Hello! How are you? Last week I shared with you a routine that I really wanted to publish: my night routine to reduce wrinkles. In that post I gave you a few tricks to improve your night routines if what you are interested in is reducing fine lines.
In this post I will give you a few tricks for those who, like me, have oily skin and aim to keep your oil levels balanced while hydrating your skin in depth. As you know, those of us with oily skin must be very cautious with cleansing, we should not abuse it if we do not want to achieve the opposite result, since a very aggressive cleanse ends up dehydrating the skin, unbalancing the hydrolipidic barrier so that it generates more oil.
In this post I am going to talk about several products that work great to keep the skin clean, nourished and well hydrated. Among the products included in this routine are:
- The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser
- Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap
- Pixi Glow Tonic
- The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
- The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
- The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + ECGC
- Youth to the People Superfood Moisture Cream
Ever since I started double cleansing I don’t look back. Starting your routine with a good like this oil-based one from The Ordinary is key (here you can check my complete review). It has a very comfortable, lotion-like texture that turns into a very gentle oil while applying it. It’s the perfect product to start double cleansing.
You already know that lately I am in a phase of discovering Korean cosmetics, trying a lot of products and incorporating them into my beauty routines to see how they feel on my skin. In this case, I bring you a Klairs cleansing soap that’s great for oily skin because of its composition, which is rich in sugar, charcoal and jojoba oil.
It’s important to use this gently, since an aggressive cleanse can be very counterproductive (yes, even if you have oily or combination skin).
You can get the Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap on Wishtrend, on Yesstyle and on Amazon.
If you want to know how my experience buying at Wishtrend was, you can check my post on Where to buy Korean cosmetics.
Those who know me better know that I am very happy with this toner (as I explained on its review). Its composition, with glycolic acid (an AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acid) is excellent for removing dead skin so that it absorbs better the rest of your skincare routine. In addition, this toner will help your skin look firmer and smoother, making it a great anti-aging solution. Since we shouldn’t abuse exfoliating acids, I’d recommend you to use it every other day (or just twice a week), so you may combine it with this other hydrating toner from Pyunkang Yul.
It’s been a while since I first told you about this wonderful serum, but I do not tire of recommending it. Since I started using it I am very happy with the result. It is an effective and nutritious serum that gives your skin the hydration it needs thanks to its composition rich in hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5. For its part, hyaluronic acid hydrates your skin in depth, while vitamin B5 gives you superficial hydration that gives you a more rejuvenated and active look.
Niacinamide is a wonderful ingredient for those with combination or oily skin. It has several properties that can work wonders for us, since it both reduces excess oil production while reducing redness. Niacinamide has become a key part of my skincare routines for quite some time, I’m sure once you start using it you’ll love it too.
Those of you who have been following me for some time already know that this eye contour is one of my favourite products of The Ordinary. This is an eye contour rich in antioxidants that will come great to reduce your bags and dark circles, minimize congestion and give you a younger, active and healthy.
7. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE SUPERFOOD MOISTURE CREAM.
Those of us with oily skin usually think about cleansing, cleansing and cleansing, but hydration is one of the keys to healthy skin. This moisturizer is rich in antioxidants and hyaluronic acid, which will allow you to have a younger skin at the same time you nourish it in depth, how does that sound?
With this routine I am sure that you will be able to reduce your oil levels while keeping your skin well nourished and hydrated, is not it perfect? Soon I will continue to share more routines so that you will find everything your skin needs, stay tuned! If you have any question you just have to leave a comment and I will answer you as soon as possible.
