Best skincare for oily skin

Is your skin shiny and greasy looking?

If so then its likely you have an oily skin type.

Oily skin is caused by an overproduction of sebum ( The skins natural oils) this causes greasy looking skin, prone to breakouts and blackheads.


So what can you do to give your complexion a boost without the harsh chemicals?

Read on to find out our best natural skincare products for oily skin.


Understanding Oily Skin.

Oily skin is caused by the sebaceous glands producing too much sebum, sebum is your skins natural oil that keeps the skin moisturised and protected.

An excess of sebum can cause skin to have a shiny appearance, in particular the forehead, nose and chin (T-Zone). Pores can be enlarged and trap dirt and dead skin cells, becoming clogged leading to blackheads and breakouts.


Using harsh skincare on oily skin can make matters worse, dehydrating and over stripping the skin causing the sebaceous glands to produce even more sebum, leading to a viscous cycle of oily and greasy looking skin. The solution is to balance your skincare, using hydrating and gentle cleansing products.

The good news is, we have done the hard work to find, and formulate the perfect duo for oily skin types. Here is a look at our top picks for oily skin and how they can help.
