Easy Skincare Routine For Oily Skin At Home


We try hard to maintain healthy skin without pimples, acne, scars, blemishes, and open pores. In order to get healthy skin, having a proper skincare routine is essential.   

In this post, I will discuss an easy skincare routine for oily skin, you can do at home. This skincare routine is what I’m still doing today and it brought me good results. You can also try this routine daily and see a clear change as well. 

Why A Skincare Routine For Oily Skin?

In order to resolve the skincare issues, especially when you have oily skin, you need the best skincare routine.

A skincare routine practices your skin to daily therapy and eventually, it makes healthy skin for you without acne, pimples, scars, blemishes, excess oil, and large pores.

Also, a skincare routine can make your skin glow, hydrated, and glass-glowing.

With the time and products you have, you can make your own skincare routine.

I usually have two separate skincare routines for day and night.

My Daytime Skincare Routine

During the daytime, our skin needs to give proper protection from the sun, nutrition, and hydrating as well while reducing excess oil. These points should be covered in your daytime skincare routine.

First, you need to wash your face using a face wash or a cleanser to wash away the dirt and excess oil on your face. My personal preference is Neutrogena oil-free acne wash with salicylic acid, which is really helpful to prevent my skin from acne.

Secondly, you can use a toner to close the pores and to have a smooth base as well. You can use cooled water as a toner which is really important to hydrate your skin and close the large pores.

If you want to do makeup, then you can follow the steps that I have mentioned in my previous article about oil-free makeup.

If you are not using makeup, then you can apply your sunscreen as your base layer. It is better to use a gel-based sunscreen because you have oily skin. Basically, cream-type sunscreens are not well absorbed into your skin which stays as a layer on your skin to protect it from the sun. 

Here, many of you may have a question about whether you should apply sunscreen before or after the moisturizer.

The answer is, that if you are using chemical sunscreen, you can use it before your moisturizer. It can help you to protect your skin from the sun. but if you apply your moisturizer first, it holds the sunscreen function which is to protect your skin from the sun. If you have physical sunscreen, then you can use it after moisturizing.

After using sunscreen, you can use your moisturizer. If you can use a moisturizer that is gel-based, then you can have the best result.

If you have under eye darkness, then your next step should be applying eye cream. Also, keep in mind to massage around your eyes gently using your ring finger.

The final step is to hydrate your lips. You can use a lip balm to give hydration to your lips.

My Nighttime Skincare Routine

Your skin needs better hydration and nutrition during the nighttime. Your nighttime skincare routine should cover these requirements as well. 

Again, you need to wash your face using your cleanser or face wash.

Then you can use a toner to close the large open pores. I use Ice cube treatment in this step. This treatment is a miracle that reduced my acne and scars.

Then you can apply your serum or moisturizer to your face. I personally love to apply aloe vera gel on my face and massage my face for at least 2-3 minutes. Our skin needs a massage to reduce aging lines, get smooth skin, reduce acne and scars, detoxify the skin, and get relief from tension. So keep in mind to give it as well.

After that, you can apply your eye cream and massage gently using your ring finger.

Again the final step is to hydrate your lips using a lip balm.

Additional Steps

This is my usual day and night time skincare routine that I followed for more than 3 years on a daily basis.

In addition to these skincare routines, I do not forget to do a facial at home twice a week. Most of the time, I do my facial during the nighttime.

Here, I exfoliate my skin after cleansing my face and then extracting blackheads and whiteheads using an extractor while steaming the face. 

After that, I tone my skin using a toner and I apply a DIY natural face pack or a Hydrating sheet face mask if I do not have much time. 

Finally, I apply my moisturizer.

If I have acne or pimples, I change my routine. I use only my cleanser to wash my face and do not apply any other chemical products to my face. I use the ice cube treatment to reduce the redness and pain of the acne and apply a medical product that I got under a physician’s guidance. 


When you customize your skincare routine, you need to identify what your skin needs, your skin type and what are your skin issues.

I have oily skin with scars, large pores, and acne during my period. Also, I do my makeup just 1 time in a week, and most of the time, I’m at home. My makeup is always getting oily and even when I’m at home my skin gets dark. I have under-eye darkness and dry lips as well. Also,  I have time to do facials at home and care about my skin. 

When I made my skincare routine, I focused on the points above and tried to find solutions through my skincare routine. 

Even though I wrote about my skincare routine as an oily skin person, you can create your own skincare routine whether you have any type of skin. What you need to do is give the things that your skin wants, through your skincare routine.
