Oily skin normally presents a more intensed shine compared with other skin types. This intensity is due to the high production of sebum by the sebaceous glands. It also has a tendency to have blackheads, pimples, more dilated pores and a stickier sensation caused by the excessive production of oil. Luckily, there are tips and products to control the problem.
1. Hydration? Yes!
Oiliness does not mean that your face is hydrated. All skin types need hydration. This helps to balance them, as well as maintain their natural characteristics and protective barriers. Make sure you do not miss out this step in your beauty routine for oily skin . There are specific versions of cream moisturisers for this type of skin, such as Night Serum for Oil Control and Pores Refiner with a gel texture.

2. Make intelligent choices in your diet.
The better you eat, the more beautiful your skin. Avoid fatty and fried foods, because this can increase oiliness and the incidence of pimples. To help control the oiliness, it is also best to limit yourself to one drink a night and eating spicy foods no more than once a week. Include more carrots, cantaloupe, and spinach in your meal - high in vitamin A and can actually slow oil production.
3. Remove make-up!
When you arrive home at the end of the day, be sure to take care of your skin. If you use makeup, be sure to remove it before going to bed. And even if you don't, clean your face to remove the residues of pollution. Use specific products for oily skin type to ensure more in-depth cleansing.

4. Exfoliate twice a week.
Those who have oily skin needs a little extra help in removing impurities and dead skin cells. Do not let the treatment assets penetrate the skin as this will also produce more oil. Exfoliate your face twice a week - any more than that can cause a rebound effect.
5. Acne control.
Acne is one of the main problems faced by those with oily skin. But, following the precautions we suggested earlier, inflammations will tend to be under control. In addition to an inadequate routine, pimples and blackheads can be caused by hormonal changes, stress and inadequate nutrition It is proven that foods with a high glycemic index can deregulate hormonal functions.
6. Hot baths / showers are bad for the skin
Hot water removes the skin's natural protection. And on the face, hot water tends to make your skin produce more fat for protection against dryness. The result? Oilier skin in this area.
7. Use toner.
Toner is a product that helps cleanse the skin and compensate excessive oiliness. They complement cleansing, tackling impurities that are difficult to remove with other products, reinvigorate and recover the skin's vitality and prepare the skin for the next stage of cosmetic treatment. Our Pore Purifying Toner is indicated for oily skin.

Apply from the center to the sides, with smooth, circular upward motions for the face and downward motions for the neck. Avoid the area around the eyes.
8. Protect from sun rays.
Protection for the face and other parts of the body exposed to the sun rays is crucial, regardless of the skin types. Even on cloudy days it is essential to have sun protection that is suitable for your skin.
9. Drink plenty of water!
Especially during hot days, it is important to increase your water consumption. Don't forget that the amount of water you drink directly influences your skin's health and appearance.
10. Choose the right foundation.
Light-weighted foundations are usually the best options for oily skin, since it cannot keep the pores covered for longer hours, they tend to accumulate enough sebum. In addition, oil-free products with a matte finish help to control the brightness of the face, ensuring a dry and opaque surface for longer hours during the day.
