The analysis

For some women, oily skin has always been a part of life. For others, it can suddenly appear due to hormonal changes, stress or menopause. Oily skin is prone to breakouts and produces more sebum than most, so your objective is to balance your skin’s natural barrier while keeping it clean to avoid clogged pores.

The regimen

Cleanse: The last thing you want to do is clean oily skin so much that it dries out. Opt for a gentle balancing cleanser that’s strong enough to remove surface oil, dead skin and daily grime, but not so strong it leaves your skin feeling tight. Cleansers containing glycolic or lactic acid are ideal for oily complexions. (AM + PM)

Treat: Good news: oily skin ages more slowly than dry skin, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat fine lines and wrinkles while minimizing excess oil production. Lightweight treatment products suitable for oily skin types are ideal, as well as gentle chemical exfoliators that help deal with breakouts and promote radiance – a sign of younger skin. If you’re in need of something stronger, try using a deep clean clay-based mask once a week. (PM)

Moisturize: One of the biggest skincare misconception is that oily skin doesn’t require moisture. In fact, the more you deprive your skin of moisture, the more sebum it’s going to produce. Look for oil-free moisturizers that are lightweight and contain plenty of anti-ageing ingredients like nicotinamide, alpha hydroxyl acids and vitamin A. (AM + PM)

The analysis

Your complexion ages the fastest, often resulting in flaking and crepeyness. The key to a youthful glow lies in adding moisture and strengthening your skin’s natural barrier so that seasonal changes no longer shock your skin into sensitivity.

The regimen

Cleanse: Milky formulas are best for dry skin as they’re gentle and often alcohol-free. When you clean your face, it should feel cleansed, not squeaky clean. (AM + PM)

Treat: You’ll be more susceptible to irritation, so you need to avoid strong vitamin A-based anti-ageing products. Instead, use a weekly moisture mask plus a gentle enzyme-based exfoliator to clear away dullness and shed dead skin. (Weekly)

Moisturize: “It’s important to deeply hydrate all levels of the skin. When hydrated, the skin performs at its peak,” say Guinot beauty expert Laura Pritchard. Inject moisture through hyaluronic acid, a wonder product that makes your skin appear plump and can hold over 1000 times its weight in water. In addition, layering a facial oil or serum under a rich night cream that contains anti-ageing and hydrating ingredients, such as glycerin, shea butter and ceramides, will help draw those ingredients deeper into your skin.

Protection for everyone

Wear sunscreen every day

While the sun is one of the biggest causes of premature ageing, it can also be responsible for breakouts and loss of collagen due to free radicals. If you have oily skin, look for lighter formulas or a daily moisturizer with an in-built SPF 30+ (AM)
