Skincare for Oily Skin
Oily skin is skin that produces an excess of sebum. Sebum is the normal, wax like substance that the skin produces to help keep it healthy and supple. If we produce too much, it can cause shine and problems such as blocked pores, blackheads and spots.
But having oily skin doesn’t have to mean a constant battle with shine!

Understanding Oily Skin
Oily skin is characterised by oiliness or greasiness on the skin, in particular across the forehead, down the nose and onto the chin, in the area collectively known as the T zone.
It’s normal to experience some oiliness, particularly after a nights’ sleep or if it’s very hot. But constant shine and oil is a sign that you have oily skin. Sebum is produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin, and in some people with very oily skin, enlarged sebaceous glands can cause the pores to also appear enlarged and overly visible.
Oily skin can be caused by a variety of factors, the most common being hormonal, genetics, certain medical conditions and sometimes, certain foods.
Alkaline Skincare for Oily Skin
pH is a measure of the acidity or the alkalinity (the opposite of acidity) of a substance. You may remember doing experiments with yellow litmus paper at school to test the pH of various things.
The skin is naturally alkaline, yet most skincare products are actually acidic. To us, that doesn’t make much sense, so we created our range of skincare products to contain an alkalising complex of silica salts.
Our products support and nourish the needs of the skin at a cellular level, helping to promote healthy cell regeneration and hydrated, supported, healthy glowing skin, tackling oiliness at its root cause!
Treating Oily Skin
Oily skin can cause blocked pores, which will mean that dirt, makeup, dead skin cells, bacteria and excess oil can become trapped. This will then lead to blackheads, spots and possibly even inflamed skin.
So knowing how to treat oily skin with the attention and products it deserves is crucial.
Managing Oily Skin
Keeping oily skin under control is very much a case of using the right products on your skin (including makeup) that help to manage sebum production, without stripping the skin of these essential oils, or drying it out.
