It’s features include large pores that over-produce oil meaning skin is prone to shine, congestion and potentially spots. Oily skin is your natural skin type and while it can cause problems in your early years you’ll be grateful for it in later years as oily skin ages well. Excess oiliness is also hormonal and can be exacerbated by your hormone cycle and physical and emotional stress.
How we treat
A common way to reduce oiliness is to use products which degrease. Problems of inflammation come from stripping the skin. Instead work from within. Also learn to love your skin type as it ages well.
Wash Your Face After Working Out
Clear skin of sweat and debris to prevent congestion.
Don't over wash or over exfoliate
Over-washing to remove oil will cause more harm than good. You don't want squeeky clean - just enough to remove excess oil, make up, sunscreen and grime. Find a frequency balance that works for you. Your skin will love AHA rich exfoliators.
Slow down your oil production
Your skin type is oily or certain triggers like hormones and stress can increase activity within the sebaceous glands. Vitamin B is brilliant for calming over-active sebaceous glands.
Choose hydration over oils
Your skin is already naturally rich in lipids so choose a lightweight moisturiser that will boost hydration - humectants such as hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, glycerin.
