SKINCARE FOR OILY SKIN
SkinCeuticals advanced skincare for oily skin helps minimize shine while decongesting and improving the appearance of pores. Specially-formulated products for oily skin can also help prevent future breakouts while addressing additional skin concerns.
Simply put, oily skin produces excess sebum. Too much of this natural oil can lead to unwanted shine, and visible as well as clogged pores that play a role in the development of blemishes. Specially-formulated skincare for oily skin can help absorb excess oil to minimize shine, decongest pores and reduce their visibility. However, there are benefits to having oily skin. Those with this skin type tend to have thicker skin and fewer wrinkles.1
Oily skin can be caused by genetics, hormonal fluctuations, and stress.1 All of these factors can stimulate the oil glands, prompting them to produce excess sebum that leads to the appearance of skin oiliness. Properly formulated products for oily skin can help remove or absorb excess oil. Skincare for oily skin (including cleansers, toners, serums, and moisturizers) can also help minimize the appearance of pores and prevent them from becoming clogged.
All skin types—including oily skin—require extra moisture to maintain optimal hydration levels. When choosing a moisturizer for oily skin, it’s best to look for oil-free, non-comedogenic formulas (which means they won’t clog pores). Lightweight serums can be effective hydrating products for oily skin, and your daily sunscreen can be a source of moisture as well. Specially formulated sunscreens such as our Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50 can help provide essential daily sun protection while minimizing skin oiliness and leaving skin with a soft, long-lasting, shine-free finish.
WHAT ARE THE BEST SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR OILY SKIN ?
The best skincare for oily skin types is specially formulated for this particular skin type. Your cleanser should be designed to gently exfoliate and remove excess oil without stripping the skin or leaving it feeling tight or dry. (Our Purifying Cleanser and LHA Cleanser are ideal for oily skin). Toners are especially beneficial products for oily skin, and our Conditioning Toner features a complex of alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids to help decongest pores and remove excess sebum before you apply other skincare for oily skin. Targeted serums, such as our Hydrating B5 Gel, Phyto Corrective Gel, and Phyto+ can be used as moisturizing products for oily skin, and any formulations you use should be oil-free and non-comedogenic. A vitamin C serum can also provide advanced environmental protection while targeting excess oiliness – Silymarin CF reduces excess oil oxidation by up to 76%. A moisturizer for oily skin (such as our Daily Moisture) can help improve the appearance of visible pores and reduce the look of skin oiliness. Finally, an advanced sunscreen like our Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50 can act as a skin mattifier and oil-absorbing makeup primer in addition to providing broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

Your routine should also include a daily antioxidant serum for oily skin, sunscreen, and an occasional clarifying mask designed to minimize skin oiliness.
CAN OILY SKIN CAUSE ACNE?
Skin oiliness can play a role in the development of acne, especially when the pores become clogged with excess sebum. Using specially-formulated skincare for oily skin can help minimize oil and exfoliate dead skin cells to prevent clogged pores that contribute to blemishes.
CAN OILY SKIN BE DEHYDRATED?
All types of skin can become dehydrated, and using harsh products to reduce skin oiliness can deplete the skin of its natural moisture. Using gentle yet effective skincare for oily skin, including a daily moisturizer for oily skin, can help maintain skin hydration without clogging the pores or leaving skin with a greasy, shiny finish.
WILL OILY SKIN PREVENT WRINKLES?
The moisturizing properties of the skin’s natural oils may delay the development of fine lines and wrinkles, however increased skin oiliness does not protect against other visible signs of aging like dark spots and discoloration. If you’re concerned about wrinkles and skin oiliness, consider a serum for oily skin that addresses both of these concerns (such as our Blemish + Age Defense).
