Everyone’s skin is different, we all have specific needs and problems to target, but in general, there are three different skin types.
If you notice your face gets “oily” shortly after cleansing, or if you think you have excess sebum, you probably have oily skin. Oily skin is one of the most common but also the most problematic skin types to have, but don’t worry, it can be easy to fix!
Identifying the causes of oily skin
The main thing to focus on when treating oily skin is sebum. Sebum is a substance produced by the sebaceous glands, predominant on your back, chin, and forehead.
Hormones are what influence sebum production the most. An equilibrated sebum level is beneficial for the skin, which is why the target should be to control it, no to eliminate it.
Habits for better skin
When treating sebum, most people would think that strong cleansers and not using a moisturizer are the way to go. However, this is wrong! Let us teach you.
A deep cleanser isn’t always the answer, as oily skin can often be mistreated and therefore turn sensible. Look for skincare with lighter and gentler ingredients, and cleanse day and night. The Detox Face Wash is an excellent option.
Moisturizing is vital for every skin type, even oily ones. Skipping a moisturizer will cause your skin to produce more sebum, trying to hydrate your skin. Choose a light moisturizer or serum that doesn’t clog your pores. The Detox Serum is a great choice!
For a deeper cleanse, exfoliate once or twice a week, depending on your needs and the season. Try the Detox Face Scrub for this matter.
Don’t give up after trying products that didn’t work. Everyone’s unique, and every skin has different reactions.
If your skin is oily in some parts and drier in others, you might have combination skin. In this case, treat the oilier parts of your face as instructed before, giving a different approach to the less oily areas.
