As the summer weather is arriving. I would like to share some tips and tricks for some of you (including me) who have oily skin!
Carefully choose your moisturizers
Switch to a light weight moisturizer in the daytime, while still using a more nourishing moisturizer at night.
Using a light weight Hydrating moisturizer/serum during the day when our skin typically produces more oil can help reduce the appearance of oil on your skin. I would recommend Skin Essence Organic, Light serum. The extracts and essential oils used in this formula contain natural healing, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which help to keep the skin clean and clear, preventing breakouts.

Using a lighter product during the day will also allow you to use your more nourishing products at night, our skin naturally rejuvenates while we sleep, why not help it recover with a boost of nutrients and vitamins. My personal favorite evening serum is Corpa Foras Eclat Citrouille. This bed-time beauty booster soothes and repairs damaged skin by reviving the epidermis with natural anti-inflammatory, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and natural wrinkle fighters which help restore a youthful glow and diminish fine lines.

Ditch the foundation
Heavy foundations can add weight and oil to your skin especially on hot summer days. Try skipping the foundation and only applying concealer on problem areas (under eye circles or blemishes). If you still want coverage, a tinted moisturizer can be a good alternative to your foundation. I like to use Arbonnes pollution defense CC cream. This particular CC Cream contains mineral SPF and creates a breathable second skin to protect you from everyday pollution as small as PM 2.5 microns, which lingers in the air and can stick to the skin’s surface.

Gentle daily exfoliation
Gentle daily exfoliations can help prevent build up and breakouts that anyone with oily skin tend to deal with. If you are exfoliating every day, it is important to use a gentle form of exfoliation. One form of exfoliation is a Konjac sponge. The Konjac Sponge are made from konjac plant root, which is naturally alkaline to balance the acidity of the skin's impurities, ideal for daily exfoliating.

You can also use a silicone face cleanser with your daily cleanser. Providing a gentle massage with your exfoliation.
Upgrade your SPF
Using a natural suncreen instead of a chemical based product will not only be healthier for your skin but will also feel lighter.
Skin essences E-cream has a natural SPF 30, the zinc oxide used in this cream offers natural healing, soothing, and sun protection qualities.
Lastly, dont forget to enjoy the beautiful weather!!
