Finding a skincare routine that works for you is essential to maintaining the skin you desire. If you want to build up your confidence and start 2021 embodying the best version of yourself, start by looking at your skin type and determining the types of products you need. In order to improve and progress, you need to reflect and introspect to determine your next steps. If you’re tired of managing oily skin, there are many ways you can deal with it. Here are some tips to consider if you want to minimize oily skin:


If you’ve never exfoliated, you don’t know what you’re missing. But, we are here to tell you why it matters. Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells that collect over time. If you’ve ever felt dry, flaky skin before, that is left over dead skin cells we are referring to, and exfoliating regularly can get rid of them. 

It’s important to exfoliate once a week to ensure that dirt, debris, oils and makeup are completely removed from the surface of the skin so that you can apply products such as moisturizers or serums. If you don’t exfoliate, the products can’t absorb into the fresh, clean skin because there is a barrier of dead skin cells and natural oils in the way.

Exfoliating can also help turn increase collagen production, unclog pores, and prevents acne, evens skin, tone, and so much more! If you have oily skin, exfoliating reduces breakouts by keeping the pores from becoming clogged with sebum. You also decrease your chances of wrinkles and premature aging by exfoliating.


Probably one of the most important tips we can give you is to eat nutritious meals. It doesn’t matter what you want to improve health-wise, making sure you consume nutrient-rich foods can help get the job done. Our diet plays a significant role in our skin health and appearance. If you want to minimize your oily skin, it’s important to consume omega 3-fatty acids, citrus fruits, water-rich foods, and antioxidant-packed foods.

Some examples of these foods are oranges, nuts, cucumbers, and green vegetables. These foods contain water, detoxifying components, and fiber to keep your skin moisturized and your oil production minimized.
