Daily Skin Care Regimen
If you have acne or oily skin, you want to look for products that absorb oil, hydrate without added oil, and moisturize your skin without oil.
Cleanse skin both day and night with a mild sudsy or gel cleanser. Use a toner to wipe of residual dirt and soap, and finally follow with a light moisturizer with SPF for the day. Use a product that is mild and light; many times the packaging will indicate that it is non-comedegenic. Products formulated specifically for oily skin condition should be suitable for almost any use. You will want to purchase a skincare line that fits the level of your skin's needs.
Weekly Skin Care Routine
Exfoliate once or twice per week. This will assist with cell turnover and will expose the healthy skin underneath. Over-exfoliating or exfoliating with harsh ingredients can irritate skin and possibly cause further breakouts, so stick with a product that has micro beads or exfoliating ingredients.
Use a weekly mask to help cleanse and tighten pores. Masks made with clay effectively absorb excess oil and are highly recommended and essential to controlling an oily complexion. Finally use a spot treatment as needed during the day or night. If skin becomes flaky or irritated, decrease the frequency of use. One final note: Choose your cosmetics and hair care products wisely. Many can be contributors of skin sensitivity or flare-ups.
