How to Combat Oily or Acneic Skin

Oily or acneic skin can be haunting and embarrassing, whether you are carrying blotting papers throughout the day, or checking to see if your makeup is where you put it on earlier. Also, the breakouts that come with the oiliness make it all more difficult.

To battle these we utilize some of our favorite skin care lines. Today we will be discussing how Cara, Serene and Repechage can be mixed and matched to achieve all your skin care goals.

The first thing is to make sure you are washing your face every day, twice a day (morning and night). Repechages Hydra Medic Face Wash is a foaming gel cleanser, one of the key ingredients is a red seaweed called Porprhyridium - Micro Alga. When used in conjunction with Zinc, it helps regulate the oils, while moisturizing and protecting the skin, even though the skin is oily, it can still be dry and flaky.

Toner is always needed, toner helps regulate the pH balance of the skin and closes the pores. Serene's Facial Toner is an excellent addition to any face regimen. Some of the star ingredients are Vitamin C, which helps fight free radical damage and Hyaluronic acid, which helps bind moisture to the skin. Toner is also to be applied twice daily, after cleansing both morning and night.  

Serums are so important when finding the right products to help battle your skincare concerns, two amazing serums to help combat acne breakouts are Cara's Glyco-15 Serum. You can use this one as your night serum, apply it all over the face or apply it as a spot treatment. Repechage has a serum called Hydra Medic Beta Hydroxy serum, among the amazing ingredients, the one that we believe is the star is Laminaria Digitata & Ascophyllum Nodosum, these are Sea Plants. The blends of these seaweeds help maintain the skin's barrier that is often forgotten to be treated. When we become so focused on eliminating the oil, the skin is usually dried out and damaged in the process. This serum will not only target the problematic areas, but it will also help repair and maintain the health of your skin.

Moisturizer is just as important, Cara's Pure Citrus cream is light yet moisturizing, it continues to target inflammation and protect the skin. Citrus Media Limonum (Lemon) Extract, is the star ingredient here, it helps clarify and cleanse the skin.

Masking is an important factor as well, and Repechage HydraMedic Sea Mud Perfecting Mask can be used twice a week to help with clarifying the skin. Ichthammol is a mineral derived mixture concoction ABSORBS the excess oils from your skin, so you can kiss those blotting papers goodbye!
