    Tips to Manage Oily Skin

    Our skin produces natural oils (known as sebum) on a daily basis, helping to keep it moisturized and preventing it from drying out. However, individuals with oily skin types overproduce this sebum, resulting in clogged pores and acne blemishes. If you fall under this category, you should follow the steps to below to regain control of your skin.  

    Wash Your Face Daily

    If you aren't doing so already, it's so important to get into the habit of washing your face daily, especially at the end of the day before you go to sleep. Doing so will rinse away excess oil, preventing clogged pores and the troubles they bring. Many dermatologists recommend using a gentle PH-balanced foaming cleanser for oily skin types, as this reduces the risk of irritation. Our Balancing Gel Cleanser and Radiant Cleansing Balm are two cleansers that work well for all skin types and are gentle to use, leaving your skin feeling fresh, balanced, and radiant.  

    Don't Overwash

    Washing your face is essential to controlling oil production. However, washing too frequently will strip these essential oils from your face, leaving it feeling dry and rough. Washing in the morning and at night, while following with a moisturizer is the prefect way to keep your skin looking and feeling it's best.  

    Exfoliate

    Even if you wash your face daily with a premium cleanser, you should still exfoliate to expunge stubborn oils and dead skin cells. Use an exfoliating scrub 1-2 times a week to deep clean your pores. Your skin will feel soft, smooth and look more natural afterwords. Of course, over-exfoliating can have the opposite effect by damaging your pores and making them more susceptible to irritation, so limit yourself to exfoliating 1-2 times per week.  

    Use a Face Mask

    A high-quality face mask is an essential item that everyone with oily skin should have. While there are dozens of different face masks on the market, most of them serve the same basic purpose: to tighten the skin while drawing oils and impurities to the surface. The Clarifying Detox Mask is one such product that will protect your skin from the effects of excess oil. The charcoal in the Mask acts as a magnet, drawing out pore clogging impurities, attracting and absorbing oils from inside the pores.  

    Don't Sleep With Your Makeup

    This may sound like common sense, but it's worth mentioning again that you should never sleep with your makeup still on, especially if you have oily skin. Makeup creates a cover over your pores, sealing in the oils and dead skin. As a result, there's a good chance you'll wake up in the morning with acne blemishes. I alway recommend others to wash their face as soon as you get home for the day...that way your face is clean for the night and you won't be tempted to skip it when you get tired.
