Skincare routine for oily skin :
Any skincare routine I always like to get comfortable in my nice fluffy robe and then put on my spot headband which keeps my hair away from the face and then I might add my hair back with a scrunchie I love these things the first step I’m going to share with you guys is to always remove the dirt and oil even if you don’t have any makeup on already skincare on it’s always good to start with a clean surface that’s why I love the bioderma sensibio H2o micellar water it’s fragrance free paraben free and alcohol-free and it’s great a for red and intolerant sensitive skin just a couple of cotton pads and swipe swipe swipe.
Then I’m done the next skincare tip no one tells you is to use low pH cleansers one of my favorites is the Vichy pare teather mount this is great especially if you’re in your teen years why hard water alkaline soaps and body washes especially in the shower can disrupt your pH so you want to keep your skin’s optimal pH balance of 5.5 this keeps your skin soft and supple without that tight and dry feeling another tip I highly recommend is getting a face brush even if you don’t have that something like this like a baby skin smoother is super affordable and easy to use and brush helps get into those areas where your fingers can when I’m finished cleansing.
I just runs up with warm water and pat dry one tip I wish I knew in high school was to keep my skin cool if your heated or you play a lot of sports and you’re sweating all the time even a cold rinse once throughout the day can do wonders using toner in my teen years was a lifesaver this was especially helpful when I had oily skin and breakouts that’s why I love the fairs witch hazel I love your toner it’s a great skin care ingredient because it contains anti-inflammatory properties that help manage things like eczema acne psoriasis aloe is also packed full of antioxidants that help the skin stay firm and moisturized in tried-and-tested tip that I have stood by for years is using toothpaste this is the Jason C fresh one.
I just take a tiny amount and apply it over any pimples or breakouts it’s even good as a preventative measure as well this is also a cost-effective way you can want to get rid of pimples fast I leave this on for no longer than five minutes and then I just wipe it off with a wet towel you might find a little bit of redness but I find this goes down in just a few seconds so it’s not a big deal but if you do find it more irritating just do a test patch first before applying it on to your breakout know if you want something that has a bit more punch I love using the Kiehl’s breakout control targeted blemish spot treatment this is really good to help reduce the appearance of blemishes it also is a formulated with sulfur in vitamin b3 and its really great for blemish prone skin another tip.
I wish I knew was using essence instead of a heavy cream and your teenage years your skin is quite sensitive so the lighter your moisturizer is I find that it works better this blemish water Bank Hydra essence is one of my favorites it really drenches the skin and keeps it moisturized without feeling super happy and my skin has that nice natural glow one thing that I wish I started earlier was using retinol one of my favorites is the Olay Regenerist but not 24 face moisturizer this is super gentle on the skin and doesn’t leave any issue mist or redness a fun fact about retinol is that it’s not just used for anti-aging it can also help with acne scars with skin texture and smoothness in the skin this is a great addition to put into your skincare routine at night time if you’re starting out with retinol apply gradually and work your way from there and last but not least one of the most important things in your teen years is to use sunscreen Durham’s recommend using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 which blocks 97% of the sun’s UV rays a higher number SPF just blocks it a bit more not too much so the minimum you should be using is 30 and try to do it 30 minutes before going out in the Sun sunscreen isn’t just for the face don’t forget your lips and your neck and now we’re done.
