Categories Beauty 3 Exfoliators For Oily Skin 21/03/2016Author Taylor BarringerNo Comments on 3 Exfoliators For Oily Skin Exfoliating is one of those steps in any skincare routine that doesn’t have an exact how and when. For most of us, it’s a given that we wash our face at night, that we moisturize morning and night and that serum is one of those non-negotiable steps over the age of 30. But ask anyone how often and when to use our exfoliators, and we guarantee you’ll have everyone singing a different tune. The thing is, exfoliating doesn’t really have any rules, other than we should all be doing it—and with the right product. There are peels, pads, serums, and scrubs out there at our disposal, but sometimes knowing which to get it half the battle. For those with oily skin, it all boils down to the right ingredients. Those with larger pores and excess oil know that exfoliating can sometimes be the difference between having to carry blotting powder or not. Formulas that are gentle will help to slough off the dead skin while deep cleaning pores which then leads to less oil. Look for ingredients like clay, charcoal, and crushed pearls, but steer clear of scrubs with crushed fruit pits—those will only cause microscopic tears in the skin which only leads to more breakouts.
