Shine Control

Understanding what causes shine:

The sheen that develops on your face by noon is actually oil or sebum, secreted by the sebaceous glands. This oil serves a good purpose – it prevents your skin from drying out or ageing prematurely – but it’s not great for your confidence! In hot summer weather, perspiration makes shine even more visible.

Tips on controlling shine:

  • Right range: Select products suitable for your skin type
  • Cleanse carefully: Cleanse twice daily, but don’t be tempted to scrub harshly or wash more often as this can stimulate oil production and shininess
  • Moisture Must: Avoid heavy creams and opt for a light oil-free moisturiser. Skipping moisturiser altogether is not a good idea as your skin will respond to dryness by simply producing more oil
  • Keep cool – stay out of direct sunlight and overheated environments as perspiration aggravates shine. And don’t stress!
  • Hands off – Avoid touching your face excessively as this can stimulate the oil glands and spread bacteria
  • Eat wisely - How you treat your whole body shows through on your skin. So, stick to a healthy diet that includes plenty of fresh food, and skip unnecessary oil and sugar.
