Shine is beautiful, but only when its on your hair and lips, and not on your face. A shiny face, unless the result of a strategically placed highlight, is a sign of oiliness, and with oiliness, comes another dreaded skin issue, which is acne.
It is the sebaceous glands in your skin that are responsible for creating that overabundance of oil, and their activity is influenced by a number of factors, which include hormones, your skincare ingredients as well as environmental conditions like humidity and dry winter air.
If you suffer from oiliness as well as acne, then you would know the struggles of taking care of your skin while also trying to keep the oil and pesky acne under control. Luckily, there are quite a few things you can do and products you can use that can help alleviate this concern. Here are some of them:
Cleanse your face twice a day
A quick, easy and effective way to keep your oily skin under control is to cleanse it twice a day. Use a gentle face wash, like the Sesha Skin Therapy Clarifying Face Wash (which contains 2% Salicylic Acid) in the morning and before you go to bed at night. This face wash encourages exfoliation, while unclogging your pores and detoxifying your skin, resulting in a clear and toned complexion
Use an oil-free moisturizer
When you have oily skin, the last thing you would want to do is put more oil on top of it. This is why you should always look for moisturizers or lotions, or any other leave-on product for that matter, with an “oil-free” label. We suggest using the Sesha Skin Therapy Oil Control Day Lotion, which absorbs excess oil and reduces the production of sebum, to give you shine-free skin that is also resistant to acne.
Use an acne treating product
There is nothing quite like an acne treating product like the Sesha Skin Therapy Acne Spot Gel to treat acne and also deal with excess oil production. Containing chamomile and calendula extract, this gel is formulated to reduce redness and irritation, while treating active acne breakouts by stopping the spread of bacteria. It also effectively prevents any future breakouts.
Oily and acne-prone skin can be pretty frustrating but fortunately, there are ways such as these to manage and keep the oil and acne at bay.
