LIGHTWEIGHT, NON-GREASY PRODUCTS FOR OILY SKIN TYPES
Oily skin type occurs when your face produces excess sebum, natural oils, which can give
an unwanted sheen across the face. Oily skin is usually more apparent in areas such as
the T-zone (nose, forehead, and chin). We at La Roche-Posay have developed a variety of
products recommended by dermatologists, providing different care to different areas for oily skin.
If you have an oily skin type and want to reduce excess sebum in skin, it’s helpful to use products and ingredients that are specifically formulated for oily skin types. Make sure to wash your face regularly with an effective face cleanser to wash away excess oil and help clear the pores from getting clogged.
Always begin a skincare routine for oily skin with cleansing, and follow this with an effective toner to help remove any residual oil build-ups or impurities. When the skin is freshly cleansed, the skin is prepped for corrective and hydrating serums to help nourish the skin and provide hydration. In the mornings, always finish your skincare routine with SPF protection. Learn more about a good skincare routine for oily and acne-prone skin types here.
Yes, oily skin types should use moisturiser. Choosing a moisturiser that is suitable for oily skin types will help moisturise the skin without sitting too heavily on the skin’s surface. Oily skin types can sometimes be lacking hydration and produce excess sebum to compensate the lack of hydration. To avoid this, use a facial moisturiser like the Effaclar Matte Anti-Shine Moisturiser that can hydrate the skin while leaving a mattifying effect.
