Oily skin is a result of an overproduction of sebum from the sebaceous glands, theres nothing you are doing wrong, its all down to genetics. There are benefits since sebum helps to moisturise the skin, however too much can lead to clogged pores and acne. The temptation is to opt for skin products that promise to rid us of spots within a few days and leave a flawless complexion, often these products which have been heavily marketed are high in alcohol content which can irritate the skin and trigger oil production.
I have an oily skin which, with the correct products I can keep under control. I discovered Environ Sebu-ACE oil from the Focus Care Clarity range. This product contains Vitamins A, C and E plus botanicals, it feels lightweight and helps control breakouts. I have recommended this to many clients who have reported a reduction in redness and breakout activity. This is one of those products that you use as long as you need to and then once you have achieved the desired result you would change to using Environ’s AVST 4 moisturiser. The Environ range is a prescription only range so you will need to find a stockist who will advise you. Having used this product myself on and off as I need to I have found I rarely have breakouts anymore and my skin feels nourished and looks fresh and bright.
The product is priced at £38
