Every skin type likes hydration, and this is also true for oily complexions. Skin is our largest organ, and it is made up of 64% water. So, it makes sense that keeping your skin hydrated is important for how it looks and feels.
But if you have oily skin, you might be thinking that adding more moisture will only make your skin oilier. Actually, the opposite is true. Hydrating your skin helps to regulate sebum production, so your skin will not overcompensate by producing even more oil. This is why we never recommend using a drying cleanser for any skin type.
Usually when we have oily skin it is actually combination skin, and there will be areas on the face that are drier than others. The key to a good moisturiser for oily skin is using high quality ingredients that are not too rich or pore clogging. This is exactly what our Nakin Matt Formula Face Cream offers and is why we believe that it is the best hydrating moisturiser for oily skin. It is filled with some of the best natural skin hydrators, such as plumping hyaluronic acid, which deeply hydrates skin without any greasiness. This is because it has the ability to attract and retain moisture but sinks into skin beautifully. It also contains lots of nourishing and oil balancing plant oils like jojoba, argan and baobab. Then there is conditioning cassia and pomegranate for antioxidant protection. Overall, it offers excellent hydration and nutrition for skin on the oily side, as well as sensitive skin, combination skin and normal skin types that prefer a more matt finish.
If you are unsure about using a hydrating moisturiser for oily skin, then it is good to know how they work to improve skin. Our sebaceous glands produce oil, also known as sebum. This oil is important because it helps to keep our skin healthy and hydrated. However, if you have too much oil on your skin, it can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. One of the best ways to control excess oil production is to use a hydrating moisturiser. A good hydrating moisturiser will help to regulate sebum production, keeping your skin hydrated without making it too oily. It will also help to soothe and protect your skin, keeping it looking healthy and radiant.
A good hydrating moisturiser like our natural anti-ageing moisturiser will also help to replenish your skin’s natural moisture barrier, keeping it hydrated and healthy-looking. It has a light non-greasy formula that is really kind to skin, so it will not leave it feeling irritated.
