You know how frustrating it can be if you're one of the many people who have to deal with oily skin. The shine that oily skin produces is often bothersome, and finding a way to reduce it can seem complicated. But don't worry; some practical tips can help keep your oiliness in check. We'll look at why oily skin happens and some of the best ways to reduce its shine, including using products from Ceramique Aesthetics.
What Causes Oily Skin?
The first step in tackling your oily skin problem is understanding what causes it. The oil production on your face is triggered by hormones called androgens, which cause your body's sebaceous glands to produce more oil than usual. This excess sebum builds up on your face and results in the shiny appearance you want to avoid.
However, other factors, such as environmental conditions, stress, and age, can also contribute to your skin being oilier compared to others.
Tips For Reducing Shine On Your Face
So now that we understand why our faces get so shiny, here are some tips for reducing the shine on your face:
1. Cleanse your face twice daily with a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water.
2. Blot your skin regularly throughout the day to absorb excess oils.
3. Use an oil-reducing toner after cleansing and before applying moisturiser.
4. Look for oil-free, non-comedogenic products when selecting makeup, sunscreen and other skincare items like Phyt's 3-in-1 facial cleanser for sensitive skin.
5. Try using oil-absorbing sheets that can be applied over the foundation to help reduce shine.
6. Avoid having direct contact with items such as phone screens and laptop keyboards that can transfer oil onto your skin.
7. Consider using a hydrating mask, like the Derma Cool Healing Collagen Mask, once a week to keep the skin hydrated yet helps to combat excess sebum and blemishes.
Diet Helps To Keep Oily Skin Under Control
It's also important to remember that diet plays a vital role in controlling excess oil production as well. Try avoiding foods high in saturated fats (like fried foods) as much as possible, drink plenty of water throughout the day, and make sure you're getting enough vitamins A, B6, C, D, E, zinc and omega three fatty acids from food sources like fish oils or nuts.
Lastly, apply sunscreen wherever you go outside. This will help protect your skin from sun damage while preventing further oil production caused by UV exposure. We recommend Phyt’s Protective Fluid or Ceramique Aesthetic’s Ultra Bright Sun Block Gel, which offers a high SPF 60 that is rare in the market.
It’s a common belief that people with oily skin do not have to keep their skin hydrated. Do not fall for this misconception by treating yourself to a refreshingly hydrating experience with Ceramique Aesthetics' selection of Phyt's skin care products.
The Purifying Antiseptic Solution (Naturoderm) features a lightweight texture to gently cleanse the skin, leaving it soft, clean and smooth. For additional hydration needs, indulge in the luxurious Instant Hydrating Mask, which offers a revitalising effect.
If you have oily skin and are looking for ways to reduce its shine without drying out your face too much or irritating it with harsh chemicals, these tips should help in allowing you to look your best. Make sure you're using products specifically designed for oily skin, such as the ones featured above and available in our e-store.
However, it is advised to pamper yourself with professional treatments every once in a while to keep your skin in good condition.
