by Haylee Westendorf on June 12, 2018


Oily Skin Root Summer Skin Type Must-Haves

Summer is [almost] here! That means gorgeous sunny days and glowing skin… but not always in a good way. With summer ALSO comes hot sweaty days, hats that rub against our oily hairline, and harsh UV rays, all of which wreck havoc on our sensitive skin we’ve finally balanced out after the dry winter weather.

Some of us have naturally oily skin in the first place, and the idea of summer skincare starts to get daunting right about now. All you oily skin beauties - have no fear. Whether your oily skincare concern is acne & pore minimization, dark under eye circles & dullness, anti-aging, or even color correction of dark spots or redness, Root has a new summer go-to product just for you!

To kickoff our Summer Skin Type Must-Have blog series, we’ve taken your Oily Skin Type + Your Skincare Concern and paired it with your NEW FAVORITE Root skincare summer must-have. Show your skin some LOVE and keep glowing… in a good way, all summer long.


1. Oily + Acne & Pore Minimization

Your New FAV: Fresh Face Cleanser

Oily Skin + Acne and Pore Minimization = Root Fresh Face Cleanser

Suffering from increased acne during the summer? Root Fresh Face Cleanser is your new go-to! Organic Aloe Leaf Juice reduces inflammation and balances your skin’s natural oil secretion. Not only does Organic Grapefruit Essential Oil & Organic Jojoba Seed Oil prevent your skin from producing excess oils, but the dynamic duo also aids in skin-brightening! The cleanser’s key ingredient of Activated Charcoal cleanses your face deeply while rebalancing for glowing, refreshed skin and a clearer complexion. Not to mention, Organic Grapefruit Essential Oil smells amazing, but also is a natural astringent which shrinks your pores and tightens skin! WIN WIN!

Use: Gently massage onto damp skin morning and night. Rinse. Follow with Root Fresh Face Moisturizer.

2. Oily + Anti-Aging

Your New FAV: Pomegranate Antioxidant Serum

Oily Skin Type + Anti-Aging = Pomegranate Antioxidant Serum

Pomegranate Extract naturally improves the amount of hydration within your skin and boosts collagen production, making Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Serum the perfect product for those looking to balance oily skin and decrease signs of aging. Plus, oily skin beauties will LOVE that it's so lightweight! Organic Aloe Leaf Juice gently soothes and softens skin while fighting off daily toxins that cause premature aging. Vitamin C, a key ingredient in Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Serum helps to mitigate problems both before and after they occur. It acts as a shield to your skin, keeping those harsh pollutions out! This serum is truly full of POWERHOUSE ingredients for those with oily skin looking for anti-aging benefits.

Use: Apply a pea size amount of the Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Serum to freshly washed face. Massage all over morning and night. Follow with Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Moisturizer.

3. Oily + Dark Under Eye Circles & Dullness

Your New FAV: Organic Peppermint Toner

Oily Skin Type + Dark Under Eye Circles and Dullness = Organic Peppermint Toner

Root Organic Peppermint Toner is the best choice for someone with oily skin looking to battle dark under eye circles and dullness. Organic Peppermint Leaf aids in preventing oil secretion and brightening the complexion, therefore lessening acne, blemishes, and dark circles. The mix of Organic Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Maple Cane, Orange Peel and Lemon Peel work to improve the skin’s texture and replenish dead skin cells, leaving the face rejuvenated and naturally glowing. Talk about R&R! Root Organic Peppermint Toner gives tired, dull skin new life and gently soothes inflammation.

Use: Shake well before each use. Apply with cotton ball all over freshly washed face and neck. Follow with Root Pomegranate Antioxidant Serum and Root Fresh Face Moisturizer.

4. Oily + Color Correction of Dark Spots or Redness

Your New FAV: Organic Peppermint Mud Mask

Oily Skin Type + Dark Spots and Redness = Organic Peppermint Mud Mask

Do you have oily skin looking to detox and rid your face of dark spots or redness? There is no doubt Root Organic Peppermint Mud Mask is going to be your new FAVORITE skincare product this summer! With key ingredients of Activated Charcoal, Bentonite Clay, and Kaolin Clay, the mask pulls out harsh everyday toxins and tones skin. Use as an overnight spot treatment on troublesome areas and dark spots, as the Organic White Willow Bark Extract alleviates irritation and discoloration. Pomegranate Extract leaves your skin tingling with rejuvenation and tightening. #Queen! The amazing combination of Peppermint Essential Oil, Vitamins E, C, B5 and B3 work together to soothe and brighten.

Use: Apply all over freshly washed face. Allow mask to dry (about 30 minutes). To remove, gently massage face with water and rinse. It’s best to use product within 3 months or store in fridge to keep fresh longer.
