Skincare for Oily Skin & Visible Pores

Understanding oily skin and visible pores

Oily skin and large pores are very common concerns, especially for those who live in humid environments. Oily skin typically happens when your skin produces too much sebum. While sebum is needed to keep the skin hydrated and healthy, an excess of sebum production results in an unflatteringly shiny complexion and large pores. Sometimes, this can also trigger breakouts, black heads and dullness.

When you have oily skin, applying make-up can be a chore because the combination of make-up and sebum creates an uneven texture. Oil-absorbing sheets will help, but only as a short-term fix. If you have oily skin or large pores, you should shop for pore tightening products and skincare products for oily skin.


How to care for oily skin and large pores

The first step in every skincare routine is to cleanse your face. With oily skin, you should use a gentle cleanser in the morning and evening. One of the best skincare products for oily skin to start with is the Cleansing Milk with Gentian. Made with Orris Root and Alpine Herbs, this milk cleanser soothes and cleanses to remove dirt and impurities with spa-like efficiency. It also removes make-up. Plant-based ingredients such as Gentian, Hawthorn and Sage help to rebalance oily-prone skin for radiance and comfort, leaving your skin feeling super soft and supple.

If you have visible pores, you can look into pore minimisers in Singapore. Exfoliating your skin at least once or twice a week is necessary to avoid the buildup of dead skin cells, which leads to large pores and uneven skin tone. Our Clarins Pure Scrub is a gentle facial scrub with micro lava beads that suit both combination and oily skin types. Packed with Alpine Willow Herb and Volcanic Rock Beads, this pore-tightening product effectively sloughs off dead skin cells and unclogs the pores, so your skin appears mattified, refreshed and shine-free.

Don’t forget to use a toner after cleansing to tighten the pores and hydrate the skin. The Toning Lotion with Iris is a popular skincare product for oily skin because it is specially formulated with Iris and Sage to combat wrinkles, dryness and skin-slackening while containing anti-inflammatory effects that help soothe skin. It also tightens the pores through its innovative formula. You won’t have to worry because it does not contain alcohol, so it’s especially safe for oily skin. Alcohol-free toners are always preferred since they won’t leave a stinging sensation, and are extra gentle on the skin.

It’s good to incorporate a pore-minimising serum into your routine, such as the Pore Control Serum, a well-loved pore-minimising in Singapore because it visibly tightens the pores and mattefies the skin for a shine-free complexion. It contains a rich blend of Arbutus and Tamarin extracts that eliminate dead skin cells and reduce sebum production, leading to a smoother, radiant complexion.


Using a facial treatment oil for oily skin and visible pores

A facial treatment oil like the Lotus Face Treatment Oil is a good pore-minimising product that’s ideal for oily skin. Made from pure plant extracts like Rosemary, Geranium and Lotus extracts, this gentle face treatment oil effectively purifies skin, tightens pores and refines your skin’s texture. It protects skin against dehydration and leaves your face supple and soft upon application.
