Good Skin Care Routine For Oily Skin

Oily skin not only feels uncomfortable, it can also increase acne breakouts. We’ve got the perfect plant-based ingredients and routine to keep shiny, oily skin at bay. Look and feel your best and be comfortable in the skin you’re in.

Oily skin can be caused by genetic, dietary, hormonal or environmental factors. Humid or hot weather can increase the production of excess oil, for instance. The bottom line is that oily skin is not always a self-made problem. But that doesn’t mean you have to grin and bear it. There are simple ways you can rebalance your skin and give it the healthy look you deserve.

What can you do to combat oily skin?

By maintaining consistent skin care maintenance and applying the right products, you can combat the appearance of greasy, acne-prone skin.

You just have to know which products to use and how to apply them for best results. Below, we’ve created a simple three-step skin care regimen that works for oily skin.


Step 1: Cleanse
Apply a small amount of the Active Face Cleanse Gel to your face with cool water. Rub along your cheeks, forehead and chin. Rub into your jaw and hairline as well for full coverage. Let this light and refreshing skin cleanser soak into your skin. Then, rinse with cool water. Gently dry your skin with a face cloth and you’re ready for the next step!

Step 2: Moisturise
Apply a small amount of the Active Face Hydrating Gel to your face for an instant moisturising boost. No need to rinse, let the nourishment sink in.

Step 3: Face Mask
The first two steps are your bare essentials. However, to help lift more stubborn impurities and even your complexion, we recommend applying an organic Detox Face Mask once or twice a week.


Products to avoid using

There are some beauty practices that can make oily skin worse. The skin on our face is delicate, and while you want to remove the build-up of dead-skin cells, makeup and other environmental impurities, there is a gentle and natural way to achieve this.

  • Using a rough washcloth or loofah pad for instance can aggravate the skin. Instead, we recommend a soft cotton or bamboo face cloth.
  • It is possible to overwash your face. Twice a day, morning and evening, is more than sufficient. Be gentle!
  • If your skin type is combination or oily, avoid going for dry skin cleaners. Why? This could dry out your skin and increase oil production.
  • Make sure you opt for oil-free and non-comedogenic products to avoid clogging your pores. Let your skin breathe.

With these tried-and-tested skin care tactics, you should be able to replace greasy, shiny skin with a healthy, radiant glow.
