If you have combination or oily skin that can feel greasy by the end of the day, then you need to try mattifying products that balance oil production! For anyone with oily skin, I recommend looking out for skincare that works to control excess sebum on the skin. Oily skin can be worsened by factors such as hormonal fluctuations during your menstrual cycle, stress, comedogenic skincare (that block pores) and changes in the weather. When the weather gets warmer, you may notice that your skin becomes even more oily than usual! To control shine and balance your skin, these are the natural products that I love!
1. WOTNOT Facial Wipes - Oily/Sensitive
For those days when you want a quicker alternative to your regular cleansing routine, I recommend the WOTNOT Facial Wipes - Oily/Sensitive $8.95. Formulated with certified organic ingredients including Pink Grapefruit, Papaya and Rosehip, these hydrating wipes cleanse without leaving your skin feeling dried out. They may be ideal for anyone with oily or acne prone skin because they deep clean and effectively remove any traces of makeup... even waterproof mascara! Facial wipes are also great to take travelling as they quickly cleanse on the go.
2. Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses® Cleansing Foam
The Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses® Cleansing Foam $19.99, is a rich foaming cleanser that removes makeup, oil, and other impurities. It works to unclog your pores and leave your face fresh and flawless. Ideal for all skin types, such as combination and oily. Apply to damp skin, gently massage, and rinse clean. Use both morning and night.
3. Lavera Cleansing Gel
If you're looking for a fuss free cleanser, I highly recommend the Lavera Cleansing Gel $15.35! It's a lightly foaming gel ideal for all skin types including oily and sensitive. This cleanser is made using a natural blend of organic Lemon Balm and Mallow which may be both healing and calming. When massaged into your skin, this cleanser works to remove any traces of dirt, makeup and oily impurities. It's the perfect alternative to mainstream supermarket cleansers!
4. Acure Oil Control Facial Moisturiser
The Acure Oil Control Facial Moisturiser $29.95, is a lightweight product that targets oil control and may help bring your skin back into balance. It uses the benefits of Rosehip, Aloe Vera and CoQ10 which may help minimise fine lines while reducing excess sebum buildup that causes oiliness. It may be the ideal moisturiser for those with combination, oily or acne prone skin! In a clinical study conducted by Acure, results showed that after 30 days, participants saws a 27% reduction in excess sebum on their skin!
5. Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Face Care Kit
If you like to try your skincare products before you make a commitment, then I recommend the Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Face Care Kit $49. Containing seven products from Dr. Hauschka's clarifying range, this set is made specifically for oily and combination skin types. Each product contains ingredients which may help to balance oiliness, reduce shine and prevent breakouts. They may also be fantastic for refining pores which helps create a much smoother complexion!
