The Oily Truth: Uncovering the Secrets of Managing Oily Skin

Oily skin is a common skin type characterized by an overproduction of oil by the sebaceous glands. This excess oil can lead to a shiny or greasy appearance on the skin, as well as clogged pores and acne. People with oily skin may also experience larger pores and an increased risk of blackheads and whiteheads.

To take care of oily skin, it's important to keep the skin clean and to use products that are formulated for oily skin. Here are some tips for taking care of oily skin:

  1. Cleansing: Use a gentle, oil-free cleanser twice a day to remove excess oil and dirt from the skin. Avoid using hot water, as it can strip the skin of its natural oils and make it produce more oil.

  2. Toning: Use a toner to help remove any remaining dirt and oil after cleansing, and to restore the skin's natural pH balance.

  3. Moisturizing: Use a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated without adding extra oil. For extra moisture, we recommend using a primer with natural ingredients. The Base Primer suits all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is dermatologically tested for daily use.

  4. Exfoliating: Exfoliate the skin once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells that can clog pores.

  5. Sunscreen: Use a sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher to protect the skin from sun damage. The Base Foundation has SPF30, so you can feel protected throughout the day.

  6. Avoid heavy makeup and use oil-free makeup. The Base Foundation is especially formulated for oily skin, and is both fully breathable and talc free. It will keep your skin matte and hydrated all day.

  7. Avoid touching your face often, as the oils and bacteria on your hands can contribute to breakouts.

It's also important to see a dermatologist if you have severe or persistent acne, as they may recommend additional treatments such as topical or oral medications.

Also note that some lifestyle changes can help keep oily skin under control. Eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep and exercise, and managing stress levels can positively impact your skin's health.
