Figuring out the right type of products to use for your skin type and the order to apply them can be overwhelming, especially if you’re new to the skin care world. For a beginner, it’s best to stick to the basics, so your daily routine should include cleansing, moisturizing and applying sunscreen.

Here’s a breakdown of a simple routine for oily skin: 

A Step-by-Step Guide

This step should always be in your evening routine, even on days when you don’t apply makeup, as double cleansing also helps remove sunscreen. Go for a cleansing balm to get rid of skin impurities and excess sebum.

Start your nighttime routine by  gently massaging a generous amount of daymellow’s Light Clean Pink Balm Cleanser all over your face. The balm cleanser is formulated with papaya fruit extract and PHA to remove dead skin cells, leaving you with a soft and smooth complexion. For oily skin, it’s important to use products that don’t strip skin of its natural oils. Thanks to the avocado and camellia oils in its formula, this balm cleanser protects the skin’s moisture barrier.

The next step is a foaming cleanser. Use a gentle cleanser like Dr. Ceuracle’s Tea Tree Purifine 30 Cleansing Foam to get rid of any traces of dirt left on skin and to remove pore-clogging impurities. Since oily skin is more prone to breakouts, cleansing properly can help keep those breakouts at bay and even prevent the formation of blackheads.

Dr. Ceuracle’s foam cleanser is perfect for oily or acne-prone skin. It’s packed with soothing and purifying ingredients, such as tea tree extract, trehalose and Vitamins A, C and E, to keep your skin clean and nourished while reducing inflammation from pimples. You can use it in your morning and evening routines. 

No matter how oily your skin gets, never skip this step! Even those with oily skin need a good moisturizer that keeps skin hydrated and protects the skin barrier. Skipping this step will only leave you with dehydrated skin, which causes it to produce even more oil.

A gel moisturizer is ideal for oily skin − it’s lightweight and delivers just enough hydration. MAY COOP’s Bamboo Water Gel helps maintain a healthy skin barrier thanks to its VB5 Hydro Complex. The lightweight gel cream also contains bamboo sap, plankton extract and lotus extract to soothe, moisturize and protect skin from external stressors, especially pollution.

While a moisturizer serves as the last step of your evening routine, sunscreen should be the final and most fundamental step of your morning routine. Sunscreens not only protect skin against UV damage but also help maintain an even skin tone and prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

Shield your skin with Benton’s Mineral Sun Stick. Lightweight enough for daily wear, it’s formulated with nourishing ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, Vitamin E and tocopherol, to keep skin hydrated all day. The velvety, balm-like texture glides effortlessly onto skin without leaving any greasiness or white cast. 

Building a skin care routine requires a bit of trial and error, so don’t worry if a product doesn’t work out for your skin type. It may take time to find the right products, but with patience, you’ll get there. Stay tuned for the next chapter on building a basic skin care routine for dry skin!
