Will using a face oil make me break out?

No, unless you're acne-prone. If your skin is already oily, using an oil can clog pores, which ups the potential for breakouts. This applies for both mineral oil and plant-based oils such as sunflower and olive. However, if you have dry skin, an oil can help lock in moisture; use it under or in lieu of a moisturiser.

Do I need to wear sunscreen if my makeup has an SPF?

Yes. You can't rely on makeup alone. To get adequate sun protection, you have to apply an even coat all over your face. If you just put on foundation wherever you need coverage, you won't get an even layer. Plus, makeup sits on skin's top layer and wears off quickly, whereas a moisturiser's chemical sunscreen is absorbed by skin, making it more effective.

What are the best vitamins for glowing skin?

Vitamins B, C, and E are some of the best vitamins for glowing skin. Together, they can prevent premature skin ageing, reduce sun damage, enhance tone and texture, improve moisture, and strengthen immunity.

How should I layer my skincare products?

Following the right way to layer skincare can target all your skin concerns effectively and enhance your complexion. As a rule of thumb, progress from thin to thicker product textures. Accordingly, the correct order to follow would be cleanser – exfoliant – toner – serum – moisturiser – sunscreen. (But make sure you’re only exfoliating one to two times a week maximum!)

Can I control oil production on my face?

Yes. Start by incorporating a light-weight and oil-free moisturiser into your skincare routine. While many believe that oily skin doesn’t require moisturising, this is absolutely wrong. Oftentimes, your skin produces excess oils to get rid of dryness. So, when your skin is moisturised enough, it won't feel the need to produce excess oil and sebum. Additionally, avoid eating junk, processed, and sugary foods.

Why is my skin dull if I drink lots of water?

While drinking lots of water is great for the skin, many other factors are responsible for dullness. For instance, how little you sleep, what you eat, where you live, and the skincare routine you follow. Some remedies for dull skin we swear by are using collagen-boosting face serums, eating foods rich in fatty acids, and steam cleaning your face.
