    Use a toner to pick up left over makeup, dirt, oil, and even cleanser you may have missed. Toning daily will help in the process of eliminating oil from your skin. 

  • Exfoliate

    Exfoliating your skin should be a part of your weekly skin care routine. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and encourages cell turnover giving your skin that gorgeous glow. When you fail to exfoliate you get buildup on the surface of your skin as well as in your pores putting you at risk for acne, blackheads, so on and so forth leaving your skin with a dull appearance. You should aim to exfoliate anywhere from 1 to 2 times a week while being careful not to over scrub and cause irritation. 

  • Sunscreen Everyday

    Sunblock helps combat oil production and the shine while protecting your skin. It’s important to choose a sunscreen that’s right for your skin when it comes to lathering up. There are many sunscreens on the market made specifically for your face so find one that’s right for you. 

  • Moisturize

    Like cleansing moisturizing should happen twice daily. Once after your early morning cleanse and also in the evening prior to bed. While many believe that moisturizing makes oily skin worse, it’s truly quite the opposite. When you strip your skin of moisture it encourages your sebaceous glands to produce more oil.
