In the last post, I wrote about our Frida Troubleshooting Set in 5 Steps to Treat Acne-prone Skin with Natural Products from FridaSkincare. Today is a special day for the Oily Skin. Especially in this Summertime where skin gets buttery at ease. So, here is a guideline for Oily Skin natural treatment from our Frida product catalogue. Promise you with the simplest routine with the working high-performance formulas. Because we use a blend of molecular botanical ingredients in each product, welcome to expect a healthier skin after a week of treatment with the complete set of our Sebum Control Skincare Set. Try and let me know!
STEP 1. Cleanse your Face Twice Daily
We separate the way we cleanse the oily skin into 2 options. Please find the best cleansing method that suits the need of skin condition below. So, if you are wearing:
- Waterproof Makeup: Before contacting face and/or hands with water, pump Oil Cleanser on a dry hand palm to dig out the hidden dirt on the pores and dissolve the waterproof thick makeups. Use circular upward motions during this Oil Massaging. You may rinse the face with water and continue with the Foam Cleanser. Alternatively, before this rinsing, you can directly apply, combine, and continue massaging with Foam Cleanser. A little dab of water will help it glide even more. The mix of these two cleansers will create some sort of creamy cleanser during massaging the face. And the result is a smoother skin texture right after rinsing them all off with water.
- Bare to Light Makeup: Wash your face with our Foam Cleanser. Our Frida Foam Cleanser will provide with the essential water-soluble vitamins such as Vitamin C and B3. With a special blend of powerful botanicals to not drying out the skin surface. Rinse well and pat dry with a towel as usual.
STEP 2. Regular Mask and Weekly Scrubbing
Our Mask & Scrub contains a balanced amount of essential plant-based fats and natural sebum absorbent agents like Activated Bamboo Charcoal. Our formula has been tested to suit the bipolar skin conditions. That is why our Mask & Scrub product is suitable for both Super Dry and Super Oily skin. A very rare formulation indeed! So, please do not hesitate to regularly mask with it and weekly scrub the face with this same 2-in-1 product. It is important to also understand the rule of thumb of exfoliating. There are 3 Types of Facial Skin that are Forbidden to be Scrubbed. One of the forbidden skin conditions to be scrubbed is the inflamed acne area. As for the masking purpose, please enjoy whenever you feel a need to mask the face with our Frida Mask&Scrub. Use this product as a facial mask only by avoiding scrubbing during rinsing at the final stage. Try at least 30 minutes or up to 1 hour of masking with our Frida Mask& Scrub as it will help to dry out the active acne almost instantly. This product gives an instant effect and also a long run effect for the routine users.
STEP 3. Balance your Sebum Production
Every time after washing the face (Step 1) and after masking or scrubbing treatment (Step 2), tap the face with our Frida Toner. This alcohol-free Toner helps the sebaceous glands to naturally find the right balance of its skin sebum after contacting with the rinsing water. Also, this Toner helps control bacterial growth on the skin, especially on the troubled skin, without over-drying it.
STEP 4. Troubleshooting
Now is the most important step of all, let’s troubleshoot the (Super) Oily Skin. Definitely, it will be no Facial Oils involved nor any other moisturizer products. At Frida, we have a Hydra-based serum that fits perfectly for the Oily Skin, i.e. Clarifying Anti-Blemish Solution:
Just directly apply this Blemish Solution acne serum all over the face to help decrease the shiny skin surface by controlling the sebum production after a few weeks of routine application. Also, this same acne troubleshooter will help shrink the pores and neutralize the inflamed red skin. The instant result is to dry out the pimples by deactivating ‘destructive microbes’ through promoting the balance skin flora.
Remember, not all Acne Serum in the market offers to balance the skin flora that is essential to growing healthier skin cells from the inside. This same serum will also act as an Acne Serum to protect the essential skin flora at the same time fighting against the acne-produced microorganism on the skin. Also, this hydra-based Serum is without Salicylic Acid that makes this serum is safe to use for the pregnant women and breastfeeding Moms. The process will be also without ‘peeling‘ the significant top layer of the skin.
STEP 5. Delicate Daytime Coating
This final step is only needed if the troubled skin needs to be coated to get an effect like after putting on some facial powder. We offer Blemish Beauty Balm to cover this need. Our Frida version of ‘BB Cream‘ is far different from other BB Cream that is available many in the market. This Frida version of BB Cream is filled with a packed of nutrients from mostly Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter that is blended with the natural UV absorbers and tinted without foundation powders, all shades come from the natural pigmented ingredients. Our BB Cream has been proven to be the Acne-prone skin besties. After this BB Cream application, you will need NO other stuff on your face as you are ready to go out naturally fully-furnished. Please skip this (Step 5) coating at nighttime before sleep because simply it is not needed.
So, that’s it! You only need between 5 to 6 products as a complete set for your Oily Skin Natural Treatment, both serves daytime and nighttime! No extra products or tools are required. This set is settled as an ALL-IN natural treatment that you can lightly travel with.
