Top tips for oily skin

Shiny skin can be related to the amount of oil on the surface of the skin. A regular skincare routine for oily skin can help to reduce excess oil and keep skin hydrated.

Sometimes skin might produce more oil to compensate if it is dry, dehydrated or irritated, so look for gentle, non-irritating cleansers and moisturisers that won't disrupt the skin's natural barrier or cause blocked pores; for example, soap-free and non-comedogenic products.

Even though it seems counter-intuitive, people with oily skin should still moisturise after cleansing as this helps maintain skin hydration.

There are many other factors that can contribute to the oiliness of your skin too. Should you have further queries regarding the oiliness of your skin, we would recommend speaking to a healthcare professional such as your pharmacist or doctor for advice.
