Oily skin can be the bane of our existence, yet there are ways in which we can minimize the impact of having oily skin. It is all about choosing the right products for oily skin. For instance, using the appropriate skin cleansing tools, facial toner, facial cream, and eye cream can make all the difference.
Target oily skin starting with strong Facial Cleansing products
Everyone knows that the first step to any decent skincare routine is a cleanse. There are many alternatives in the market ranging from gel to foam washes. A facial wash is important as it helps remove dirt, dead skin cells, and other impurities from the pores on the skin. It helps calm down the skin and makes the next steps in the routine more efficient, as they can be absorbed better into the skin. Without dirt and oil creating a barrier, you will find that your skin looks clearer and fresh.
We recommend the Project E Beauty Enrich Foaming Wash to satisfy all your facial cleansing needs. It is a gentle cleanser with great moisturizing properties that helps clean out your pores. It has natural hydrating qualities as well that effectively leaves your skin radiant and healthy-looking. Best of all, it is wonderful for all skin types, whether it be dry or oily. For daily use, wet your face and spray the foam into your hands. Once applied to the face, move your hands in circular motions to help it get absorbed. After massaging it in for 60 seconds, rinse it off with water and pat dry. It is great as a self-care treat, but don’t shy away from gifting it to the men in your life as well! The product is well suited for men’s skin as well.
However, if foam is not your thing, you can try out Project E Beauty Hydrating Facial Cleanser which has a more cream-based consistency. It features a deep cleansing formula that lifts surface debris and impurities from the skin. It is an effective facial cleansing tool that removes dirt from the skin that could cause clogged pores and blackheads. Not only does it smell divine, but it also offers a creamy consistency that replenishes moisture back into the skin. It keeps skin healthy and clean with regular usage. This too is suitable for all skin types for everyone.
Following a Facial Cleanse with a Facial Toner
The toner is exactly what your skin needs after a cleanse. When a facial cleanser is applied to the skin, it leaves the pores enlarged and vulnerable. This is where the toner comes into play. It helps soothe the skin and shrinks pores down. Furthermore, a good facial toner should also have anti-inflammatory capabilities that can help reduce skin irritation and redness and become instantly refreshed.
We personally love the Project E Beauty Hydrating Facial Toner. It is gentle and moisturizing, and best of all– alcohol-free! As a toner, not only does it shrink the pores and calm the skin, but it also increases skin moisture, and even helps maintain your skin's healthy pH balance. A wonderful benefit for your skin is that it is fortified with a layer of hydration with the help of powerful humectant properties to keep the skin clear and well hydrated. Like the facial cleansers, this toner is also suitable for all skin types.
The skin, after a cleanse and toner, can seem a little parched. Here is where the facial cream comes into play. An ideal moisturizer will have intense hydrating properties that help fill in the appearance of lines and wrinkles and helps restore moisture for smoother, plumper skin. A moisturizer like this should be used on a daily basis. Another amazing benefit of a facial cream is that it Increases skin moisture and creates a moisturizing film to keep skin hydrated, fresh and calm.
If you’re in the market for such a moisturizer, you’re in luck! The Project E Beauty Nourishing Facial Moisturizer meets all these requirements and more. It has anti-aging qualities with the help of the ingredient Hyaluronic acid which supports cell renewal, boosting elasticity & skin radiance. The ingredients work in harmony, reducing the signs of age for a younger-looking face. Further, A combination of plant extract brings powerful hydration and anti-wrinkle effect.
This facial cream is also perfect for oily skin because it is extremely lightweight. It can be easily absorbed to leave skin luxuriously hydrated and instantly refreshed. To use, apply a small amount to your fingertips after a good cleanse, and using gentle motions, massage it into the skin. Allow some time for it to be absorbed, and you’re all good to go!
It can be easy to forget that the skin around the eyes needs a different knd of care than the rest of your face. It is a much more sensitive area as it is extremely thin and hardly has any fat tissue underneath. For this reason, a good eye cream is a clutch. It can help reduce puffiness and dark circles around the eyes and can also help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because of how sensitive the skin is, it can be predisposed to premature aging; a good eye cream would defend against these signs.
One of our favorites is the Project E Beauty Age Defender Eye Cream. This cream visibly reduces puffiness, lines, and dark circles. It is light with a non-greasy consistency and is specially formulated to defend against signs of premature aging around the eyes. Additionally, it visibly reduces puffiness, smooths the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and diminishes the appearance of dark circles around the eyes. To use, apply a small amount to your fingertips and gently pat around the eye region. This motion is best for absorption of the product.
We are so excited to have these new products in our repertoire. It is the ultimate self-care kit, perfect for yourself, or as gifts to the men and women in your lives!
