The Best Clean Beauty Routine for Oily & Active Skin

If anyone knows a thing or two about active and oily skin, it’s me. I’ve been on every drug under the sun (including accutane) to get rid of my acne and I’ve tried every cream on the market.

Clean beauty for oily skin

As you may know, oily skin is often a symptom of chronically dry skin (more about that HERE).

I can vouch for this skin balancing clean beauty combo:



  • Purifying Charcoal Mask and/or Cleansing Balm make for a great “spot treatments”.
  • Balancing Face Oil #3, which pairs nicely with the charcoal products (which are naturally drying). Face oils work wonders on acne-prone skin, trust me on this one! Don’t believe me? Use this at night and watch your face naturally balance out over time. Plus check out this article I wrote about face oils and oily skin.
  • Rose Water Toning Spray (non-drying) or the Balancing Charcoal Mist (peppermint scent) are great ways to mattify your face during the day. I love keeping this at my desk for a midday spritz!


Acne and active skin are frustrating, but know that the right skin care routine can really help.

Take a chance and give these products a try and let me know what you think!
