WHY IS MY SKIN SO OILY?
To quickly recap our skincare guide for oily skin, you should know that the oil on the surface of your skin is made up of sebum, dirt, makeup, sunscreen, sweat and all kinds of other things in your environment. While a thorough cleansing can help manage some of these things, your body’s hormonal system oversees your skin’s sebum production—and that system is impacted by all kinds of complex biological factors like stress, diet, hygiene habits and environmental conditions. Managing all these life circumstances can be difficult and it can be especially frustrating to undergo stress and health problems only to get hit with a breakout from excess sebum getting trapped in pores.
HYDRATED SKIN IS HAPPY SKIN
While your skin might feel oily, it isn’t necessarily getting the hydration it needs. All skin types—even oily—need hydration. Think of skin hydration as having to do with water, which doesn’t mix with oil. Despite being oily, your skin still needs hydration to stay healthy and happy. When it comes to finding a moisturizer for oily skin, the trick is finding the right balance
WHAT KIND OF MOISTURIZER SHOULD I USE FOR OILY SKIN?
To find a good moisturizer for oily skin, make sure to choose a lightweight, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) moisturizer to help balance your complexion. If you suspect that your current moisturizer is breaking you out, check the ingredients label for heavier or more occlusive ingredients like coconut oil. While there are lightweight oils that are beneficial to oilier skin types, there are others that are known to be stifling for the skin. Heavier oils can trap dirt and debris in pores, leading to inflammation and pimples.
To ensure that your skin is getting enough hydration (and holding onto it) look for humectants. This class of ingredients pulls water into the skin to keep your skin barrier hydrated. These superstar hydrating ingredients can be great for oily skin. Make sure to look out for glycerin and hyaluronic acid to hydrate oily skin.
If you want your moisturizer to be doing more than just moisturizing, make sure it includes other active ingredients like BHA (beta hydroxy acid). This exfoliating agent helps your skin shed pore-clogging buildup on the outer layer of your skin. Salicylic acid is the most widely used and appreciated form of BHA because it works wonderfully for oily skin.
WHAT’S THE BEST MOISTURIZER TO SHRINK PORES?
Okay, so you’ve probably heard that you can’t technically shrink your pores. However, you can help minimize their appearance for a smoother and more even-looking complexion.
