Get Rid Of Oily Skin Problems Once And For All with the Pharmaceris Oily Skin Range
If you’ve got oily skin, it can sometimes feel like an uphill battle between your pores and your skincare routine. Luckily, there are many ways you can tackle oily skin problems and achieve a healthy, glowing complexion without needing to go on prescription medication.
In this article, we’re going to take a look at what causes oily skin, how you can manage it with good habits, and why we recommend the Pharmaceris oily skin range to help tackle oiliness, pimples, and shiny skin.
What is oily skin?
Oily skin can be categorised by an overproduction of sebum: this means that your skin produces more oil than it needs to in order to keep your complexion hydrated. The result? Slick, oily skin, excess pimples, and overall irritation with the unwillingness of your skin to cooperate with your skincare products.
Symptoms of oily skin:
If you’re not sure whether or not you have oily skin, take a look at the list below. Those with an oily skin type will typically experience at least two or more of the following skin symptoms:
- Make-up that slides off during the day
- Waking up with a complexion that feels greasy or “slick”
- Experiencing regular pimples or cystic acne
- Your hair becomes greasy quite quickly
- Your skin might feel overly textured

What’s in the collection?
When it comes to the Pharmaceris Oily Skin range, here’s are some of the most popular products included in the collection:
Pharmaceris Toner for Oily skin
Toning is a highly important skincare step for those with oily skin; the Pharmaceris toner for oily skin is formulated with antibacterial properties to ensure that your skin remains pimple-free, while exfoliating dead skin cells. Enriched with zinc, this toner also helps to refine pores and fix any uneven skin tone (common amongst those with oily skin).
Hydrating Pharmaceris Cream for Acne-prone and Oily Skin
In order to prevent your skin from overcompensating and producing even more oil, you need to keep your complexion hydrated at all times. Pharmaceris uses hygroscopic molecules and antibacterial properties to plump up and hydrate the skin without clogging the pores.
Targeted Spot Treatment
For those days when pimples decide to pop up unexpectedly, a good on-the-go spot treatment can work wonders at helping you regain your confidence. Pharmacist Targeted Spot Treatment uses salicylic acid to get rid of the bacteria and reduce the size of the pimple, while the formula uses D-panthenol to reduce inflammation and redness, and soothe the skin quickly.
Gentle Face Wash
When you have oily skin, any bacteria or excess oil on your skin is more susceptible to getting trapped under the pores and causing a nasty pimple. That’s why it’s so important to incorporate an antibacterial face wash into your skincare routine. Pharmaceris’ T Antibacterial Gel Wash purifies the skin and gets rid of all bacteria, while absorbing excess oil and trying to regulate oil production.
How to use the Pharmaceris Oily Skin Range for Clear Skin
Creating a skincare routine for oily skin is simple when you understand what steps to take (and more importantly, in which order.) Here’s how we’d recommend using the Pharmaceris Oily Skin range for blemish-free, glowing skin in no time:
Step 1: Gentle cleansing.
Using Pharmaceris’ Antibacterial Gel Wash, remove any make-up and clear out any skin impurities by washing your face. It’s a good idea to double-cleanse if you’re wearing make-up, or if you’ve been at the gym or had a long, busy day.
Rather than opt for an abrasive cleanser (such as a scrub or cleansing brush) oily skin reacts much better to gentle cleansing; this way, you won’t overly strip the skin of its natural oils and end up with oilier skin than before!
Step 2: Toning
Toning is essential for oily skin types: your toner will help to restore balance to your complexion following cleansing, and will also make sure to get rid of any excess oil or bacteria that your cleanser failed to remove. Using a cotton pad, swipe Pharmaceris’ Toner for Oily Skin all over your face. If you only have an oily T-zone, you can use your toner exclusively on that area of your face.
Step 3: Moisturising
As we already mentioned above, hydration is key to keeping oily skin under control. It might feel counterproductive at first - your skin already feels oily enough, why do you have to add more moisture? It’s simple: without moisturising after cleansing (aka replacing the natural lubricants that were stripped from the skin during cleansing) your skin is going to go into overcompensation mode and produce even more oil.
For the penultimate step in your oily skincare routine, apply one of Pharmaceris’ moisturisers for oily skin. You can pick from their Night Cream, Day Cream, retinol cream, and their skin-refining moisturiser.
Step 4: Targeted Spot Treatment
If you’re dealing with a breakout, you can apply Pharmaceris’ Spot Treatment to bring down any redness and inflammation from your pimples. This is best applied at night, as you don’t want it to interfere with the application of your make-up or sunscreen.
Pop a small amount of product onto each pimple (NOT across the entire face in one go) and monitor for signs of improvement the next morning. Your pimples won’t magically disappear overnight, but they should appear less pronounced, less red, and less inflamed.
