Oily Skin + Open Pores

Mattify your oily skin and minimise open pores to uncover your best skin ever.

We all want to aspire to have dewy, glowing skin, right? It’s definitely not the case when you have excessive oil and feel greasy! “Glowing” is not a word that you want to identify with, as you wish your oily complexion would just dry up.

You’ve been told oil is good for preserving your skin, however the excess oil creates visible open pores. Trying to control your oily complexion by constantly using foaming, soapy cleansers, not applying moisturiser and covering up with mattifying makeup has made your skin dehydrated and stripped, resulting in even more oil flow, pimples and open pores. Then to top it all off, with age, your wrinkles migrate between the open pores joining together like a dot-to-dot. Welcome to oily skin and open pores.

The Cause Of Oily Skin And Open Pores

Firstly there are so many myths surrounding the causes of oily skin and how to best treat it. What came first; the oily skin or the open pores? It all starts deep in the pores, where your oil glands lie.

Genetics and hormones are the main culprit for excessive oil flow, which is why it’s commonly seen amongst family members and is more prevalent through adolescent years. Environmental, lifestyle and skincare products are not the cause of oil flow, but they definitely can exacerbate oily prone skin. Warm weather, exercise and products that strip oil from the skin all lead to an increase in oil flow.

Oily skin does however, require extra care and maintenance. When oil cannot flow freely from the pores it becomes stagnant and builds up, stretching the small opening, resulting in enlarged pores.

You cannot completely remove oil from your skin, but with age you’ll find your oily complexion resolves. And if you cannot wait for the ageing process to start, we are here to help!
