Oiliness

Is your face constantly shiny and impossible to mattify with makeup? It is a fact that every skin is producing sebum to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. What happens when the skin produces too much oil? This creates oily skin and one of the most popular skin concerns: oiliness. 

Your oil abundance can be caused by genetics, seasonal or hormonal changes, clogged pores, or simply stress. The most important thing is to control sebum without drying your skin, so it does not overcompensate. The key is to identify the root of oiliness and treat the skin with the right skincare. 

Why would someone have to fight oily skin? 

Oiliness presents itself to the world with constant shine and even a greasy feeling. Breakouts and blemishes created inside enlarged and congested pores go hand in hand with oily skin 

At Skinsider, we have a variety of Korean skincare products for oily skin that are gentle on the skin and will help you achieve your skincare goals. All thanks to our direct cooperation with cult K-Beauty brands. 

What can cause oily skin?

The causes of oily skin include genetic, age, environmental, and lifestyle factors. And yes, oiliness can be triggered and accelerated by incorrectly used skincare.  

Here are the top aspects to take into account:

  • lifestyle- your skin routine should be adjusted to the environment you live in. You can adjust your daily routine during summer or winter.
  • enlarged pores- you cannot change the fact you have enlarged pores but you can take of them with exfoliators and wash off masks.
  • wrong skincare-using the correct skin care products can make a huge difference in the amount of sebum your skin produces
  • not applying moisturiser- oily skin needs to be hydrated and it needs a face cream. 

What makes K-beauty products different? 

When it comes to oily skin, the K-Beauty routine has a lot to offer.  

Most of you will notice that K-beauty can be effective with only a few skincare products.  

Gentle on the skin, yet powerful and very often natural ingredients are converted into amazing lightweight formulas. Why gentle? Why lightweight? The key is to help revitalize oily skin in a healthy way. This means minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores, balancing skin routine and reducing a vicious circle of over-drying and overfeeding the skin that can only result in sebum overproduction. 

What brands should be at the centre of my attention? 

Time to explore skincare created by the experts in the field. Some of the best brands for oily skin would include: 

  • COSRX
  • PURITO
  • Some by Mi
  • Iunik
  • Isntree  

COSRX is so well-loved that it dominates the beauty market share in tackling oiliness and its roots. If you’re new to K-Beauty, we also highly recommend giving Purito, Some by Mi & Isntree try. Their products for oily skin are loved by many of our customers.

How to keep excess oil at bay? 

Mind your ingredients. Some of them will be true game-changers. 

Green tea will be enemy number one to oiliness as it can help decrease sebum production and reduce inflammation. And of course, green tea is packed with antioxidants that help fight damaging free radicals. Isntree Green Tea line is becoming a cult favourite at SkinsiderIt is natural, hydrating, and gentle. 

Snail mucin is extremely lightweight and brings deep hydration without any greasiness. It is also known to minimize breakouts and offers regenerative properties, which help with acne scarring.  

Skincare rituals are not complete without Vitamin C. This amazing ingredient has so many diversified properties and it is great if you suffer from acne scarring and need help fading hyperpigmentation caused by excessive sebum production. By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 21.5% Advanced Serum (30ml) can bring a natural glow. At such a high concentration, though, you should patch-test first to make sure your skin can handle it. Vitamin C is known to boost collagen production, which will help improve skin texture and tone that often accompanies acne-prone skin. 

Also, look for products that say they are “oil-free” and “non-comedogenic” to help keep pores clear. 

How to tackle skin emergencies created by oiliness? 

Hydrocolloid patches from CosRX are one of the cheapest emergency remedies. Yet they are the most satisfying acne spot treatments we have tested so farThe patches will help you manage your skin during those angry, painful moments reducing inflammation and keeping even cystic acne under control.
