Oily skin occurs due to an overproduction of sebum in the oil glands. You may have shiny areas corresponding to the areas of your cheeks, nose and forehead.
Oily skin is problematic – it usually looks greasy, thick, coarse and shiny, has enlarged pores and tends to break into acne.
How to Care for Oily Skin
Some good news! Oily skin is not prone to ageing and wrinkling as much as other skin concerns. Careful cleaning, minimising stress and carbohydrate consumption, avoiding high amounts of dairy and using the correct skincare can all help in improving the quality of oily skin.
Your Regular Skincare Regime
Ensure you cleanse your face morning and night. Our Revitalising Foaming Cleanser removes make up and oil, unclogs pores and is full of Aloe Vera Juice to condition your skin to soothe and calm without irritating redness caused from acne. We recommend double cleansing both in the morning and at night. Your morning cleanse will remove any build up of oils and bacteria built up on your face while you. By double cleansing in the evening you remove the entire days worth of clogged up pollution, makeup, dust, oil and bacteria from your pores and follow with another cleanse to thoroughly clean your pores and give you a deep clean of your skin to ensure you are left with clean, fresh and reduced oil.
A serum that contains Salicylic Acid (a BHA) to deeply exfoliate your skin and decongest your pores will help to combat oily skin and acne prone skin. Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) also works to reduce excess sebum production to prevent breakouts and keep your skin shine free. Our Ultimate Serum infuses these active ingredients deep into the layers of your skin to clear congestion and control lipid oxidation for that clear, fresh skin feeling.
A moisturiser designed for combination and oily skin will help to reduce inflammation and pore size and leave your skin shine free throughout your day. Our Daily Moisturiser Combination is specifically formulated for oily skin and includes Enantia Chlorantha Bark Extract which is naturally rich in protoberberines and oleanic acid to help with the reduction of sebum secretion, shine control and pore size.
