5 Easy-to-Follow Skincare Tips for Men with Oily Skin
As a man with oily skin, you may struggle to find the right skincare routine that suits your needs. Oily skin can be frustrating to deal with, but with the right skincare tips, you can keep it under control and achieve healthy-looking skin. Let us share some easy-to-follow skincare tips for men with oily skin & a bonus tip for night time skincare.
1. Wash your face twice a day.
Washing your face is the first step to managing oily skin. When you wash your face, you remove excess oil, dirt and impurities that can clog your pores and trigger acne breakouts. We recommend washing your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser. For instance, try JM Foaming Facial Cleanser. Rich in Dead Sea minerals, this cleanser will clean, moisturise and soften your skin while gently nourishing it.
Also, use only lukewarm water to wash your face. That’s because hot water can dry out your skin and trigger more oil production—and, of course, you don’t want that.
2. Exfoliate once a week.
Exfoliating is essential in any skincare routine, especially for men with oily skin. It helps remove dead skin cells, unclog pores and prevent acne breakouts. However, be careful not to over-exfoliate, as it can irritate your skin and cause more oil production. We recommend exfoliating once a week with a gentle exfoliating scrub.
3. Use oil-free skincare products for men.
When it comes to choosing skincare products, look for oil-free options. Oil-free products are formulated to hydrate your skin without clogging your pores or triggering more oil production. Look for products that are labelled “oil-free,” “non-comedogenic,” or “water-based.” Use an oil-free moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated & avoid using heavy creams that can leave a greasy residue on your skin.
4. Moisturise daily.
Contrary to popular belief, men with oily skin still need to moisturise. Moisturising helps balance your skin’s oil production while preventing dehydration. Look for a lightweight, oil-free moisturiser that will not leave a greasy feeling on your skin. It’s recommended to apply moisturiser twice a day—in the morning and at night.
5. Use sunscreen every single day.
Using sunscreen daily is one of the best skincare tips for oily skin. Sun damage can make oily skin worse, so it’s essential to shield your skin against the sun’s harmful UV rays. Be sure to pick a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Apply it daily, even if you’re not planning to spend all day outside. Also, look for a lightweight, oil-free sunscreen that won’t clog your pores and leave your skin feeling greasy.
Bonus tip: Apply night serum.
In addition to the above tips, applying a night serum can help manage oily skin. Night serums are designed to hydrate and nourish your skin while you sleep. Plus, they can help regulate your skin’s oil production. Look for a night serum that contains ingredients like vitamin C, niacinamide or hyaluronic acid. Those ingredients can help brighten your skin, reduce inflammation and improve your skin’s texture.
For instance, give JM Facial Serum For Men a try. It’s one of our Dead Sea products formulated specifically for men. It’s a lightweight, mineral-rich serum ideal for all skin types, including oily skin. It will help you achieve softer, smoother & healthier skin. Plus, it contains plant extracts like chamomile, which can calm your skin after shaving, and other nourishing ingredients that help maintain your skin’s moisture.
It doesn’t have to be complicated.
