Let's start at the beginning: What does oily skin look like?
We see enlarged pores, some shine and, from time to time, the odd pimple. No one has ever said: "lucky me, I have a pimple".
However, it's not all bad in these skins: it's smoother, and over the years it will be more grateful. The question is: how to care for and treat it?
In the morning:
Cleanse: Cleansing bar by Gallinée. This step is key. It sounds cliché, but it is more true for these skins than for others. It removes impurities and prepares the skin for the products that follow. Cleanse morning and night.
Treat: All becomes clear serum by Pai Skincare. It reduces sebum production with its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties while hydrating and improving skin tone.
Moisturise: Créme Hydratante Anti-Pollution by Quinque. A soothing and balancing organic cream, it provides hydration without being heavy, with a very soothing natural scent.
Cleanse: Cleansing bar, by Gallinée. If you have applied make-up, we recommend first using Micellar cleansing water by Bioeffect, a micellar water to remove traces of make-up, and then use the soap to complete a deeper cleanse.
Toning: Skin Perfector Toner by Naked Lab. This illuminating toner performs a gentle exfoliation with salicylic acid. It contains niacinamide, which tightens pores and evens the tone.
Moisturise: Purify& Brighten Moisture Lotion by GlowHub. At night, leave skin with controlled but necessary hydration. This gel-textured moisturiser absorbs in seconds, leaving skin velvety smooth and luminous.
Mask: Rosto purifying face mask, by Benamor. Purifies and balances excess oil, leaving skin fresh and soothed. Once or twice a week.
