RECOMMENDED SKIN-CARE REGIMEN FOR EVERY SKIN TYPE
Do you see large pores when you look in the mirror? Do you have shine on your face most times of day regardless of the weather–not just on your T-zone, but on your cheeks too? These are common issues for oily skin types.
Step 1: Cleanse
Cleansers that are gel-based and lather well are the best cleansers to remove oil and debris in the pores. Try: SKIN-Ann Webb Spearmint Tea (oily skin cleanser)
Step 2: Tone
All skin types
Everyone can benefit from adding a toner into their daily routine. Some cleansers are on the acidic side, which is more in line with our skin’s natural pH. A toner applied with a cotton round after cleansing can rebalance our skin back to the desired 5.0-5.5 pH, which fights bacteria and premature aging.
Try: SKIN- Ann Webb Rooibos tea (glycolic clarifying toner)
Step 3: Moisturize
A common misconception is that oily skin does not need moisturizer. Wrong! Be sure to pick a lightweight moisturizer that won’t clog your pores, stay away from mineral oil, and choose bases containing tamanu oil or grapeseed oil.
Try: Rosehip Seed oil
Bonus- SKIN- Ann Webb Brilliant Peptide(restorative eye complex)
Step 4: Exfoliate
All skin type
Don’t skip exfoliation! Scrubs are a wonderful physical exfoliant and can be done 2-3 times a week. Be careful of overdoing a chemical exfoliant, as it can dry out the skin and cause peeling and dehydration.
Try: SKIN- Ann Webb Lavender Silk powder scrub
Step 5: Protect
All skin types
You also need sun protection. If you have oily skin you’ll want to go with a lighter SPF. Generally the higher the SPF, the heavier the sunscreen feels and the more likely it is to clog.
Try: SKIN- Ann Webb Pomegranate daytime protection moisturizer

Comments and tips from *EAT BEAUTIFUL WENDY ROWE*
If you have oily skin, it’s good in a way because the oilier the skin, the fewer lines you’ll get. On the other hand, if your body produces oil, it can make you prone to getting pimples.
*Apply a clay mask once a week – this draws quite a lot of the sebum (oil) and toxins out of the skin.
*Use a mattifying moisturizer to help reduce shine.
*Don’t overload with creams.
*Don’t wear makeup all the time.
*Try using an oil-control foundation.
*Find a good routine for yourself; a foaming cleanser may be better than an oil cleanser, for instance.
*Try to do a scrub once a week, as you might find you have a build-up of dead skin which can lead to the overproduction of sebum.
*Eat tomatoes as they are good for the targeting excess sebum production.
*Avoid eating deep-fried food.
*Make sure you exercise – sweating is great for clearing the pores.
