Everybody’s skin produces oil! Your sebaceous glands produce sebum, an oily or waxy substance that moisturizes and protects your skin and hair. Oily skin happens when your glands produce too much sebum, which can lead to a greasy surface, clogged pores, and acne.
But don't worry though as oily skin is perfectly normal! There are several things to keep in mind when caring for oily skin including using natural, organic products is the best course of action.
Here at Buddha Beauty Vegan Skincare, we have the perfect combination of natural organic skincare products that will help balance out oily skin and allow you to enjoy your day confident and worry free.
It is essential to cleanse for your morning routine especially if you have oily skin. The cleanser will unclog the pores from secreting sebum and dirt which contribute to the oily texture, which are known to contribute in the process of acne. When using our products it is best to place a small amount into the palm and with your fingertips gently massage over your face and neck using upward circular movements.
This product should only be used weeklyas too much exfoliation can strip the skin of its natural oily layers which can cause breakouts. Through exfoliating weekly you can strip away the excess dead/dry skin and unclog pores. For best results apply a dab of the scrub to wet skin and use gentle circular motions with firm pressure around nose, forehead and chin avoiding the delicate eye areas. Once done, rinse with warm water and pat dry.
Our Tea Tree Toner is perfect for oily skin as it removes excess oil without drying the skin. It leaves your skin looking healthy and radiant whilst also minimising pores and picking up left over traces of dirt and sebum after the cleanse. This toner will also reduce congestion in your pores without leaving irritation due to the anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Apply the Tea Tree Toner onto a cotton pad and pat gently over your whole face. Do not rub when applying the toner.
4. Facial Oil
Our Oily Skin Facial Oil
is designed for oily, acne prone and teenage skin types. It is helpful when keeping vital hydration locked in. If the skin becomes too dry it will naturally produce more oil to over compensate, so by keeping hydration locked in we find that sweet spot between oily and dry as both have negative affects on your skin. When applying, first wipe your face with a warm moist towel, and then gently dab the product on to cleansed skin and blend until fully absorbed. Once fully absorbed proceed to tap skin gently to encourage the oil to penetrate the deepest layers of your skin.
5. Face Mask
Our Purifying Pink Clay Mask
uses Kaolin Clay which contains high contents of silica which is known to remove dead skin and promote regeneration of new skin cells. You will experience the exquisite aroma of fresh roses complemented by the incredible cleansing and purifying properties of Kaolin clay. This mask expertly removes excess oils and restores a balanced complexion. For best results gently apply the mask to your face and leave on for about 15 minutes, once the mask starts to crack, wash off with warm water and a soft cloth.
