1) Find the best cleanser for your skin
Make sure to cleanse your face with a product designed to remove dirt and sebum without stripping too many oils. If a product is too drying, it can actually lead to an increase in sebum production.
Our NIVEA Micellar Cleansing Water range works great as facial cleansers and makeup removers, gently removing the bad stuff so your skin can really breathe.
2) Find the best moisturiser for your skin
Remember, if you dry your skin out too much it will produce extra sebum to compensate. That means it’s still important to moisturise. Choose a product like our NIVEA 24H Mattifying Day Cream, which uses minerals and antioxidant formulations to reduce your skin’s oil levels, while offering a burst of hydration that lasts all day.
3) Dial up your diet
Focusing on a fresh and varied diet can work wonders. Foods containing sulphur such as fish, vegetables, legumes, eggs and nuts can help reduce excess levels of sebum.
4) Consider your haircare products
Did you know your shampoo and conditioner can have an impact on your skin? It makes sense. If you’re using a particularly drying shampoo, you might experience dandruff. And to counteract the drying effect, your skin might start to overproduce sebum. A good way to counteract this is to find a shampoo and conditioner combination that’s sulphate free.
