Do you have oily skin? Most of us do, especially when living in the tropics. Skincare problems from oily skin to excessively dry skin provide the ideal place for acne. A majority of girls and boys are prone to developing acne during their lifetime. However, if you aren’t able to identify the reason for your acne breakouts, you might not be able to rectify the problem either. To help combat oily skin and reduce the excess ‘shine’, here are 5 products from Spa Ceylon you can add for a natural skincare routine.
What is oily skin?
Oily skin is a result of a production of sebum from the sebaceous gland, which forms an oily/waxy substance that hydrates and protects the skin. In moderate amounts, sebum nourishes your skin and keeps it healthy. However, an overproduction can lead to oily skin which clogs pores, resulting in a breakout of acne.
Here’s how to tell if you have oily skin
- Clogged pores and blackheads.
- Your skin has a shiny or oily appearance.
- Occasional or persistent pimples.
- Large/ easily visible pores.
How To Treat Oily Skin
A good skincare routine can help you tackle oily skin. The best prevention for oily skin is to find a consistent routine and to stick to it. Here are some simple skincare products to add to your routine.
Use A Facial Cleanser
Spa Ceylon’s White Mint Facial Cleansing Foam is perfect for oily and blemished skin. The cleanser is made from natural Ayurvedic herbs which help purify the skin by giving it a deep cleanse and reduce the build-up of oil in the skin. Ingredients like Eucalyptus and Peppermint soothe the skin making it soft and supple.
Use An Exfoliator
Exfoliating helps cleanse and clear clogged pores and removes dead cells which help to even out skin tones. These deep acting scrubs aid in reducing the oiliness of the skin, giving it a glow without a greasy look to it, and an easy addition to your skincare routine at home, that you can use three times a week. Two vegan exfoliators you can use to offset this skincare issue are:
Spa Ceylon’s Skin Balance Moringa & Neem Clarifying Clay Exfoliator, which contains Aloe Vera and balancing Witch Hazel to help mattify the skin.
Spa Ceylon’s Neem & Tea Tree Refining Natural Exfoliator. Tea Tree is known to have antibacterial properties which help to clear clogged pores and give a deep scrub.
Use A Facial Toner
A toner is used after a face wash and its main purpose is to close your pores after cleansing and to remove the last bit of dirt and impurities on your skin. It also improves your skin tone by balancing the pH levels of your skin and preps the skin to absorb your face cream. Add a facial toner to your skincare regimen. Try Spa Ceylon’s White Mint Facial Skin Tonic which is an alcohol-free facial cleanser that helps to remove excess oil and soothe the skin.
Use A Facial Masque
A face masque to your skincare routine is the equivalent of adding a cherry on the cake! Treat your skin to Spa Ceylon’s Skin Balance Moringa Clarifying Clay Masque that will not only make you feel as though you’re having a spa treatment at home, but it’ll also help control the build-up of sebum in your skin. Licorice, Papaya and Calendula cleanse and purify your skin by removing the excess oil, while Moringa helps restore natural skin balance. Use this all-natural product at least once a week and you’ll definitely feel the difference in your skin.
Use A Facial Moisturiser
Moisturising is a vital part of skin health and when you find a moisturiser that complements your skin type it is revolutionary! If you have oily skin you must try Spa Ceylon’s Neem and Tea Tree Mattifying All Day Protector which is a fast-absorbing non-oily formula. The Witch Hazel and soothing Aloe Vera will keep your skin looking matte and oil-free for longer, while the triple UV sunscreen will help protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. The Margosa and Peppermint keep the skin cool, minimizing imperfections and leaving your skin soft and radiant.
Combine our products to create the best skincare routine to tackle oily skin. Remember to also follow a healthy lifestyle with well-balanced meals that will help keep your skin healthy and nourished. Oily skin can also be caused by numerous other factors that might require medication, from hormonal changes to high-stress levels.
