Skincare Routine for Oily Skin
Oily skin is one of the most common skin concerns as it presents some unique challenges like breakouts, shiny complexion and more. Oily face occurs when your skin produces an extra amount of sebum. Sebum is meant to hydrate and protect your skin, but when your body produces excess sebum, the oil gets mixed with dead skin cells and causes breakouts, acne and other skin problems. These skin problems can steal away your skin’s natural glow. What a nightmare! Don’t fret, we’re here to help you. Following a specific skincare routine can help balance your skin’s natural oils, keeping your skin healthy and hydrated, but not shiny. Shower your skin with the love and care it needs by following this simple skincare routine for oily skin.
Step 1 - Cleanse well
Whether your skin is oily or dry, cleaning is one of the most crucial steps of any skincare routine. Cleansing helps to remove all makeup, excess oils and dead skin to prevent buildup in the pores. You can try the Garnier Micellar Water that works like a magnet to lift dust and dirt from your skin. This Micellar Water is made without the use of parabens, alcohol or fragrance. To further clean, refresh and revive your skin, opt for the Garnier Face Wash that replenishes the skin’s natural moisture barrier without making it over-dry. This face wash is enriched with the brightening properties of Yuzu Lemon and gives your skin an instant boost of freshness and radiance.
Step 2 - Exfoliate effectively
Scrubbing dives deep into the pores and removes excess oil, dirt and impurities from the skin. This helps to get rid of dead skin cells and bacteria from the surface of the skin. Exfoliating also allows oxygen to travel through the skin. However, it is necessary to be mindful and not over-exfoliate as it can cause dryness, irritation, and redness. If you have oily skin, you can exfoliate two to three times a week.
Step 3 - Use a vitamin C serum
Using a vitamin C serum is one of the best oily skin products as it contains active ingredients that penetrate deep into your skin, repair and rejuvenate your skin by removing excess oil and dust. Opt for the Garnier Vitamin C Serum that helps you get a bright, spotless complexion and contains a spot reduction formula. The vitamin C serum for the face is antioxidant-rich and reduces dark spots and acne marks in just 3 days.
Step 4 - Apply moisturiser
Moisturising your skin, whether oily or dry, is often overlooked by most. Yes, you should moisturise oily skin too. Though it sounds contradictory, the truth is that with all the oil-reducing products added to your oily face, your skin is bound to dry out. Over dry skin in turn would prompt the glands to produce more oil. To keep things in balance and control your skin’s pH level, oily skin needs a moisturiser. Apply the Garnier Moisturising Serum-in-Lotion that is made with a lightweight formula and hydrates your skin without any stickiness.
Step 5 - Don’t skip SPF
Many are unaware of the fact that oily skin is more resilient to sun damage than other skin types due to the added layers of natural oil. Yes, that’s true, prolonged sun exposure can trigger your oil glands to produce more sebum and lead to an increase in acne, breakouts and more. Even when you are in a rush and don’t have time for an elaborate skincare routine, you need to use an SPF to protect your skin’s health and radiance. Go for the Garnier Serum Cream with SPF 40 that gets absorbed into the skin quickly and provides UV protection and skin brightening all at once. This serum cream is made with a lightweight formula and is perfect when you don’t feel like adding a layer of sunscreen to your skin.
