A skin care routine for oily and acne prone skin

A skin care routine for oily and acne-prone skin requires a combination of products that control excess oil, unclog pores, and prevent breakouts. Here is a step-by-step guide for a morning and evening routine that can help keep your skin clear and healthy.

Morning routine:

  1. Cleanse: Start your day by washing your face with a gentle, oil-free cleanser. Avoid using harsh soaps or scrubs, as they can strip your skin of its natural oils and leave it feeling dry and tight. Look for a cleanser that contains tea tree oil which is a gentle exfoliant that helps unclog pores and prevent breakouts. It will also control excess oil generation in pores. The EnQ Tea tree Face Wash can be a good option.

  2. Tone: After cleansing, use a toner to balance the pH of your skin and prepare it for the rest of your routine. Toners also help to remove any remaining dirt or oil that may have been missed during cleansing. Look for a toner that contains Lemon or Cucumber or Green Tea Extracts which are natural astringents that helps control oil.

  3. Treat: Apply a spot treatment or serum to target any existing breakouts or areas of concern. Look for a product that contains green tea extracts or tea tree oil, which are both effective at reducing the appearance of acne.

  4. Moisturise: Finish your routine by applying a light, oil-free moisturiser. This will help keep your skin hydrated without adding excess oil, and also provide a smooth base for makeup application. The EnQ Magical Moringa Day Cream has been choice of many of our customers. 

Evening routine:

  1. Remove makeup: Before cleansing, remove any makeup and other impurities from your skin. Use an oil-free makeup remover or a gentle cleansing milk such as The EnQ Turmeric and Neem Facial Cleanser or The EnQ De-Tan Papaya Face Wash to gently dissolve your makeup and leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed.

  2. Cleanse: Repeat the same cleansing process as in the morning, taking care to remove all impurities and dirt from your skin.

  3. Exfoliate: Twice a week, use a gentle exfoliating scrub to help unclog pores and remove dead skin cells. Avoid using scrubs containing oil. The best option is Gel Based scrubs such as The EnQ Green Tea Gel Scrub or The EnQ Orange Gel Scrub. 

  4. Mask: Use a clay-based mask once a week to help absorb excess oil and unclog pores. Look for a mask that contains clay, which is effective at removing impurities from the skin.

  5. Treat: Apply a spot treatment or serum to target any existing breakouts or areas of concern.

  6. Moisturise: Finish your routine by applying a light, oil-free moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated overnight.

In addition to following this routine, it's important to make lifestyle changes that support healthy skin. Here are a few tips:

  1. Drink plenty of water: Staying hydrated is key to keeping your skin looking clear and healthy. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day to help flush out impurities and keep your skin hydrated.

  2. Eat a healthy diet: A diet high in processed foods and sugar can contribute to breakouts and other skin problems. Instead, opt for a diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.

  3. Get enough sleep: Getting adequate sleep is essential for healthy skin. Aim for seven to nine hours of sleep per night to help reduce stress and improve the overall health of your skin.

  4. Avoid touching your face: Touching your face with dirty hands can transfer bacteria and oil to your skin, leading to breakouts. Make a conscious effort to keep your hands away from your face, and wash your hands frequently throughout the day.
