"Why is my face so oily lately?" you ask yourself, examining your reflection in the mirror. It doesn’t make sense - you follow a skin care routine, exfoliate regularly and constantly research new products that target oily skin.
Unfortunately, excess oil doesn't just happen to those with genetically oily skin - virtually anyone can experience an oily face in the form of breakthrough shine throughout the day. You can eliminate your oily skin permanently as long as you continually manage it with the proper products and skin care routine.
This professional, esthetician-approved skin care routine will minimize oily skin and give you the matte, healthy + glowing skin you dream of. These products are used in the treatment room during professional facials and deliver real results.
CLEANSE: Decongestant Cleanser
This lathering gel cleanser for oily skin removes all traces of impurities,
excess oil and makeup. Choosing the right cleanser for oily skin is crucial, but how often you cleanse is just as important. Cleansing more than twice a day strips your skin and dehydrates it, causing your skin to respond with a surge of more oil to compensate for what's been stripped away, so stick to only cleansing in the morning and evening for the best results.
Apply two pumps to wet skin and massage over face. Rinse with warm water and lightly pat dry. Use AM and PM.
This alcohol-free toner features Chinese herbs and aromatherapist oils to strengthen and calm skin. Don't skip this step – it is crucial to prime your oily skin for the rest of your skin care.
After cleansing, spritz Equalizer all over face, neck and v-area. Gently massage into the skin, leaving it slightly moist. Use AM and PM.
EXFOLIATE: Measured Micrograins +
To refine pores, control oil and strengthen skin, exfoliate with this multi-action scrub that invigorates and refreshes oily skin.
Use 1-3 times a week after toner. Apply the size of a pea to moist skin and gently massage. Rinse off with water. Use AM or PM.
MASK: Restorative Clay
This renewing clay face mask for oily skin only needs 10 minutes to absorb excess oil + dirt while improving skin texture.
Use 1-2 times a week after toner or exfoliator. Apply and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse well. Use AM or PM.
TARGET: Oil Control Mattifier
Stop oil at its source with this feather-light formula that soaks up excess shine on the surface while targeting oily sebum deep in your skin's follicles. This oily skin treatment acts as a mattifying primer for oily skin - apply it right before your moisturizer for a perfect matte finish, keep an oily t-zone at bay and help makeup stay in place.
After toning, apply it all over or just to oily areas – you can even apply it right over your makeup during the day!
MOISTURIZE: Beyond Hydration
Even oily skin needs to moisturize. In fact, oily skin can actually be caused by dehydration! This refreshing, lightweight gel moisturizer for oily skin leaves your complexion comfortable + hydrated without added shine.
Apply to the face and neck. Moisturize after you exfoliate and/or mask as well. Use AM and PM.
TREAT OVERNIGHT: Oil Control Sleepwear
