Oily skin is something we all have struggled with at one point or another. Personally, I struggle with it all year round but it get’s even worse during the summer!

Along the way, I've picked up some amazing tips, tricks & products. And here is how I battle my oily skin...

1. You must gain an understanding:

As a teenager or young adult, you get acne and to help get rid of it some will  use an acne cleanser that strips your skin of its essential oils and nutrients. Oily skin is usually caused by the fact that our skin is dry and when it’s dry it produces oil to moisturize itself but the oils can become excessive and that’s why our faces appear oily.

2. A great nightly skin routine.

 Start with a great cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its essential oils and nutrients but will prevent and get rid of the acne on our faces …

I love the pHisoderm pH Clinical For Blemish-prone Skin.


This product is absolutely amazing. The soft soap turns into a bubbly cleanser that melts into your skin and leaves you feeling refreshed and not dry! Rather than just targetting the acne, this cleanser balances your pH level which is another leaing reason as to why we get acne.

 Then, once there isn't any more excess oil apply a light scrub to your face and massage it into your skin. This will get rid of any dead skin cells and help your face to feel even better. You should scrub about twice a week as there is always new layers of skin being formed and the dead skin has no where to go. 

My favourite one is...

It's not too rough on the skin and leaves my face feeling soft as ever!

Lastly, Finish with a lightweight, gel moistueizer that won't clog your pores. Here's my holy grail:


If ever you have too much oil for comfort, get rid of it ASAP otherwise it will begin to collect bacteria and dirt. Also, it will clog your pores and create more pimples!
