Let's delve into detoxification tips, skincare recommendations, and the benefits of our Earth Green facial care products tailored for oily and acne-prone skin.

Detox Tips for Clearer Skin

  • Stay Hydrated:
  • Water is essential for flushing out toxins from the body and keeping the skin hydrated. Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day, and consider adding lemon or cucumber slices for an extra detoxifying boost. Herbal teas such as green tea or dandelion root tea also support hydration and detoxification.

  • Eat Clean:
  • Opt for a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. These foods are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support skin health and help eliminate toxins. Incorporate detoxifying foods like leafy greens, berries, garlic, and turmeric into your meals for added benefits.

  • Sweat It Out:
  • Regular exercise is not only good for your overall health but also plays a crucial role in detoxification. Physical activity increases circulation, which helps flush toxins from the body through sweat. Choose activities you enjoy, whether it's jogging, yoga, dancing, or cycling, and aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week.

  • Get Adequate Sleep:
  • Quality sleep is essential for cellular repair and regeneration, which is crucial for maintaining healthy skin. Aim for 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night, and establish a relaxing bedtime routine to promote restful sleep. Avoid screens and stimulating activities before bedtime, and create a comfortable sleep environment conducive to restorative rest.

  • Limit Stress:
  • Chronic stress can wreak havoc on your skin by triggering inflammation and hormonal imbalances. Practice stress-reducing techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, yoga, or spending time in nature. Prioritize self-care activities that promote relaxation and emotional well-being, such as reading, journaling, or taking long baths.

  • Dry Brushing:
  • Dry brushing is a traditional technique that involves using a natural bristle brush to gently exfoliate the skin and stimulate lymphatic drainage. This process helps remove dead skin cells, improve circulation, and promote the elimination of toxins through the lymphatic system. Perform dry brushing before showering, using gentle strokes towards the heart.

  • Skin-Supportive Supplements:
  • Certain supplements can aid in detoxification and support skin health from the inside out. Consider adding supplements like vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, selenium, and omega-3 fatty acids to your daily routine. Always consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplements to ensure they're safe and appropriate for you.

  • Herbal Detox Teas:
  • Ingredients like dandelion root, burdock root, milk thistle, and nettle leaf have traditionally been used to support liver health and promote detoxification. Enjoy a cup of herbal tea in the morning or evening to aid digestion and cleanse your system.

    What Should My Skincare Routine Look Like?

    Every Morning


    Start your day by cleansing your face with a gentle yet effective cleanser to remove excess oil, sweat, and impurities that may have accumulated overnight. Opt for a cleanser specifically formulated for oily or acne-prone skin, such as our Cleansing Oil Rosemary + Citrus. Massage the cleanser onto damp skin in circular motions, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

    Follow cleansing with a toner to balance the skin's pH levels and tighten pores. Our Facial Toner Cucumber + Aloe is perfect for oily skin, as it helps to calm inflammation and reduce excess oil production. Apply the toner to a cotton pad and gently sweep it across your face and neck, avoiding the eye area.

    facial toner for oily and combination skin


    Apply a lightweight serum to address specific skin concerns such as acne, inflammation, or hyperpigmentation. Our Balancing Facial Serum with Jojoba + Grapeseed is ideal for oily or acne-prone skin, as it helps regulate sebum production and promotes skin cell regeneration. Dispense a few drops of serum onto your fingertips and gently pat it onto your skin until fully absorbed.

    facial oil for acne and oily skin


    Finish your morning skincare routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Choose a sunscreen specifically formulated for oily or acne-prone skin, preferably oil-free and non-comedogenic. Apply sunscreen generously to your face, neck, and any exposed areas, and reapply throughout the day as needed.

    Every Evening

    Double Cleansing:

    In the evening, start with a double cleanse to thoroughly remove makeup, sunscreen, and impurities from the day. Begin with an oil-based cleanser like our Cleansing Oil Rosemary + Citrus to dissolve oil-based debris, followed by a water-based cleanser to cleanse the skin's surface. Massage each cleanser onto damp skin, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

    Exfoliation (2-3 times a week):

    Incorporate exfoliation into your evening routine 2-3 times a week to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and prevent breakouts. Choose a gentle exfoliant and avoid harsh physical scrubs, as they can irritate the skin and exacerbate acne.


    Follow treatment with a lightweight moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated overnight without clogging pores. Our Balancing Facial Serum with Jojoba + Grapeseed can also double as a nighttime moisturizer, providing nourishment and balance to oily or acne-prone skin. Apply a small amount evenly to your face and neck, focusing on any dry or irritated areas.

    Spot Treatment (as needed):

    If you have active breakouts or blemishes, apply a spot treatment containing ingredients like benzoyl peroxide or tea tree oil to target individual pimples. Use a cotton swab to apply the treatment directly to the affected areas, avoiding surrounding healthy skin to prevent irritation.
