Oily skin remities
Patients that experience oily skin meltdown of makeup during the day need to look at using products that will keep the skin balanced all day long. Using an cleanser designed for this skin type is a good first step, then use an exfolliating scrub 2 to 3 times a week, ZO Medical has a product called Cebatrol which are oil control pads containing 2% Salicylic acid, mandelic acid which helps resurface skin for a smoother appearance and Triclosan which provides additional antibacterial benifits. Benzoyl Peroxide is a acne fighting formula that helps control surface oil, mimnimize redness and prevent future breakouts.
You should use a facial wash suited for oily skin, then a toner followed by a Vit C and Vit E serum and lastly a moisturizer designed specifically for oily skin.
I use PCA skin care line for my oily skinned patients including my self and it works great.
