Oily skin is caused by an overproduction of sebum in our sebaceous glands. The sebum in our skin however does play a role, to help moisturise the skin and keep hair shiny.
Stress, humidity, genetics and hormonal changes during a woman’s cycle can influence the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum.
If you have oily skin, you might be fearful of using oil-based products, however, these may actually be beneficial for your skin type. An oil cleanser is often used as part of a double cleansing routine, as a first step to gently remove makeup, SPF and excess sebum from the skin. It is often followed by a second cleanser which is used to properly decongest and clean the skin.

While it’s true that the production of excess sebum in the skin often can lead to breakouts and acne, all skin types, including dry skin, can be prone to developing acne.
If you have a combination skin type, you may find that your skin is oily around the t-zone, but your cheeks are dry.
When applied to the skin, salicylic acid helps to go deep beyond the skin to shed dead skin cells and remove excess sebum in the skin. Salicylic acid is great to use on combination skin as it helps with those who deal with oil and are prone to developing blemishes.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural water-based ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is quickly absorbed into the skin and will keep it moisturised, youthful and is non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores. Hyaluronic acid is beneficial to use on all skin types, including combination skin.
If you have acne-prone skin, it is beneficial to exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week. You may lessen this to 1-2 times a week, depending on how sensitive your skin is. Exfoliation is incredibly helpful for acne-prone skin types as it will help to reduce excess sebum and oil created on the skin and will remove impurities and dead skin, revealing a brighter complexion.
Yes! Moisturising is important for all skin types! Although you feel like avoiding moisturiser if your face feels oily, it is incredibly beneficial to moisturise the skin to keep it hydrated and reduce irritation, especially if you’re using acne treatments that dry out the skin. Try a water-based moisturiser that will feel lightweight and soothing on the skin.
Yes! If you have oily/combo/acne-prone skin, you might think you need to stay away from facial oils, but certain types of facial oils can actually prove to be beneficial for the skin.
Facial oils, like our Australian Jojoba, will often give these skin types much-needed hydration.
