My everyday skin routine for oily/combination skin
I have had quite the journey with my oily/ combination skin, that is often prone to breakouts and I’ve finally found an everyday routine that works for me.
I spent a lot of time researching the best skincare for oily skin, mostly via google but also reading blog or Youtube reviews and now I finally have it figured out. I still get the odd hormonal break out because I mean, who has perfect skin all the time but I find these are few and far between. My skin is glowing, less oily and really healthy. These are all the products I use on the daily.
I tend to double cleanse when I have worn make up, i.e. using two cleansers but if it’s been a no make up day, I alternate between these two.
I use Caudelie Instant Foaming Cleanser first to remove the make up and then I use Garnier Pure Active Micellar Water for oily skin. When cleansing I use a muslin cloth from Facetheory* for the foaming cleanser and then reusable cotton pads for the micellar water.
I use something anti-aging like the Facetheory Reganacalm serum * with 2% retinol. I love all the other natural ingredients like dill and liquorice which gives it this lovely scent as well reduces fine lines and boosts the production of collagen. I use this twice a week
I use a few of The Ordinary products starting with The Ordinary Niacinamide + Zinc 1% in the morning and before bed and this stuff has genuinely changed my life. Niacinamide really helps with acne as well as minimising pores and keeping the skin smooth and moisturised.
As my skin is oily and the niacinamide and hylaluronic is often all the moisturising I need. I only moisturise my face 2 times a week maximum when I do, I use Sukin’s oil free moisturiser it’s moisturising but doesn’t leave me skin drenched and is specifically for blemish prone skin
Once a week I will give my skin a much needed face mask. I’ve recently been using Facetheory’s Green Tea Rescue Mask * which is just feels gorgeous on my skin. I’ve really seen difference in how my skin looks and it is visibly glowing for days.
