What causes oily skin?
Have you found yourself asking why is my skin so oily? There are many reasons why you might have oily skin, some more preventable than others. Firstly, oily skin is impacted by your genes, meaning it might be something your family is prone to. Hot and humid climates also tend to cause skin to become oilier. What you can avoid is using the wrong skin care products. Make sure you look for products that match your skin type, meaning choose products intended for use on oily skin if that is the type you have. When it comes to skin care, it's also important to not overdue it with the products you're using. Overwashing your face can contribute to oily skin, as your body will begin to overproduce to make up for the natural oils being stripped away too frequently. Choose a good cleanser for oily skin, like our LHA Cleansing Gel, and always adjust the frequency of use based on recommendations and how your skin reacts.
How to get rid of oily skin?
So you want to know how to stop oily skin. Planning a skin care routine around your oily skin type is essential, the more you understand how your skin behaves and reacts, the easier it will become to take care of it. Firstly, if your skin is overproducing oil, you need to wash your face. Try washing in the morning and at night. You might be tempted to wash your face more frequently, but over-washing can actually cause your skin to produce even more oil. If you do decide to wash more frequently, observe how your skin reacts and take note of how much is too much. Next step is moisturizing with a lightweight moisturizer. If you find your skin is particularly susceptible producing oil, try moisturizing only at night instead of also including the morning. Make sure to fully remove your makeup at night before going to bed, as clogged pores can contribute to excess oil.
Does moisturizer help oily skin?
Moisturizer for oily skin is your ally, not your enemy. Some people believe that layering a product like moisturizer onto your face might increase your oily skin problems. What's important is choosing the right moisturizer, and controlling the frequency of application.
