Shopping for acne products can get confusing. From cleansers, toners for every type of skin, lotions, spot treatments, and more, what to use and when can be likened to solving complex math. A skincare regimen can be as simple as breaking things down for clarity.
To help take the guesswork out of how to care for oily & acne-prone skin, we put our heads together to come up with a simple four-step routine you can use in the morning and night to keep your skin healthy, clear, and acne-free.
Few Tips: Purging might happen sometimes when you use a new product. We suggest performing a patch test before using new skincare products to avoid the potential severity of an allergic reaction. And finally, breakouts are not necessarily purging, there are many causes of breakout. For best results, avoid touching your face and pimples, wash your pillowcases regularly, and sanitize the surface of your phone.

Step 4: Lightweight Moisturiser
Moisturising is a very important step if you have acne/oily skin. Don’t skip this step: While it may seem counterintuitive, oily skin types should still moisturise with face oils.
