For OILY SKIN

Hair - - Skin Care -

Avoid creamy or emol­lient prod­ucts, whether it’s min­eral oil, shea but­ter, es­sen­tial oils or petro­la­tum (bet­ter known as petroleum jelly). Al­ways look for prod­ucts la­belled ‘non-come­do­genic’, as th­ese will not clog your pores. Cleanser: Use a foam­ing cleanser with a stronger de­ter­gent, such as sodium tride­ceth or lau­ryl sul­phate, to wash off ex­cess oil. Sun­screen: While day mois­turis­ers can be avoided, daily pro­tec­tion with sun­screen is manda­tory. Choose a broad-spec­trum sun­screen with an SPF of at least 30, that’s oil-free and non­come­do­genic. Night mois­turiser: Opt for night time mois­turis­ers which are wa­ter-based lo­tions or gels with in­gre­di­ents like gly­colic or sal­i­cylic acid. Prod­ucts con­tain­ing sil­i­cone-based emol­lients like dime­thicone usu­ally do not clog pores as they do not have the acne-ex­ac­er­bat­ing ef­fects of heavy oils, so th­ese can also be used.
