Organic Skincare for Oily Skin
People with oily skin naturally get less lines and wrinkles with age. The biggest mistake people with oily skin can make is to use harsh products that dry up the skin. This only leads to the skin producing even more sebum (what makes the skin oily in the first place) to counteract these drying products.
Hence a simple, gentle, Cleanse, Tone & Moisturise routine using natural and organic skin products is the first fall-proof step.
Cleanse - This is always the foundation of any beauty routine – without adequate cleansing, nothing else works properly. For every day use our Purifying Cleanser will cleanse without over-drying and will also help with any spots, which oily skin can be prone to. We would also recommend our Detoxifying Cleanser for a deep cleanse twice a week. This is a balm cleanser – that detoxes the skin and moisturises it at the same time. It will feel ‘oily’ to the uninitiated – but will not make your skin oilier.
Tone - Do not be tempted to leave out this step. It is vitally important to help to close the pores prior to moisturising and will help remove any residue left behind after cleansing. We have three highly regarded toners to choose from, Clarifying Toner for those with blemish-prone skin, Organic Soothing Toner and Natural Calming Toner. All of these help with open pores too.
- Moisturise - Oily skin needs moisturisation just as much, if not more, than dry skin. Moisture will not only keep it healthy and supple but will also prevent your skin from feeling the need to make excess sebum and become oily. Depending on your age and skin type we offer various moisturisers. Our ‘hero’ Organic Moisturising Day Cream is suitable for most skins and has a special crystal ‘lock in moisture’ structure that keeps skin hydrated all day long with over 190 bioactive ingredients. We also have the Natural 24 hour Light Moisturiser and the Natural 24 Hour Rich Moisturiser, both containing anti-ageing plants extracts.
Oily skin is often combination – having dry patches on the cheeks and oily down the centre panel. We have the solution! Our Rejuvenating Serum is a very special facial oil which balances the sebum and so is good for both dry and oily skin. It has the additional qualities of containing Retinol-A from natural sources, well known for its anti-ageing properties. The large amount of sea buckthorn oil in this also regenerates skin tissue so it is fabulous oil for all skin types.
