If you have oily skin then you might feel that it does not need a moisturiser. However, this is not correct as it is still really important to moisturise oily skin. Oily skin can still get dry and importantly a good natural face cream moisturiser for oily skin will help to heal and protect the skin barrier. Another common misconception is that face products and sun creams cause oily skin, however, oily skin is something that we are born with, or fluctuates due to hormonal changes. Some face products can definitely make oily skin look worse and even clog pores. So, it’s important to moisturise oily skin properly and with the right product.
Our Matt Formula Face Cream gets its hydrating power from hyaluronic acid and cassia, both of which are lightweight in consistency, but are able to give skin long lasting hydration and plumpness. Moisturising skin with a lovely anti-ageing moisturiser for oily skin like ours helps to keep it hydrated, smooth, fresh and healthy, plus fends off the signs of skin ageing. It also contains masses of other plant ingredients that will benefit oily skin, plus antioxidants to reduce oxidative stress. It works for combination, normal, oily and sensitive skin to hydrate and moisturise without being too dewy or rich. Instead, it provides long lasting protection and helps to correct any skin barrier defects.
Oily skin can seem to get worse over the summer months and in humid climates so take care to keep skin cleansed properly during this time, and all year round. Good cleansing is essential as it helps to reduce that burden of oiliness and help kind of degrease the skin. It’s important to clear skin of excess oil as otherwise it sits on the surface of the skin and clogs pores, which can lead to outbreaks, blackheads and whiteheads. Use a good cleanser like our natural cleansing milk and natural face toner as both are filled with plant cleansers that help to mop up excess oil, but without drying skin. Then after cleansing use a natural face cream for oily skin like our Nakin Matt Formula Face Cream that contains masses of gorgeous plant botanicals that hydrate skin beautifully but without being too rich for oily skin. Don’t forget the eye area too with a natural eye cream. You can also use oils and serums like those in our face product collection but steer clear of products that contain overly fatty ingredients like coconut and macadamia nut oils.
We hope that you found our feature helpful about effectively moisturising oily skin. Another thing to always be careful with oily skin is to not dry it out. Many of us think that drying skin out can be good for oily skin, however, it can actually make it worse as skin goes out of balance and it fights back by bringing moisture back to the skin. At Nakin we are dedicated to producing face products that help skin to look as good as it can naturally, with our cruelty free skincare that is all made in the UK.
