Controlling Oily Skin + Achieving Balance: Our Essential Tips.


Finding the right oil balance for your skin can be a game-changer in your skincare routine. Oily skin, often a result of the skin compensating for dryness by producing excess oil, can be managed effectively with the right approach. In this blog post, we'll explore how to achieve a perfect oil balance for your skin and address the underlying causes of oily skin + run through essential tips that will help you attain a healthy and radiant complexion.


Understanding the Connection:  

  1. Dry Skin and Excess Oil Production: Did you know that oily skin can often be a consequence of skin that is actually dry? When the skin lacks proper hydration, it triggers an overproduction of sebum as a compensatory mechanism. This excess oil can leave your skin feeling greasy and prone to breakouts. By addressing the dryness, you can break this cycle and achieve a balanced oil production.
  1. Gentle Cleansing for Balanced Oil: Start by incorporating a gentle cleanser (like our Lemon Myrtle Cleanser) into your skincare routine. Look for a mild cleanser that effectively removes impurities without stripping away the natural oils that your skin needs. Gentle cleansing helps maintain a balanced oil production and prevents your skin from going into overdrive.
  1. Hydration is Key: Moisturising regularly is crucial in achieving the perfect oil balance. Opt for a lightweight, oil-free moisturiser (like our Light Balancing Crème or Moisture Boost Serum) that provides hydration without adding excess oil to your skin. By keeping your skin adequately moisturised, you can help prevent it from producing excess oil to compensate for dryness.
  1. Benefits of Weekly Exfoliation: Regular exfoliation plays a vital role in managing oily skin. By removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores, you can prevent the build-up of excess oil. Choose a gentle exfoliant (like our Gentle Exfoliant) suitable for your skin type to avoid irritation. Incorporate this step into your routine once / twice a week. 
  1. Avoid Over-Washing: While it might be tempting to wash your face frequently to combat oiliness, over-washing can actually worsen the problem. Excessive cleansing strips away the natural oils, causing your skin to produce even more oil. Stick to cleansing twice a day, unless necessary, to maintain a healthy oil balance.
  1. Opt for Oil-Controlling Makeup: Incorporating oil-free or mattifying makeup products into your beauty routine can work wonders for controlling shine throughout the day. Look for foundations, powders, and primers specifically designed to manage oily skin. These products help absorb excess oil, leaving your skin looking fresh and balanced.


Achieving a perfect oil balance for your skin requires a holistic approach that addresses the underlying causes of oily skin. By understanding the connection between dryness and excess oil production, you can tailor your skincare routine to maintain balanced oil levels.
