How To Correct Oily Skin

The best products for taming oil and unclogging pores.

Of all the skin types, those with oily skin tend to have more complicated side effects from excess sebum such as acne breakouts, enlarged pores and irritation. This occurs when the sebaceous glands in the skin are overactive, which can be caused by hormonal fluctuations, genetics, pollution, humidity and even over-washing the face. However, with the right skincare arsenal you can tame that oil slick and achieve a balanced, radiant complexion.

Here are some must-have products:

1. Gentle Cleanser

Although your initial instinct might be to use an intense cleanser with lots of active ingredients to deeply cleanse the skin, we’d actually recommend you opt for a non-abrasive cleanser. This should be one such as our Calm Down Cleanser that effectively removes dirt and excess oil without stripping the skin of its natural moisture. You’ll still get that fully clean feeling without any burning, redness or excessively drying the skin.

2. Oil-Free Moisturizer

Yes, even oily skin needs hydration! This is a step most commonly skipped for those with excess oil, because many people think this will only make the condition worse. However, our skin needs proper hydration to maintain balance to the skin barrier and minimize irritation. Skip the heavy creams and try the Ultra Lite Aloe Facial Cream, which contains soothing ingredients such as glycerin and squalane to effectively moisturize and aloe leaf juice to calm redness.

3. Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C is not only an effective anti-aging tool to protect against hyperpigmentation and fine lines; it is a powerhouse ingredient that works wonders for oily skin types. Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals, which are molecules that wreak havoc on skin cells, leading to inflammation. It works by shielding the skin from environmental damage which may be contributing to excess oil production. Our Super C Serum also contains brightening and collagen-synthesis properties to help restore the skin back to a more neutral environment, which is the cornerstone to improving oily skin.

While oily skin may have its challenges, there are ways to combat visible signs and symptoms with the right care and products.
