How to balance oily skin

1. How should I clean oily, blemish-prone skin?

Oily or combination skin needs a deep cleanser that does not dry out the skin. Drying out your skin can cause it to produce more oil, and many cleansing products targeted at blemish-prone skin actually make your skin even drier. When your skin feels dry, it tries to correct itself by producing more sebum – and too much sebum causes clogged pores, blemishes and shiny skin. That is why finding the right skincare routine is so important.

LUMENE Nordic Clear [Tyyni] Balancing Clay-to-Foam Cleanser for oily, combination and blemish-prone skin transforms from creamy clay into lightweight foam to effectively wash away makeup, impurities and excess oil. Infused with balancing Nordic meadowsweet and calming Arctic roseroot, this lightweight cleanser unclogs pores and helps to prevent new blemishes without drying out the skin.

2. Why would oily skin need serum?

Once your skin is clean, you can continue your skincare routine with a serum specifically designed for your skin type. The LUMENE Nordic Clear [Tyyni] Balancing Daily Serum for oily, combination and blemish-prone skin is a potent mix of Nordic meadowsweet, Arctic roseroot, zinc gluconate and niacinamide that reduces excess shine and helps to diminish the appearance of pores, blemishes and redness.

3. How can I hydrate oily skin?

Caring for oily skin is all about finding the right balance. Skin should not be allowed to dry out but should not feel greasy either. Oily skin reacts to internal and external changes day and night, visible shine and makeup that slides off the face by the afternoon are common problems. It is therefore worth choosing a moisturizer that controls shine without clogging pores. The LUMENE Nordic Clear [Tyyni] Balancing Light Moisturizer for oily, combination and blemish-prone skin absorbs quickly and leaves skin well hydrated and naturally matte. Infused with balancing Nordic meadowsweet, Nordic red algae, calming Arctic roseroot and shine-reducing zinc.

4. Does oily skin need oil: yes or no?

Contrary to popular belief, oily skin can also take nourishing oils. The best time to apply oils is before moisturizing in the evening and, if necessary, in the morning. Oils not only nourish your skin but also help to seal in moisture; lack of hydration is one of the causes of oily skin. The right oil for your skin is one that absorbs well, without leaving your skin feeling sticky.

Blemish-prone skin reacts well to a potent cocktail of moisturizing fatty acids and balancing plant-based ingredients. The LUMENE Nordic Clear [Tyyni] Calming Hemp Oil-Cocktail for oily, combination and blemish-prone skin contains organic Nordic hemp seed oil that effectively soothes skin without clogging pores.

​​LUMENE Nordic Clear [Tyyni] Calming Hemp Oil-Cocktail is a multi-award-winning product.
