Choosing an Oily Skin Cleanser
People with oily skin have a tendency to think more is better when it comes to cleansing, but that can dry out the skin's surface — and over-cleaning has no effect on oil production. Choose the right products, however, and you can keep skin clean without harsh effects or repeated trips to the sink:
Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash. Both Dr. Cook-Bolden and Dr. Nichols offer this pick for a basic and effective oily skin cleanser that will not break the bank. This is a tried-and-true salicylic acid cleanser for oily and acne-prone patients, say the doctors. Limit use to once a day to avoid over-drying skin. You can pick up a bottle of the oily skin cleanser at your local drugstore for about $ 6. Since you should wash your face twice daily, use a mild cleanser during your second wash of the day.
Choosing an Oily Skin Lotion
After cleansing, you need to protect your skin and keep it comfortable. Our dermatologists like the following products:
Cosmedicine Medi-Matte oil control lotion with SPF 20. Nichols recommends this light moisturizer with sunscreen for oily skin because most oily patients complain that many SPF moisturizers are too greasy. You can get it at Sephora cosmetic stores, or through Web sites that sell beauty products, for about $ 45. It's on the pricey side, but Nichols says that it's «great for people with oily and shine-prone skin.»
Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3. This light lotion clears pores of debris and leaves your skin feeling refreshed, not stripped, say both doctors. A 13-ounce bottle costs about $ 20 at Clinique counters at department stores or online.
Dermalogica Skin Renewal Booster. Use this hydroxy acid complex to get rid of excess oil, reduce shine, and help to keep skin clear of acne. It's best to use it at night to exfoliate rough, acne-affected skin, say the doctors. Find it at specialty beauty stores and salons for around $ 45.
Cosmetics for Oily Skin
The wrong foundation will feel like it's sliding right off your face, but the right product will help counteract oil's effects and give you a flawless finish.
