Oily skin? Put your trust in the right skincare routine (finally!)

Take back control! Try a tailored skincare routine to calm, treat and perfect your blemish-prone complexion.

Why does skin need a routine?


A regular skincare routine ensures your skin looks its best, as well as helping to treat imperfections as and when they occur. The two most important steps, especially for oily skin, are cleansing and hydrating. Effective cleansing step removes grease and dead skin cells, while hydration repairs the skin's protective barrier, strengthening the epidermis against external aggressions. Once skin has been calmed, it will stop producing the excess sebum responsible for shine and breakouts.

Which routine is right for my oily skin?


Several factors that tend to influence the way we approach skincare routines, with skin type arguably the most important. Products intended for use on dry skin, for example, are not suitable for those with greasy skin, and can often even make problems worse. To help stabilise oily skin that’s prone to breakouts, Vichy developed the Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel and its accompanying Beautifying Anti-Blemish Care, which work together to treat blemish-prone skin.

Start with a cleanser


It’s important to thoroughly remove dirt, makeup, oil and anything else that risks clogging your pores by using a cleanser capable of a full deep clean. Opt for products featuring microexfoliants, such as LHA, which are gentle enough for everyday use while thoroughly cleansing skin. Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel is specifically designed for skin with imperfections, removing impurities without drying the skin. The soap-free blend of Salicylic Acid, Totarol, Eperuline and Glycolic acid is ideal for daily use, showing improvement with every application. Almost 75% of test subjects reported cleaner, more purified skin after 28 days of continued use, with 67% reporting a more refined skin texture.[1]

Follow with hydration


When skin is thoroughly cleansed, follow with a day cream that targets oily skin’s specific needs while tackling imperfections. Thanks to the presence of hydrating glycerin, Normaderm’s Beautifying Anti-Blemish Care brings moisture and comfort to the skin, reducing shine with a mattifying finish. After just four weeks of use, over 90% of women said their skin was less oily, pores were less visible and skin felt hydrated. What’s more, imperfections are reduced by up to 75% when used as part of a regular skincare routine.[1]
