1. Being scared of oils
There are face oils that are good for oily skin, like jojoba, tea tree, rosehip, and camomile oil. Jojoba oil has the closest molecular structure to our natural oils—it can deceive your oil glands to produce less oil. Tea tree oil, rosehip, and camomile oil are great carrier oils that can calm and heal zits.

2. Washing with harsh cleansers

Drying out the nasty red spots on your face with a harsh cleanser will only make matters worse. Use a gentle cleanser with salycylic acid or tea tree extract to banish blemishes without drying out the skin too much.

Philosophy is available at SM Megamall and Glorietta.

3. Exfoliating too much
Rubbing mechanical exfoliants like scrubs or facial brushes can be abrasive on problematic skin. Instead, massage products with lifting ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to gently renew skin.

Tony Moly is available at SM North, SM Megamall, SM Makati, SM Mall of Asia, SM Southmall, and Alabang Town Center

4. Using the wrong makeup

Look for cosmetics that are created especially for oily skin. Because makeup tends to disappear on oily skin fast, you need formulas that are guaranteed to be long-wearing and mattifying. These are usually loaded with skin-healing benefits to tame blemishes and oil glands.

5. Neglecting to moisturize

If you think that you'll end up with a slicker face if you layer on moisturizer, then you've got it all wrong, girl. Oil glands think that they need to double their production when your skin lacks moisture—you'll be shinier. Also, our complexion needs necessary hydration to stay young and healthy. Hunt for gel and oil-free formulas to maintain your skin's proper moisture balance.
