Caring for oily skin
The right habits: behind its "all terrain" aspect, oily skin is fragile. You therefore need to take care of it and clean it using a syndet (soap-free hypoallergenic cleanser). You can apply a special "oily skin" lotion and finish off with an ultra light textured moisturiser.
Choose a matifying cream that will absorb excess sebum with its "absorbent powders", and rebalance skin in the longer term thanks to two essential components, copper and zinc. Oily skin gets clogged up quicker than other skin types, so it's essential to exfoliate two or three times a week.
Don't forget that what you eat affects your skin. Opt for fruit, vegetables, fish, lean meat and avoid high-fat dishes, cold meats and sugary foods which cause spots and do nothing to improve seborrhoea.
Things to avoid: do not use detergent soaps or alcohol-based toners that increase sebum production. Also, do not go for lotions or creams that are too rich and will make your skin look shiny. Be careful with tinted moisturisers and other full-coverage foundations that can cause spots. While the sun improves how your skin looks, this is only temporary. There is often a "rebound effect" which causes an increase in sebum production and spots.
