  1. Salicylic Acid Cleanser

Foaming face washes are great to deep cleanse impurities from oily skin. But does it help to control oil afterward? No!

So your oily skin needs a cleanser that doesn’t only clean but also regulates oil secretion in the skin and face wash and cleaners that contain salicylic acid is great at it. 

  1. Clay Mask

Oily skin generally has enlarged pores that produce more oil and get stuffed with pollution, dirt, and dead skin cells which later becomes the cause of annoying bumps of whiteheads and blackheads.

But clay masks have got the solution for these skin problems. I’m sure you might have used a Multani Mitti face pack once in your life and had a great experience.

Toner works as a protective shield on the skin that doesn’t let any dust, impurities, chemicals, or dead skin cells enter your skin pores as well as it maintains the optimal PH balance in the skin, as a result, your skin produces less oil.

  1. Blotting Paper

A great rescuer! Yes, Blotting paper is the best thing you can use to absorb extra oil without spoiling your makeup. At home, we have the option to wash our face when our skin becomes extremely greasy and gives an indication to us that if we don’t wipe out the oil it will create skin problems.

Refreshing cool ice cubes shrink the doors of skin pores and maintain the accurate PH balance in the skin which creates adverse conditions for the sebaceous gland to produce more oil.

If you want maximum benefits you can freeze green tea ice cubes. These amazing ice cubes contain anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that kill acne-causing bacteria right off and leave you with gorgeous skin throughout the day.

  1. Oil-Free Moisturizer

I know, already having an abundance of moisturization is over the top for you. But using the wrong moisturizer or not using moisturizer is also a cause of your skin being excessively oily.

Our skin’s natural oils differ from the artificial ones so you can literally trick your sebaceous gland to produce less oil by moisturizing your skin with an oil-free or water-based moisturizer.

What it Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (THD)?

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is a stable, oil-soluble form of Vitamin C, used in cosmetics, personal care products and anti-aging products because of its ability to increase collagen levels, reduce melanin production, brighten skin, and repair the effects of UV exposure and other environmental damage.

In other words, it penetrates skin faster and goes in deeper than any other form of vitamin C (including L-Ascorbic Acid!).

  • Can improve the appearance of aged and fragile skin
  • Widely used as add-on ingredient in skin-lightening products to correct hyperpigmentation and dark spots

Vitamin C is probably the most powerful anti-aging ingredient there is because it is the one ingredient, that from an anti-aging point of view, directly stimulates collagen.

There’s a natural receptor for it, which is a unique receptor. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, which protects the collagen we have from breaking down from free radicals and it directly blocks an enzyme that leads to melasma and hyperpigmentation.

It really does make the skin look fantastic so you know there’s room for improvement and innovation, which is where I come in.

Ideal for those with sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation who want even-toned, smooth, and soothed skin.

Why is vitamin C the wonder ingredient?
It undoes photodamage and works on the realigning and thickening of collagen. Collagen formation needs to have ascorbic acid (a.k.a. vitamin C) to function. If you don’t have it, you get something called scurvy.

But you’re also into it for its sun protective qualities?
If you put Vitamin C on your skin and go out in the sun, you get a little less sunburn than if you didn’t. Add vitamin E to the equation, you get even a little less sunburn. Now, if you put C, E and melatonin on, you’ll get exponentially less sunburn. That said, I could not determine specifically how the melatonin works to activate the C. It enhances it, they work symbiotically, but no one knows how because the sum is so far greater than the parts. Melatonin is an antioxidant as well but somehow when it’s put together with C and E, it’s terrific. Both are in my C Boost Serum.

Niacinamide is another interesting ingredient (it’s also in Boost). There have been a whole bunch of studies that prove it offers enormous protection against basal cell carcinoma when ingested. It’s been this year’s top story in the medical news. We don’t know if it works topically, but it doesn’t hurt and it was no big deal to add to the formulation. I actually felt a few years ago that most products on the market didn’t do a damn thing, but now they actually do.

How does melasma start?

It starts with an insult of some sort, okay, physical or chemical. It could be the excess of to much sun. It could be irritation to something, which is actually technically called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, but sometimes it occurs without the inflammation so it’s something that some people…it’s just something they applied to their skin didn’t agree with them and then there’s a hormonal aspect to it, where birth control pills and pregnancy and puberty and high estrogen levels seem to be a trigger as well.
