Can Exfoliation Help Control Oiliness?

Can Exfoliation Help Control Oiliness?

Oily skin can be a mixed blessing, something clients find it hard to pinpoint that blessing though. Oily skin will be your hero as you enter your fifties and you are asked for ID purchasing a bottle of wine. Oily skin is self lubricating and does not age at the same rate as dry skin.

There is help at hand however and it is basically dedicating yourself to a quick day and night skin care regime that is never missed.  I will help you tweak it until those pores are as spotless as possible.

For someone who has oily skin if they are first double cleaning with Precleanse followed by Special Cleansing Gel - then using Daily Superfolaint and finishing with Oil Free Matte SPF30 you have a 7 minute morning routine that will, in my opinion, deep cleanse your skin whilst training your pores to produce less oil in the long term. I have seen this work for so many clients over the year - and the difference in their skin after a few months is remarkable. The balance you have to achieve is between cleaning enough without stripping the skin, and on the otherside mositurising enough with an oil-free product. In this skin care routine I have outlined, the night time routine would be to use precleanse, followed by Special Cleansing Gel followed by Active Moist ( you don't want to wear an SPF to bed).

Exfoliation is critical to dealing with oily skin - the other products are trying to minimise your oil production, exfoliation is about safely removing the layer of dead, dull skin cells  leaving fresher, smaller looking pores.  Choosing a product such as Daily Superfoliant can be especially helpful as it boasts a resurfacing, anti-pollution powder exfoliant. This highly-active resurfacer delivers your smoothhest skin ever, and helps fight environmental triggers known to accelerate skin ageing. The advanced powder formula activates upon contact with water, releasing powerful enzymes, skin-smoothing alpha hydroxy acids and anti-pollution technology. Activated Binchotan Charcoal purifies the skin, helping to adsorb environmental toxins from deep within the pores, while Niacinamide, Red Algae and Tara Fruit Extract help guard against the damaging effects of pollution. 

Exfoliation is your friend.
