Health for your skin

Dermatip: What does an oily skin need?


The number of skin types depends on the biological conditions of each person, it is what we call the Biotype, or what is the same: the biological pattern of each skin type. The classification of the different biotypes is related to the secretions that form the hydrolipidic layer of the skin. Among the best-known skin types is the oily skin. Oily skin has an abundant hydrolipidic layer because the sebaceous glands produce too much sebum giving a too shiny even oily appearance.

If your skin type is oily, surely your face will present an appearance with glows, dilated pores and imperfections like pimples or blackheads. Even if you think oily skin is a teenage thing, it is very likely that, if your skin has this tendency, you will have the feeling throughout the day that your face feels dirty and somewhat sticky. If your skin is oily, don't give up on its care and choose specific products and a routine that fits your needs and characteristics. We tell you how to do it and what you should take into account!

Proper cleansing

Washing your face more times than normal or using products that dry it out excessively will not help. If you like to clean your skin with soap and water because of its oily condition, we recommend a Micellar Gel that removes all impurities and dirt, calms the skin and leaves a clean feeling without drying out. If you tend to have pimples or blackheads another good option for this cleaning is the Purifying Cleansing Gel. Both options are ideal for the cleaning step of the face that you must carry out both in the morning when you wake up, and before going to sleep (whether you have makeup on or not!).

Once the cleaning is done you will notice your skin is clean and free of oil. Take advantage of this to apply an Astringent Tonic Lotion with sebum-regulating action that, in addition to refreshing the skin, dries any pimples or lesions you may have and regulates or normalizes the production of oil. Do not abuse the tonic, apply it morning and night or only at night (according to your needs) with a cotton ball and a touch.

Oily skin also needs moisturizer

Many times we make the mistake of thinking that oily skin does not need hydration, on the contrary! Moisturizing is very important for all skin types, but we must choose the one that suits our needs. To take care of your skin and make it look vital and healthy we propose two different products depending on the moment you apply them.

The Multi Rejuvenating Revitalizing Booster is an all-in-one because in addition to being a perfect anti-aging treatment, it will leave your skin hydrated without the need to use a moisturizer afterwards. You can apply it morning and night according to your needs and it will provide you with luminosity, firmness and elasticity, while reducing wrinkles and unifying your skin tone thanks to its high concentration of active ingredients with an energizing action.

The Multi Repair Cream is the product we recommend you use at night. After cleansing, you can apply the Revitalizing Booster if you think your skin needs it, and after that, apply the Renewing Night Cream. It is a regenerating anti-ageing cream with which you can recover your skin and look good when you wake up. Don't make the mistake of not moisturizing your skin because you will make its oily condition worse.

Always protect it from the sun

Because of the oily condition of your skin, you may be reluctant to use sunscreen on your face, mistakenly believing that you will cause a greater amount of sebum on your skin. It is important that you protect your skin from the sun as its consequences are sometimes irreparable. For your skin type we recommend oil-free suscreens that leave a "dry touch" sensation. In our opinion you will have no problem if you choose the Oil-free Sunscreen SPF50, you will be protecting your skin against UVA and UVB rays and your skin will look perfect and without shine!
