Oily Skin? Here's a Low-Maintenance Skin Care Routine That Works

Excessive oiliness can be a pain deal to with: It leaves your complexion shiny instead of glowing, it makes your skin sticky, and it can have a disastrous effect on your makeup. What’s worse is that sometimes, the products you use only aggravate the problem instead of solving it. For starters, have you considered switching to priming using a moisturizer for oily skin?

The good news is oily skin may not be as unmanageable as you think. Here’s a quick and easy beauty routine to ensure that your skin stays fresh and shine-free the whole day.

Prime your face with a lightweight product.

Some girls with oily skin skip moisturizing for fear of looking like a greased sheet come lunchtime. But, this isn't the way to go. Use a lightweight moisturizer like Olay Regenerist Whip. This product has an airy whip texture that transforms from cream to liquid upon application. It has niacinamide that helps skin retain moisture, smoothens fine lines and wrinkles, and improves skin texture. This ensures that oily skin still gets the nutrients it deserves but without the heavy, greasy feel. It also leaves a matte finish, making it ideal as a makeup primer. Use it all over your face and neck to turn a sticky shine into a fresh and radiant glow.

To prove that it's truly a light-as-air moisturizer, lifestyle blogger Camille Co put Olay Whips to the test in a 100 Layers challenge versus a competitor moisturizer. Olay Regenerist Whips was quickly absorbed by the skin and did not leave any sticky feeling and residue even after applying 100 layers.

If you’re still worried about looking like a greasy mess, you could also add in these additional steps to your routine.

Set it up with powder.

Setting your skin with powder even before applying other makeup to give them something else to stick to. This will also keep your skin matte and shine-free longer. Don’t forget to apply powder over your eyelids, which is notorious for oil production.

Blot to make it better.

It may be tempting to repeatedly apply powder to your face throughout the day in an attempt to deal with the greasy slickness coating your T-zone. Unfortunately, doing so only makes things worse—you’ll wind up blocked pores and makeup that looks cakey. If your made-up face starts getting oily, reach for blotting papers instead of a powder puff. Make sure to give your forehead, nose, chin and the area underneath your eyes some extra blotting attention.

Preventing oiliness and saying goodbye to shine is easier than you think with Olay Regenerist Whip. No need to spend more time and money on additional oil control products.

Olay Regenerist Whips are available at Watsons and Lazada. For more information, visit their website and follow Olay Philippines on Facebook.
