Skincare for Oily Skin

I am 21 and i’ve had extremely oily skin for as long as I can remember. No matter what face wash, moisturizer, or treatments, I use, nothing helps.


My current skincare routine is:
- Panoxyl face wash in the AM
- Paula’s choice BHA, after my patting my face dry from the face wash (applied with cotton round)
- Glossier oil control moisturizer (pea sized amount)


Throughout the day i constantly have to use oil blotting sheets to get rid of the grease on my face. My skin feels so slick all the time and i can’t seem to find a routine or combination of products to work for me. Please help!

Re: Skincare for Oily Skin

Try layering your moisturizers- Sometimes when we have oily skin, we shy away from too much moisture- thinking it just adds to the oil production, but in reality sometimes shying away from moisturizing has the opposite effect! 

After cleansing and toning I started using The INKEY List Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Hydrating Face Serum , then my moisturizer and then putting a light moisturizing sunscreen on top! It has definitely made a difference for me!

My 21 year old son likes Skinfix barrier+ Skin Barrier + Lightweight + Pore-Refining Refillable Gel Cream with B-L3™. It’s a lightweight gel that doesn’t exacerbate acne.
