Here’s the perfect AFFORDABLE SKINCARE ROUTINE | Oily Skincare Routine Product Recommendations
If you wake up every morning with a greasy shiny face and find your face getting oily every few hours no matter how often you wash it then like me, you have oily skin. So here are our picks for a complete skincare routine for you with every product under Rs.
500! Before you start, a good thing to remember is to always look for products with really light, gel or water based formulas so that they don’t clog your pores or overload your skin with even more oils.
For your cleanser we love Cetaphil’s oily skin facewash which deeply cleanses your skin without drying it out. It’s a clear gel wash that’s soap free which means that it doesn’t lather as much as you would expect it to but still cleans off dirt and oil properly and fights acne too.
It’s also non comedogenic which means it won’t clog your pores at all! When you’re looking for a toner always keep an eye out for one that’s alcohol free like this Fabindia Tea Tree Toner. It has salicylic acid which is amazing for fighting the acne that tends to come along with oily skin.
It also helps control excess sebum while also shrinking your pores and refreshing the skin. The worst thing a moisturiser can do is add another greasy layer to your already oily skin. So a good one to try is an oil free formula like Mama Earth Apple Cider Vinegar Oil Free moisturiser.
If you don’t already know – we LOVE apple cider vinegar especially for oily or acne prone skin. This lightweight cream absorbs into your skin super quickly and doesn’t have all the ingredients we want to avoid like parabens and sulphates.
Personally I’ve always hated sunscreens because they make my skin extra sticky and leave a gross white cast that ends up looking grey. So I started using mattifying gel based sunscreens like the Loreal’s UV perfect matte one.
It has a 50 SPF UVA protection, is non comedogenic so it won’t break you out and absorbs extra oils so your face stays shine free all day. Now that your daily routine is out of the way, all that’s missing is one extra product for some extra weekly pampering.
Try this Plum Green Tea Face mask that has kaolin clay, bentonite clay and green tea extracts – which are all amazing for oily skin because it absorbs oil from your pores and leaves you with a glow! We hope this list helps you navigate all the millions of products out there to help you find the perfect ones for your skin type.
Until next time stay tuned and stay Glamrs.
