OILY SKIN giveaway! So we’ve heard all about dry skin, but let’s talk about oily skin types now. More likely to have a shiny complexion, enlarged pores, and acne flares, but less likely to wrinkle and get red scaly patches in the winter! For today’s giveaway, @vichyusa and I are gifting the Fresh Gel Cleanser, Mineral 89, and Idealia cream. To enter, follow me and @vichyusa, and tag a friend in the comments below! Giveaway will be open from now until Thursday night, and winners will be announced Friday morning. I will be announcing our last Vichy giveaway on Friday as well, which will show some love for combination skin.
Here are my tips for how to take care of oily skin:
Use an oil free, non comedogenic cleanser
If you’re acne prone, consider ingredients such as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, which are active acne-fighting ingredients
A light-weight non-greasy moisturizer is still important, especially in the winter, and don’t forget your SPF as well
Retinoids work well for their comedolytic properties; one of their main side effects is also dryness, which can actually work in your favor if you have oily skin
