Everyone wants to have that “skin glow” but when you have oily skin, the glow might just look greasy. Developing a daily skincare routine for oily skin can get tiring especially when you’re not getting desired results. Oily skin comes with frequent issues like persistent acne, large pores, constant shine, rough skin texture, and so on (unfortunately). While some people are born with oily skin types, others might just be suffering from hormonal and environmental changes.
You can’t order for a brand new skin but you can manage oily skin with the right morning and nighttime skincare routine.
Morning Skincare Routine For Oily Skin
1. Use a Cleanser
The first step to your morning skincare routine is to cleanse to get rid of all the dirt and oil that settled on your skin through the night. Regular cleansing with a mild cleanser would prevent excess oils and fight pimples. Cleansing in the morning would leave your skin feeling fresh and ready for the next step in your routine.
The Moonbow Face and Body Soapless Cleanser is a perfect go-to mild cleanser for oily skin. The Kaolin clay and glycerin present would deep cleanse the skin without drying it out.
The New Moon Face and Body Soapless Cleanserbalances the oils on your skin and also gets rid of blackheads and whiteheads as well as other impurities on your skin.
2. Next Is A Toner
Toners are great for not only balancing your skin ph level but also tightening the pores. Natural toners get rid of stubborn dirt and make your pores appear smaller. Keep in mind that alcohol-based tones will dry out your skin while water-based toners would leave your skin feeling moisturized and prepped for the next products.
The Mayan Magic Face Toner is a water-based toner that’ll leave your skin feeling moisturized. The presence of MHRB promotes a smooth and even skin tone.
3. Go In With Your Moisturizer
Don’t be deceived; even oily skin needs to be moisturized. Moisturizing your skin helps to balance the oils because if your skin feels dry, it tends to produce more oils. Using a lightweight moisturizer, your skin would look and feel hydrated.
Sunscreen may be the last but it’s certainly not the least in your skincare routine. There’s little chance of your skincare products working without the protection of sunscreen. When you expose your skin to sunlight without any protection, it can cause damage to your skin. Make use of a mineral-based sunscreen which provides a protective layer for your skin against direct sunlight. Chemical-based sunscreen will do more damage than good so avoid them!
Nighttime Skincare Routine
1. Deep Cleanse After Taking Off Your Makeup
At the end of a busy day, it’s important to remove your makeup properly to prevent dirt buildup. Micellar water is a great option for removing makeup from your face gently. The next step would be to use a mild cleanser to get into your pores and remove tiny dirt particles.
The Salt and Earth Face and Body Soapless Cleansergets rid of stubborn dirt and leaves your skin feeling clean without getting dried out.
Exfoliating your skin is such an important step if you want to get rid of dead skin cells. When you exfoliate 2-3 times in 2 weeks, it ensures that your pores are free of dirt buildup and dead skin cells. Exfoliating correctly also makes your skincare products work better. All your moisturizers and serums would sink into your skin and work perfectly. Exfoliating also kills acne bacteria by exposing them to oxygen.
The Mayan Charcoal Mask is filled with natural ingredients that are beneficial to oily skin like Kaolin clay, MHRD, and so on. This mask deep cleanses and unclogs your skin making other products work maximally.
The Mariposa Face Mask is free from physical exfoliants which makes it mild on the skin but still gets rid of impurities and prevents flaking.
3. Don’t Leave Out Your Toner
Just like we’ve mentioned earlier, using a toner would help to tighten your pores and promote an even skin tone. After exfoliating your skin, you need to tighten your cell gaps and balance your skin’s ph level. The Mayan Magic Face Toner would come in handy again.
4. Apply A Serum
Serums are perfect for hydrating and regenerating your skin. Serums are naturally mild and calming which helps to refine and give you an even-looking skin tone.
The Mayan Magic Face Serum smoothens your skin to prevent flaking through the night. Include this serum in your nighttime routine and wake up with a naturally glowing skin (and ungreasy) skin.
Even with all its challenges, there are so many advantages of oily skin so don’t hate your skin! Proper care and a consistent skincare routine would ensure that your skin looks and feels radiant!
