Oily Skin

If your skin is shiny, greasy and thick, and generally feature large, open and clogged pores throughout your face, and can also frequently experience blackheads, you most likely have an oily skin.

What are the causes of an oily skin?

An oily skin overproduces oil and sebum. A skin type is usually genetic but it can also be due to external factors such as unsuitable products for your skin, hormones, humidity, stress or a diet. Luckily, an oily skin type will help you stay youthful for longer because your natural oils act like a protection to fine lines and wrinkles.

What should be your routine?

The best routine to have for an oily skin type should aim to regulate the production of sebum, responsible of blackheads and co. To remove excess oil and eliminate large pores without stripping the skin, you need to clean your face every morning and evening and only use natural, alcohol-free products that increase the production of sebum.

Sérum Perfection (Anti-blemish Serum)
This serum is made from a combination of Bakuchiol and Retinol. The association of the two molecules has the power to regenerate cells without causing irritations. The Anti-blemish Serum reduces imperfections and large pores while tightening skin texture and soothing inflammation.

Then the Sérum Radieux (Radiant Serum)
UV rays damage skin cells, which no longer work as well as they should. This disrupts the functioning of the pores. It will hence be more difficult for them to evacuate the sebum, which will cause dilation. This serum will neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals and protect the skin against oxidative stress.

Next comes the Crème Jeunesse (The Forever Young Cream) which is made from Bakuchiol, a natural alternative to Retinol. This cream will reduce wrinkles, brighten complexion, treat acne and make the skin flexible and hydrated.

Or
The Emulsion Active (Active Lotion)

It invigorates and purifies the skin and brightens the complexion thanks to cedar wood and palmarosa essential oils. It also regulates sebum and removes minor skin imperfections thanks to jojoba and Nigella sativa oils.
