A guide to managing oily skin

Frustrated with that never-ending battle against a greasy face, and the struggle to keep makeup in place past mid-morning? Maybe you're just plain tired of looking at your reflection in the mirror and seeing a need for blotting paper instead of a fresh, radiant complexion.

Oily skin happens when your skin makes too much sebum, the waxy, oily substance that protects and hydrates the surface of your skin. It’s vital for skin health and keeping us looking youthful. But too much makes you look greasy, shiny and can lead to clogged pores, and unwanted acne.

We can get a little confused about the best way to care for oily skin, so here are our top tips to help you manage the grease and shine.


It’s best to wash your face twice daily (morning and night) with a gentle cleanser to remove excess oil and grime. Our favourite is Janssen Cosmetics Gentle Cleansing Powder to give you that squeaky clean feeling, without stripping your skin.


If you’re someone who loves a 2 in 1 product to help control an oily complexion, try Janssen Cosmetics Enzyme Peeling Powder, a 2-in-1 product that gently cleanses and exfoliates at the same time, promoting healthy skin turnover and helping to prevent inflammation, pimples, and blackheads.


Using the right kind of mask, a couple of times a week can really help bring oily skin back into balance. We love Janssen Cosmetics Intense Clearing Mask. It works hard to help mattify, reduce pore size, mop up excess oils, and reduce inflammation.


The right moisturiser helps regulate the oil and will boost skin hydration. The key is to find the perfect product specifically targeted to oily skin types that won’t clog pores or leave a greasy residue. One of our favourites is Janssen Cosmetics Light Mattifying Cream.

Oily skin can be a nuisance, but it’s not all doom and gloom. Finding the right products for you can help get you on the path to having fresh, smooth, and radiant skin.

As with any skincare, individual experiences may vary, and it's important to consider potential sensitivities or allergies. If you have specific skin concerns or conditions, consulting with a dermatologist or skincare professional is recommended to determine the best approach for your skincare routine.
