How to control a shiny skin

How to control a shiny skin

Are you seeking solutions to control your oily shine?   

We understand that the constant battle to control excess oil on your skin can be disheartening, especially when nothing seems to work.  

To keep skin balanced it’s important not to strip or over process your skin but rather respect its natural PH. There are some simple adjustments you can make to your daily skin care regimen to keep excess oil in check.  

Let’s talk oily skin  

 Oily skin needs balance. Over-drying cleansers strip skin of natural sebum and lipids, triggering a cycle of dehydration that can irritate skin and make chronic oiliness worse. Instead, pick a cleanser that removes excess oil without stripping skin’s natural lipid barrier.  A cleanser like our Clear Start Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash has a gentle non stripping formula to help an oil prone skin.  

Often people who struggle with oily skin often actually have dehydrated skin (skin without enough water); their skin then tries to compensate by producing too much oil. As with cleansing, the key is to find the right balance – so look for a truly oil-free moisturiser that’s packed with water-based hydrators. Clear Start's Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion is a fantastic lightweight moisturiser for a dehydrated skin.  

 Oily skin is genetic and often tied to hormones, which can influence skin’s oil production. So, while it’s true that our lifestyle can often impact our skin health, the best thing you can do for oily skin is strive for balance. Clear Start's Breakout Clearing Booster is a fast-acting booster, formulated with Salicylic Acid, helps combat breakout-causing bacteria for rapid skin clearing helping your skin to maintain its balance.
