Fear of accentuating excess sebum , accentuating your skin problems , increasing your number of pimples or blackheads except that moisturizing your skin would actually do the opposite .

In fact, properly hydrating your skin will limit the production of sebum since the skin will be protected by the hydration you provide it with your cosmetic products .

Assets to avoid

Avocado and coconut oil: These very popular oils may be unsuitable for oily skin . In fact, these oils clog pores and turn out to be comedogenic . They can thus worsen the production of sebum as well as the appearance of pimples and blackheads .

Petrolatum : very fashionable with the promotion of the slugging method , this ingredient is very occlusive and highly comedogenic , it is therefore not recommended to apply this ingredient to oily skin since it would clog the pores and would lead to an rash of pimples .

Assets to prioritize

Jojoba oil : unlike the oils previously mentioned, this one has soothing properties and is not comedogenic . Its molecular structure being very easily integrated into the skin , this oil is suitable for all skin types to protect it from external aggressions.

This oil hydrates , nourishes , firms and repairs all skin types, so it is suitable for combination to oily skin .

Jojoba oil

Aloe Vera gel : this active ingredient stimulates the production of collagen , it lightly hydrates the skin due to its fine texture and is very easily absorbed by the skin .

Hyaluronic acid : this natural active ingredient , present in the body , can retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water, allowing it to hydrate , plump and firm the skin without any greasy finish .

Safflower Oil : finally this active ingredient is rich in antioxidants and is essential to the skin's hydro-lipid barrier . This oil therefore helps to soothe the skin while hydrating it , thus helping to regulate excess sebum by protecting the skin from attacks that could cause it to react.

Our recommendation

To lightly moisturize your oily skin , apply the Care Lotion following your skin cleansing . This lotion with a light, watery texture has the benefits of a tonic lotion , due to its texture , but also those of an essence , due to its effectiveness and concentration of active ingredients .
