Why does your skin become oily?
The oils that your skin produces is actually a good thing. It helps to ensure that your skin is as moisturised as possible. Not only this, but it also protects it from all the outside pollution and damage that can be caused each and every day.
Your skin has to produce these oils, called sebum every single day, however, the glands that are located under the surface of the skin, can, at times produce too much of this sebum, which will sit on top of your skin and cause it to look oily and make you more prone to blemishes and acne,
What skin care routines can you put in place?
The good news is that here at Care by Jords, we know that there are things that you can do to make sure that your skin looks the best that it can.
One of the best things that you can do is to make sure that you use products which are designed for people with oily skin.
This includes using products that are designed to offer much needed moisturise to your skin, but that are not going to leave a residue like our Hydrating Face & Body Lotion.
It is also a good idea to think about trying products that are water based too.
You should also ensure that you clean your face morning and night as this will help to reduce the amount of oils that are left, building up on the skin. You can use water, but, if you really want to help to reduce the oil build-up, then you may want to use a micellar water to help to cleanse properly.
Double cleansing is a fantastic method for oily skin you can learn more here.
Just because your skin is oily, that doesn't mean that you should limit the amount of moisture that you give it, you still need to ensure that you use moisturiser, else the skin will dry out and then, to combat this, the glands will produce more and more oils.
It goes without saying that your diet and lifestyle choices have a huge impact on your physical wellbeing and your skin. If you have oily skin and you want to get rid of it as easily and quickly as possible; then here are some of the best foods to eat.

In conclusion what we are afraid of may be just what we need. When we suffer with oily skin we tend to avoid oil based products. In many cases these products contain the exact ingredients that we need.
Also, less is more. If we minimise the amount of abrasive work we put into our skin the less likely we are to irritate it and cause it to produce more oil.
