Oily skin is a common skin type characterised by an overproduction of sebum, the skin's natural oil. People with oily skin often experience a shiny or greasy appearance and enlarged pores and are more prone to acne breakouts. While oily skin can be frustrating, a proper skincare routine tailored to its specific needs can help manage oiliness and promote a healthier complexion.
The Right Skincare Routine for Oily Skin
Skincare for oily skin involves a few key steps.
- Firstly, gentle cleansing is crucial to remove excess oil, dirt, and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural moisture.
- Look for oil-free or gel-based cleansers that effectively cleanse the skin without adding additional oils.
- Exfoliation is another crucial step to unclog pores and remove dead skin cells.
- Opt for chemical exfoliants like salicylic acid or glycolic acid, as they can penetrate the pores and regulate oil production.
Choosing the right skincare products for oily skin is essential. Lightweight, oil-free moisturisers can provide hydration without adding extra shine. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid or niacinamide, which can help balance oil production and maintain a matte finish. Regarding sunscreen, opt for oil-free or non-comedogenic formulas to protect your skin from harmful UV rays without clogging your pores.
A skincare routine for oily skin can be achieved using a combination of effective products specifically formulated for oily and acne-prone skin. Tea Tree & Kaffir Lime products, known for their anti-acne properties and oil-controlling abilities, can be incorporated into a daily skincare routine to help manage oiliness and prevent breakouts.

Monsoon Skin Care for Oily Skin
Managing oily skin during the monsoon season can be particularly challenging due to increased humidity. Adjusting your skincare routine during this time is important to prevent excessive oiliness and breakouts. Incorporating oil-control products, such as mattifying primers or blotting papers, can help combat excess shine. Additionally, a gentle toner containing ingredients like witch hazel or tea tree oil can help control oil production and minimise pore congestion.
