3 Skincare tips for oily skin
Oily skin can be boon in the winters, but bane in the summers. As the sticky feeling on the skin makes us feel more hot and humid than it already is. In this blog, you’ll find 3 skincare tips for oily skin that will make your skin feel healthy.
First, let’s understand the concept of oily skin. The sebaceous glands in the skin are over-active, producing excess sebum. Which contributes to a shiny, greasy-looking face and also a few skin concerns. With oily skin comes acne, blackheads and whiteheads, enlarged or clogged pores etc. in some cases. Pollution and dirt on top make things worse by provoking various kinds of acne.
You must be thinking what a curse it is to have oily skin! Well, that’s not true. Here is something positive about this skin type. Oily skin is less prone to wrinkles and other signs of ageing. This is because the oil tends to lock the moisture into the outermost layer of the skin i.e., the epidermis.
That’s enough for understanding the skin type, let’s see how we can tackle the issues that come with it. The most important thing is to have a simple, easy-to-follow everyday skincare routine.

3 skincare tips for oily skin type
Diving into some of the tips that you can incorporate into your daily skincare routine for healthy skin.
CTM is the boss
CTM is cleansing, toning, and moisturising. It is an essential part of your routine for healthy skin for every skin type. But it’s important to use lightweight, gel-like products for your skin. So for cleansing, use a mild water-based or gel-based cleanser. And don’t wash your face more than twice a day! I know it seems like washing your face is the solution to get rid of the oil, but it only makes it worse. By over-washing, you are asking your skin to produce more oil, so drop that. Then, use a gentle toner to strip off any impurities from your pores.
It’s 2021 and we all know the importance of moisturizing! Do not think that because you have oily skin, you don’t need to moisturize. A moisturizer will nourish and hydrate your skin, but use a lightweight moisturizer that isn’t oil-based.
Pro tip- Apply moisturizer on damp skin to soak in the hydration even better!
Wear a sunscreen suitable for oily skin
If you’re thinking about the sticky feeling you get every time you wear sunscreen, I got you! You’re probably wearing the wrong sunscreen if there’s a white cast and prolonged stickiness involved. For your skin type need to wear a lightweight and gel-based form of SPF.
Wondering if it’s really important to wear sunscreen or not? Here’s your answer: Yes, it is really important to wear SPF 30+ every day. Found out why here.
So, spend some time trying to find the right SPF for yourself. Read the ingredients in the back carefully before making a purchase. Always opt for gel or water-based products because they will not suffocate your pores and will keep acne at bay.
Wash your makeup tools
This is something many people fail to do and then fail to understand why their skin is acting up. Washing your makeup tools such as brushes and sponges is as important as cleaning your face before sleeping. Because when you do makeup using those tools, the accumulated dirt is blended with your makeup. It is always good to use clean brushes for makeup or anything related to the skin.
Pro tip- Don’t waste money on makeup tool cleansers, you can use a soap bar to clean your makeup tools.
