i need to find a new moisturiser bc i have 2 brands with cleansers and toners that work so well for me already. right now, i'm using aveeno to moisturise lol. it's... moisturising my face. i want something better and something to control my shine. idek if i can really do much more about my oiliness bc i have an imbalance of my hormones (pcos), i rarely eat oily things anyways and even though i've been having trouble sleeping for the past 2 weeks, when i do manage to get proper sleep at night, i still get super oily super quickly : (

yesterday, i went to the kiehl's nearest to me and asked for samples, so i'm trying their tiny sample moisturisers out lol. the lady at the stand tested my forehead and cheek, and told me that i should try the water-gel formula for my t-zone and the normal, 'for all skin types' formula for where it's drier. :D

Usually gel type moisturizers are recommended for oily skin types~
As for facial wash i'm using Hada labo's green tea facial wash for oily/combination skin and it seems to be doing well keeping my oily face not so oily! A little goes a loooong way for this product tho. 

A senior of mine did suggest skinfood's mandarin & parsley set before, there's also cucumber set which has really good reviews~ not sure if they still sell any of these.

Hi, I have oily skin and hyperhidrosis and I've noticed that using hydrating skincare really helps! Like obviously for like 5 minutes I'm shiny but once my skin absorbs everything in I have just a natural glow as opposed to a shiny slip 'n' slide and my skin stops producing excess oils. I used to use this mattifying toner and cream and noticed an hour in white patches would show up as my skin would literally make excess oil and the cream would slide off my face.

Currently In the daytime I use:

-neutrogena hyrdogel face wash (it's a gel face  wash)

-pixi rose tonic toner (a hydrating and soothing toner)

- hyaluronic acid serum - look for higher molecular structured ones, lower ones can penetrate the skin too deep and cause inflammation and irritation. I switch between neutrogena hydrogel serum, la rochay pose hyalu b5 serum and nip & fab dragons blood plumping serum

- olay total effects 7 in one moisturizer in spf 30 

At night I do a triple cleanse : a cleansing oil, face wash and micellar water for the tough areas like mascara around the eye

I tone with pixi glow tonic, a glycolic acid toner which exfoliates the skin instead of the rose tonic

I add my hyaluronic acid serum and then a tea tree oil to treat any area where I may be about to break out. Tea tree is antiseptic and antifungal and antinflammatory. If the tingle is too much try a cbd oil instead.

Then i use a sheet or jelly mask about twice a week

Then i use a night cream.

If I'm super tired I'll only do the cleanser, toning and use an overnight mask instead and then knock out.

 

Some extra tips!

- limit your use of clay masks. I only use them when my period is due and my skin gets severely oily, so about once of twice a month. These can really take out a lot of oil and your skin goes into panic mode and produces excess oils to counteract that.

- keep your skin hydrated. Your skin will stop producing excess oils to overcompensate.

- i use hydrating skincare but I do use mattifying makeup products, so imagine dewy skin with a sheild of matte primer and powder. 

-if you use mattifying powder, try to avoid baking, especially where your face gets shiniest. It will highlight the natural textures of the skin in a way you don't normally see it and look cakey.

- in the summer, i also use a portable fan and blotting sheets for really hot days.

Hope this helps!
