BACK TO BASICS
GENTLE CLEANSER - Oil breeds bacteria, and bacteria leads to breakouts. Make sure you wash your face religiously every morning, night, and post-workout. Look for a gel or foam cleanser that’s free of sulfates so
as to not dry out your skin.
CALMING TONER - An alcohol-free toner is essential to avoid exasperating dryness that can in turn push your skin to produce even more oil to compensate. Ingredients that are humectants will help to hold water to your skin, while ingredients like geranium (an essential oil), and witch hazel (a natural astringent) are good for cutting oil.
AHA/BHA ACIDS - Will help to reduce the appearance of large pores as well as brighten dull spots. If you have acne-prone skin, look for ingredients like salicylic acid and tea tree oil to help keep your skin clear.
