Taking care of oily skin isn’t always the easiest of tasks—and if this is your skin type, this is likely something that you know well. When it comes to putting together a skin care routine for oily skin, it’s all about finding the right skin care products, from cleansers to moisturizers to face masks to everything in between. One of the best things you can do for oily skin is to look for skin care products that are mattifying, as these can help reduce the appearance of excess shine. Keep reading for our best skin care products for oily skin along with tips for using each one.
Start off your skin care routine for oily skin with cleansing. This should be the first step in your skin care routine no matter what skin type you have, and it’s especially important for those with oily skin.
The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser is formulated to seamlessly transform from clay to mousse and remove everyday impurities from the surface of your skin without over-drying it. Immediately, skin is purified of dirt, oil, and pollution and is left with a clean, clear look. Skin also feels purer with a matte finish. Once a day, squeeze a small amount of cleanser into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage the cleanser onto your face using circular motions, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Micellar water is one of the most convenient skin care products you can use—and it can certainly come in handy if you have oily skin. Micellar water is a no-rinse cleanser powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that act as a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from the skin. Since you don’t have to be anywhere near a sink to use micellar water, it’s a great option for removing your makeup (and cleansing your skin) on those nights when you’re feeling too lazy to go through a complicated skin care routine. Heading to the gym? Toss a bottle of micellar water in your bag so that you can easily cleanse post-workout without having to jostle for position at the sink in the locker room.
The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Normal to Oily Skin removes makeup, cleans dirt and oils from the surface of your skin, and purifies and mattifies your complexion. All you have to do is saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your face. For eye makeup removal, hold the pad over closed eyes for a few seconds, then wipe.
Treat your oily skin to an at-home spa day by adding a face mask to your regular skin care routine. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask is formulated with three types of clay and eucalyptus leaf extract. It can help draw out the buildup of dirt, impurities, and excess oils and reduce the appearance of excess shine. Immediately, skin looks clean and clear as well as less shiny. After cleansing, apply a thin, even layer to skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Then, rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and follow up with moisturizer (we’ve got our pick for oily skin below!). Use three times a week for best results.
You may think you can get away without using moisturizer if you have oily skin, but that’s not actually the case. Every skin type needs hydration, including oily skin. Again, it’s all about finding the right moisturizer for oily skin. We recommend trying the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Normal/Oily Skin, which is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration with a matte finish. Smooth it over your face and neck morning and night after cleansing.
