What is oily/ acne-prone skin? Oily skin is when the skin over-produces sebum. As a result, the sebum gland can become blocked and lead to blemishes.
Below are product recommendations to help manage oil production and target blemishes.
We suggest you start with 2-3 products in your routine at first to allow your skin the chance to adjust. Then begin adding extra products once your skin is responding well.

Light Work - Rosehip Cleansing Oil - Ensure heavy makeup and/or SPF has been properly removed at the end of each day. Poorly removed makeup and SPF can block the pores and the skin can become congested. This is a great first step in your cleansing regime if you choose to double cleanse.
Middlemist Seven - Gentle Cream Cleanser - Gently remove dirt and impurities you may have come into contact with throughout the day without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Skin which has been stripped of its natural oils can react by producing more oil to compensate so maintaining a balance is important.
Living Water - Purifying Tonic - The purifying properties in this tonic will help to rebalance oil flow and act as a preventative solution for bacterial infection.
The Pioneer - Mattifying Moisturiser - Keeping oily skin hydrated will protect it from becoming dehydrated and producing more oil. This moisturiser is our lightest cream and is free from silicones, beeswax and heavy oils; helping to rebalance oil production. The satin-matte finish creates the perfect base for using underneath makeup.
All Becomes Clear - Blemish Serum - Applying our Blemish Serum will help to gently alleviate redness, inflammation and bacteria without drying the spot and causing irritation. Zinc extract will help to reduce shine and keep excess oil at bay.
Rosehip Bioregenerate - Universal Face Oil - Our Rosehip Oil contains regenerative sterols to soothe inflammation surrounding the blemish and encourage healing. Don't be afraid to use an oil on oily skin as it can help to balance oil flow, and in turn, reduce further breakouts.
Dinner Out - Blemish Mask - The gentle fruit acids provide exfoliating action by dissolving the dead skin cells; ideal for clearing congestion. We use Kaolin Clay to draw out impurities and rebalance the skin without leaving it feeling tight and dry.
