Top Tips for Oily Skin Types!

Top Tips for Oily Skin Types!

Having oily skin can be a challenge. Makeup doesn't stay on properly, I've heard clients describe it as makeup sliding off. Also breakouts and clogged pores can be an issue with oily skin.

A few things to note about oily skin:

  • Oily Skin is a Skin TYPE- although there are things we can do to manage the oil, it is genetic. 
  • Hormones and our age play a roll in how much oil our skin produces.

So what can we do about this? 

    1. Avoid harsh/drying products- its seems like a great idea! Because yes, it works, but only for a while. Soon the skin will start to overproduce oil and you'll have dehydration as well.
    2. Using hydrating products- this doesn't sound like an important step for oily skin! However oily skin needs hydration (water) to keep the skin barrier healthy. 
    3. Regular Exfoliation-This is key to help the skin stay balanced and keeping the oil in check. 
    4. Many people have to use blotting papers to help manage the huge amount of oil that is produced throughout the day.
