It will depend on how your skin feels. If your skin tends to be oily in the morning, then use a foaming cleanser. If it's under control, a light foaming cleanser. Yes, there is a difference between both of them, as one will focus on controlling the oil-flow, while the other will also rebalance the skin’s hydration level. The difference between them will completely depend on their ingredients and texture.
Continue with your normal morning regime. The skeleton of your skincare regime should include a Foaming Cleanser, antioxidant serum & a moisturizer that already contains SPF.
Pre-workout cleansing should not even be a question for this skin type, as on top of pollution particles, unwanted substances as well as remaining make-up and SPF, those oily skin will have more sebum and congestion at the end of the day. Therefore, make sure to properly remove your make-up with a gel or foaming cleanser to eliminate that greasy “shield”.
Ask yourself the same question as before: Are you planning to go out and re-wear make-up, or go straight back home watch a movie and chill?
If make-up is part of the plan, keep it simple with a foaming cleanser & a light moisturiser. After your night out, make sure to do your full skincare regime
If you’re planning to head home, we would recommend simply cleansing your skin and then applying a hydrating serum. Once home, continue with your full evening skincare regime, which should involve a double cleansing routine, an exfoliation step (3x week), targeted serum (hydrating or retinoid) & a light moisturizer.
