How to Free Your Skin from Oil and Pimples

You CAN have squeaky clean and blemish free skin!

When the warmer months throw humidity and sweltering temperatures your way, you become a hot, sweaty mess, and your skin looks and feels like an oil slick – with a whitehead or two for company. #greasyskinproblems

Here’re four easy steps to banish oiliness and blemishes

1. Rinse the day away

Meet your new best friend: salicylic acid. It’s super-effective at fighting blemishes and deep cleaning pores to prevent future breakouts. To put your best face forward, choose a cleanser containing salicylic acid.

2. Get set to scrub

Make an effort to give your skin a good scrub twice a week and your skin will thank you with a fresh glow, minus the grease. Exfoliating helps to whisk away dead skin cells and dirt on the surface of the skin, which, if left there, can trap dirt and oil in your pores. Since the skin on your face is thinner than the rest of your body, make sure you use an exfoliator designed specifically for your face.

3. Keep it clear

If you’ve never used a toner, then your skin is in for a treat. What you want is a toner that balances pH, tightens and clears skin for a shine-free complexion. A bonus would be to use one that has salicylic acid. Pop a few drops on a cotton pad and swipe over dry skin after cleansing and exfoliating, and follow by applying moisturiser.

4. Manage moisture

It’s essential to make sure your skin is getting the hydration it needs to stay healthy and balanced all day long. Go for a lightweight lotion to avoid clogging your pores.

REMEMBER: As always, an SPF is essential so your skin’s protected from the sun’s damaging rays.
