Combating Oily Skin with Face Wash

If you struggle with oily skin, you have likely tried a whole bunch of different ways to make it better.

Here, we’re going to dispel some of the myths and look at how skincare products designed for oily skin can give your skin the boost it needs.

What are the best products for oily skin?

When it comes to choosing the right products for oily skin, start with the simple stuff. Washing your face might be something you do every day with soap and warm water, but the soap you use might be making things worse. Opt for a face wash that has been specifically designed for oily skin.When it comes to oily skin, it’s all about balance.

The reason your skin is oily is because it is producing too much sebum, which is an oily secretion from your sebacious glands. Unfortunately, men tend to produce more sebum than women, which is why throwing on your other half’s products and hoping for the best may not be the answer.

What is Oil Control Face Wash?

We designed our Oil Control Face Wash to be kind to skin. We use juniper along with a blend of other amazing ingredients. Some of which are known for their astringent properties, meaning it helps to removing the excess oil experienced with oily skin.

We also use willow bark; our source is from the white willow and is grown in the UK on an award winning environmental farm in Hertfordshire. Willow bark is traditionally known to help dry excessively oily skin and improve skin texture.Our studies have thrown back awesome results, with men questioned saying it removed excess oil and saying it left their skin looking healthier.

With results like that, it’s definitely worth a try. It’s also worth noting that our products never contain artificial colours, synthetic fragrances, or ingredients from animal sources.

What is the best face wash for blackheads?

One that is designed to help clear the skin. Black heads come about as a result of blocked pores caused by your overproduction of sebum. That, mixed with dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, makes a pretty narrow exit route for the sebum. The combination of sebum and dead skin turns black when its exposed to oxygen, and voila: blackheads.You might think scrubbing them away is helping, but the truth is that they are too deep into the skin to simply scrape off. Exfoliating and using a face wash regularly – like our very own – is the best way to reduce their appearance.

How do I stop my face from being so oily?

The best offence is a good defence. Wash your face twice a day, use an exfoliator to remove any excess dirt that you collect over the course of the day, and eat healthily.

Try to reduce your dairy intake as this can also clog up your pores due to the high levels of hormones found in milk, cheese, and yoghurt (we’re sorry, we know cheese is life). Steer clear of fatty or fried foods (sorry, again) and make sure you drink lots of water throughout the day.
