Oily Skin - Oily skin means your skin produces excess oil, which tends to clog your pores. This surplus oil on your skin could lead to breakouts and acne. However, the advantage is that your skin is less likely to age in the long run. The natural oils protect the skin barrier function, which means you’ll look youthful for a long time! In terms of products, look for lighter, more hydrating formulas which are more water-based. Regular exfoliation with ingredients like salicylic acid, and double cleansing twice a day can help to remove impurities and excess sebum to balance the moisture levels of your skin.
Acne - Acne is caused by a variety of factors- genetics, excessive stress, hormonal imbalances, poor lifestyles, and bad habits. Sometimes, it is beyond our control which is why we recommend practices like double cleansing and regular exfoliation. Ingredients like salicylic acid, tea- tree, Witch Hazel are the ones you should look out for, due to their calming and anti-inflammatory properties. Rosehip oil, green tea can work wonders too due to their acne-fighting properties, as well as vitamin C which aids in brightening scars. Hang in there, better days are just around the corner!
