All skin produces oil. This natural oil, or sebum, is important, as it helps to protect the skin from drying out, pollutants and other environmental factors.
Excessively oily skin however, can be difficult to manage. Excessively oily skin is shiny and is prone to blackheads and enlarged pores, which give the skin a coarse appearance.
There are many products for oily skin available today. Unfortunately, much of this mass-produced skin care for oily skin just dries the skin out, stripping away the natural sebum, causing the skin to become inflamed and irritated and produce more oil!
Skin Care By Sia’s oily skin care is designed to be different. Using all-natural, active plant ingredients, we are able to help balance oily skin without stripping away essential sebum, meaning you skin is healthy and pores are reduced for a more refined look. Visit us for a skin assessment today!
What causes oily skin
Oily skin can be caused by a number of factors, including hormones, some medications, skin care and heredity.
In this type of skin, the oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive and produce more oil than is needed.
Often chronically oily skin has enlarged pores, blackheads and pimples.
Oily skin treatments
Skin Care By Sia has a range of oily skin care products that are specifically designed to help clear excess oil without drying or irritating the skin.
Our ranges of natural skin care contain the latest natural, chemical-free actives to help clear oily, congested skin.
Perfect for getting rid of congestion and excess oil are our oily skin cleansers by Chiral Actives and Dermedix. These cleansers gently cleanse, without stripping the epidermal barrier, which helps normalise oil production. Our ranges also include a toner for oily skin, a facial mask for oily skin, and a clarifying moisturiser for very oily skin. Our unique formulas are especially beneficial to those suffering from acne as our cream for oily skin hydrates the skin whilst reducing oil and bacteria, and stimulates collagen for blemish repair. Our treatments for oily skin use the power of nature with Tea Tree Oil, Witch Hazel and Willowherb Root to clear acne-prone skin and prevent new infections without drying or stripping the skin.
For blackheads and congestion, try Dermaze by Dermedix. Dermaze assists the skin to shed its outer layers, revealing newer, clearer skin.
Derma Cleanz by Dermedix, is a cleanser suitable for oily and normal skins. It is completely free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, propylene glycol, petrochemicals, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances and is not tested on animals. It gently cleanses without stripping away natural oils, helping to stop oily skin.
Tips for oily skin
Many people’s natural instinct is to try and ‘dry out’ their oily skin. So they slather on oily skin products and face masks for oily skin, which contain the same chemicals you use to wash your dishes.
Oily skin needs to be nurtured, NOT tortured.
An oily skin care routine needs to be simple. Gently wash your face using a face wash for oily skin morning and night only. Do not be tempted to cleanse more often than this, as you will stimulate more oil production. Be sure the cleanser you use does not contain parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, propylene glycol or petrochemicals, which will strip away the skin’s natural protective layer.
Following your cleansing routine, be sure to apply a light, oily skin serum, which helps to regulate sebaceous glands.
Use an enzyme mask for oily skin once or twice a week to lift oil, dirt and to unclog and refine your pores. You may also wish to come in to Skin Care By Sia for an oily skin facial. Using the latest technology and all-natural skin care, we can gently balance and repair your oily skin, reducing oil and refining pores.
The fact is, if you treat your oily skin with kindness and don’t over-dry it, the oil will naturally reduce over time.
