If you’ve oily, sensitive & blemish-prone skin, you’re in for a treat! Jolynn, also known as My Beauty Road, will be sharing her most personal skincare secrets for a flawless skin.

1. Always Check The Ingredients List

Don't fully believe all the fancy marketing claims stated on the packaging. Learn more about the ingredients contained in a product to better gauge if the product will truly deliver what it promises.

2. Always Hydrate Your Skin, Whether You Have Oily Skin or Not

As someone with oily, blemish-prone skin since 12, blotting papers and products containing very high percentages of "bad" alcohol claiming to mattify the skin were my go-tos. I've learned over the years, they do more harm than good to oily skin, stripping the skin off its natural oils, making it think it lacks oil, and thus producing even more grease on one's face. Feed your skin with hydrating products, and your skin will thank you - especially in the long run!

3. Use Tissue Paper as Your Oil Blotter

I know how frustrating it is to see a greasy face when you look in the mirror. Don't turn to oil blotters! Instead, take a piece of tissue, tear out a ply out of the 2 or 3 plies and blot away! Trust me, you'll see those greasiness on the ply just like a regular oil blotter, but without the harmfulness of the latter.


4. Apply Sunscreen Every Single Day, Because Prevention is Always Better Than Cure

The detrimental effects of UV rays (especially sun spots and pigmentation) only surface to our skin years from now, so leave no room for regrets. Start applying your sunscreen religiously if you still think it's one of those skincare steps that can be skipped on hectic mornings!

5. If You Only Have Enough Money To Invest In One Luxury Skincare Product, Get Yourself a Great Serum

Serums contain the highest concentration of active ingredient(s) in a skincare range. As such, while a serum is usually the most expensive product of the lot, it also delivers the best results. Seal it in with your favourite moisturiser for better efficacy.
