The Ultimate Skincare Routine For Oily Skin 

Use an oily skin-friendly foaming or gel cleanser in the morning. Salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide can reduce oil and breakouts. Pat dry and rinse well with lukewarm water.  

Cleanser 

Morning Routine 

A mattifying or balancing toner tightens pores and removes impurities. Try witch hazel, niacinamide, or tea tree oil toners for oil control and skin soothing.  

Toner 

Use a lightweight, oil-free acne or hyperpigmentation serum. For acne-prone and oily skin, look for serums with salicylic acid, niacinamide, or vitamin C.  

Serum  

Oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizers hydrate skin. Look for matte, lightweight, fast-absorbing formulas. Glycerin and hyaluronic acid help oily skin.  

Moisturizer 

SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum sunscreen after morning routine. Use oil-free, non-greasy products to avoid blocking pores. Apply sunscreen liberally and reapply throughout the day, especially outdoors.  

Sunscreen 

Remove makeup and sunscreen with a light oil-based cleanser or micellar water. Clean the skin again with your usual cleanser to remove impurities.  

Double Cleanse 

Evening Routine 

Light chemical exfoliators like salicylic acid or glycolic acid remove dead skin, cleanse pores, and prevent breakouts. Heavy washing can irritate skin and increase oil production.  

Exfoliation  

After cleansing, use a balanced toner to balance pH and prepare skin for skincare.  

Toner 

Target acne or pimples with spot treatments. Reduce inflammation and acne-causing germs with benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil, or sulfur.  

Treatment 

After bedtime, use a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer. HA and niacinamide balance oil production and minimize shine.  

Moisturizer 

Once or twice a week, use kaolin or bentonite clay masks to absorb oil, unclog pores, and mattify skin. Wear the mask for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water.
