The Best Skincare Routine for Oily and Acne-Prone Skin
Struggling with shine? Battling breakouts? We see you, oily skin types.
Skincare for oily, acne-prone skin changes as we enter adulthood. As teens, many of us were taught to use ingredients specifically aimed at drying out skin to control oiliness and breakouts. This can send your skin seesawing between oiliness and irritation. We believe that healthy skin is balanced skin, which is why our oily skin routine is different. This easy, four-step routine uses proven-effective, non-irritating ingredients to achieve healthy, calm, even-textured skin with fewer breakouts and less shine.
What Causes Oily Skin?
Oily skin occurs when your sebaceous glands overproduce sebum, a complex mixture of triglycerides, fatty acids, natural moisturizers and waxes that help protect skin from water loss. Your face and scalp contain the highest concentration of sebaceous glands anywhere on your body, hence why we’re most likely to notice oiliness in those areas.
So what causes sebaceous glands to go into overdrive? Hormones and environmental factors can both impact the amount of sebum your skin produces. It may seem counterintuitive, but moisture helps balance oily skin. In fact, your skin can overreact to harsh, drying ingredients by producing even more oil.
The best skincare routine for oily, acne-prone skin is aimed at providing weightless moisturizer while visibly improving oily skin concerns such as enlarged pores, breakouts, and the dark spots that can appear after blemishes heal.
