Emma’s Picks for Oily Skin

0

Oily skin can be troublesome, especially for many young people. A small consolation may be that oily skin is said to prevent some of the wrinkles that come with age. Oily skin is characterized by a shiny T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) and for instance enlarged pores and pimples.

Cleansing-fet-hyBe extra thorough with your cleansing routine and use a en pre-cleanser to remove all traces of makeup.

Cleansing-fet-hy-wash

Foaming Cleansing facial wash.

Cleansing-fet-hy-toner

A facial toner helps to balance your skin.

Cleansing. Be extra thorough with your cleansing routine if you have oily skin. Cleanse your face both in the morning and the evening, but avoid using products that risk drying out the skin. If the skin is deprived of its natural oils the sebaceous glands will react by producing even more sebum! Instead, choose products that leave the skin clean and fresh at the same time as they soothe, balance and add moisture.

EmmaS-Hydration-fet-hy-moisturiser

Lightweight day cream with Vitamin E.EmmaS-Hydration-fet-hy-eye-gelRehydrating eye gel.

EmmaS-Hydration-fet-hy-serum

Lightweight serum.

MoisturisingChoose a moisturiser that fits your skin, preferably one that will add lot of moisture. Oily skin does not need a rich cream, instead opt for lighter day and night creams that can add a lot of moisture and that quickly can be absorbed by your skin. If you have very oily skin, you can try to only use a moisturising serum and skip the cream altogether.

EmmaS-Treatment-fet-hy

Remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.

TreatmentUse a gentle enzyme peeling once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells, dissolve blackheads and prevent new breakouts. Enzyme peel is an exfoliating mask, without scrubbing beans, that contains AHA- and BHA-acids (salicylic acid) that have a deep cleansing effect and that will keep your skin fresh and luminous. Avoid using exfoliating products containing mechanical scrubbing beans in your face since they may damage your skin.


My cleansing routine

Cleansing is the key to keep my skin glowing. I have combination skin, and it immediately shows on my skin if I have been careless with my cleansing. This is what my daily routine looks like:

1. Wash. I always cleanse my face in the morning. Either with a foaming facial soap or by wiping it clean with a facial toner. This removes whatever is left of the night cream and refreshes my skin.

2. Remove. In the evening, I start by removing all makeup using one or two makeup removers (depending on what mascara I’ve used). I like using cotton pads to make sure I remove everything. After all makeup is gone, I finish with a toner or a foaming soap.

3. Peel. At least once a week I do an enzyme exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, prevent blemishes and give the skin extra glow.

My best tip to battle dry winter skin

… is to adjust your skincare routine after the season and to apply your moisturiser more often and more liberally. We are so good at always applying hand cream to keep our hands soft, and you simply have to treat the skin in your face the same way. Try applying your moisturiser more liberally and you will see a difference.


Why should I use a Cleansing oil?

Cleansing your skin with oil is still quite new and may feel strange to those who haven’t tried it yet. A lot of people believe that oils will make their skin go shiny, when in fact it’s a great way to both moisturise and nourish the skin, as well as giving it a beautiful glow.

How to use a Cleansing oilApply 1-3 pumps to dry skin and gently massage until your makeup is dissolved. When you rinse off with lukewarm water, the oil will transform into a milky formula. Your skin will feel soft and refreshed, without a greasy feeling.

Cleansing oil is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
