Skin Care Routine Ft. - Oily Skin

Hello, everyone!!!
Hope you are all doing good. The chilliness of winter is making me very lazy. But we shouldn't neglect our skin for whatever the reason is. For a healthy and glowing skin, one should follow proper skin care routine depending on skin type and climate. So for the beginners, the question is what are the basic steps we need to follow?? You can find the answer to the above question Here.

I am writing this post in collaboration with a fellow blogger and dear friend Neha from Dailydosesofbeauty2. Do follow her for more updates. She shares amazing tips, tricks and hacks along with great product reviews. And also do check her blog post if you have combination skin. She wrote a post on combination skin care routine.

Now, let's get into the detailed post. It is not necessary to use costly products in our skin care routine for better results. We can always select products not only by skin type and climate but also within our budget. Here I am going to share with you all my current skin care routine for oily skin.

1. Cleanser:

I am currently using Neutrogena's deep clean facial foaming cleanser for almost two months now and I absolutely love it. This facial foam is very effective in removing dirt and dead skin cells from the face and leaves a fresh, smooth skin after cleansing. Though they haven't mentioned anywhere about the skin type, it is doing a great job on my oily skin. For a detailed review on this cleanser, check HERE.
It retails for Rs.199/-. If you want to buy it, click: Here

2.Toner: For review purposes, I might use many products. But my all time favorite will be Rose water. I always use rose water as a toner. Rose water is very affordable and suitable for all skin types and it is very much effective too. It gives a fresh feeling to the face and also gives a visible glow.

3. Moisturizer:

I am currently using Neutrogena oil free moisturizer for oily skin. It is very light and moisturizes skin very well and it also controls the excess oil formation. This one also comes with SPF 15. So no need to use sunscreen if you are staying at home. It is fragrance-free and the package is very handy and cute. I am loving this product too.
It retails for Rs.399/- and you can check it Here

4. Sunscreen Lotion:

Sunscreen lotion is a must even in winters. As I am using a moisturizer with SPF, I don't apply sunscreen while staying at home. But when I am stepping out, I definitely use sunscreen. The one I am currently using is from Lotus Herbals. It's their Intensive Sunblock Spray with SPF 50. It is easy to use as it comes in a spray bottle and It is also sweat & waterproof. I love this sunscreen because it doesn't make my face patchy after applying.
It is suitable for all skin types.
It retails for Rs.345/-. Buy it Here

4. Scrub:

Exfoliation is a must for any skin type in any season. It makes our skin free from dead skin and gives smooth and glowing skin. The scrub I am currently obsessed with is again from Lotus Herbals. It's their Oatmeal and Yogurt skin whitening scrub in their WhiteGlow range. Check my complete review on this product Here.
It retails for Rs.195/- and you can buy it Here.

5. Body lotion:

I usually use products depending on skin type. But in winters, the weather will be very harsh and it will make the skin on hands and legs even more rough with breakouts. So, I have chosen this Nivea body lotion for dry skin with almond oil. It really works well and makes my skin on hands & legs very smooth without breakouts. All thanks to the Almond oil in it.
It retails for Rs.352/- and you can buy it Here.

6. Lip Balm:
I have tried so many lip balms until today and I love to collect them. So I cannot stress on one particular lip balm. But yes, Maybelline Baby lips variants are my favorites amongst all. For the lips to be healthy and shiny, exfoliating them is very important.
  • Apply Vaseline Petroleum jelly on your lips and take a small amount of sugar and gently rub it on your lips. This helps in removing dead skin from the lips.
  • Before going to bed, simply squeeze oil from Vitamin E capsule and apply on your lips. This will work as a moisturizer and helps in healing chapped lips.

I always keep Vitamin E capsules in stock at home. These can be used in hair, face masks and oils or even you can directly apply the oil squeezed from a capsule on lips and nails. These are very affordable and easily available at any medical store. I highly suggest all of you to keep them in your vanity.

And Now I am going to share with you all few DIY methods which I swear by. I trust these methods and they do wonders on my skin.

A)Face Mask:
  • Besan/ Chickpea flour - 2 tbsp
  • Honey- 1/2 tbsp
  • Milk - 1 tbsp
  • Wild Turmeric powder - pinch (optional)
  • Vitamin E capsule - 1
  • Rose water - As needed for the consistency ( don't make it too thick or too watery)
Mix all the ingredients and apply it evenly on face and neck. Leave it until it is completely dry and wash with cold water. Do this regularly to improve your skin tone, reduce blemishes and marks.

B) Aloe Vera:  I love to include aloe vera gel in my skin care routine. Aloe vera has many benefits for both skin and hair. I use Patanjali Aloe Vera gel and I really like this product.

This is my second tube and it is almost over. This clearly shows my love for this product. I have already shared few tips on how I use aloe vera gel in my daily routine in one of my previous posts. You can check here for the post. Click Here.

That's all for today's post. Do share with me if you have any DIY methods for oily skin. I would love to know. Thanks for visiting this space:)

  8. I was having an oily skin before and it was quite difficult to manage. Now I have combi skin and less acne prone :) I loved the face mask recipe and would try it soon

  9. Tretinoin has been dubbed as the golden standard in skin care. Aside from its rejuvinating properties, tretinoin can be used by pimple prone individuals as the medication works by trigerring the skin to gradually exfoliate.

  10. A homemade skin care mainly must consist of antioxidants, essential oils and vitamins. Only then will it nourish the skin.

  11. The very 1st step to preserve an oily skin is to keep your skin oil free; this can be easily done by regularly washing your face gently with a good face wash.dull face meaning

  12. You actually make it look so easy with your performance but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never comprehend. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it! Get rid blackheads
