Summer Skincare Routine For Oily Skin: The Only AM & PM Routine You Need To Beat The Heat

Let’s face it! Summers wreaks havoc on all the skin types but people with oily skin type suffer the wrath a bit more. The hot and humid days of summers trigger sebaceous glands to produce excessive oil, making your skin greasy and allowing dust, dirt, pollution, and acne-causing bacteria to stick to the skin’s surface. Result! People with oily skin struggle with clogged pores, inflammation, and acne! That’s why, it’s necessary to indulge in an effective summer skincare routine for oily skin to avoid acne breakouts and clogged pores. If you don’t know where to start, we’ve got your back. Here’s a thorough AM and PM summer skincare routine for oily skin that will help you take care of your precious skin during the hot, humid days.

Summer Skincare Routine For Oily Skin

Check out the following AM and PM routines and tackle oily skin in summer like a pro:

AM Summer Skincare Routine For Oily Skin

  1. Step 1: Cleansing
  2. Start your AM summer skincare routine for oily skin by cleansing your skin with a dedicated oil-control face wash and rinsing it with cold water. Cleansers help to eliminate dirt, dust, pollution, and sebum from your skin and prepare it for the next steps of your skincare routine. We recommend you to use the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Foam Gel as it reaches up to 10 layers deep to exfoliate dead cells, unclog pores, and control sebum production.

  3. Step 2: Exfoliate
  4. Make exfoliation a part of your summer skincare for oily skin if you haven’t included it already. Exfoliators help to unclog pores, minimise whiteheads and blackheads, accelerate the skin renewal process, stimulate blood flow, and enhance the skin’s hydration and moisture levels. Those with oily skin must exfoliate twice or thrice a week to remove excess sebum, dirt, and dead skin build-up from the skin’s surface.

    Pro tip: Don’t over-exfoliate oily skin as it might irritate the skin.

  5. Step 3: Apply Toner
  6. An ideal summer skincare routine for oily skin is incomplete without toning. A targeted toner for oily skin pulls out residual impurities from your skin after cleansing. Additionally, toning aids in shrinking the pore size, minimising the appearance of pores, thus giving your skin a smooth appearance.

  7. Step 4: Hydrate with Face Mask
  8. Avoid oily skin in summer by including a face mask in your AM skincare regime. Oily skin needs hydration to maintain oil balance. Enter sheet mask! Sheet masks are known for their hydrating capabilities, tightening the appearance of pores, and closing open pores. So, pamper your skin this summer by applying a sheet mask. We recommend you use the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence Sheet Mask as it’s formulated with an advanced patent cushion tissue mask technology with up to 30x more absorption power to make the skin hydrated, smooth, and radiant.

  9. Step 5: Moisturising
  10. Complete your morning CTM routine for oily skin in summer by applying a water-based lightweight moisturiser or cream. While looking for moisturisers for oily skin, go for ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Salicylic acid is a star ingredient when it comes to tackling oily skin as it helps to unclog pores and prevent breakouts. Benzoyl peroxide, on the other hand, removes acne-causing bacteria, and manages skin oiliness, and breakouts. We recommend you to include L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Gel Cream in your summer oily skin care routine as it is made with a water-based, oil-free formulation to prevent inflammation.

  11. Step 6: Sunscreen
  12. Summer is here, therefore, adding sunscreen to your vanity is a mandate for all the skin types, especially oily skin. Use a dedicated sunscreen that can shield your skin from harmful UV rays and extend oil-control benefits. We recommend you use L’Oréal Paris UV Defender Serum Protector Sunscreen Matte and Fresh that comes with oil control ingredients like Airlicium and SPF 50+ PA++++ that provide broad spectrum protection against UVA, UVB, and Long-Range UV rays and is ideal for people with oily skin.

PM Summer Skincare Routine For Oily Skin

  1. Step 1: Cleansing
  2. Start your PM oily skin care in summer by cleansing your face with micellar water. Micellar water acts like a cleansing magnet that gently cleanses the skin and eliminates sebum from the skin’s surface without irritating it. We recommend you use the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal purifying Micellar Water. Specially designed for oily skin, the no-rinsing formula of this micellar water thoroughly cleanses pores, and removes excess oil and makeup residue to leave you with a crystal-clear skin.

  3. Step 2: Essence
  4. Is a skin essence necessary for summer skincare for oily skin? Of course, yes! Skin essences are lightweight products that can penetrate the deeper layers of the skin to deliver intense hydration. After cleansing your skin, apply a targeted skin essence for oily skin. We recommend you to include L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence in your summer skincare for oily skin.

  5. Step 3: Apply Moisturiser and Eye cream
  6. Conclude your PM summer skincare routine for oily skin by applying the water-based moisturiser (that you applied during the day). Take additional care of your delicate under-eye area with a soothing eye cream. We recommend you to use L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Action Transforming Eye Cream that gives an icy cooling effect around the eyes during summers.
