If you have **Oily Skin**, this is for you!
Oily skin is a common problem for many. If you have oily skin, you'll most obviously notice an overproduction in sebum, the clinical term for your skin's oil, but you'll also be more prone to other symptoms. Because an overproduction in oil causes pores to clog, oily skin is also commonly associated with:
Oily skin tends to be made worse by puberty, stress and humidity, but did you know that taking excessive measures to remove oil from your skin also contributes to the problem?
We tend to think of oil as a problem, but without it, your complexion would become dry, flat and saggy. Sebum protects the skin and keeps it healthy as well as naturally plump and vibrant.
The answer lies in using skin care products that remove excess surface oils without over-drying. By allowing your skin to maintain its own balancing moisture, you reduce the excess production of oil your body uses to overcompensate after a complete removal of oils from the skin.
Tips for accomplishing this balancing act:
Use a toner and not an astringent. Toners gently restore the pH of the skin while an astringent contains alcohol, which causes skin to dry out. Apply a charcoal mask to draw out dirt, bacteria and toxins from pores. Charcoal masks also provide gentle and natural exfoliation, leaving skin smooth without over-drying.
A gentle peel can go a long way. Use one of our gentle chemical peels that incorporate lactic acid derived from milk or glycolic acid derived from sugar to remove bacteria and impurities from pores while promoting cell turnover. The result is a fresh complexion that's free of excess oils and blemishes.
After using products designed to draw out oil, dirt and toxins, replenish your skin with the right kind of moisture. While adding moisture back in might seem counterintuitive, products like jojoba and emu oil actually mimic the natural components of your own sebum. Your skin will readily absorb these oils, restoring balance to stressed skin that's previously been stripped of moisture.
