Despite popular belief, fair skin requires a great amount of care to keep it in top shape due it’s lightness in color, which can easily become blotchy, burn in the sun, or become uneven and red with the wrong products. Because of the lack of melanin, a substance that is found in the skin that naturally protects it from the sun, those with fair skin often have to play a balancing act when it comes to spending time outside during the day.

Why You Have Oily Skin

Posted by Bold Commerce Collaborator on

Oily skin is often indication by an overproduction of sebaceous glands that cause excess oil to secrete from the skin. While many people with oily skin are often frustrated by the amount of greasiness and slickness on their face, there are actually some compelling upsides,  such as having a natural protective barrier that keeps your looking more youthful longer, having more protection from the sun, or even requiring less skin care products.

Though you may think that oily skin is something that is a teenager’s problem, this skin type is also often found in adulthood and can sometimes cause topical concerns, such as blackheads and acne. While oily skin is often genetic, there are many factors that can cause one to have a slicker appearance than desired so here are some reasons you may have oily skin and how to balance it out.

Genetics

The more sebaceous glands that one has in their skin, the more likely they will have an oily complexion. Genetics play the biggest role in skin type and is often handed down from parents. So, if your mother or father had oily skin, then chances are, you may also. The downside of this fact are there is essentially nothing you can do to change your skin type. However, if having oily skin is becoming a problem for you, there are many solutions to alleviating the severity of the oiliness, such as looking at your environment, stress levels, and what you are eating, etc.

Unhealthy Eating

As the saying goes, you are what you eat, so consuming a diet of unhealthy fats, refined carbohydrates, sugar, and dairy can all trigger your sebaceous glands to produce more oil because many processed foods will cause hormones to spike. Dairy foods are often high on the glycemic index and causes hormones to spike, therefore leading to an increase in oily skin and blemishes. Instead, eat the rainbow of fresh produce, nuts, and healthy fats that are found in fish, as well as drinking plenty of water to flush out toxins and keep the skin as balanced and clean as possible.

Poor Skin Hygiene

Sleeping in makeup and washing your face sporadically will put you on the fast track to uneven, blotchy, oilier skin. Even worse, bacteria, dirt, and debris can also creep into large pores and become a breeding ground for acne and blackheads. For this reason, it is important to wash your skin morning and night to prevent any potential problems in the future. It is also important to wash your skin with products that are beneficial for your skin type. A cleanser and moisturizer that contains gentle ingredients is the best way to go as to clear away excess oil without over-drying your skin.

Medication

If you are using an over-the-counter drug, then this may be affecting your skin. Whether you may be taking oral contraceptives or hormonal-balancing medicine, sometimes these can inadvertently create an unbalanced flora that leads to acne. Multivitamins can also impact your complexion, especially if said vitamin contains a potent amount of B12 so it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor about issues that arise and ways you can alleviate skin symptoms.

Stress

Stress is one of the biggest factors for illnesses that are affecting Americans everyday. While some stress is normal, too much stress can be dangerous. As your body’s stress levels increase, oil production is also increased, along with potential acne, with then also makes things more stressful. For this reason, it is important to practice self-care methods, such as exercise, meditation, yoga, or other calming rituals to keep your mental, emotional, and physical well-being in top shape.

The Wrong Products

When you have oily skin and are using cleansers and moisturizers that are actually meant for someone with dry skin, this could lead to potentially more oily skin. Products that are designed for dry skin tends to be more emollient, thicker, and hydrating to make up for the lack of oil and moisture within the skin. Therefore, if your skin is already oily and you are topping it with heavy, oily products, clogged pores and blemishes are likely to occur. Instead, utilize products intended for oily skin so that your complexion remains the most balanced. Oil-free products that gently cleanse are ideal as they wick away excess oil and dirt, while keeping your skin appropriately hydrated and moisturized.

The Environment

If you live in a humid, warm climate, your skin is likely to become more oily as the sebaceous glands are more stimulated in this type of climate. Utilizing an exfoliant, such as our Bio-Fruit Gel Exfoliator is very important after cleansing, to dislodge dead skin, oil, and dirt. Your skincare should also be lighter, yet still hydrating, so utilizing a cleanser and moisture that contains hyaluronic or an alpha-hydroxy acid will help to improve the look and feel of the skin, overall.

Though oily skin is thicker, it still needs a tender loving care to keep it in shape. Keep these tips in mind so that your skin stays balanced and fresh.

Simple Solutions for Tackling Summer Skin

Simple Solutions for Tackling Summer Skin

Now that we are entering the warmest month of the summer season, it’s more important than ever to ensure that your skin is protected. And, just like every year, summer threatens to wreak havoc on our skin, yet, sometimes, we may forget certain habits that can actually protect it, so here are some simple, yet effective summer care tips that have stood the test of time and continue to work to this day.

Fight Dehydration

Hydration is important to keep your bodily functions working properly, ridding your body of toxins, and excelerates circulation, which helps to create a youthful glow. Hydration comes in many forms and ensures that you don’t become hydrated, which can lead to inflammation, rashes, and irritation. It doesn’t have to be complicated, so simply drinking more water this time of year or slather on some lotion to keep your complexion supple and fresh.

Protect

It’s heating up outside, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer through sunburns to go outside. Use an SPF to protect against burning and premature aging and if you’ve unfortunately succumbed to the sun’s rays, there’s nothing that a little Calming Sensitive Cream can’t fix with soothing plant extracts to cool your skin and soothe any irritations.

Exfoliate

Skin exfoliation is an important step in increasing circulation within the body and sloughing away dead, dull skin to reveal a renewed, and revitalized complexion. Exfoliation can be from head to toe to cultivate silky, smooth, skin that is soft to the touch. So, if you’ve noticed that your makeup is looking less than stellar or your skin is a bit lackluster, look no further than a good exfoliation session to solve your skincare woes.

Go Easy on the Makeup

We all want to look good, but having a melted face isn’t the road to take. While you’ll want to focus on the fun, take heed to your makeup regimen because all that sweat and debris will not only potentially clog your pores, it can get messy. Simply go for a light tinted moisturizer with beneficial ingredients than succumbing to looking overly done.

Sunless Tanning

A beautiful glow is nice, but not to the detriment of your health. Try a suntan lotion rather than laying out in the sun this season if you want to opt for more color. It’s simple, it’s easy, just as long as you handle it with gloves, as to not look conspicuous. Suntan lotion is the safe, yet effective way to wear a bit of color without risking skin problems in the future.

Keep it Light

There are so many products to try, yet you only need a few to keep you going this summer. Ditch the heavyweight creams left over from last winter and try something lighter so your skin can breathe. During warmer months, our skin produces more oil, so heavier creams and lotions aren’t necessary as heavier ones can cause blemishes, especially if you have oily skin.

Say No to Shine

You’ll want to shine brightly this summer, but not with shiny skin. The solution are ingredients that help wick away oil without overdrying. Try our Purifying Tonic Lotion, for dimming some of that shine so you can focus on more important things like having fun. Follow up with a light moisturizer and you’re good to go!

Mind Your Scalp

Sometimes we pay so much attention to our faces and bodies, we forget the one part that directly getting rays- our scalps, which can catch sunburn if we aren’t careful, so wear a hat to protect your hair as well, which can also dry out with overexposure. Wearing a hat also protects other vulnerable areas of your body, such as your nose, ears, face and neck. The wider the better, so you can be fashionable and safe.
