Do you have oily skin? If so, you know how frustrating it can be to deal with. Excessive oil production can leave your skin feeling greasy and shiny, making it difficult to apply makeup and leading to breakouts, uneven texture, and enlarged pores.
But don't worry! With a consistent skincare routine and healthy habits, oily skin can become clearer, smoother, and healthier-looking.
Here are our daily, weekly and monthly hacks!
Daily Hacks - 5 min
- Cleanse: Wash your face with a gentle salicylic acid cleanser. Salicylic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that helps to exfoliate the skin and unclog pores.
- Tone: Apply a toner to help balance the pH of your skin and reduce the appearance of pores.
- (Extra): Use an oil control serum before you apply any moisturizer.
- Moisturize: Use with a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer. This will keep your skin hydrated without clogging your pores.
- Throughout the day: Try dampening a tissue with Tidel Rose Spray to absorb excess oil while replenishing and rehydrating your skin.
