Try A Clay Facial Cleanser:
Oily skin needs products that are mattifying and that will help get rid of the impurities of the day. So what better than clay facial cleansers that help to remove everyday impurities from the surface of your skin and from within the pores. These are also helpful in removing excess sebum (oil) from your congested pores and control their overproduction. These clay cleansers additionally help to maintain the pH balance of the skin to protect it against harmful bacteria.

Their different clays like red, green, black and purple, each have their own use like purifying, detoxing and clarifying to help combat the skin’s oiliness. They prevent breakouts and give you a less oilier skin this summer.
Use A Water Based Moisturiser:
It is obvious that using heavy cream can clog pores and that is clearly the last thing people with oily skin require. So it is best to use a water based moisturiser that is light, non-greasy and will not congest your pores. The moisturiser needs to get absorbed in your skin easily leaving a mattifying and non-sticky layer.
We recommend using the Good Vibes Revitalising Body Lotion - Almond because it gives you a silky, soft appearance and keeps your skin hydrated all day long. It is extremely light and makes sure that it won’t cause your oily skin any more damage. The fact that it provides long-lasting hydration in summer with a matte finish ensures that it is the best care for oily skin in summer.
Don’t Skip Out Sunscreen:
The next step in your skincare routine is undoubtedly sunscreens. One should be using sunscreen throughout the year but especially in summers considering harsh rays of the sun and the heat. Use a broad spectrum sunscreen that helps to protect your skin against both UVA and UVB rays of the sun. Additionally, make sure that your sunscreen has an SPF of more than 30 because this will protect you more from the sun's UV rays. Care should also be administered in the sense that it is crucial to reapply your sunscreen every 2-3 hours to protect the skin from tan and sunburn.
The Good Vibes Wide Spectrum Sunscreen With SPF 50 will safeguard your skin from damage and dark spots. It does not leave a white cast behind and is enriched with products like aloe vera, green tea, cucumber and jojoba oil that nourishes your skin cells while protecting them.
Exfoliate At Least Once A Week:
If you have oily skin, you know how easy it is for your pores to get clogged resulting in a dull-looking skin that is prone to breakouts. To combat this, add exfoliation in your daily skincare routine that helps to slough away the dead skin cells accumulated in your pores and over the surface of your skin. Exfoliation can also help bring about a cleaner, healthier-looking skin from underneath which is why it is a must summer skincare routine for oily skin.
For this, we would highly recommend using the Good Vibes Tea Tree Detoxifying Gel Scrub. It unclogs your pores, lifts away dead skin, fades acne scars and removes impurities from the skin due to its soft granulated texture. After use, it leaves you with a clean and clear skin that is well moisturised and silky looking.
Use A Face Mask:
Clay masks can be considered as one of the most popular skincare products out there and rightly so. Formulated with different types of clay or activated charcoal, these masks help to draw out the buildup of dirt, impurities and oil from the skin. It reduces the look of excess shine by controlling the production of oil in our skin and helps to give our face a mattifying finish.
