Oils on the skin make for a nice, natural glow, but when they start to make our faces a little too shiny, then it’s time to switch up or add to the daily routine. From cleansing tips to oil absorbing sheets and DIY techniques, there are so many ways you can manage your oily skin for a most refreshed look.
7 Ways to Manage Oily Skin and Avoid Looking Shiny
Let’s break down our top tips:
- Wash your face 2x a day with an oil-free cleanser.
The buildup of oils on our skin can often come down to simply how consistent we are with our skincare routines, so be sure to gently cleanse your pores daily. Oil-free cleansers will specifically prevent the buildup of oils in your pores, so be sure to choose the right cleanser too.
- Don’t wake up in makeup.
No matter what, don’t forget to wash off your makeup every night. Makeup is the biggest culprit to clogged pores, so if you fail to wash your face one night, then your skin may be unforgiving the next day.
- It might be time for new cosmetics.
That’s right, the foundation you’ve been using for the last who-knows-how-many years might actually be doing you more harm than good. Treat yourself to a new formula that actually works for your skin. Oil-free, water-based, and powdered cosmetics work best for managing oiliness.
- Never skip moisturizer.
Even if you think your own oils are enough moisture, a light, oil-free moisturizer would actually help reduce your skin’s oil production throughout the day. Always let it set before you apply your makeup.
- Try some at-home remedies.
Natural ingredients like honey, lemon, almonds, and jojoba oil can make for the perfect DIY mask. Honey and lemon fight off oils with its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, while almonds and jojoba oil can directly exfoliate the pores and soak up any excess oils.
- Exfoliate at least once a week.
Exfoliate every week, but not every day. Exfoliation is important for preventing the buildup of oil and dirt in your pores, but over-exfoliation might trigger an overproduction of your face’s oils. Try to stick to the same routine every week and adjust accordingly.
- Make oil blotting sheets your handbag’s new essential
Last, but certainly not least, blotting sheets are the most essential item in combating excess oils. Oily skin is problematic alone, but when you already have your makeup on, oiliness is especially not welcome. However, blotting sheets absorb the oils on your face even with your makeup on, quickly pulling you back from a shiny mess to a glowing matte with your makeup intact.
Our natural and sustainably packaged oil absorbing sheets are designed to clear up any oiliness or shine while keeping your makeup looking fresh for hours. They’re super easy to use, soft on the skin, and so durable that they set a new standard for what oil blotting sheets should be like. To maintain the perfectly balanced natural glow, try the Natural Green Tea oil absorbing sheets or the Organic Bamboo Charcoal oil blotting tissues.
So, if you’re looking a little shiny lately, don’t be hard on yourself. A good skin care routine is one that knows to adjust when it needs to. But when you’re too busy to do anything else, blotting away the oils is probably your quickest and best bet to keep your skin looking fresh. Can’t forget this essential!
