Oily Skin

If you find that throughout the day your skin is feeling shiny and you are more prone to breakouts, then you probably have oily skin. Oily skin occurs when the sebaceous glands in the skin produce too much sebum. Many things can affect the oiliness of your skin, from genetics, to diet and weather.

One of the best things for combating excess oil is to make sure you have a good skincare routine, to ensure you keep your skin is clean to prevent breakouts and to remove excess oil. However, you need to use gentle products that don't strip the skin of too much oil, as when the skin is dried out too much it may overcompensate by producing more oil. This is where micellar water comes in.
