How to Tackle Oily Skin

Need to find help for your oily skin? If your skin always looks shiny and feels oily to the touch, it’s important to develop a skin care routine that can help it appear matte. With excess oil on your skin, you may find you have a hard time applying makeup or maintaining a fresh look throughout the day. Here’s what you need to do to keep your oily skin in check.


1. Cleanse

Cleansing your skin is absolutely essential when you have oily skin. Washing the excess oil and sebum off your skin helps it appear matte and also avoids pores getting clogged. Look for a product that deeply cleanses and refreshes your skin. Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel is perfect to keep your skin looking radiant but not shiny. It has an invigorating formula with charcoal extracts. The formula helps to purify and clarify your skin. If you use this product daily your skin and pores look more refined, which is a common issue in oily skin.


2. Exfoliate

Exfoliation is a great way to remove excess oil and dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. Exfoliating with the right products can help keep your skin regulated. Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub helps to clarify your skin and diminishes the appearance of pores. Use this scrub in the morning and evening to refresh your skin and to ensure pores stay clean.


3. Don't Touch Your Face

It can be tempting to touch your face throughout the day, if you have oily skin, keep your hands off your complexion. Touching your skin can introduce oil from your hands onto your face, which can make your complexion look shinier. Try to only touch your skin when you are cleansing or moisturizing and make sure your hands are clean.


4. Use A Mattifying Moisturizer

There are many moisturizers out there that are specially formulated for oily skin. Typically they are oil-free, non-comedogenic and light in terms of consistency. In the morning, use a moisturizer formulated with SPF and designed for oily — your skin needs protection from the sun. In the evening look for a mattifying product that can improve how your skin looks and feels. Look for products formulated with Vitamin C, wild berry or retinol to help improve skin’s look. With the right moisturizer you can help your skin appear less shiny.
