OILY/ACNE PRONE SKIN
You have Oily/Acne Prone Skin. Your main issue is figuring out a routine that can control your excessive shine and prevent acne without drying you out.
Your Ideal Daily Routine looks like...
STEP 1 - Cleanser
look for sulfate, oil free gels or foam cleansers — good enough to cut oil but not enough to dry you out. This is important because oil breeds bacteria and bacteria leads to breakouts so it’s necessary to do a thorough cleaning. However, drying ingredients can trigger skin to work harder to produce more oil.
STEP 2 - Exfoliant/Toner
look for something like Salicylic acid — natural exfoliant gets rid of dead skin cells. Or anything that’s alcohol free with ingredients like sodium PCA (humectant to hold water), geranium (essential oil good for cutting oil) and witch hazel (astringent without drying).
STEP 3 - Moisturizer
look for something with long lasting hydration with matte finish. All you need is light moisturizing humectants and no mineral oils.
Why Radiate? Our aloe vera gel is balanced to match your skin's natural pH between 4.2 to 5.8, lavender regulates sebum secretion and star ingredients like witch hazel and tea tree creates a cleansing and nourishing moisturizing experience.
STEP 4 - SPF
look for broad spectrum sunscreen with Zinc Oxide, that blocks UVA and UVB rays. Zinc Oxide will leave a more matte finish and it's a natural antibacterial good for people prone to breakouts.
