this weeks things…-post contains my daily skin care routine for oily skin. I’m dealing with oily skin for years now and I know that it can be awfully annoying especially when you’re wearing makeup for the whole day and can feel
how your skin gets more and more greasy. So here I’m gonna share with you the products that I’ve been using that are helping me to deal with it. I’m also using a night cream, but since that’s changing and I’m still trying to fin out whats working best for me.
I’m a big fan of the La Roche-Posay products especially the Effaclar series. The series is also good if you’re dealing with breakouts. My favorite product from the range is definitely the foaming gel cleanser. It’s great to remove makeup and any oil from your skin and you’re left with a clean feeling skin. The moisturizer I use during the day and also as a makeup-base. Since it has more of a gel consistency it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.
The Clinique clarifying lotion I’ve been using over the last year. It’s great to use before applying makeup if you have the feeling that you’re skin is too oily.
An excellent alternative for the Clinique clarifying lotion ist this Lierac Prescription Paris soothing and balancing micellare solution. It has a similar effect but also can be used to remove makeup.
This sunscreen came much to my liking this summer while traveling through Asia. It’s not heavy on the skin and feels very light. If you have oily skin you tend to not use sunscreen because it’s very heavy and you’re face gets greasy pretty quickly. Most sun protectors you could use that aren’t feeling to heavy are very expensive. An awesome alternative are Asian skin care brands like this one called Missha.
Our absolute favorite product that both, Juli and I, love is the Origins Zero Oil. It’s especially great if you’re going on a night out and don’t want to worry about looking shiny on all the pictures you’re going to take. You can also reapply it during the night or day and it will instantly soak away all the oil, for that’s especially on the forehead.
If you have some tips for oily skin please share them with us 🙂
Hope you’re having a great week 🙂
Lots of love,
