3 Tips for Combating Oily Skin

By: Alex McCray

While our skin type isn’t something we can change, there are ways we can make the most of what we’ve got. Here are a few things I do regularly as a part of my beauty routine to combat my oily skin.

1.     Keep It Clean

Having a clean base is a great starting point no matter what type of skin you have, but especially for those of us who are oily (and acne-prone).

 

I’ve been a diehard fan of Proactiv since high school. There’s something about the pimple-fighting Benzoyl Peroxide in the cleanser and moisturizer, along with the gentle but deep exfoliating power of the Glycolic Acid toner that makes me feel like I’m really getting that grease off without stripping my skin.

 

2.     Keep Layers Minimal

I find that when I keep my makeup layers minimal my skin can breathe and tends to produce less oil. Instead of going for a super full-coverage look every day, try to stick to your makeup basics. Do what makes you feel like you look “put together” while leaving as much off your skin as possible.

 

3.     Go Bare

I also like to let my skin be au naturel. I think letting my skin do its thing every now and then actually encourages it to produce less oil. And sometimes we just have to succumb to the skin we’re born with it.

 

Hopefully, these ideas will make your relationship with your oily skin a tad less tumultuous.
