How can I manage oily and combination skin types? Easy to follow steps

In order to treat the condition, it’s important to understand the reason behind oily skin. When skin is dehydrated it produces sebum (oil) in an effort to hydrate itself. In cases of oily skin, the sebum production is excessive and gives you that greasy look.

There are two treatment options we can offer. First, you can use Hemp Seed Oil as an oil cleanser to regulate your sebum production. While it may sound counter intuitive (using an oil to regulate oil production), Hemp Seed Oil is non-comedogenic in nature in that it does not block pores and will still act as a natural moisturizer.

Second option is to use Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is the strongest Humectant known in dermatology. It is not a moisturizer, rather acts as an agent to retain moisture in your skin since it has the tendency to hold up to 1000 times its weight. Hyaluronic Acid will enable your skin to retain its natural moisture so the skin will not produce excess sebum. We have Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid serum that will allow you to have that glowing skin. Do keep in mind that we recommend our customers use the Vitamin C and HA serum along with a moisturizer. Since you have oil skin type, using HA serum alone might work but it’s hard to tell since there is no “one size fits all” formula.

Our recommendation would be to start with the use of Hemp Seed Oil to regulate sebum production and to keep your skin moisturized. Using Hemp Seed Oil is the less costly option as well. However, you will have to give it some time before you see a marked difference (up to 30 days). Once excessive sebum is regulated with Hemp Seed Oil, you can then move to Hyaluronic Acid. Hope this helps. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out
