Jul 2, 2021

Oily skin is a tendency wherein your oil glands are overactive and therefore produce excess oil. Now, the pollution outside can and our overall unhealthy lifestyle can cause this to increase.

  • Use Facewash to cleanse your face twice a day, especially after you have spent time outdoors.
  • Avoid Scrubbing your Face as it leads to irritation and darkening of the skin.
  • Always clean your hands before touching your face and I would say try to not keep touching your face.
  • Use products that are oil-free and non-comedogenic – cleansers, moisturizers, and face washes.
  • Also, avoid alcohol-based cleansers.
  • Use a moisturizer daily, even if your skin is oily. Hydration is extremely important for healthy skin, and any good oil-free moisturizer can provide it.
  • Always use good sunscreen before stepping out. A gel-based sunscreen containing zinc oxide and titanium oxide is a good option. You should avoid sunscreen with fragrances and oil-based sunscreens.
  • Avoid touching your face with your hands and fingers. It can often lead to acne.

  • Now coming to the pigmentation on your skin that is, Hyperpigmentation. Dark spots/dark patches/generalized hyperpigmentation is all hyperpigmentation. It is caused due to an increase in the pigment called melanin in the upper layers of the skin. Melanin is normally an important part of the skin and gives our skin its color, but when it is increased, due to many factors both internal and external it leads to patches or spots or hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is caused mainly due to external factors-
    • Excess exposure to sun radiation is the most common cause of hyperpigmentation.
    • It can also occur due at the site of a previous injury or due to excess popping or scratching of pimples. Even excess or sudden fluctuations of hormones can lead to dark patches appearing on the skin.

Glowing skin secrets for oily face

  • Use water to clean your face.
  • As a part of your daily skincare regime, use a soap or face wash that contains Salicylic Acid with glycerine or other ingredients recommended for use on oily skin.
  • Use an oil-free and water-based moisturizer.
  • Use a toner as it keeps a check on excess oil, and being water-based, it hydrates the skin.
  • Use a water-based sunscreen.
  • Applying a clay mask can work wonders for oily skin, as the clay absorbs the excess oil in your skin.
  • Applying ice on the facial skin reduces the secretion of oil and brightens the complexion. Thus, using ice on the face is one of the most effective fairness tips for oily skin.
  • Oranges, apples, and lemons are rich in vitamin C and they help remove the oiliness of the skin, while also improving its texture. So a face pack that uses one of these ingredients is an excellent glowing skin tip for oily faces.
  • Use skin care products that can mask the excess oil on the facial skin. An oil-controlling primer, for example, forms a barrier between your skin and makeup, so that your skin does not look greasy. Use an oil-free and matte foundation to keep your face glowing for a long time. Similarly, a cream highlighter and a powder are other skin products that can help an oily face glow.

What are the causes of skin pigmentation?

Apart from that lifestyle changes are also extremely important.

  • Eating a Proper Diet
  • Getting a good amount of sleep is extremely important.
  • Eat foods containing Vitamin C, that is red and orange fruits.
  • Also leafy vegetables for Beta Carotene.


These were some of the glowing skin and fairness tips for oily skin. However, for the best advice on how to make the skin glow and fair, you should consult a dermatologist. He/she will help you keep your oily skin looking healthy and glowing always.

 Visit your dermatologist for treating pigmentation. Deeper pigmentation levels cannot be simply treated at home and need to get treated with medically proven treatment solutions. Go to your dermatologist so that he can assess your condition and recommend the right line of treatment, be it combination therapy or specific treatment.
