One of the most common skin problems people have is oily skin. Oily skin doesn’t look good because it doesn’t look healthy, and you are more likely to have pimples or acnes which look even worse. When you have oily skin, it’s important to use the right products, but there are also many other things you need to consider if you want to have healthy-looking skin. So let’s take a look at what products Oriflame has for oily skin and what other things you can do to avoid having oily skin.
Determining your skin type
First of all, it’s important to determine your skin type and make sure that you really have oily skin. Because many people make a mistake determining their own skin type. If your face is generally shiny and greasy, especially in the T-zone (the nose and your forehead), your makeup doesn’t stay on for long, then you have oily skin. The T-zone is also more likely to have acne or pimples.
Another important factor is your diet. And this is at least as important as using the right products! There are certain foods that cause oily skin, so avoiding these foods can help a lot, and your body will be better at regulating the production of oil on your skin. Keep in mind that most of these foods are not healthy either, so avoiding them will also be beneficial for your overall health, not only for the health of your skin. So here are some of the foods that you should avoid: Dairy products, fried foods, alcohol, sugary foods, spicy foods.
Proper skin routine
It’s important to have a proper skin routine to maintain healthy skin. First of all, how you clean your face is extremely important. Using regular soap is the worst thing you can use on your face. It’s important to know that it’s perfectly natural to have SOME oil on your skin. In fact, healthy skin needs to have some oil on it. But regular soap is a too strong cleanser, it removes too much oil from your skin. It feels good to have clean skin after washing it with soap, but because you have removed too much oil, your body will try to overregulate it by producing even more oil. This causes a vicious circle if you keep using soap. Instead, you need to use a cleanser that doesn’t contain too much soap. Secondly, after cleaning your face, you always need to use a tonic which helps to maintain the normal pH of the skin. After the tonic, always use some kind of hydrating cream on your face to provide it with nutrients.
Oriflame products for oily skin
So let’s see what products Oriflame has for oily skin. But keep in mind that some of these products may not be available in your country.
Oriflame Novage Oil Balance Solution
This product can decrease excess oil production in the skin and it improves the texture of your skin. You can use this product every day, or when you experience oiliness in the T-Zone area. (the forehead, nose, and chin). It is recommended to use the product morning and evening, right after a cleanser, and to follow up with the remaining products in your skin routine. This solution will soak up oil and give you a matte finish on your skin, and it will also continue to work on your skin throughout the day.
Love Nature Purifying Face Oil with Organic Tea Tree & Lime
This product contains the essential oil of the Tea Tree which has antibacterial properties. It’s very useful because it tightens the pores on your skin so it doesn’t produce so much oil. It’s also paraben-free!
Mattifying Face Lotion with Organic Tea Tree & Lime
This product is also from the Love Nature family. It also contains Tea Tree essential oil and Lime that are the best remedies for oily skin. You can use this cream day and night, it will regulate your skin’s oil production, so it results in nice, healthy matte skin. This one is also parabens-free!
Oriflame Love Nature Purifying Gel Wash
A good skin routine always starts with cleansing! And for that, you need the right product if you have oily skin. This one is another product from the same family. Like the other products, this one also contains Tea Tree oil and Lime. It also contains salicylic acid which is a great solution against blemishes. On top of that, if you really care about protecting the environment, this product is for you because it is silicone-free and biodegradable!
Optimals Hydra Matte Refining Night Cream
This one is perfect for hydrating your skin, it contains Vitamin E which is a great antioxidant. The cream is specifically designed for people with oily skin. How do you use it? Use it at the end of your evening skin routine because this is a cream for the night. It has a gel-like consistency so it doesn’t leave an oily feel, which I personally prefer.
Oriflame Love Nature Purifying Toner
This product is also from the Love Nature product line. You need to use this toner right after the cleanser. It helps to remove even more traces of make-up or other dirt from your skin, and it also helps to maintain a healthy pH for your skin. Just make sure you avoid the eye area when you use it.
Love Nature Clay Mask Burdock
This one is a really good product from Oriflame, one of my personal favorites. This clay mask re-balances your skin, and clarifies it at the same time. This is especially beneficial for oily skin. You need to apply it on cleansed skin, spreading out evenly on your face, but you need to avoid the eye area and the lips. After applying it, you need to leave it on your skin for about 10 minutes before you wash it with warm water.
