Changes in hormone levels, in puberty or at any life stage, can trigger the sebaceous glands in the skin to produce increased levels of sebum, which gives rise to an oilier complexion and can provide the perfect environment for pimples to thrive. Oilier skins, with larger pore sizes, can also be genetic, with certain ethnicities naturally prone to an oiler skin texture. While increased levels of oil in the skin may help to keep it looking youthful, it may also mean you are more likely to suffer from blemishes and breakouts.

Our skincare advice and product recommendations


Use a gentle cleanser such as Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser to instantly remove daily grime, pollutants and make up, even stubborn mascara, to leave skin feeling comfortable, balanced and exceptionally clean. Used with the pure cotton cloth it gently exfoliates, lifting away dead skin cells to reveal smoother, clearer and brighter-looking skin.

A cleansing and purifying mask 1-2 times a week can also help. Our Deep Cleansing Mask contains green clay to help reduce oiliness and draw out impurities to leave skin balanced and calm. Just remember to follow with your chosen moisturiser, if your skin needs it.

Contrary to what you might think, having oily skin doesn’t mean you should avoid using facial oils. Superskin™ Concentrate for Night, made from an aromatic blend of pure plant oils, helps to soften and rebalance skin for a beautiful, radiantly healthy-looking complexion.
