Oily skin is the result of genetics as well as hormonal changes. Even though natural oils are what keeps the skin moisturised, those with excess can see the process go into overdrive, especially if they have larger pores too. The bigger the pores, the more active the oil glands which means they’ll also secrete more too.
Those that produce a higher amount of sebum that flows from inside the epidermis to the surface of the skin and through the pores and hair follicles. When excess oil is produced, it can expand the skin’s pores which results in blockages that can also become pimples and blemishes.
In order to care for oily skin, you should consider products that contain powerful ingredients that can sufficiently dry out the skin. Due to the fact that excess sebum can also cause acne and if you struggle with whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples, you may also have to search for products that are acne-fighting.
Depending on how mild or moderate your skin is, you can use products containing ingredients such as salicylic acid, DIM, vitamin A (Retinol, retinal, Retinaldehyde), Tea Tree Oil (natural antiseptic), Glycolic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, and others. All these ingredients are hugely important for oily skin and you will find them in our Oily skin range of products.
