Oily skin can feel burdensome. While dewiness is always great, oiliness leads to clogged pores, blemishes, and makeup that never lasts the day.
The good news is, there’s something you can do about it. Oily skin and acne are not curses you have to live with forever. With the right products, you can enjoy a more balanced complexion every morning, straight into the afternoon and evening.
How? With the right skincare products to reduce oily skin and acne.
Causes of Oily Skin and Acne
What causes oily skin, and how can you prevent acne?
While some complexions are naturally oilier than others, an overproduction of sebum (the body’s natural emollient) is usually the result of an imbalance. This may result from harsh chemicals and drying agents in skincare products, which encourage the skin to overproduce sebum. It can also result from:
Whatever the case, treating oily skin appropriately can keep pores more clear. This, in turn, prevents the blockage that causes acne. That means choosing the right products is incredibly important.
Safe and Ethical Skincare Solutions
Perhaps the secret to crafting an oil-reducing routine is to nourish and hydrate your skin rather than dry it out further.
The right products to reduce oiliness and increase balance have several characteristics in common. They are free of parabens, fragrances, and surfactants. They don’t test on animals. Ideally, they’ve also earned the Clean at Sephora checkmark, which indicates they’ve met the highest ethical and quality standards.
Look for products that contain glycolic acid, for instance, which cleanses your pores without stripping away the skin’s barrier and nutrients. Glycolic acid is also great for gently removing excess surface oils, pore-clogging daily debris, and aging pollutants.
Similarly, foaming facial wash can help nourish and hydrate skin while maintaining the vital balance that reduces oil and breakouts.
