5 Ingredients You Must Use If You Have Oily Skin

Knowing what ingredients to look for in skincare can really help up your skincare game if you have oily skin. Here's a list of the top 5 things you must have on your INCI list to make your skin glow. 

Niacinamide
Niacinamide, vitamin B3 is a great all round ingredient. It has been proven to regulate excess sebum production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and help maintain the skin’s barrier function - locking in moisture.

Azelaic Acid
This superstar ingredient has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial functions meaning it lessens redness if you have acne and scarring and fights off the bacteria that cause acne in the first place.

Evening Primrose Oil
Evening primrose oil contains a perfect balance of fatty acids to balance out excess oil production and dilute the oil already on your skin making it feel less oily.

Salicylic acid
Also known as BHA (beta-hydroxy acid) is an oil soluble acid that is able to penetrate and clean the dead skin out of the clogged pores that acne causing bacteria love to live in.

Sulphur
With both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties combined with exfoliating and oil drying benefits sulphur is a great ingredient for oily or acne prone skin.
