I have oily skin, what should I do?

1. Sebum: the root cause of oily skin

If the skin on your face is prone to shininess, particularly in the T-zone, then there's no question about it: it's producing too much sebum. This can be genetic, or it can be caused by various factors, such as stress, poor lifestyle, hormonal imbalances or an overly harsh beauty routine.

2. The perfect beauty routine for keeping oily skin under control

The best way to tackle oily skin is to use products that work to gently remove excess sebum. Morning and night, start your routine with a suitable cleanser: this step is key to achieving healthy skin. Once your face is cleansed, apply the PORE CONTROL SERUM to your skin. Packed with vine flower cell extract, this serum is ideal for tightening pores that dilate as a result of too much sebum. Next, moisturise your skin with a light, non-greasy moisturiser to purify and minimise shine. Finally, once or twice a week before bed, treat your skin to the SOS PURE MASK enriched with purifying green and white clay and organic alpine willow herb extract. Its formula works to rebalance and purify the skin for a healthier, clearer, fresher complexion in just 10 minutes.

3. The kit to always have on hand

The PORE PERFECTING MATTIFYING KIT is ideal for touching up your make-up throughout the day. Thanks to its blotting sheets and smoothing powder, this 2-in-1 kit helps you achieve a flawless complexion around the clock.
