It is summertime a.k.a the time for oily skin people to prepare themselves for the onslaught of excess sebum, acne, pimples, greasy skin and other skin flare-ups. While with everything else, it is about staying in and using your sunscreen to battle the summer heat, greasy skin and the constant flare-ups can be a sign of oily skin. Knowing your skin type can be a big blessing in choosing the right path for your skincare routine. Which brings us to the next set of questions – “What are the potential reasons for oily skin?” and “How do you tackle them to reap the benefits of good skincare?”
Before this question is answered, it’s important to understand that every skin type has its own pros & cons and having oily skin is not a bad thing.
In likely cases, environmental conditions, stress, hormonal changes and diet are some external factors that can flare up the oil glands in your skin which are otherwise known as sebaceous glands. However, the one of the most common reasons for oily skin is genetics.
In simpler terms, oily skin generates more oil than other skin types, resulting in excess sebum, shine, clogged pores that make your face more prone to acne, pimples and blackheads.
A good cleanser for oily skin is the first step to keep the oil at bay. Simple’s Refreshing facial wash is a holy grail for oily skin.
Next would be a serum. A serum with hemp seed oil is a great addition to sooth inflammation. It’s a common misconception that oils aren’t good for oily skin. However, using the right amount (just 2-3 drops) improves skin elasticity, and counteracts the overproduction of sebum. A great start would be the Simple Booster Serum with 10% Hemp seed oil + B3.
During summertime, it’s best to look for a face cream that’s either water-based or gel-based. You can even choose a face lotion that has a thin, runny consistency.
Foods to avoid:
Here’s how moisturizer plays a vital role for oily skin – massaging your face and neck with a lightweight face cream not only restores hydration and gives your face a healthy glow it also regulates the oil secretion. Trust us, your future-self will thank you.
