One of the reasons I fell in love with skincare was because I have acne-prone, oily skin.
After years of struggling with acne and a shiny T-zone, I realized the key to my skin type was finding balance!
Here are my favorite oily skin tips:
(proofed and approved by my esthetician & business partner, Emily Sindlinger!)
1. USE A TONER AFTER CLEANSING!
And not just ANY toner-an alcohol-free toner that won’t over-dry the skin.
My favorite toner for oily skin is our Spiced Wine Toner. It really helps to balance the skin and remove any excess impurities left behind after cleansing.
2. DON’T OVER DRY OR OVER STRIP THE SKIN
I get it, logic says if your skin is oily-so you should remove the oily. But it’s a MYTH! This may work short term, but in the long run, you end up causing the skin to produce extra oil, causing further breakouts.
To help battle dryness while keeping things light, I use my favorite Sorella serum:
Hyaluronic acid & snow mushroom extract provide weightless moisture that keeps that skin happy and balanced!
Also, remember to hydrate and don’t skip the moisturizer! I like our Daily Greens for a big dose of vitamins and hydration with a matte effect as well!
3. DON’T FORGET A MATTIFYING SPF
You’ve heard your esthetician preach! Everyone needs an SPF. Why not try one with Mattifying properties that help to soak up those oils?
People have been known to obsess over our Tropical Topical SPF as a makeup base!
4. LAST, BUT NOT LEAST-WEAR A QUALITY MAKEUP!
Wear makeup that isn’t too heavy and full of harsh ingredients that won’t clog your pores. Shoot, maybe even go makeup-less every now and then!
We are big fans of mineral makeups and brands such as Jane Iredale here at Sorella!
That’s it for now!
I hope these tips help you to battle shiny skin but keep your glow!
