My skin is oily! What should I do?

We can honestly say that oily skin is not the end of the world. There are solutions that make your life easier.

Oily skin is caused by excess sebum collecting on the skin’s surface. Some skin types naturally produce more sebum than others, but there are also external factors like stress, diet and pollution that can make skin feel greasy. This leads to shiny areas, especially on the T-zone of the face. How to control oily skin!

1. Deeply cleanse your skin
We cannot say it enough: washing your skin is the bare minimum, particularly if you have oily skin.

In fact, you need to cleanse it every morning and night – but be careful not to strip your skin of what it needs.

We recommend gentle products because your skin produces more sebum if it's treated roughly. We reach for some purifying gel like Sébo Végétal Purifying Cleansing Gel. This refreshing gel frees the skin from excess sebum and gently removes impurities and traces of makeup.

2. Exfoliate
The sebum on oily skin makes it attract more impurities. What's the workaround? Depending on your needs, use a gentle exfoliant once or twice a week to purify your skin.

Melting Sébo Végétal Purifying Scrub with apricot pit microbeads gets rid of excess sebum and tightens the pores by removing the impurities and dead skin cells that collect on the surface of the skin.

To increase your comfort, take a moment to apply a mask like the Sébo Végétal Purifying Clay Mask. It supplements your beauty routine and gives your face a break so it can recharge and purify.

 

3. Always moisturize
Oily skin does not mean hydrated skin. So never forget about moisturizing it. When your skin gets dried out it stops working correctly. In addition to that oily sensation, it feels uncomfortable and tight.

Our solution is to use a lightweight moisturizer or a gel. Sébo Végétal Flawless Hydrating Gel Cream has a refreshing lightweight texture and a dual-action formula that tightens pores on oily skin to mattify and polish and provides your skin all the moisture it needs.

It's also really important to drink water throughout the day.

4. Choose the right makeup

You also have to match your makeup to your skin type. For oily skin, avoid pore-clogging products and look for ones that absorb excess sebum and let your skin breathe.

So don't choose just any foundation. We recommend going for a mattifying product that stops shiny skin all day long.

Super Mat Foundation is your ally when it comes to completing this task.

 

5. Beautiful skin starts with a healthy lifestyle

Finally, a healthy lifestyle is your ticket to beautiful skin.

One of the causes of excess sebum is an unbalanced diet. So avoid sugary and fatty foods that can lead to new pimples! Take it a step further by choosing foods that are rich in omega 3 fats and antioxidants like citrus fruits, carrots, berries and fish. They properly oxygenate our cells, which works on our epidermis. Polyunsaturated fatty acids can actually help with hydration and make the skin smooth and supple.

Another culprit of oily skin is stress and there's a very simple solution: exercise! Physical activity promotes blood circulation and is the best outlet there is for living a zen and laid back life.

Lastly, sleep can also alter your skin’s condition because it regenerates itself at night.
