The Best Routine For Oily Skin

Say goodbye to excess oil

Tired of feeling like an oil slick by the afternoon? We’ve got you covered with our top tips to combat oily skin. Some of our choices might surprise you. Keep reading to find out what they are.

Cleanser

Simply put — when you have oilier skin, you have more oil on your skin. But, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Most people suggest going in with harsh cleansers loaded with rough surfactants that get rid of every. single. oil. But, that squeaky clean feeling can actually damage your skin instead as it strips the skin of its natural barrier which can lead to an increase in oil production, redness, irritation, and even acne. Don’t get stuck in this vicious cycle — skip out on the harsh cleansers and instead reach for ones that deep clean without damaging your skin. It’s also important to remember that oil is still good for the skin as it keeps it hydrated, soft, and supple so you don’t want to get rid of everything but rather create a healthy, shine-free balance.

TREAT IT WITH:

Our nourishing Rice Cleansing Sorbet will get rid of every trace of makeup, oil, and other impurities — without stripping your skin. This means you’ll be left with super clean, soft, and supple skin that hasn’t been damaged by harsh cleansers. Follow up with a water-based cleanser for super oily skin types but be sure to grab something that is low pH and SLS free.

Toner

Nothing is better than a refreshing toner that infuses the skin with a dose of hydration. Toners, in general, exist to help balance and reset the skin post-cleanse. No matter the cleanser, your skin’s pH is disturbed every single time you wash your face so you need a gentle, balancing toner to restore your skin’s homeostasis.

Oilier skin types should reach for toners that purify the skin while giving it that extra boost of soothing hydration. Hydration is amazing and a must for your skin type but it’s integral to have a clarifying aspect to fight skin texture and prevent acne-causing bacteria.

TREAT IT WITH:

The Bitter Green Essence Toner is an oily skin savior. It’s jam-packed with a potent 33 green vegetable complex including Matcha Green Tea, Artichoke, Centella Asiatica, and Broccoli to hydrate and purify your skin helping to smooth unwanted texture and protect it from dehydration. It provides a soothing boost of hydration that won’t irritate your skin.

Serum

Serums are a very personal aspect of your routine that helps to combat your skin’s needs. We suggest that you take a moment to evaluate your skin to determine what your goals are and what you would like to achieve. Once you have determined your particular skin needs, the serum step is the perfect one to combat them.

Oilier skin types tend to deal with excess skin texture and blemishes. Rather than combating them with harsh chemicals, we suggest using a serum that will hydrate and soothe while combating acne. You want something that is on the gentler side so as to avoid damaging your skin and creating avoidable skin issues.

TREAT IT WITH:

The Bell Pepper Serum is a triple threat that hydrates, soothes, and gently brightens the skin. It contains pure vitamin C to fight hyperpigmentation and acne scars, ceramides to reinforce your skin barrier and keep oil in check, and Centella Asiatica to fight acne-causing bacteria and calm redness and irritation. It’s a must in your routine to provide a gentle dose of detoxification for smooth, clear, and glowing [not oily] skin!

Moisturizer

Lightweight layers are key to happy skin! Seriously, if there’s one thing you can take away it’s that you want to keep your hydration lightweight to avoid suffocating oilier skin. This doesn’t mean you should keep moisturizing altogether but rather choose formulas that provide ample amounts of moisture without weighing skin down. Hydration is essential to the health of your skin so don’t try to skip this step!

TREAT IT WITH:

The Salmon Cream is a luxe incredibly rich formula that will deeply nourish the skin without leaving a greasy finish. It might look too creamy but in reality, this moisturizer is super lightweight and absorbs into the skin like a dream. It’s loaded with salmon caviar extract to fight fine lines and wrinkles, adenosine to boost elasticity, and youth-boosting peptides to promote collagen production. One of our favorite additions is niacinamide aka vitamin B3, this superstar ingredient targets acne, minimizes the appearance of large pores and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Incredibly nourishing and perfect for oily skin? A win-win!

Green Tea

We’re what you would call matcha obsessed. So, when it came to time to formulate this green-powered toner we knew we had to include Green Tea. These fresh tea leaves are enriched with high doses of antioxidants and polyphenols including epigallocatechin gallate aka EGCG — an anti-inflammatory plant compound that protects the skin from UV-photo damage and premature aging. This is why antioxidants are a must-have in any routine!

Besides being an amazing anti-ager — Green Tea is also well-known for it’s antibacterial and astringent properties. This is thanks to another compound called tannins which reduce sebum/oil production further combating acne and skin texture. This is just one of the many green ingredients we including to smooth skin texture and balance the skin. 

Artichoke

Artichoke is chock full of antioxidants and peptides which improve skin texture, combat fine lines and wrinkles, and visibly reduces the appearance of large pores for a soft, radiant glow. This nourishing vegetable is rich in natural vitamin C to boost collagen production and revive dull skin and increase moisture retention. 

Centella Asiatica

We added a healthy dose of Centella Asiatica Water to the toner to soothe irritation and combat skin texture thanks to its ability to inhibit acne-causing bacteria. Centella Asiatica (aka “Cica”) is an ancient medicinal herb known for its powerful soothing properties that has been used in the East for thousands of years. It's jam-packed with antioxidants and soothing amino acids that improve the skin's barrier function increasing hydration levels and visibly calming redness and irritation. In fact, it's alternatively known as "tiger grass" because tigers used to roll around in it to soothe and repair their wounds.

Broccoli

Broccoli is a potent anti-inflammatory source of antioxidants including lutein, a carotenoid that works to protect your skin from oxidative damage. Environmental stressors like pollution and sun exposure encounter free radicals that can damage collagen leading to fine lines and wrinkles, sunspots, and sagging skin. Antioxidants like lutein work to combat that damage leaving you with firmer, more youthful skin. Broccoli is also rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to increase moisture retention and reinforce your skin barrier.

Aloe

Did you know that aloe is made up of 90% water? This incredibly anti-inflammatory ingredient was a necessary addition to the toner for its powerful soothing and healing properties. It’s also loaded with Vitamins A and B, folic acid, enzymes, proteins, amino acids, good fatty acids, and triglycerides to infuse the skin with an amazing dose of hydration leaving skin feeling plump with moisture.

Long Story Short

💚Greens are amazing additions to any skincare routine but especially those looking to soothe inflammation and combat acne-causing bacteria. We combined a powerful blend of 33 different greens to provide a maximum dose of antioxidant power to hydrate, balance, and detoxify your skin. Don’t believe us? Just give it a try.
