5 Step summer skincare routine for oily acne prone skin


Our skincare routine should reflect the changes for each season. When the weather is hot and humid, you’re going to notice increased oil production, a shiny and greasy face, more breakouts, and clogged pores. That means the thicker creams you once used to help your skin during the colder months will no longer help during the hotter months.

Garnier Micellar Water

Instead of washing your face with harsh cleansers, you can try using micellar water in the morning. What I have been doing lately is sweeping a soaked cotton pad across my face instead of washing my face with a cleanser. I have been loving the Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water, which is alcohol-free, fragrance-free, oil-free and also very affordable! It cleanses and refreshes the skin all at once and it makes your skin feel clean and hydrated without leaving a greasy feeling.


Versed Cleansing Balm

I also have been loving the Versed Cleansing Balm as my nighttime cleanser . It has eucalyptus oil, vitamin E and jojoba oil. It’s affordable, natural and without any questionable chemicals or ingredients. Not only does it do a good job at melting off makeup, but it has a great texture. When you massage the cleansing balm into your skin, the texture feels lightweight and jelly-like, which is great for summer! So I highly recommend this if you like using cleansing balms but don’t want that heavy feeling most of them create.


Dr. Wu Clarifying Toner with BH

There are a lot of good ingredients inside of this toner, this include tea tree, mandelic acid, zinc lactate, niacinamide, panthenol, and salicylic acid. These ingredients help to control oils, manage sebum production in your pores, and calm and soothe breakouts. I have noticed some major improvements of my skin. Some improvements include a brighter looking complexion, even skin tone and texture.



Dr. Wu Intensive Renewal Serum with 18% Mandelic Acid

This serum can exfoliate dry flakes and patches without irritating because inside this serum is 18% highly purified mandelic acid. So it will leave your skin glowing,

Mandelic acid is a mild and multifunctional AHA with a high molecular weight. This means that you’re less likely to experience irritation while shedding off the extra layer of dead skin cells that would otherwise lead to clogged pores. It also has sodium hyaluronate, which is a derivative of hyaluronic acid and helps to moisturize the skin.


Ren ClearCalm 3 Replenishing Gel Cream

I use this moisturizer at night. I really like using this because its extra soothing. The texture of this Ren ClearCalm 3 Replenishing Gel Cream is interesting because it appears grainy upon first glance but the texture itself feels very soft and creamy. It has natural bioactive ingredients like Lingonberry seed oil, which is an omega-6 that helps to replenish the skin. There’s also seaweed extract which is moisture-binding, and licorice which is good for inflammation and hyperpigmentation.


Body Shop Mediterranean Almond Milk with Oats Instant Soothing Mask

This face mask is known to have oat in it, this is a soothing ingredient known for reducing inflammation, itching, and redness. I found this product when I was looking specifically for oat when I had a rash on my face. After using this mask for several nights, I noticed how my rash completely went away.
