What is Oily / Combination Skin?
Oily skin care needs to address the great contrast that is Oily / Combination Skin, as what presents on the face may appear dry in some corners, while free-flowing oil collects in others. This is most often seen in the T-zone of the face—across the forehead, down the nose and chin—and at the same time the cheeks may appear dry or malnourished. It’s important to have a pure routine that factors in these extremes and embraces oily skin care, specifically. We have addressed this contrast with oily skin care products created to nurture and balance the skin, while subsequently calming excess skin lipids.
How to Nourish Oily Skin
It’s commonly thought that oily skin needs little moisture, but this is not the case for skin prone to excess secretions. Although most wouldn’t think it, oily skin can often be the source of dry, malnourished skin. When skin is stripped of its natural barrier oils and pH balance—by using harsh cleansers and soaps—the skin cannot function as it normally would, and goes into overdrive to create further oils to nourish what it thinks is dry skin! When we nourish the skin with the right cleanser, the right mist, and the right moisturiser—products specifically designed for oily skin care—we encourage the skin to find it’s natural balance, once again.
What is the Best Oily Skin Care?
Our hero oily skin care products are the foundation of the 3 Step System for Oily / Combination skin. Foaming Cleanser is a soap-free formulation loaded with Noni Extract, Green Tea and Aloe Vera to remove impurities from the skin while helping to protect from free radical damage. Energizing Citrus Mist is loved for its ability to balance, revitalise and calm the skin with its blend of Mandarin and Lemongrass Essential Oils. Purifying Moisturizer is a light-weight cream drawing on the properties of Aloe Vera, Lemon and Green Tea Extracts to control excess oil yet hydrate at the same time.
Our Noni Glow Face Oil is a superbly light oil blend to motivate a luminescent glow with thanks to Noni Extract, Rosehip, Pomegranate, and Sea Buckthorn Oils; nourishing the skin without weighing it down. We also hail the ‘megafruit’ combo in AHA Age-Defying Facial Exfoliator for its innate way of slowing and sloughing dead skin that causes conflict within the skin. We advise to exfoliate every third day and pair weekly with the Clay Purifying Mask, to encourage balance, harmony and a healthy glow!
