The Perfect Summer Routine for Oily Skin


Cleanse: Cleanse your face twice a day with a mild liquid cleanser or bar formulated for oily skin.  Skip soaps that are harsh or detergent based, over time, these cleansers can damage your skin.

Moisturize: Use a moisturizer that is oil free to prevent clogged pores.  Skip alcohol-ladden astringents before moisturizing as they may encourage already overactive oil glands to step up production.

Protect: Don’t skip sunscreen!  Many people with oily skin skip sun protection fearing that the oil they contain will trigger breakouts.  Oil-free sunscreens are a perfect solution, as they will protect your skin without adding extra shine.

  1. Thanks! My skin is super oily in summer and I’m very fair/sensitive so I agree with your advice regarding mild products. What about oil-control products? Which do you recommend?

    • Best anti aging cream?I’m loonikg for a good anti aging night cream. I don’t really have that many fine lines but I want to use something early to prevent more lines and wrinkles. I have oily skin that is prone to acne so if there is something that can help with that too that would be great. I have been loonikg and the two treatments that have caught my eye are Olay Regenerist and Avon Anew Reversalist. I was just wondering which one is better for me (and overall).

      • Hi Juls. It sounds like you would love the Perricone MD Concentrated Restorative Treatment formulated with Vitamin C Ester, Glycolic and DMAE. It’s excellent for oily/acne prone skin and helps to erase surface lines right away.
