How To Control Oily Skin

  Oily skin tends to produce more sebum than necessary. There are various reasons for this: Genetic predisposition, stress and hormonal fluctuations, an unhealthy lifestyle or other external influences like weather. All these can stimulate the sebaceous glands which can overproduce oil, causing skin impurities.


Once you know what causes oily skin, and what the symptoms are, the next step is to give your skin the attention and special care it needs.
Sebum production has to be kept under control so those bothersome pimples and blackheads do not form and shiny skin is avoided. Even if you have extra oil production on your skin, you can get a clear complexion by following the right care regime.

Cleansing Oily Skin

Thorough cleansing is particularly important for oily skin. Do not use soaps, as these dry out the facial skin unnecessarily and stimulate the production of the skin’s oils.

NIVEA’s All-In-1 Multi Action Extra Deep Face Cleansing with extract of magnolia bark cleanses intensively, reduces shine and opens the pores. This ensures that bacteria are effectively controlled and the skin’s appearance is enhanced.

Using a toner after cleansing is also a good idea. Toners with a little alcohol have a disinfecting effect and are particularly suitable for oily skin.

Make your skin radiant!

If you have oily skin, you should always use a moisturising cream, as oily skin still needs to be protected against cold, heat and other environmental influences.

Make sure that your moisturiser contains anti-bacterial and skin-soothing ingredients. NIVEA Urban Detox Day Cream, enriched with bio green tea extract, provides your skin with effective anti-oxidative care and strengthens skin’s defense system.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
