Cleanse with Care
As part of a healthy skincare regimen, oily skinned people need to be particular about their cleansers. Whether creamy or gel-based, you need to find a cleanser that works for you, that isn’t too harsh or stripping of your skin’s natural oils. The last thing oily skin needs is overcleansing, so we recommend using our Skin + Hair Refining Vitamin C Cleanser twice a day or more, as needed. It will allow you to gently cleanse your scalp and face, without leaving your skin squeaky clean and stripped of natural, necessary sebum.
Tone it Up
Oily skin needs products that help you find a balance. We suggest you consider a toner that can help to soothe and calm the skin while sealing in hydration. Our Skin + Hair Collagen & Rice Water Toner offers gentle, refreshing hydration powered by soothing coconut water, moisture attracting hyaluronic acid, and soothing cucumber and aloe vera to reduce redness and any acne-related inflammation.
Judicious weekly use of a simple clay-based mask can help to absorb excess oil in the T-zone area. Consider adding a mask to your regimen and using it on a weekly basis, so as to minimize oil production without drying out and damaging your skin over time.
Don’t fear Moisture
You may not think you need one, but even if you’re oily, you need a solid night cream. Night creams are potent delivery systems of necessary ingredients for skin in need. If you have oily skin, after cleansing try out our Eye + Lip + Neck Youth Restore Cream. You need moisture that is light, penetrative, and hydrating. Look for moisturizers where water is the first ingredient.
Our formula includes bakuchiol to improve the firmness and elasticity of your skin, aloe vera to soothe and stimulate antioxidant activity, and kokum seed oil to stimulate cellular turnover, revealing fresh, beautiful skin underneath.
In some ways it is probably best to make peace with your skin’s natural tendency to overproduce oil. It is a secret weapon in terms of giving you a youthful, dewy appearance. Learn to love, appreciate, and gently manage your oily skin and it will stand you in excellent stead in the long run.
