Glowing skin in the morning that inevitably transforms into an oil slick by afternoon – sound familiar? Oily skin is the result of overactive sebaceous glands that can be caused by a number of factors, including hormones, weather, and overzealous cleansing. And while it may feel like a hellish condition when you are blotting away oil on a regular basis, remember that those with oily skin tend to have more youthful looking skin! Additionally, there are plenty of helpful ingredients to balance sebum production. Do not shy away from oils; in fact hazelnut oil, jojoba oil, and argan oil are wonderful at replenishing, while creating balance. And stop stripping your skin with harsh soaps! This only causes skin to overcompensate by producing more oil. Choose gentle, non-irritating cleansers formulated for your face alone!
Oily skin does not have to rule your life. Remain patient and consistent. More importantly, experiment with your skin care ritual until you find products that you love and that love your skin back!
