There is no better time in your life than now to put on your crown, embrace your wisdom, and conquer the world with your vibrant personality. 

But, if you’re feeling hesitant to do so because of your oily skin, fear not – we’ve got your back. In this article, we will dive into the world of oily skin for mature women and discover how to care for it.

Embrace Your Glowing Goddess

Let’s start with the basics: it’s time to reframe your mindset around oily skin. While you may see it as a curse, it is actually a blessing. Glowing skin never goes out of style. It’s like having a built-in highlighter that gives you that glow that people pile products on their faces to try and achieve. 

So, instead of having a pity party over your oily skin, celebrate its radiance. You’re not shiny; you’re radiant!

How to Cleanse Oily Skin

Cleansing oily skin is a different process than any other type of skin. You want to find the delicate balance of getting rid of excuses oil without stripping your skin of its natural radiance.

The key to this? Finding a gentle cleanser that is meant specifically for oily skin. And don’t go overboard on cleansing. You don’t want to scrub the oil away during your skincare routine. Instead, be gentle and give yourself a little spa session with each cleanse. 

Choosing the Right Moisturizer

You may think, “My skin is oily enough as-is – I don’t need moisturizer.” We are here to tell you that is not true. Even oily skin needs proper hydration. It’s a matter of finding the right moisturizer that will give you that hydration without adding on more oil. 

Think lightweight, oil-free moisturizers that keep your skin nourished. And remember, a little bit goes a long way. 

Make Blotting Your BFF

If you’ve got oily skin, chances are good you are all too familiar with the midday shine. But you don’t have to live in fear of this. Instead, get some oil-blotting papers to toss in your purse for a quick midday pick-me-up. 

Blot them across your T-zone, chin, and other oily-prone areas, and voila! You’re back to your radiant self. 

Makeup for Oily Skin

Makeup is another area where oily skin can really shine (but in the best of ways). You’ll want to find makeup products that are matte or oil-free to help keep your shine at bay. 

Primer is another product that will help manage your shine, as it acts as a type of shield that keeps your makeup in place and keeps the oil from taking control. And powder can be great, too! Just make sure to find one that doesn’t leave your skin looking cakey. 

Diet and Hydration

Most of the time, we think about how what we eat affects our bodies but not our skin. That’s something you want to keep in mind regardless of what skin type you’ve got. 

We aren’t here to tell you to stop eating dessert, but we are here to suggest that maybe you don’t have dessert every night and instead opt for as balanced of a diet as you can. This will do wonders for your skin.

Skin loves foods like fruits, veggies, and clean protein. Oh yeah, and make sure you’re drinking plenty of water! At least half of your body weight in ounces per day is the recommended amount. Your skin needs proper hydration to stay looking its best. 

Stress and Oily Skin

Stress can wreak havoc on your skin. We recognize that it’s impossible to avoid all stressors, but it’s key to finding healthy ways to manage your stress when it comes up. Not only will your skin thank you for this, but your entire body and brain will, too. 

Whether that’s meditation, yoga, or a glass of wine with friends, find things that help calm you down in times of stress to keep your skin looking and feeling its finest. 

Final Thoughts

It’s time to embrace your oily skin with pride – it’s a part of your unique beauty. And that unique beauty starts from the inside. By focusing more on feeling good from the inside out than looking good purely on the outside, we promise you’ll notice a difference in your skin. The proper skincare routine can also give you that added boost, though a positive mindset is where the real magic lies. 

By incorporating healthy habits like cleansing carefully, moisturizing right, sleeping well, pairing your skincare with the right makeup, eating clean, staying hydrated, and reducing stress, your inner beauty will shine through.

Show everyone that age is just a number and that you are beautiful, fierce, and fabulous with your radiant skin. The highest beauty is the kind that is full of confidence and nurtured self-esteem for the incredible woman you are. Oh yeah, and be sure to have fun, too.
