A common mistake in men’s skincare routine for oily skin are to wash their faces too excessively. This is a quick relief for removing the unattractive shine that accumulates on the skin’s surface but does nothing to tackle the root cause of oily skin. In fact, it makes the condition worse. The real reason for excessive oil production is because your skin is dehydrated.
By excessively cleansing your face, you are constantly stripping your skin of the moisture it needs to maintain and as a result, it produces even more oil to compensate. Following the right skincare routine is key to ensuring your skin is properly hydrated and your oil production is kept in control.
If you are using an exfoliator everyday right now, you should probably stop. Exfoliating too frequently will dry up your skin and worsen your condition. At most, exfoliate 2-3 times a week. Instead, get yourself a facial cleanser that will still help remove dirt and clean out clogged pores, but is gentler on the skin.
For this we can recommend you this multi- functional soap sponge charcoal (soap on the outside- sponge on the inside) from Daily Concepts.

2. Toner & Serum
These should be the most important part of men’s skincare routine for oily skin. But sadly they are often neglected by men. The toner works to shrink your pores and restore pH balance in your skin, both of which greatly helps keep oil production in control. Applying a serum after that helps hydrate deep under the skin’s surface. Most men will skip this and rely on moisturising creams instead, but there is a huge difference between the two. Serums consist of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin to directly feed your cells with the nourishment it needs to stay healthy and hydrated.
Where the serum works to hydrate beneath the surface of the skin, moisturisers, which are thicker and richer, help to lock in the hydration by creating a barrier, allowing your skin to better retain its moisture. Make sure to avoid facial creams that brand themselves as “oil-eliminating”, as these moisturisers often do the opposite of what you really want, by removing the hydration under your skin so that it looks less shiny in the short-term, but will worsen your dehydration issue in the long-term. Archiman moisturising face gel is perfect for this.
