Oily skincare routine
I would like to share with you an answer I gave to a customer who needed some help with her oily skin.
This is what the concerned customer asked:
"- My skin can be oily or dry and I don't have really bad skin but I can get small breakouts sometimes so I'm not sure if you would recommend any other products as well. I have also noticed bags under my eyes more lately, is there anything that could possibly help with that?"
The skincare routine I advised her to follow was:
Cleanse – Purifying Citrus Foaming Cleanser – use morning and night
Toner – we don’t do an actual toner but we do a spritz. It is called our Antioxidant Hydrating Mist. People use this as a toner and as an extra anti-oxidant boost. It can be used after cleansing or any time you need a boost (great for the handbag ). This is not really an essential step but if you feel you would like a toner, I would recommend this one to you.
Jojoba – 100% natural Australian jojoba - apply this as a moisturiser for your skin. It can also be used to remove your make-up. It will help to balance out your skin so that the oily and dry patches disappear and your skin becomes more normal. Jojoba does this well as it is not an oil so it won’t clog your pores. It is a liquid wax very similar to the wax your own skin produces. For this reason, it has a natural affinity with the skin and is able to deeply hydrate and balance out the skin as well as dissolve excess sebum in the skin and dissolve blackheads. It should also help to keep breakouts at bay. Apply this at night after cleansing.
- Eye Balm – Cucumber and Guava Firming Eye Balm – this is great at helping with puffiness and bags around the eye area. It is clinically proven to increase the elastin in the skin by up to 90.2% and increase collagen by 81%. It contains a very efficacious blend of cucumber, guava, aloe vera, jojoba, pomegranate and many more natural active ingredients to help cool and soothe the delicate area around the eyes and well as helping to reduce puffiness and fine lines around the eye area.
- Moisturise – you have the Blemish Control serum but once you have finished that, if your skin is ok and not full of blemishes, I would recommend the Redness Reducing Balm as a daily moisturiser. It has a light gel consistency with an aloe vera base. It is a cooling and soothing balm and great for combination and oily skins. It is called Redness Reducing Balm and it will reduce redness in the skin but it is so much more than that. It is full of anitoxidants, very hydrating and full of anti-inflammatory ingredients. Use this in the morning after cleansing.
- Spots? – if you have a pimple or a spot, use the Spot on Pimple Control at night after cleansing and using the Blemish Control Serum.
If you wanted to add another product to your regime, I would highly recommend our Jojoba Bead and Bamboo Facial Exfoliant. It is very important to exfoliate your skin 2-3 times per week to remove the dead skin cells and help your skin to produce new ones. It also helps your skin care work better. You would do this step instead of cleansing morning or night (whichever suits you better) 2-3 times per week.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have further questions about our range.
Good luck with your regime and I am sure your skin will love it!
