Skin Care for Oily Skin
Keeping your oily skin healthy, happy, and shine-free can feel like a full time job. Those with oil-prone skin can struggle to find skin care products that effectively control oil and shine without stripping skin, leaving it feeling tight, thirsty, and uncomfortable. Our product development team understands your skin care struggles! And we’ve created a lineup of the best skin care products for oily skin to help keep excess oil and shine at bay without over-drying your skin.
Below we’ve put together some of our best products for oily skin, which gently and effectively nourish and nurture your skin. We’ve got oily skin care must-haves down to a science!
Step One: Cleansing
Best Face Wash for Oily Skin:
Oily skin has met its match in our gentle, but effective clarifying cleanser. This foaming gel cleanser reveals a cleaner, smoother complexion with a niacinamide-infused formula that helps to not only prevent clogged pores, but also strengthen your skin, maintaining an ideal moisture level while purging dirt, oil, makeup, and impurities. We call it SuperClarify for a reason!
Why we love it: Lavender oil soothes the skin while niacinamide (aka Vitamin B3) tones and clarifies without over drying.
Step Two: Toning
Best Toner for Oily Skin:
Toner is one of the most important – and most overused – products in oily skin care. Our recommendation is to tone regularly, using a small amount of product. Simply add a dime-sized portion of SuperTone to a cotton round, and gently swipe over your skin. That’s it!
Why we love it: SuperTone toner is an ideal choice for most skin care types, including normal, dry, combination, and oily skin.
Step Three: Skin Booster Drops
Best Skin Booster for Oily Skin:
Clarifying Booster Drops
Infused with skin clarifying tea tree oil and witch hazel, these lightweight drops can be gently massaged into skin on their own, or added to your moisturizer as a “supercharger” of sorts!
Why we love it: Our clarifying skin booster drops serve double duty as an important element of your everyday oily skin care regimen, as well as a powerful spot treatment for blemishes.
Step Four: Moisturizing (Day)
Best Moisturizer for Oily Skin:
elf+ Mattifying Lotion
When a flawlessly matte complexion is a must, there is no denying the power of our mattifying lotion for oily skin! Infused with kaolin clay, this whipped lotion absorbs oil on contact. If oil had an archenemy, this moisturizer would be it!
Why we love it: Kaolin clay naturally controls excess oil and shine while tea tree oil works its clarifying magic on your skin.
Step Four: Moisturizing (Night)
Best Night Cream for Oily Skin:
Nourishing Night Cream
Our skin stands up to a lot of aggressors during the day, and takes advantage of the nighttime hours to repair, recover, and ready itself for a new day ahead. It is our job to give our skin the care it needs before letting our heads hit the pillow, including cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Ideal for most skin types, our Nourishing Night Cream delivers a jojoba, aloe, cucumber, and shea butter-infused formula that softens and promotes skin health while you drift off to dreamland.
Why we love it: Infused with skin loving ingredients jojoba, aloe, cucumber, and shea butter to help nourish the skin.
