What are the causes of Oily Skin?

Sebaceous glands dependent on work.

Skin Care Routine For Oily Skin

You see, the skin MUST produce sebum. Seriously. Sebum is the skin’s natural moisturizer. This is what keeps the skin naturally smooth and hydrated and why your skin ages so much better than your dry skin’s best friends.

In moderation, sebum is a good thing. This is when your skin starts producing much more than it needs the problems to start. But why are you cursed for it when many of your friends are not?

You will not like it. They are hormones and genetics.

Basically, it is the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that controls the production of sebum. And listen to this, your levels are genetically determined why you have to endure all this oil and your friends do not.

DHT levels also tend to be highest during puberty and menopause. Therefore, oily skin gets worse in the horrible high schools and after 50 years.

I said you did not like it. But if it can make you feel better, you can blame the men for the blame. DHT is a male hormone. In fact, both men and women have it.


How to take care of oily skin?

Skin Care Routine For Oily Skin

The key to saying “goodbye to oily skin” is to keep sebum production under control WITHOUT drying the skin. How to achieve the seemingly impossible balance:


1. Choose a low pH foam cleaner

Skin Care Routine For Oily Skin

Biggest mistake you make? Cleanse your skin with a strong cleanser in hopes of removing ALL that oil from your face.

Believe me, you really do not want it. The skin needs a little sebum. Take it all off and your skin goes crazy and starts producing more to compensate!

What you need is a mild foaming cleanser that removes most of the EXCESS oil, but still leaves something so your skin is not tempted to overproduce too much oil again. Early.

Best choice:

  • Corsx Cleansing Gel with low pH ($ 11.00): pH 5.5. Available in Sokoglam and YesStyle.
  • Paula’s Choice Moisture Boost Cleanser One-Step Facial Cleanser ($ 18.00): pH 5.5. Available at Paula’s Choice.
  • Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Oil Reducing Cleanser ($ 18.00): pH 5.5. Available from Nordstrom and Paula’s Choice.

2. If you need toner

(Not at all), choose one with anti-aging or anti-acne ingredients.

Everything with antioxidants or niacinamide (a superstar for skin care that moisturizes the skin and treats acne) fits perfectly.

Unfortunately, they are hard to find. 99% of oily skin tones are astringent (you know the crazy tonics that have alcohol in them and nothing else). Like harsh cleansers, they remove all sebum from your skin and make you think you need to produce more (like!).

Best choice:

  • Cosrx Natural BHA Skin returns A-Sol ($ 18.00): Available at iHerb, Look Fantastic, Sokoglam and Yes Style
  • Paula’s Choice Soothing Redness Relief Regular Toner ($ 21.00): Available at Dermstore, Feel Unique and Paula’s Choice
  • Paula’s Choice Pore Balancing Skin Toner ($ 21.00): Available at Look Fantastic and Paula’s Choice

Exfoliate and clean the pores with salicylic acid

What Is Salicylic Acid and Why It's the Best Acid for Your Skin - The Skincare Edit

I do not care what you have heard about the wonders of glycolic acid or the benefits of lactic acid. THERE IS ONLY one way to exfoliate oily skin: salicylic acid.

You see, all these acids exfoliate the surface of the skin. But salicylic acid is the only one that can get into your pores and remove all the dirt that clogs them and causes pimples and blackheads.

I repeat: salicylic acid is the ONLY peel that is able to remove pimples and blackheads. Deceive yourself at your own risk.

Best choice:

  • Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Raspberry Glycolic Night Serum ($ 90.00): Don’t be fooled by the name, IT HAS HYDROCHLIC ACID. Available at Cult Beauty, Sephora and SpaceNK
  • Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid ($ 29.00): Available at Dermstore, Feel Unique, Paula’s Choice and Selfridges
  • The normal 2% salicylic acid solution (£ 4.25) – available from Adore Beauty, Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty

4. Use an oil-free moisturizer

Let’s face it, most moisturizers don’t work for you. They are too heavy and fat and turn your face into a glowing war zone.

Blame it on the oils. Your skin has already had enough and they add another tablespoon. It’s a recipe for disaster.

Go for oil-free moisturizer instead. They contain plasticizers, which are ingredients that behave like oils: they retain moisture in the skin BUT without adding more oil.

Plus, they are rich in moisturizer. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid attract and bind moisture to the skin. Again without adding more oil. Great, isn’t it?

Best choice:

  • Dr. Dennis Gross Skin Care Hydra-Clean Oil-Free Moisture ($ 78.00): Available from Nordstrom and Sephora.
  • Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel ($ 52.00): Available at Cult Beauty, Sephora and SpaceNK.
  • First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Oil-Free Mattifying Gel ($ 30.00): Available at Dermstore, Feel Unique, Sephora and Ulta

5. Use sunscreen

Skin Care Routine For Oily Skin

I know, I know, it’s an extra layer. A super bold on top of that. But you also need to protect your skin from UV rays.

Sunscreen is NOT optional. You are already dealing with glare, rashes and excess oil. Want to add wrinkles, sun spots and maybe even cancer to your list?

Thought of it like that. Choose a light sunscreen and use it daily.

Best choice:

  • EltaMD UV Pure Broad-Spectrum SPF 47 ($ 25.00): Available at Dermstore and Walmart
  • Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection SPF 50 Sunscreen + WetForce for sensitive skin and children ($ 42.00): Available at Nordstrom and Ulta
  • Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 ($ 34.00): Available at Blue Mercury and Dermstore

6. Use clay masks

Should You Be Using a Clay Face Mask?

Covering your face in mud may not look good, but it certainly helps keep all the extra oil under control.

Clays like bentonite and kaolin are highly absorbent and can soak up any excess oil so they do not get stuck in the pores and cause rashes.

Best choice:

  • Elizavecca Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask ($ 11.25): Available at iHerb, Selfridges, Walmart and Yes Style
  • Paula’s Choice Absorbent Oil Balancing Skin Mask ($ 22.00): Available at Paula’s Choice

7. Do not Forget a Mattifying Primer

Oily skin and makeup do not fit so well together, do they? You spend all this time on your makeup and after a few hours everything is gone. Shine reigns supreme again.

To give your makeup a fighting chance, always use a matte primer. It’s an extra layer and an extra step in the morning, but it can really make a big difference.

Best choice:

  • Becca Ever-Matte Powerless Priming Perfector ($ 38.00): Available at Cult Beauty and Sephora
  • Dr Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner ($ 45.00): Available at Beauty Bay and Sephora
  • Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (£ 17.00) – Available at Cult Beauty, Feel Unique and SpaceNK

8. Dry & wipe the gloss away

Once you have oily skin, always be on the lookout for signs of glow starting to appear on your face.

If you notice anyone, no problem. Wipe it with an oil-based blotting paper. It gets the job done without ruining your makeup.

Best choice:
