4 Easy Ways to Treat Oily Skin

4 Easy Ways to Treat Oily Skin

Skin types run along a spectrum. Very few men fall in the dead center - that coveted category of perfect, normal, not too dry, not too oily skin. So you’re most likely somewhere in-between.

If you consistently notice that you have an oily T-zone - your forehead and down your bridge to your nose - you probably have oily skin. Guys with this skin type have a lot of greasy buildup on their skin by the end of the day. And they tend to have a slick, shiny complexion.

There are positive aspects to having oil skin. All the oil your skin produces acts as a natural anti-aging treatment. It keeps your skin moisturized and helps slow the onset of wrinkles and fine lines. Plus, having plenty of natural skin oil helps limit the pollutants and bacteria that can get into your pores and cause blemishes.

So before you start treating your oily skin, make sure you’re approaching it in the right way. You don’t need to overreact and constantly scrub at your skin with harsh products. That would be entirely counterproductive. Harsh detergents, alcohol, and other strong ingredients remove too much oil, dry out your skin, and can ultimately lead to even more oil production. Bad news.

The best way to treat your oily skin is with a smart skincare routine. Here are a few easy tips that will help you look your best.

1 - Use Face Wash Designed for Oily Skin

Not all face wash is created equal. The best face wash for men with oily skin is gentle, removes excess oil, and leaves your skin with the moisture it needs to stay healthy. Our Clarifying Gel Face Wash is made with coconut-based cleansers, geranium, and aloe.

For the best results, wash your face twice each day - once in the morning and once in the evening before bed. Avoid washing too often or rubbing your skin aggressively - just let the ingredients do their work.

2 - Exfoliate Every Other Day

After washing your face, follow up every other day with face scrub for men. This exfoliates your skin to remove dead skin cells, dig oily buildup out of the pores, and leave you with a naturally brilliant complexion. Our Renewing Face Scrub is made with jojoba beads, pumice, aloe vera, avocado butter, coffee extract, and green tea.

3 - Reduce Oil with Skin Toner

The best skin toner for men neutralizes oil and balances your skin’s pH. While some toners are made with alcohol, that’s not the best choice for your skin.

Our Balancing Toner is made with witch hazel and cucumber. It removes dirt and oil from pores that may have been left behind after washing your face. And it leaves you with a matte appearance to prevent the greasy shine that is common in guys with oily skin.

4 - Finish Your Routine with a Lightweight Moisturizer

Guys with oily skin should still moisturize twice daily - each morning and evening. But you have to choose a product that won’t clog your pores, sit on your skin, and eventually lead to an even greasier appearance.

Instead, go with a lightweight face moisturizer for men that absorbs quickly. An oil-free formula is best if you have oily skin. Our Daily Essential Face Moisturizer is made with aloe vera, jojoba, hyaluronic acid, and green tea.
