Oily skin is never fun, we understand that all too well, especially as those who love hydrated glowing skin. There is always a fine line between looking oily and glowing, which makes it even more so important that we use the correct products for our oily skin, ensuring that we maintain that balance between the two. So let us tell you what our top 4 best products for oily skin are and how you can use them to create the perfect skincare routine for oily skin types.
The Best Products For Oily Skin
When it comes to building a skincare routine for oily skin, there truly is more to it than just removing excess oil. In fact, you actually should be limiting the amount of oil you attempt to remove from your skin as a drastic reduction in oil can cause your skin to produce even more as it tries to make-up for lost oil. As we make our way through adulthood and into our early adolescence, we are always pushed by drugstore brands to use products like astringents, oil removing foam cleansers and mattifying powders, but the reality is that you really should only be using one of those above items instead of all 3 or more.
Successful oil control comes down to creating the perfect pH balance and hydration level in the skin. Oily skin types generally have a pH level of 3-4 with even lower being acne prone and oily. Making it important that you use skincare that balances out the skins pH level with calming, cooling and hydrating properties to restore the skin. Let us share with your the top 4 best products for oily skin that will do just that!
#1. Natural Charcoal Soap
Charcoal is one of the best ingredients those with oil skin should be using daily. Charcoal helps to pull excess oil, dirt and toxins from deep within the pores without disrupting the natural oils and nutrient your skin naturally needs to stay healthy. Using a natural charcoal based soap to cleanse the face both morning and night is the perfect way to prep your skin and ensure your skin is fully cleansed without being harsh. But do remember not to go overboard by using only charcoal products as too much of a good thing can in turn become bad. Sticking to a charcoal soap will ensure optimal oil control throughout the day.
Try: [KLAIRS] Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap(a natural charcoal based soap for the face that will remove excess oil and toxins without being harsh on the skin.)
#2 Cooling Serum
When it comes to oil control, you might be surprised to find out that keeping the temperature of the skin cool is the best way to do so! If the skins temperature is higher that the rest of your body, the pores naturally become dilated and begin to produce an excess in oil. This leads to enlarged looking pores, oily skin and even advanced skin aging. Reducing the temperature of the skin will drastically reduce pore size and excessive oil production. The best way to do so is to use hydrating skincare that also has calming and cooling effects. The added boost in hydration will naturally encourage temperature reduction while key ingredients will provide instant and long term cooling effects throughout the day. Ensuring your skin looks healthy, glowing and most of all, not oily!
Try: [KLAIRS] Rich Moist Soothing Serum(a lightweight hydrating serum that calms and cools the skin, keeping the skins pH level and healthy all day long.)
#3 Moisture is Still Important
For those of use adults with oily skin, it’s still important that we maintain the skin's moisture levels even though our skin type is oily. Even with this skin type, it’s important to promote healthy skin aging by treating the skin with the proper care it deserves and needs. Which can seem confusing as we automatically would think that all anti-aging products are thick and heavy creams, but that can’t be farther from the truth! Keeping control over oily skin while still benefiting from anti-aging products is 100% possible with the right products! We recommend using a gel-type cream that focuses on providing deep hydration with light-weight moisture and cooling effects that contains powerful antioxidants. Not only will you control oil production thanks to powerful skin cooling effects and hydration, but you will also be treating your skin to the care it needs thanks to ingredients that provide anti-aging to those with oily and acne prone skin types.
Try: [I'M FROM] Vitamin Tree Water Gel(a powerful antioxidant rich water gel that provides the skin with deep hydration, moisture and skin cooling effects to promote balanced and healthy looking skin.)
In common knowledge for oily skin treatments, we often think of clay masks for that purpose. Clay masks are great at quickly removing excess oil, but they certainly are not the best choice for everyone, especially for those with combination oily skin or those with dehydrated oily skin as clay masks can potentially have an adverse effect in the long run. The best way to treat oily skin without drying out your face is to try treatment masks that drastically cool down the skins temperature. As we discussed previously, skin that is too hot in temperature can cause dilated pores and excessive oil production, as such, cooling down the skin is the best answer to oil control without drying out the skin. For this we highly recommend a cooling, hydrating and oil controlling sheet mask.
Try: [KLAIRS] Midnight Blue Calming Sheet Mask(made with bamboo charcoal for oil control, tea tree for cooling and rich hydrating ingredients, this sheet mask will keep your skin feel fresh all day long.)
The bottom line? Build your skincare routine based off of skin cooling gel and water based products. Making sure to include one product that contains charcoal that is preferably in the form of a cleanser.
