Oils, especially the ones our skin produces, can be our best friends if treated correctly. Stop making these 3 oily skin mistakes today.
1) Over cleansing, over washing, basically stripping your skin of it's natural oils. Having oily skin can give you the urge to wash and rewash your face, don't. By stripping away all your natural oil you're telling your skin it's dry and needs moisture which makes it go into over drive and causes it to produce even more oil to make up for what you just washed away. Regular and routine washing is all you need.
2) Thinking you're doing it to yourself. Let that self-blame go and accept that oily skin is what your body does and it's not wrong. Your routine, your diet, your habits, didn't cause this. Let it go. Drink water, eat a balanced diet and limit your alcohol for a healthy lifestyle, but sorry, none of these are related to oily skin.
3) I'm already oily so I don't need to moisturize. Just NO. Everyone needs to moisturize and as long as you're using lightweight, non comedogenic products you won't clog your pores. Moisturizing can help deliver the right nutrients to your skin and may help balance your natural oil production.
Also, fun fact, did you know that naturally oily skin tends to age better than dry skin? The softness from the moisture means fine lines and wrinkles may not set in as quickly so YAY for that. For a non pore clogging moisturizer, try our Rose Face Serum and Glow Moisturizer today!
