How should I care for oily skin?

1. Sebum is what causes oily skin

If the skin on your face tends to look shiny, particularly in the T-zone, then no question about it, your skin is producing too much sebum. This may be genetic, or it may be down to external factors such as stress, unhealthy lifestyle, hormonal imbalance or an overly harsh beauty routine.

2. The perfect beauty routine for keeping oily skin under control

The best way to tackle oily skin is to use products that work to gently remove excess sebum. Morning and night, start your routine with a suitable cleanser: this step is key to achieving healthy skin. Once your face is cleansed, apply the PORE CONTROL SERUM to your skin. Containing grapevine flower cell extract, this serum is perfect for preventing pores from dilating as a result of excess sebum production. Next, moisturise your skin with a light, non-greasy moisturiser to purify and mattify skin. Finally, once or twice a week before bed, treat your skin to the SOS PURE MASK, with purifying green and white clay and organic alpine willow herb extract. This mask's clay-based formula purifies and re-balances skin for a healthier, fresher and clearer complexion in just 10 minutes.
