Oily skin can be a real bother, with that shine and potential pimples causing daily frustration. But don't worry, there are ways to help you get control of your oily skin. In this blog, we'll show you how to spot oily skin, share the best ingredients to deal with it, and provide a skincare routine just for you.

How to Recognize Oily Skin:

Excess Shine: Shiny or greasy skin is a sign of excess sebum production.

Enlarged Pores: Oily skin often means more visible pores, which can lead to blackheads and acne.

Frequent Breakouts: An abundance of oil can contribute to frequent acne breakouts and blemishes.

Uneven Skin Texture: Oily skin may also exhibit a rough, uneven texture due to the accumulation of oil and sebum.

Best Ingredients for Oily Skin:

Salicylic Acid: Known for its exfoliating properties, salicylic acid unclogs pores, reduces oiliness, and prevents breakouts.

Witch Hazel: An astringent that tightens the skin and minimizes pore size, reducing oiliness.

Tea Tree Oil: With its natural antimicrobial properties, Tea Tree Oil helps combat acne and control excess oil.

Our Fix It Spot Treatment is enriched with these 3 ingredients.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3): Helps regulate sebum production and minimize pore size, promoting smoother skin.

Hyaluronic Acid: This lightweight hydrator balances moisture levels without adding excess oil.

Gentle Cleansing: Use a mild, foaming cleanser to clean your face and remove excess oil without overstripping your skin.

Exfoliate Regularly: Incorporate a Salicylic acid-based exfoliant into your routine to keep pores clear. No need to use it every day, as it will damage your skin. Once or twice a week will do.

Oil-Free Moisturizer: Contrary to popular belief, oily skin does need to be hydrated. Opt for a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated without adding extra oil.
