How To Treat Oily Skin

How To Treat Oily Skin
  1. Cleansing: Use a gentle cleanser specifically formulated for oily skin. Avoid harsh soaps or cleansers that strip away too much oil, as this can actually cause your skin to produce more oil. Cleanse your face twice a day, in the morning and evening, to remove excess oil and impurities. Our Harmony cleanser is a perfect balance of cleansing oil, without drying out the skin. 

  2. Exfoliation: Regular exfoliation can help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. Use a gentle exfoliator which can penetrate the pores and remove excess oil. However, be careful not to overdo it, as excessive exfoliation can irritate the skin and trigger more oil production.

  3. Toning: Use an alcohol-free toner after cleansing to help balance the skin's pH levels and remove any remaining residue. Our Silver Reboot toner is a favorite for oily and acne prone clients, as it has anitmicrobial properties.

  4. Moisturizing: Yes, even oily skin needs moisturizing. Opt for lightweight, oil-free moisturizers or gel-based products that won't clog your pores. Moisturizing helps maintain the skin's hydration levels, which can actually reduce oil production. Look for products labeled as non-comedogenic, meaning they won't clog pores. Our Face the Hydration is a great daily moisturizer. 

  5. Sun protection: Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, even on cloudy days. Contrary to popular belief, the sun does not dry out oily skin; it can actually stimulate oil production. Look for oil-free or mattifying sunscreens to avoid a greasy appearance.

  6. Avoid touching your face: Touching your face with your hands can transfer oil and dirt, clogging pores and potentially leading to breakouts. Try to minimize touching your face throughout the day.

  7. Use oil-absorbing products: Oil-absorbing sheets or blotting papers can be handy for quickly removing excess oil throughout the day without disturbing your makeup. Patting the oily areas gently with these sheets can help control shine.

  8. Choose makeup wisely: If you wear makeup, opt for oil-free or non-comedogenic products. Look for water-based or powder foundations and avoid heavy, greasy formulas that can clog pores. Remember to remove your makeup thoroughly before going to bed.

  9. Watch your diet: While diet doesn't directly cause oily skin, certain foods high in refined carbohydrates and unhealthy fats can contribute to inflammation, which may worsen oil production. A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins can help support healthy skin.

  10. Manage stress: Stress can trigger hormone imbalances that may contribute to oil production. Practice stress management techniques such as exercise, meditation, or deep breathing to help keep stress levels in check.

Working with an esthetican and monthly facials is also beneficial for more professional treatment and continued guidence on the best home care practices for your skin.
