  • What causes oily skin?

    When your sebaceous glands over-produce sebum or oil, it will give the skin an oily or shiny appearance. This can be caused by genetics, hormonal changes, improper cleansing, makeup or other products and your environment. Another surprising fact is that being dehydrated can actually cause oily skin, because if you’re dehydrated, your sebaceous glands can go into overdrive trying to compensate for lack of moisture.
  • What products will make your face less oily?

    Use cleansers, toners, and targeted serums with ingredients like Salicylic Acid, Retinol, and Niacinamide. You can also use weekly masks with oil absorbing ingredients like clay and charcoal. There are also many moisturizers and sunscreens that are now formulated with water-based, oil-free formulas that have a hydrating yet mattifying effect and don’t exacerbate oil production.
  • How do you manage or get rid of oily skin?

    Oily skin can definitely be kept under control with the right products and regimen! Be sure to cleanse morning and night, especially after exercising. Look for oil-free and noncomedogenic skin care products and makeup. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Use a moisturizer or hydrating serum specially targeted toward oily skin. Lastly, pay attention to lifestyle changes such as hormonal fluctuations and increase in stress, as these can sometimes increase your sebum production.
