When the sebaceous glands in the skin make too much sebum – the result, oily skin. Sebum, a waxy, oily substance that naturally protects and hydrates the skin is vital to keeping it healthy, but too much sebum can lead to oily skin, clogged pores, and even acne.
Managing oily skin can be tough, but creating the right skin care regiment can make a difference. Here are 4 ways you can control your oily skin.
Cleanse frequently. Not cleansing your face regularly is a guaranteed way to lose the oily skin battle. Cleansing reduces the amount of oil on the skin, which helps to prevent nasty breakouts. Wash your face at least twice daily with Black Tea Honey & Aloe Facial Cleanser to clean and balance oily skin.
Use a face toner. Toners remove excess dirt and makeup that can clog pores. It also balances the pH of your skin and helps control oil. Our Clearing Botanical Toner removes dirt and oil without drying your skin.
Apply a facial mask. Keeping your skin balanced and free of excess oil is an important step in controlling oily skin. Applying our Papaya & Pineapple Daily Clear Mask weekly will help you balance the skin, clear out dirt, shrink the pores, and dissolve dead skin cells.
Use a moisturizer. While this may seem counterintuitive, it's one of the best things you can do to control oily skin. If the skin is stripped of natural oils, it kicks into overproduction mode and causes sebum buildup. For people with very oily skin, a non-greasy moisturizer helps replenish your skins natural oils and keeps it hydrated and protected. Citrus Neossance Face Oil is great for oily, acne-prone skin.
