Oily skin can be problematic whatever the weather: excess sebum production can inhibit skin renewal and clog pores, increasing the likelihood of spots appearing. It can also make it difficult to keep make-up in place during the day and can give the complexion a persistent oily shine.
When the weather improves and temperatures rise, increased sweating can compound the problem, making it more difficult to manage and keep under control. Oily skin needs a skin care regime that has been elaborated with its particular needs in mind if it is to look its best all year round.
In this article, we will look at the products that can help to cleanse oily skin effectively without stimulating oil production. We can have a tendency to opt for astringent products that strip away all oils, and yet this can actually stimulate production as the skin attempts to replace lost oils.
It is much better to go for a clay-based cleanser that gently absorbs excess oils without stripping the skin. Dermalogica’s Dermal Clay Cleanser is ideal for oilier skins as it provides deep cleansing while soothing and revitalising the complexion at the same time.
Using such a cleanser morning and night will ensure that the skin does not become congested, but this is not the only step you can take to combat excess oils. In the next article, we will take a look at other products that may prove helpful.
