The Key to Moisturizing Oily Skin
Believe it or not, dry skin is not the only skin that needs to be moisturized. Oily skin needs to be moisturized, too!
Oil on the skin is not hydration, it's the reaction to the lack of it. When a light moisturizer is used for oily skin, we slow the evaporation of moisture on the face which allows our sebum producing cells to relax. When we don't moisturize oily skin, it can actually start to get dry and flaky while producing more oil! It is similar to our scalp which will over produce oils when we shampoo too often, stripping our hair of its natural oil. Our scalp goes into over drive trying feed more oils to protect our scalp. When we stop shampooing as often, we then to have to "retrain" the scalp to not produce those oils. See what I mean? It's the same idea on your face, only much more important to know your facts. And so we have Creme PG by Yonka! It is a light moisturizer perfect for skin that tends to get shiny right away. It has geranium, rosemary, cypress and thyme which helps to clear some of the oil, vitamin A for exfoliation, and soy proteins that actually have a mattifying effect which is a benefit for those who don't like too shiny. If you're battling oily or acneic skin and feel overwhelmed or confused, make sure you are using products that will serve your skin over time. Start with creme PG, and come in and see us for a customized script. Your skin will thank you!
