Everyone has their own skin story - too oily, acne prone, too dry, spotty, a bit of everything. Oily skin though seems to be common for many woman I speak to. So here's the low down on what you can do about it.
The truth of the matter is genetics plays a pretty big role in the type of skin you have however what you do to your skin can make it worse. Daily activities, your environment, your hormones and in particular the products you use can exacerbate oily skin taking you from radiant to greasy. Having a skincare routine is essential including a moisturiser (yes! a moisturiser!) to inject moisture into the skin and protect it from external bacteria. So whilst you ponder the benefits of hydrating your oily skin, here is a round up of our favourite natural moisturisers.
ELAN Essentials Balancing Moisturiser is one of our favourite ethical moisturisers for nourishing oily skin during the day. It's light and packed with goodness to protect and hydrate your skin. The best bit about this little beauty, is that it prevents pimples which seem to be ever occurring with oily skin. Blended with tropical fruit Mangosteen which soothes redness and irritation and unclogs pores to protect against pimples. The fruit inclusion acts as an anti-inflammatory to promote a healthier, more glowing result.
