Oily Skin? Korean Skincare Has the Answer!
It may be tempting, if you have oily skin, to try to strip it of its natural oils by using harsh cleansers and toners while skipping the moisturiser. If that sounds familiar, step away from that unforgiving regimen! The fact is, contrarily, dehydration and severe products are often the cause of the overproduction of sebum. This overcompensation will exacerbate the underlying cause of your oily skin, be it hormones, stress, season or genetics.
A Gentle Approach
The best way to manage a skin prone to oiliness is to look for effective ingredients which are gentle enough to avoid over-drying your skin, yet vigorous enough to clean deeply and control all that sebum.
A Korean skincare regimen encompasses all that – and more. By focusing on “skin first”, with make-up as an optional extra, the science behind Korean products works on the root cause of the problem. The dedication to cutting-edge research and development, combined with the ancient wisdom of using natural ingredients is a powerful tool for all skin types and skin concerns.
Top Products for Oily Skin
- Cleansers, which gently remove impurities such as sweat and dirt from the skin without stripping your own natural oils.
- Toners, which are hydrating and exfoliating, preferably containing oil-soluble beta hydroxy acids (BHA or salicylic acids), which get right into the pores to cut through any oil that is clogging them.
- Clay masks have been used for centuries to draw out impurities (which settle on your skin and put you at risk of breakouts) and to gently cleanse stressed out skin and to mattify the appearance of your skin.
- Moisturisers and sunscreens, which are light and readily absorbed.
