Exposure to sunlight is essential for brightening your mood and synthesizing vitamin D. However, it can also be misleading as all skin requires protecting, even oily skin types. Protection and a light feel are not incompatible. Let us show you how.
A Fluid Texture.
There are numerous sebaceous glands on the skin, but they are denser over the T area where there are up to twice as many. In this way, when temperatures start climbing in the summer, they react stronger and produce more sebum. Oily skin that tends to be shiny all year is certainly not spared during the summer. Many of you think that sunscreen blocks your pores and forgo sunscreen as a result, and that is a mistake. All skin types, even oily ones, must be protected with suitable SPF. The Right Attitude? Choose a light and fluid formula. Our certified Organic SPF30 and SPF50 Face Sunscreens are good for the environment thanks to their formulas with mineral screens. Above all, they feel so light as to be barely perceptible after applying. What is more, their formulas contain talc that has a natural mattifying effect: you will not be just as shiny as the sun itself, you can be sure.
A Tinted Face Sunscreen
The other trick for people with oily skin is to use our certified Organic Tinted Sunscreen. The SPF30 version contains 100% natural-origin silica and talc as well as its mineral-origin pigments. Just what it takes to unify the skin, protecting it and mattifying it. Its non-greasy texture moisturizes and embellishes the skin, without leaving a shiny, oily finish. On the contrary, the skin is powdered and has a great healthy look.
The SPF50 is suitable for sensitive skin types and prevents pigmentation spots. Enriched with Organic rice powder, it has a matte effect as well as unifying and improving skin tone. The perfect answer for all skin types, even oily skins that need just as much moisturizing and protection as the others. Sebum is regulated and the T area, under control.
A Good Cleansing
If sunscreen does come off little by little in the water and through sweating, requiring re-applying every two hours to be safe, the face still needs to be well cleansed at the end of the day to remove the protective screens. Indeed, over time, the particles can block pores and cause imperfections.
Oily skin, sensitive to blocked pores, requiring more attention when removing sunscreen. That does not mean scraping off the epidermis with over-aggressive cleansers, which could make it even more sensitive. In turn, it will over-react and overproduce sebum to protect itself. You need to put your faith in gentle, oil-enriched cleansers. In doing so, you will be able to clean and unblock pores gently and completely.
Avoid the Rebound Effect
Under the sun, even oily skin seems brighter and less subject to problems. In a way, it is true.
But the rebound effect is never far. When the tan starts to fade, imperfections can appear. That is why is it so important to always clean your skin to remove sunscreen and to choose non-greasy protective products.
