Nourishing Oily Skin Moisturiser

Nourishing Oily Skin Moisturiser

Giving your skin lots of nourishment is a must have for every skin type, including oily skin. There tends to be a myth that oily skin does not need as much nourishment as dry skin, but this is not true as oily skin still benefits from lots of lovely omega oils, vitamins and minerals. This is exactly what our Nakin Matt Formula Face Cream offers with its excellent nourishment for oily skin types.

Our Matt Formula Face Cream is from our natural anti-ageing moisturiser collection and is made with some amazing plant extracts for oily, combination, normal and sensitive skin types. At Nakin, we never use overly greasy rich ingredients in any of our products, as these can clog pores. Our Matt Cream contains wonderful natural actives and extracts such as hyaluronic acid, cassia, pomegranate and a carefully picked blend of plant oils. It offers the face and neck everything needed in a face cream for oily skin types.

Why Oily Skin Still Needs Nourishment

Contrary to popular belief, oily skin still requires nourishment just like any other skin type. While it may seem counterintuitive to add more moisture to already oily skin, the reality is that proper hydration is crucial for maintaining healthy and balanced skin.

Understanding Oily Skin

Before diving into why oily skin needs nourishment, it's important to understand what makes skin oily in the first place. Oily skin is typically caused by overactive sebaceous glands, which produce an excess of sebum (the natural oils that keep our skin moisturized and protected). This can be due to genetics, hormone fluctuations, or even environmental factors.

The Importance of Hydration

One common misconception is that oily skin doesn't need a moisturiser because the sebum produced already provides enough moisture. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, when oily skin isn't properly hydrated, the sebaceous glands can go into overdrive and produce even more oil in an attempt to compensate for the lack of moisture. This can result in clogged pores, breakouts, and an overall unbalanced complexion.

Choosing the Right Products

When it comes to nourishing oily skin, it's important to choose the right products. Look for lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturisers like our Matt Formula Face Cream, that won't clog pores or feel heavy on the skin. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin are beneficial for oily skin, as they provide hydration without adding extra oil.

In addition to moisturiser, using our hydrating serum or facial oil can also help nourish oily skin. These products are typically lighter in texture and can be easily absorbed by the skin, providing much-needed hydration without leaving a greasy residue.

Finding Balance

While it's important to properly nourish oily skin, it's also important to strike a balance. Using too many heavy or oil-based products can actually exacerbate oily skin and lead to breakouts. Instead, opt for lightweight ones like ours, that won't add extra oil to the skin.

Additionally, incorporating exfoliation into your skincare routine with our Exfoliating Radiance Tonic is essential for maintaining balanced and healthy oily skin. Exfoliating helps remove excess oil, dirt, and dead skin cells that can contribute to clogged pores. Just be sure not to overdo it, as this can strip the skin of its natural oils and lead to even more oil production.

Even though oily skin produces excess sebum, it still needs nourishment in order to maintain a healthy balance. Choosing the right products and striking a balance between hydration and oil control is key in nourishing oily skin. With the right products you can achieve healthy, nourished, and radiant skin even if you have an oily complexion.
