The Ordinary routine for πŸ›’οΈOily skin beauties will have you looking Fresh all SeasonπŸ’›!
The summer season is always a little rough for my oily and combo skin beauties. While everyone else is out enjoying that no make-up, clean girl makeup, and dewy fresh look; oily skin babes just end up looking like a greasy mess. Oily skin beauties want to achieve that dewy fresh look too! If you fall into this category, turn that frown upside down because we have just the products you need to achieve a radiant and fresh face without looking like a slick oil mess. Everyone and anyone can achieve this look with our favorite budget-friendly skincare brand The Ordinary! Let’s take a closer look at three of their products best for oily and combination skin : the Marine Hyaluronic serum, the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA moisturizer and the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum .

Despite having an over production of oils on the skin, oily skin and combination skin beauties still need moisturization too. In fact, the more dehydrated the skin, the more it tends to over produce to over compensate for the lack of moisture on the skin barrier. Ironic huh? Don’t worry, we have you covered with an oily skin day and night routine.

The Marine Hyaluronics serum contains a ton of great moisturizing factors including marine derivatives which have all been sustainably sourced. These include Hawaiian red algae, blue-green algae and Antarctic glycoproteins; all of which are great for minimizing fine lines, wrinkles and improving overall skin appearance. The formulation of this serum makes it super lightweight and gives it an almost water-like feel. The marine based hydrating factors hold and absorb just as much moisture as hyaluronic acid, but absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy texture. And for a whopping $8, this oily skin friendly moisture serum is just what we need. Add this to your morning routine to give your day that boost of hydration.

The Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a serum formulated with a high concentration of vitamin B3 to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. The combination of niacinamide and zinc helps control oil production, tackles fine lines and is great for combating clogged pores and blemishes. This product is great for acne-prone and oily skin beauties who need that extra help in keeping their skin clear of oil and dirt. Don’t forget, niacinamide does not play well with vitamin C. Just remember not to use these products at the same time! Retailing for $12, this serum is great to add to your nighttime routine.Β 

The Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA is a lightweight moisturizer appropriate for all skin types. Formulated with a juicy blend of hydrating amino acids, fatty acids, triglycerides, ceramides, glycerin and hyaluronic acid, this moisturizer helps keep the outer layer hydrated without that greasy feeling. It can help relieve irritated skin and is a great booster for tired and dull skin. This product retails from $6-$11 and is great to use day and night. Because we can’t forget, oily skin needs moisture too!

Glowish influencer Shirley is back with another 14 day review of these oily skin friendly products. After fully testing out each product when she added them into her current skin care routine, she is very pleased with the results. Her oily/combination skin began producing less oil over time, while still maintaining a smooth and clear complexion. However, despite the positive results with all three products, the influencer would pass on the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA moisturizer, as she finds it to still be too heavy for her skin type.

Our influencer Shirley has enjoyed many products from The Ordinary and is always impressed by their straightforward and transparent ingredient list paired with a reasonable and accessible price point.
