Skincare for oily skin: the basic steps

Hormonal changes, incorrect diet, genetics and humid environments: these are just some of the causes of oily skin. Fortunately, a skincare routine for oily skin can make all the difference, helping to keep the problem under control. Of course, you need to choose the right products . First of all, the following must be absolutely avoided: neutral or sulfur soaps, moisturizing creams with a greasy texture, gels with alcohol, antiseptic-based detergents and cortisone-based lotions. On the contrary, items suitable for your skin type should be chosen. The beauty routine for oily skin includes five basic steps :

  • cleanse : both in the morning and in the evening with a foaming and sebum-regulating product; in the evening also use an oily cleanser;
  • normalize: apply a sebum-regulating cream or an ad hoc serum. Both go to prevent excessive sebum production. Once a week you can also use a specific mask for oily skin;
  • purify: especially in the case of acne-prone skin, choose exfoliating and rebalancing masks or face scrubs . Do not perform the treatment more than three times a week because you risk getting the opposite effect;
  • hydrate : both in the morning and in the evening, apply a light texture sebum-regulating cream with a mattifying effect and Spf filter;
  • protect: as with all other types of epidermis, even with oily skin it is necessary to protect it with specific creams that have a filter against UVA/UVB rays.

The skincare steps for oily and sensitive skin should be done all, seven days a week. Only in this way will the typical problems of this epidermis be avoided.
