, influencers, famous dermatologists, and techniques, tools and products being launched in the market everyday. With skincare routines that we should follow every morning (and night), we’ve really got to figure out what skin we are catering to.

Having oily skin and being satisfied with our early morning routine can be a challenge. Managing oily skin requires a consistent skincare routine that focuses on balancing sebum production and maintaining a healthy complexion. Start by cleansing your face twice a day with a gel-based or foam cleanser to remove excess oil and impurities. Incorporate a toner containing ingredients like salicylic acid or witch hazel to help control oil and minimize pores. Apply a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated without adding extra shine. Use a clay mask once or twice a week to absorb excess oil and unclog pores. Apply an oil-free sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

How Do I Know if I Have Oily Skin?

If you’ve been wondering what your skin type is, here’s a quick checklist: dry skin produces too little oil, normal skin has a good balance of oil, while oily skin produces an oversupply of natural oils. No wonder dirt and bacteria can get trapped in the skin, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples, which are among the most common characteristics of oily skin!

The signs and symptoms of oily skin are very simple to identify. You will see a shine (not to be confused with a glow) on your skin that is very oily to the touch. You’ll tend to notice open or clogged pores, concentrated in the oilier areas of the face. There will be those dreaded whiteheads and blackheads popping out from time to time. And then of course there are the regular breakouts – a huge symptom of oily skin. On a serious note, some women also have a tendency to get pimples on the chest and back. Dull-looking skin especially during that time of the month is quite usual.

Step-By-Step Routine for Oily Skin

We have scouted for a lot of information and our endeavour is to simplify this process to the T (zone)!

Step 1: Cleanser – Get yourself a gentle cleaner. Possibly, one from your dermatologist or at least a dermatologist recommended one off the shelf. We would recommend that you try out a cleanser that’s formulated with ingredients like salicylic acid or tea tree oil, which help to control oil production and unclog pores.

Step 2: Toner – For oily skin, this is an important step. The idea is to gently remove any residue post the cleanser. It’s a subtle message to your skin that it’s time to balance the pH levels. Since the skin is an intelligent organ, it will understand the command of a good toner and will start the process of refining the appearance of your pores. We suggest the use of alcohol-free toners with ingredients like witch hazel or niacinamide.

Step 3: Moisturiser – Counterintuitive, but integral. Women with oily skin shouldn’t skip a moisturiser. The key is to go with a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that won’t clog your pores. Your skin essentially requires adequate hydration. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid or gel-based formulas to keep your skin moisturized without adding extra shine. Dubai is famous for world-class dermatology and treatments, so getting a lab-tested doctor-recommended hyaluronic acid formula is pretty easy in the region.  

Step 4: SPF – Did you know that you need more SPF if you travel by air frequently?! Well, it’s true. Oily skin needs to be protected from harmful UV rays and this can be done simply by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 or 50. Choose oil-free or mattifying formulas to avoid adding excess shine to your skin. Remember to reapply throughout the day if needed. And don’t forget to put it in your carry-on for those flights!

Lessen Your Stress

Keep in mind that oily skin requires just as much care as any other skin type. While you have to find a variety of products and develop your own morning and evening skincare routine, it’s important to remember what to avoid.

Heavy and greasy products, over-cleansing, harsh cleansers that dry out your skin, and excessive exfoliation at the salon while getting your nails done is a bad idea. The worst thing you can do is touch your face constantly. That’s a BIG no-no! Lastly, don’t forget to incorporate a good diet, lessen your stress, hydrate your skin and sleep well!
