Top 5 tips oily skin needs

Hey everyone!

So since I did a blog for everyone with dry skin. I thought I would do one for my readers that have oily skin too! I personally have dry skin but whilst working in the beauty industry I have seen and learnt a lot about what works best for different skin types!

Here is what everyone with oily skin should know:
  1. Make sure you cleanse! Cleansing your skin twice a day is really important for oily skin as it removes the excess oils in the skin that can clog the pores leading to breakouts. A good cleanser for oily skin is a foaming cleanser. The simple foaming cleanser is really good for both skin types and is affordable. 

  2. Use a toner every day! Using toners are a great way to banish that excess oil in the skin, especially a toner with rose water. You can buy some affordable ones in Superdrug. 

  3. You still need to moisturise! When having oily skin it can be easy to forget this because you focus so much on removing the oils in the skin. Although, it is still important to add moisture to the skin because otherwise your skin will produce more excess oil to compensate for it. It is best to look for oil free moisturisers or water based ones. A really good one is Benefit Cosmetics Triple performing facial emulsion with SPF 15. It also has PA++ which means it protects your skin from UVA and UVB (ageing and burning). Set your foundation in place!

  4. This is an important thing to do if you have oily skin. You can set your foundation in place by using a powder. It is also good to set your concealer too. It is also best to stick to mineral makeup for oily skin. This is so that it can make your skin still look radiant without looking cakey. A good foundation for this is the Bare Minerals Barr pro foundation! 

  5. Exfoliate regular! People that have oily skin are more common to not be able to shed the dead skin cells on their face. So it is important to exfoliate to remove them so that it doesn’t clog pores. (I researched this).
