It’s just another regular day. You are all set to make the best of the day. As the dawn falls, you are back home, staring at the mirror, and devasted with all the dust and pollutants stuck on your face. Sounds familiar? Blaming your oily skin? Let’s travel back and see what went wrong. It’s the moisturiser you are using. What you need is a good face moisturizer for oily skin to address your problem.
You struggle daily with oily skin and even after not applying a moisturiser your skin still gets oily. If this sounds like you, we are here to debunk the reasons and solutions to your oily skin radiant glow problem.
What causes oily skin?
Oily skin is caused by excess sebum, which is an oily substance released by the sebaceous gland to moisturise skin. Excess sebum build-up causes a greasy look, acne, blackheads, and pore-clogging. There are some possible reasons that cause an overactive sebaceous gland:
- Hormone imbalance: During menstrual and puberty, hormonal imbalances are caused leading to sebum production.
- Stress: A sudden panic situation or let’s say exams or an important meeting coming up, could be a potential reason for that last-moment breakout.
- Change in lifestyle: Consumption of oily, fried, and junk food increases sebum in the body.
- Comedogenic products: These products are responsible for clogging the pores, causing blackheads and whiteheads.
- Genetics: If your genes have carried on the issue of excess sebum, all you can do is manage the issue.
Does that mean you should leave your skin alone?
Not applying any moisturiser can also be a reason for an overactive sebaceous gland. When your skin is not nourished, the gland works to moisturise it, making more sebum than required. You need the best moisturizer for oily skin, Lotus Herbals Radiance Boost Ubtan Face Cream, which keeps the skin hydrated by locking in the water on the outer layer of the skin. This way your skin is hydrated without any extra oil or cream application that would make your skin greasy or oily.
What is the best moisturizer for oily skin?
Your oily skin needs a moisturiser that is light-weighted and includes potential ingredients that balance oil and keep the hydration locked. Look for one of the following ingredients while choosing a moisturiser for oily skin:
It is a natural ingredient that hydrates the skin by locking in the moisture. Its anti-microbial properties fight skin impurities and infections, reducing the chances of breakouts. This way it also cleanses the pores, reducing whiteheads and blackheads. Its natural astringent properties support minimising the size of pores and healing damaged skin.
You can use a day/night skincare regimen pack, Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Advanced Pink Day and Night Pack, and invest in tea tree facewash, Lotus Herbals Teatreewash Tea Tree & Cinnamon Anti-Acne Oil Control Face Wash, or tea tree face pack, Lotus Herbals Teatreeclear Anti-Acne Oil Control Tea Tree Face Pack, for an effective skincare routine for oily skin.
A gel-based ingredient is lightweight and has the natural property to lock in hydration to the skin. Aloe vera is one such ingredient. It keeps the skin supple, soft, and nourished without making it oily. It has anti-inflammatory and cooling properties that calm acne and other skin irritations. Its astringent properties help clean the pores deeply and reduce the pore size over time with regular use.
We recommend using Lotus Herbals Alphamoist Skin Renewal Oil Free Moisturiser, which comes with goodness of aloe vera and grapes extracts. Grapes are rich in vitamin C and natural astringent that help in balancing natural skin oil and removing excess sebum. Another best moisturizer for glowing skin is an anti-ageing gel cream, Lotus Herbals YouthRx Anti Ageing Transforming Gel Cream SPF 25 PA+++, with the goodness of ginger and ginseng extracts.
Moisturisers rich in vitamin C are a blessing for oily skin. Look for moisturisers with extracts of orange, Yuzu lemon, or Kakadu plum that help to regulate sebum secretion. These are potent ingredients that clean the excess oil from the pores and lighten the spots to give an even toned skin.
Lotus WhiteGlow Vitamin-C + Gold Radiance Face Oil is a perfect balance of vitamin C and oil. Though you will always hear about not using heavy creams or oils, this combination with Kakadu plum and Yuzu lemon balances the two ingredients—one that works on sebum and another that hydrates the skin.
With these, what you should also look for in a face moisturizer for oily skin are salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E. They have proved to work for oily skin by controlling sebum and treating acne. At Lotus Herbals store, you will find cosmetics and skincare products, specially curated to address the problems of oily face moisturizer for oily skinskin. Keep shining in radiant skin and say goodbye to oily-greasy skin!
