Cleaning Your Face The Morning Hours?

Step 1: Start with the cleanserBest Skin Care Routine For Oily Skin

Cleansing cleans the skin from dirt and excess oils. Over the night, excess oil and dust would have been built in the skin.

These can clog the pores, and have to be removed gently. You need to work on this if you want to flaunt a blemish free skin.

Step 2: Exfoliate the skin

Exfoliating the skin at least twice a week prevents clogged pores and rough skin.

This can also prevent the appearance of dull skin and fine lines. A gentle exfoliant is what you need.

AHAs and BHAs are the best options if you are looking forward to flaunting a radiant skin. Lightening of dark spots can be done by the physical exfoliants.

Step 3: Toners

Toners are vital for both oily and dry skin. They keep the skin clean and remove any residues off the screen. They minimize the pores and prepare the skin for the next set of the makeover.

They are also essential to maintain the moisture of the skin. They are known for refining, brightening, and soothing the skin.

  • Targeted Treatment

This part of the routine is highly specific. You can choose the products to suit your requirements. You can decide to tackle the fine lines or decide to work on improving the skin tone.

In any of the case, it is recommended to stick to watery products that can be absorbed by the skin with ease.

  • Moisturizers

Choose moisturizers that are light in weight. Heavy moisturizers can be absorbed into the skin and make it look even more oily. You should also consider a good eye cream to keep the area around the eyes moisturized.

  •  Use a sunscreen

This is the crucial step of the morning routine. Apply sunscreen to protect the skin from UV rays, and it also keeps off premature aging. Ensure your sunscreen application is liberal.

If you think your foundation or BB cream has sunscreen and you can stick to them, drop the idea. You need more protection, like half a spoon of sunscreen for your face. Your BB cream or the foundation cannot supply this.

Step 1: Cleanser

It is mandatory to use cleanser only when you wear makeup. It has multifold benefits for oily skin, and use a cleanser in the evenings too.

If you wear makeup, use an oil-based cleanser, and follow with the water-based cleanser to keep the skin free from dirt and excess oils. Follow the ritual with toner and exfoliant. Exfoliate the skin 3 times a week.

Step 2: Sheet Masks

Sheet masks are loaded with serums, vitamins, and minerals. You can find them for different tasks. There are sheet masks for anti-aging, purifying, skin tightening, skin lightening, and brightening.

You can find the sheet masks for any skin needs. There are also sheet masks for skin types. Don’t worry if they would do good for your skin.

They are fabric cut and soaked in serums for various applications. You can use sheet masks in a week for once or twice. They are mini facial routine for your skin.

Step 3: Targeted Treatment

When you are concentrating on specific treatment for your skin, apply the serums on your skin at night. This is the perfect way to get the desired results. If you are using sheet masks, this treatment can be skipped on that specific day or night.

Step 4: Moisturizer

Moisturize your skin to ensure the skin stays hydrated. This is one thing you never want to miss when it comes to facial care.

When you are all set for the morning and evening routines, it can be quite a puzzling activity to find the best products for your skin so I did the work and found the best oily skin care products that will give you results in no time and are affordable.

Conclusion On The Best Skin Care Routine For Oily Skin

Now Doing all this is great, but if you can have a microdermabrasion face clean at least once a month. Microdermabrasion removes all dirt and unclogs pores much better than manual cleaning. I mentioned how microdermabrasion works in this earlier post.

Oily skin doesn’t mean you can’t look gorgeous, but nailing the right skin care products is all you need. Do not lay your hands on the cheap and random products as they can worsen and damage your skin. Many women avoid putting moisturizers as they think it will make their skin more oily.

On the contrary, it will promote your skin to produce more oil to compensate for the dryness. Follow the skincare routine, take care of your diet, sleep enough, drink enough water and be happy to see that your oily skin woes are alleviated.

    I guess I needed to head on to step 2 and 3 as I’m currently only using a cleanser. My skin is oily and I even made it a habit to cleanse my face 3 times a day but it somehow is still oily which is mind-boggling. Toner, that’s what I need to get into! Thanks for this, I really need to give it a go but out of curiosity, isn’t toners made of oils as well?

    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      Thanks, Riaz, it`s rare that men take such good steps to groom or should I say they just forget to mention it? Facial cleansing is supposed to be for men too and there are enough skin care products for men in the market.

      You asked if toners are made of oil, there are water-based toners you can buy if you prefer not to use oil based toners.

      Once more, thanks for stopping by.

  2. This is a great routine you have established here. I really like the targeted treatment, I always remark that my skin gets better when I take extra care of it at night, the results are way better. So, I will apply it at night.

    But I do not think I need a moisturizer at night if I am doing a targeted treatment at night. I prefer to use it without a moisturizer. That is fine, right?


    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      Hello Adyn

      People do skin care in different ways and if you prefer not to use a moisturizer at night, that`s fine but, I`d still use a night cream

  3. My girlfriend has very oily skin all the time and she made me go online and find her a way to counter that… 😛

    I will send her this article over to take a look at as it seems that you know your way around facial skin care (I can only guess).

    Boy, you girls have to go through a lot of trouble for maintaining healthy skin. Guys would benefit from such practices as well, it’s just we don’t really care 😛

    Thank you for your tips and advice!

    • The Beauty Doctors says:


      there are enough skin care products for men out there too, and men too do want a healthy looking skin.Glad you found the post useful.

  4. I appreciate your detailed skin care routine. The step by step process both for day and night time routine can really improve the skin’s tone and texture. I also agree that oil based cleansers work best in removing make up as it does not tug the skin too much. However, I am not aware that it should be followed by water based cleanser.I’m gonna try it to ensure a make up free skin.

     As for moisturizer, I never skip a day or night without it because now that I’m nearly hitting the 40’s, I do really want to prevent heavy lines and wrinkles. I used to have one deep line in between my brows a few years ago, thanks to moisturizers, it gradually faded. I wish to try out Missah serum because I’ve been hearing a lot if great reviews about it. 

    Also, putting face masks 20-30 minutes before getting your glam make up is good for prepping the skin for a nice canvass. Whenever I do this, my make up stays oil free and glowy. It keeps the skin firm even for long hours of wearing a makeup. Thanks so much for the tips, I’m really gonna try it!

  5. I totally agree, as we get older, the skin needs more care to make it appear the way we want it to.
    thankfully there are brilliant products out there that slow down signs of aging.
