What Are The Best Products To Use For Oily Skin?

November 29, 2016

Depending on the amount of oil you see on your face, your oily skin might be a problem or it could just be your natural glow. The skin needs natural oils to keep it hydrated, so don’t be afraid of a little bit of shine. But, sometimes environmental conditions, damaging skin care products, and even stress can turn the body’s oil lever on “fully open” leaving you with tons of oil that clogs pores and leaves you with a look you don’t want. Hyaluronic acid for oily skin, and a few other ingredients as well as lifestyle changes, can help you control any problematic oil.

 Hyaluronic Acid Pure

Before you reach for a product to control extremely oily skin, it helps to know what might be causing your condition. If you regularly use drying skin care products, either without knowing or in effort to get rid of oil, you may be doing yourself a disservice. When the face is very dry, the top layer of the skin becomes tight and natural oils are not allowed to escape easily as they should. Therefore, they build up to create what might seem like little pools of oil and the body can actually overcompensate for dry skin by producing way too much oil.

Reach for Hyaluronic Acid for Oily Skin

The best thing to do to control oil on the face is to choose gentle products that bring the skin to a natural state of balance. A face cream with hyaluronic acid is a great product to use daily, as it keeps the skin hydrated so the body doesn’t need to go overboard with oil production. And, hyaluronic acid moisturizes skin to keep it supple, which means there is no tightening of the epidermis that can clog pores.

Don’t Skip Moisturizer and Avoid Pore Clogging Products

You shouldn’t be afraid to use a moisturizer if you have oily skin. Super hydration is not the same as excess oil, so if you opt for a face cream with hyaluronic acid for oily skin, you will reap all of the hyaluronic acid benefits including natural moisturization and youthful-looking skin. Instead of using drying face creams or face creams with oils like petroleum or mineral oil, choose an oil-free moisturizing cream like one of our face creams with hyaluronic acid.

For such a popular skin care ingredient, there’s a lot going on with HA, so beware of love at first use! There are more layers to using HA than the simple equation, Dry Skin + Hyaluronic Acid = Hydrated Skin. In some conditions, the intended results can actually backfire. Think the opposite of clear, dewy, plump skin. So how do you use HA properly? 

First - Debunking Common Myths about HA 

Hyaluronic Acid is not actually an acid, like glycolic or salicylic acid that exfoliates the skin. HA is a complex sugar, known as a polysaccharide, that occurs naturally in the body providing hydration for our joints, hair, eyes and especially the skin.
