How often should I moisturise if I’ve got oily skin?
If you’ve got oily skin, you might believe that applying moisturiser onto already oily skin is counterproductive.
But you just need a moisturiser that’s suited for your skin type, and if it’s oily, you may need an oil-free, water-based, non-comedogenic moisturiser.
It’s recommended that most people should moisturise twice per day, but if your skin is oily, you can get away with doing it once.
How often should I wash my face if I’ve got oily skin?
If you’ve got oily skin, it can be tempting to wash your face more than twice per day to remove the buildup of excess oils.
Actually, this is doing your skin more harm than good.
It will cause your skin to become dry, forcing it to produce more oil to make up for the lost moisture.
You should only wash your face twice per day - once in the morning and once in the evening with a facial wash or cleanser formulated for oily skin.
One key ingredient to look out for is salicylic acid which is a great acne-fighting ingredient, a common problem if you’ve got oily skin.
What is the best type of face mask for oily skin?
If you’ve got oily, acne-prone skin, look for face masks that contain clay, charcoal and salicylic acid.
Clay and charcoal soak up excess oils and remove impurities deep within your pores, while salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and penetrates past the surface to fight inflammation.
Which face wash is best for oily skin?
Having oily skin can be difficult, especially when it comes to choosing the right products for your skin.
When looking for a face wash for your oily skin, look out for ingredients like hyaluronic acid to hydrate your skin.
Whilst that may seem counterproductive, oily skin can actually be caused by dehydration, as your skin starts to overcompensate for the lack of moisture by producing too much oil.
Other beneficial ingredients for oily skin are niacinamide, retinol and salicylic acid.
