Oily Skin Routine for Men

How to Get Rid of Oily Skin

Many men have overactive sebaceous glands which cause their skin to look oily. But no man wants to look sloppy and unprofessional, showing up to a work meeting with a shiny face or to a date with enlarged pores or pimples. Not to fear: one simple addition to your daily skincare arsenal will get your oily skin under control. This matte finish moisturiser formulated just for men absorbs all of that annoying oil and delivers quick, long-lasting effects.

Why your skin is shiny

Your skin’s sebaceous glands secrete an oily substance called sebum. Sebum lubricates and helps maintain skin hydration, suppleness and balance, while also protecting it from the outside environment. But too much sebum can cause a variety of skin problems: enlarged and/or clogged pores, imperfections and, yes, oily shine.

Best formulations for oily skin

Heavy creams are too rich for oily skin. Your skin won’t be able to absorb the cream, so it will just sit on the skin’s surface, blocking pores. Men with oily skin need a fast-absorbing, light-weight formula that soak up excess oil and leaves skin shine free.

Look for targeted natural and biotechnological ingredients

Formulas with the right percentage of targeted active ingredients and a light texture penetrate skin more effectively and are less likely to block pores. Ingredients like Fomes Officinalis, Hazel Tree oil and Panax Ginseng reduce sebum production, moisturize and mattify. If used after every cleansing, a good moisturiser will become your skin’s best friend.

Simple 3-Step Routine

For men with oily skin, a twice-a-day skincare regime is a must - cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise.

Remember: hydrated skin is healthy skin. Moisturising morning and night will ensure your skin has enough moisture, preventing it from producing more sebum.
