What is "Oily" Skin
Skin is a beautiful thing. Not just the way it looks but how hard it works to stay healthy and protect you from the assaults of the world around you. However, this beautiful system can get out of balance, and the results can be frustrating.
One of the ways skin protects itself is by producing sebum, or oil. This helps protect you from some kinds of bacteria, and it traps moisture in the skin, keeping it hydrated and supple.
But sometimes, the production of sebum is too active, resulting in excess oil, leaving the skin looking shiny and feeling slick. This can block pores and increase the risk of acne. It's also hard to keep makeup in place on oily skin.
However, a good skincare routine can not only help you battle oil but also get your skin closer to a beautiful, healthy balance.
Skincare Products for Oily Skin
The first step in any skincare routine is washing your face. For oily skin, the best choice is a gel cleanser that will remove oil and impurities without washing away moisture and disrupting your skin barrier. We recommend our Clear & Bright Cleanser, which gently exfoliates to lift away pore-clogging dead skin cells and excess oil, all while protecting your skin with soothing botanicals.
Follow cleansing with a toner to balance the skin and add a dose of moisture. Fresh Hydrating Mist provides light hydration along with botanical extracts to tamp down inflammation and boost cell turnover.
An antioxidant serum is a good way to give your skin a concentrated dose of antioxidant protection. C Perfection Serum contains 14% Vitamin C, a clinically proven concentration of this superhero ingredient. It helps to even your skin tone, fight signs of aging, and support healing for healthy, glowing skin.
Don't forget to moisturize! Oily skin can still get dehydrated, so be sure to support it with a lightweight moisturizer that will protect your skin barrier. Simply Nourished is like a cool drink of water for your skin. It contains extracts from beets and sugar cane to support healthy bacteria for a happy, balanced microbiome.
Skincare Routine for Oily Skin: Important Things to Remember
Oily skin tends to be more resilient than other types, but there are some important things to remember to keep it looking its best. Here are some tips to give oily skin the care it deserves.
Don't forget to exfoliate!
Oily skin is especially prone to clogged pores and breakouts. Keep your skin clear with regular, gentle exfoliation.
Keep skin clean
To keep your pores clean and happy, be sure to stay on top of cleansing. Wash your face in the morning and at night, but also give it extra attention whenever you get hot and sweaty. An extra wash after working out will help keep excess oil at bay.
It's easy to get so focused on reducing oil that you strip your skin of moisture. Remember that sebum's job is to hold moisture in the skin. Dehydrated skin can respond by creating even more sebum in an effort to hang onto moisture. Overly drying, harsh products can damage the skin barrier, making it even harder to hang onto moisture. Give your skin a break with nourishing, lightweight moisturizer.
