Oily skin is highly delicate and most difficult to handle and look after. It requires precision in the amount of hydrating and moisturizing the skin. Therefore, it needs thorough research in selecting the products suitable for such skin. Below mentioned are a few tips and products that need to be present in the kit of every person with oily skin.

  1. Cleanser

Be it any type of skin, cleansing is the basic part and first step of the skincare routine. It removes makeup particles, dirt, and extra oil that get accumulated on the face. It serves as the base for the application of all makeup products.

Cleansers that don't contain oil or alcohol are best for oily skin. The ingredient must be chosen as per the skin concern. Washing the face twice a day helps in getting better skin.

Dr. Sakhiya's Vitamin C Facewash is the best solution for your all skin concerns if you have oily skin. It not only cleanses but also hydrates it and provides the benefits of Vitamin C. More hydration means lesser oily skin. It is mild, clinically approved, safe, and non-comedogenic.

How to use?

  1. Wet your face with normal water and apply a good amount of face wash on your face and neck.

  2. Massage gently for a few minutes.

  3. Rinse well and use it at least twice a day for effective results.


  1. Face Serum

Several ingredients help in treating several issues of oily skin. If the skin is acne-prone, use salicylic acid. For moisture retention, use the serum with hyaluronic acid. If you are looking for dark spots, acne spots, or hyperpigmentation, go for vitamin C face serum. Use niacinamide face serum for overall skin health.

Dr. Sakhiya's Purifying and Glowing Skin Face Serum contains 10% Niacinamide which is good enough to treat oily skin issues. It claims not only to treat acne and reduce open pores but also to bring back the lost glow. It balances the sebum production which is the root cause of major skin issues.

How to use?

  1. Cleanse your skin and apply a few drops of this serum on your face and neck.

  2. Massage gently until the serum gets absorbed by the skin.

  3. For effective results, apply it twice a day.


  1. Body Lotion

If you think that oily skin doesn't need moisturization, you are handling it all wrong. The lesser the moisture in the skin, more is the oil produced by it and so is the greasier look.

Such skin type needs body lotion that contains well-balanced hydrating ingredients that give healthier skin. Stay away from heavy creams or oil-based moisturizers, instead go for water-based gel and non-comedogenic moisturizers.

Dr. Sakhiya's Vitamin C and Ceramide Moisturizing Body Lotion is hydrating and gives amazing results. It has all the goodness of Cocoa Butter, Glycerin, Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil, and Grapeseed Oil that is perfect for locking in moisture and hydrating the skin. This is dermatologically tested and safe for all skin types.

How to use?

  1. Take body lotion and apply it generously all over your body just after the shower.

  2. Massage in a circular motion until the moisturizer gets absorbed into the skin.


  1. Sunscreen

People with oily skin used to stay away from sunscreen as it used to add more grease to the already oily skin but these days, sunscreen is not oily and heavy. The only thing that needs to be considered is selecting the appropriate sunscreen that doesn't make the skin oilier.

Most people with oily skin should look for a mattifying sunscreen that doesn't clog the pores. If it has a moisturizing base, moisturizer can very well be skipped. If you are confused about choosing the appropriate sunscreen for you, go for Dr. Sakhiya's Sunscreen Enriched with Aloe Vera Extract.

This is a non-greasy 'broad-spectrum' sunscreen with SPF 30+ that not only shields the skin from harmful UV rays but also nourishes it with the goodness of aloe vera. It soothes, shields, and moisturizes the skin.

How to use?

  1. Take enough sunscreen and apply it on the cleaned face and the sun-exposed body parts.

  2. Do it at least 15-20 minutes before going outside.


  1. Home-based chemical peel

If you are confused about how the chemical can be a skincare product, then let me tell you that every chemical is not bad for the skin and it can bring out the best in your skin. Chemical peels are a blend of certain acids that can treat acne and scars and brighten the skin. These rejuvenate the skin and unclog the pores too.

Dr. Sakhiya's Quickpeel is the best solution for regaining the lost glow instantly. It has glycolic acid and caffeine with plant extracts that smoothen the rough skin, minimize the skin pores, and lighten the skin tone. This home-based peel removes the dead skin instantly and bounces the radiance.

How to use?

  1. Take only a small amount of quickpeel and apply it on a clean face, starting from the forehead and coming down to the chin.

  2. Don't neglect the neck area.

  3. In the initial applications, keep it for 10 minutes or so but later on, 5-10 minutes would be sufficient.

  4. Rinse well keeping your eyes tightly closed.

  5. Moisturize using Dr. Sakhiya's Vitamin C Moisturizer.

So these were a few skincare products that people with oily skin must have for healthy and oil-free skin. Start a proper skincare routine because nothing happens overnight.
