If you have oily skin, you’re not alone.

This is one of the most common skincare issues.

However, with the right skincare routine and products, oily skin issues can be minimized, if not completely eradicated.

In this letter, we’ll look at 4 key steps that can help combat oily skin concerns for healthy, clear, and shiny- oily-free skin.

So let’s get straight into it.

Vital Skincare Routine for Oily Skin | 4 Key Steps

Step 1: Cleanse, Morning & Evening

Cleansing your skin should come first in any skincare routine.

And if you have oily skin, you might need to double the intensity of cleansing.

You should be looking at cleansing your face in the morning and evening consistently.

This is because people with oily skin emit a lot of skin cells and oils.

And at night, this shedding of excess oils and dead skin is increased.

That is why even if you feel like your face is clean, you should continue cleansing  your face for an additional 5-10 minutes each time.

Washing your face with a  light-weight natural cleanser made with earth grown nutrients like the Manuka Honey Cleanser in the morning and evening is highly recommended.

Step 2: Use an Exfoliator

Use an exfoliator to double cleanse your face from makeup, dirt and oil residue that might have escaped the touch of  your cleanser.

Once your skin is clean and free from any residue, incorporate an exfoliator that contains either:

  • Green Tea Extract
  • Witch Hazel Extract
  • Lemongrass Extract

We recommend using Swiss Botany’s Micropolish Cleansing Exfoliator since it contains all the  above extracts.

Step 3: Treat your Skin

Treating your skin is essential for everyone irrespective of your skin type.

However, if you have oily skin, you should be using products that contain retinol and hyaluronic acid to treat your skin such as Retinol Moisturizer, Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Vitamin C Eye Gel Serum

Step 4: Moisturize, Morning & Evening

A Moisturizer is a very important component to add to your routine if you have oily skin.

It is a common belief that if you have oily skin, there’s no need to moisturize.

But this couldn’t be further from the truth.

All skin types need a moisturizer, but if you have oily skin, you should be more careful with the kind of moisturizer to use.

We recommend using a moisturizer that is:

  • Lightweight
  • Natural
  • Free of oils
  • Water-based


If you have oily skin, it means your skin is super sensitive and might breakout easily if a less than ideal (toxic) product is used.

That is why you should practice skinimalism (less is more/use less or minimal products) in your skincare routine.

Additionally, you should also make use of natural products that are rich in earth grown nutrients as these tend to be light and skin-friendly.

Swiss botany’s underlying policy is adhering to these norms.

All products are created from natural ingredients tailored for all skin types.

If you have oily skin, follow the above 4 step daily skincare routine and stand the best chance to reduce breakouts and control shininess.

Practice cleansing, exfoliating, treating your skin, and moisturizing both in the morning and evening as your new daily skincare routine.

And finally, choose the right products to help keep your skin clear and healthy.
