Oily Skin Take Down!

Hey Hey & Howdy!
I am back this week with a beauty post, but before that…Miku Expo! Did you all enjoy the expectation posts? We are so excited that we are thinking about having t-shirts made with the new STR Mascot image on it!! When we make the final design we will be sure to share it with you all! Anyways…I would catch you up on life but it is still work and school! Only difference is I’m starting to play Pokémon with the intent of catching a shiny Pokémon and playing the Looker Side-quest. (Insert obnoxious sigh here.)

oily skin

 

So, as you all may know; I have ridiculously oily skin that requires a rather large amount of care. I have a feeling some of you are looking for ways and products to help maintain oily skin. I have found a skin regimen that has been working for me for the latter part of summer! I’ll show you all of the products I use both day and night.

morning

For morning I tend to keep it relatively simple with two to three products. For cleansing I use TheFaceShop Charcoal Cleanser I showed you all in a previous post. Because this cleanser doesn’t do much in terms of exfoliating I use my Sasatinnie Exfoliator that I purchased from Sasa.Com! After rinsing I go ahead with a quick splash of super cold water and continue to pat dry with a clean towel.

Once my face is dried I use my TheFaceShop Calming Seed Calming Mist Toner. I’ll be the first to admit that I had no idea toners could be so helpful, but holy hand grenade they are! Moving on, I apply my TheFaceShop Calming Seed Skin-resting Cream as a moisturizer and that pretty much concludes my morning routine.

I will say that if my face seems especially oily or my skin appears shiny, I will do a quick spray of TheFaceShop Herb Water Powder Mist which has a powdered finish and makes the skin appear more matte.

night

At night, I spend a bit more time on my skin regimen. I begin with my St. Ives Green Tea Cleanser. Speaking of which, I swear by it as it is hypoallergenic and has kept my skin looking its best for years now. After about a minute of massaging the cleanser into my skin, I’ll rinse with relatively warm water and apply the same toner as listed above.

This next step is entirely optional but I have found it incredibly necessary as of late. After applying the toner and allowing my face to dry I will use my TheFaceShop Lovely ME:EX Magic Pink Powder Mask and leave it on all night. It has calamine in it which is actually quite nice and calming for my trouble skin and has helped with my cystic acne if I accidentally (or purposefully) intake dairy. I highly suggest this mask if you’re looking for a way to calm a breakout or have persistent redness.

If I decide not to use the mask I will let my skin rest after applying the toner and head straight to bed!

Well that is it for today’s post! I hope you all enjoyed this post and found it helpful or beneficial in some way or other.
