Skin Type: OILY

Skin Concern: ACNE

A huge downside to having oily skin is the struggle of choosing the right products for your skincare routine. Don’t panic just yet! Because we have handpicked some products for a skincare routine just for you that will help treat your oily skin and will get rid of your stubborn acne.


So, what is Oily Skin?

Your skin type is actually determined by how much oil the skin on your face produces and surprise surprise, oily skin produces extra oils than usual. Oily skin happens when your face secretes extra oils known as sebum. Sebum isn’t as bad as it sounds though! It is actually vital for keeping your skin healthy. Sebum coats the skin and protects it from becoming irritated and dry.  However, too much sebum can clog your pores making you more prone to acne, blackheads, and pimples.

If you have Oily skin, you’ll notice a few or all of the following symptoms-

  • Shiny and greasy appearance

  • Larger, clogged pores

  • Acne, pimples or blackheads in areas your face produces excess oils

  • Papules (a small pimple or swelling on the skin, often forming part of a rash.)

It’s not all bad news though! People with oily skin usually age better as the extra oils help to keep the skin supple and hydrated. So you won’t have to fork out as much money to spend on anti-aging products in the long run.

Here is what you’ve been waiting for, your personalised daily skincare routine!
