Top Tips to Keep Away the Oil 

It is no secret that oily skin can be a HUGE pain especially in the Summertime. The key is to strike a balance between having an excess of oil and maintaining your skin’s natural moisture and glow. Read on for our top four dos and top four don’ts of keeping oil at bay in the summer! 


DO Exfoliate Regularly: Exfoliating oily skin can be tricky business – do it too infrequently and you are stuck with a greasy visage, do it too frequently and you will dry your skin out so much that it will begin producing even more oil as compensation. The key to this Do is balance.  


DO Wash Every Day, Night, & After Exercise: Those with oily skin need to vigorously adhere to their facial cleansing schedule. Choose a facial cleanser that will combat oil and shine but not strip the skin of oils.    


DO Choose the Right Makeup: Make sure to purchase makeup that works with your skin. Look for cosmetics labeled “shine-free” and/or “mattifying”. Do beware of talc!  


DO Use a Gentle, Foaming Face Wash: Many people believe that they need to use a strong face wash for oily skin in order to dry out their skin. However, using a face wash that is too harsh can irritate your skin and trigger increased oil production. Instead, look for a mild, gentle face wash.  


DON’T Skip the Moisturizer: We technically already mentioned this one is the Dos, but oily skin needs moisture too, so don’t skip this step! Keep up the daily moisturizing, just make sure to pick one formulated for your needs.  


DON’T Sleep on a Dirty Pillowcase: Pillowcases absorb dirt, grease and grime and you spend eight hours a night resting your face on them! To keep your freshly washed faced clean, change your bed pillowcase frequently. Stock up on pillowcases during a sale and try to switch it out every other night.  


DON’T Use Non-Water-soluble Oil or Alcohol Based Cleansers: While alcohol-based cleansers are effective at removing oil, they can cause the skin to dry out, which causes the body to react by overproducing oil.  


DON’T Touch Your Face Throughout the Day: Although it’s tempting to touch your face, doing so can spread dirt, oil and bacteria from your hands to your face. Only touch your face when you’re cleansing, moisturizing, or applying sunscreen or makeup, and make sure your hands are clean first.
