oily skin type

Oil is essential and naturally produced by our skin. Some people produce excess oils, creating a shiny layer over the skin that can cause clogged pores and acne. To help with naturally oily skin, stay away from oil-based products and switch to water-based/oil-free products that help prevent clogged pores. Salicylic acid is an essential ingredient for oily skin as it helps combat breakouts and acne-prone skin. 

Natural Ingredients that help oily skin:

1. Tea Tree Oil

  • a gentle astringent, filled with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, that help with germs, fungus, and bacteria. 

2. Honey 

  • an ancient remedy known for its antibacterial agents that help reduce excess oil and clear pores.  It also has natural antiseptic properties that can help acne-prone skin. 

4. Witch Hazel 

  • a natural astringent that can dry out very oily skin: don't use excessively and make sure you moisturize afterwards.  This is a great ingredient to use on problem spots. 

5. Fruit Acids

  • a gentle form of exfoliation to lift dead skin cells and unclog pores.

Skin Care

Cleanse, Tone, and Moisturize

  • a healthy skin care routine helps control oils and acne
  • cleansing helps remove impurities
  • toning normalizes the skin's PH level and smooths skin texture
  • use an oil-free moisturizer that is non-comedogenic

 

Make-up 

Prime, Matte Foundation, and Finishing Powder

  • look for primers that have all-natural/plant-based ingredients to help even out pores and smooth skin texture – this is crucial for oily skin
  • look for a mattifying clean foundation in either powder or liquid form that doesn't clog your pores
  • finishing powder completes your look and helps absorb any excess oils on the skin
