Oil Control: How to Get Rid of Oily Skin

Are you facing a battle with a greasy t-zone every day? We’re here to help. Discover how to tame that shine with a special skincare routine for oily skin. You need products that help with oil control, without stripping the skin of its natural moisture. Let us show you how to get rid of oily skin while keeping it healthy, hydrated and glowing. 

What causes oily skin?

Skin becomes greasy when your natural oil is produced in excess. There are various reasons why your skin could be oily:

  • Hormones: Hormone imbalances can play a huge part in excess oil production.
  • Chemicals: Certain harsh ingredients in skincare products can kick your oil glands into overdrive.
  • Genetics: You might have inherited oily skin.
  • Weather: Humidity and summer sun can play a part – and that’s the last thing you need when you’re on holiday.

Use products that are designed to help you achieve shine-free, clear skin – just make sure they’re packed with skin-loving ingredients, rather than harsh chemicals that can exacerbate the situation. All the oily skincare products in Simple Daily Skin Detox range are kind to skin, and can work wonders for your skin’s overactive oil production.
