Your skin has lost its natural healthy balance and texture is coarse.
Shiny looking skin with enlarged pores, blackheads, and pimples. Texture is uneven and coarse.
Oily skin is often caused by hormonal imbalance, poor diet or the use of too many foaming or alcohol-based products when shaving. These actions strip your skin of its natural oils, drying it out, which causes your glands to compensate by producing even more oil. This can often lead to infected follicles and painful pimples.
The important point to be aware of with congestion, is that the skin will correct and heal itself if given the right support. The simple step of soaking your skin with the Hydration Ritual, will help to regulate oil gland activity and improve skin texture. It also assists in an enzyme action that is important to heal the skin. If breakouts occur when you begin to include the soaking in a daily routine, do not be concerned because as the surface of your skin becomes more hydrated any congestion sitting below the surface will begin to move. This will pass as balance is restored. The Clearing Wash can be used as a mask daily on problem areas to help correct congestion. Until the congestion clears, you will not need a moisturiser. The Clearing rescue serum is the last product you apply morning and night. Diet is an integral part of correcting Oily skin. For advice go to Ask an Expert.
