Oily skin is one of the issues most of us deal with in our daily lives.
It is not just about how oily you look in pictures, but the struggle in trying to control it especially when the weather is humid.
Sweat and oil is not the best combination, we know that for sure.
All the countless blotting papers and makeup retouching because meltdown is definitely happening.
What causes oily skin?
There are numerous explanations for that like genetics, weather, age, hormones, lifestyle, and the products you use on your face.
Unfortunately, oily skin is not just oily skin. It has its own disadvantages that comes with it like being more susceptible to acne or some underlying health issues.
Breaking out is more likely when you do not know how to take care of the situation.
Korean beauty products are one of the go-tos when it comes to skincare. Some are overhyped but some really live up to the hype like this K-beauty brand, Dear Klairs.
Aside from their exceptional principles (eco-friendly, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free), they offer high-quality products that are suitable for all skin types but mostly suitable for sensitive skin.
The brand believes that “simple is enough”, making sure that all the ingredients on our products are essential for our skin.
This list contains some of Dear Klairs products that are most suitable for people who have oily skin.
Pore Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap
Activated charcoal-infused products are known to be helpful for people with oily skin because it can remove excess oil while giving your skin a deep cleaning that can unclog pores and get rid of dead skin cells.
Being a natural and gentle ingredient, this does not harm sensitive skin types but always do a spot test to make sure.
This product is also infused with pine oil and black sugar. Pine oil is known for its anti-inflammatory effects while black sugar is known for its moisturizing and exfoliating effects.
Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil
Oil products are not really recommended for people with oily skin because the perception is that it will make their face oilier.
But this product is different, as it is infused with natural oils from black beans that are responsible for regulating oil production.
It also contains a powerful antioxidant from black sesame oil and formulated with black currant seed oil to give our skin the nutrient it needs.
Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish
One of the mistakes people with oily skin do is to exfoliate and scrub their face too much.
This does not help with getting rid of the excess oil you have, instead, it increases inflammation that could cause acne and breakout.
Aside from black sugar’s moisturizing benefits, its small particles and unsaturated fatty acids are responsible for deep cleaning and removing excess sebum.
It is also infused with cranberry oil and shea butter to make your skin smoother.
Using this product is recommended 1-2 times a week, depending on your skin condition. But for very sensitive types of skin, this may be too harsh for you.
Supple Preparation Unscented Toner
Toners are vital in any skincare routine. But for oily skin, this is more beneficial as oily skin needs help in removing oil and dirt residue after cleansing.
This toner is alcohol and essential oil free. Alcohol-free toners are good for oily skin types as it can remove excess oil from your skin without affecting your skin’s natural oil production.
It is also infused with natural ingredients that help with moisture and balances pH level of skin after cleansing while giving a soothing feeling. It is suitable for all skin types.
Soft Airy UV Essence SPF50+ PA++++
Sunscreens are just as important as any of your skincare products.
Many sunscreens available on the market are heavy and sticky which makes it worse for people with oily skin so they tend to skip it.
Good thing, beauty brands like Missha have been producing lightweight sunscreens that are more suitable for any skin type.
This sunscreen is super lightweight as it is water-based infused with ingredients that moisturizes and brightens skin. It does not leave a greasy and sticky finish while providing protection from UV rays.
Determining your skin type before purchasing products is a must.
There are thousands of products that can be perfect for others and damaging for you. Just because the product is hyped up, does not mean you should buy it immediately.
Always check the ingredients and/or consult a dermatologist to determine what is best for your skin.
