Skin Care Routine For Oily Skin
What is oily skin?
Oily skin is thicker and has larger pores that can easily become clogged, resulting in an increase of blackheads or whiteheads. Skin is thick, dull and generally insensitive to harsh chemicals and climates. A skincare routine is essential to keep the oil and breakouts at bay. So let's dive into building a basic skincare routine for your oily skin.
Step 1: Cleanse
We recommend: Jack Black Deep Dive Glycolic Facial Cleanser
Why? Remove dirt and oil your skin naturally collects.
When? Twice a day, morning and night.
The Kaolin clay in Jack Black's Deep Dive Cleanser will help to absorb oils, leaving skin feeling drier for longer.

Step 2: Tone
We recommend: Thayer's Original Witch Hazel Astringent
Why? Remove dirt and oil missed when cleansing, and prime the skin for moisturiser. But toning can be optional if you're short on time.
Your toner will collect any excess dirt and oil left after cleansing, as well as priming the skin to allow moisturisers and serums to penetrate deeper into your skin. Using an astringent toner will help kill blemish-causing bacteria.

Step 3: Treat
We recommend: men-u Matt Skin Refresh Gel with Salicylic Acid
Why? If you want to target a specific issue, such as fine lines and wrinkles, or large pores, then look at adding a serum to your routine.
When? 1-2 times a day, after toning.
Like the vitamin-packed shot you add to your juice, serums are highly concentrated, fast-acting and effective. Salicylic Acid will gently exfolaite skin to control oil, reduce the appearance of pores and keep skin clearer.

Step 4: Moisturise
We recommend: Jack Black Clean Break Oil-Free Moisturiser
Why? Don't mistake oil for moisture. Surprisingly, oily skin can be quite dehydrated, and skin will produce extra oil to compensate. Even the oiliest of skin should be using a moisturiser to properly hydrate and balance skin.
When? Twice a day, morning and night, after toning and/or applying serum.
Choose an oil-free, lightweight cream or gel moisturiser that won't leave you looking shiny. If your moisturiser doesn't contain any SPF, always apply a sunscreen afterwards.

Step 5: Exfoliate
We recommend: Jack Black Face Buff Energising Scrub
Why? Remove dead skin cells, revitalise complexion and prep the skin for shaving.
When? 2-3 times a week, after cleaning and before shaving.
Dead skin cells will cause oil to build-up under the surface, which causes pimples. Regular exfoliation will keep everything clean and new.

Optional: Face Mask
We recommend: Baxter of California Clay Mask AHA
Why? Remove dead skin cells, revitalise complexion and clear impurities.
When? 1-2 times a week, after cleansing.
A gentle mask will get into your pores to draw out oils and impurities that a cleanser can't reach.
