Oily skin naturally produces excess sebum. For some this creates a sheen on the skin, while others experience blemishes from oil buildup. Skin needs to be balanced in order to minimize oil production without drying out.
You should clean your oily skin twice a day, once in the morning and the other just before going to bed. Use warm water with a suitable, natural gentle face wash (gel, foam, moisturizing soap...). Madara organic Micellar Water or Deep Cleansing Oil DHC are perfect to remove makeup while nourishing your complexion. Konjac Sponge Puff with Bamboo Charcoal is an effective natural treatment for acne sufferers. It deep cleans skin pores to eliminate blackheads and dirt whilst absorbing excess oils and toxins.
Toners and floral waters supplement cleansing. They gently and thoroughly remove dirt particles, skincare product residues and makeup and excess grease from the skin, rebalance, tone, purify and refresh the skin.
(Forget overly irritant or abrasive soap- or alcohol-based products that risk causing a rebound effect: the skin defends itself, becomes imbalanced and produces more sebum.)
Masks & Peeling
Oily skin naturally produces excess sebum and needs to be balanced in order to minimize oil production without drying out. Exfoliation should be an essential step in all beauty routines, but for oily skin it’s a must as it’ll help rid the face of any dirt, debris or dead skin that’s blocking the pores. For oily skin, we also recommend doing at least two masks a week – one detoxifying mask and one soothing mask.
Using a daily moisturizer will help to rebalance moisture levels and oil production of oily skin. Gel moisturizers have a water-like texture and are super lightweight. They contain the lowest amount of oil, waxes, and emulsifiers.
