Do you ever feel like you’re in a never-ending struggle against the persistent shine on your face? If so, you’re not alone. Oily skin is a common skin type that affects many people. While it can be frustrating to deal with, the good news is that with the right skin care routine and skin products, you can effectively manage oily skin and achieve a healthy, balanced complexion.

We’re here to guide you through everything you need to know about oily skin, as well as provide the best way to care for it with skin products that are sure to make a real difference.

Understanding Oily Skin

Oily skin is characterised by an overproduction of sebum, the skin’s natural oil. This excess oil can lead to a shiny complexion, enlarged pores, and an increased likelihood of blemishes and acne. It tends to have a greasy texture and may feel slick to the touch, particularly in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin). It’s important to remember that oily skin can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender, and it’s often influenced by genetics and hormonal changes.

What Causes Oily Skin?

Several factors contribute to the development of oily skin. Genetics play a significant role, as some people naturally produce more sebum than others. Hormonal changes, particularly during puberty, pregnancy, or menstruation, can also stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Furthermore, stress, diet, and environmental factors such as humidity and heat can exacerbate oiliness.

Common Causes of Oily Skin

Overactive sebaceous glands:

The sebaceous glands produce sebum to moisturise and protect the skin. However, in individuals with oily skin, these glands can become overactive, leading to excessive oil production.

Hormonal changes:

Fluctuations in hormone levels, such as during puberty, menstruation, or pregnancy can stimulate the sebaceous glands and increase oil production.


Oily skin can run in families, with certain genetic factors influencing the size and activity of the sebaceous glands.

Environmental factors:

Humidity, heat, and pollution can all contribute to oiliness by stimulating the sebaceous glands and causing sweat to mix with oil on the skin’s surface.

Using harsh skin products:

Overuse of harsh or drying skin care products can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to rebound oil production and exacerbating oiliness.

Exuviance Clarify Range

Exuviance offers a comprehensive range of oily skin products specifically formulated to address the unique needs of oily skin. The Clarify range combines powerful ingredients to control oil production, minimise pores, and promote a clear, balanced complexion. Here’s how to incorporate the Exuviance Clarify range into your skin care routine:

1. Cleanse with the Clarifying Facial Cleanser

Start your skin care routine by thoroughly cleansing your skin with the Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser. This soap-free, foaming cleanser is enriched with Gluconolactone, Salicylic Acid and Mandelic Acid to exfoliate oily skin and unclog pores. It effectively removes excess oil, impurities, and makeup without stripping the skin’s natural moisture and pH balance.

2. Treat with the Clarifying Spot Gel

For targeted treatment of blemishes and acne, apply the Exuviance Clarifying Spot Gel to affected areas. This potent spot treatment contains a blend of Salicylic Acid, Pro-Vitamin A, and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) to clarify pores, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. It helps to quickly diminish the appearance of blemishes and prevent future breakouts, leaving your skin clear and smooth.

In the evening, finish your skin care routine by moisturising with the Exuviance Night Renewal Gel.

4. Protect with the Sheer Refining Fluid

In the morning, shield your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays with the Exuviance Sheer Refining Fluid SPF 40. This light, non-greasy pH-balanced fluid with broad-spectrum sunscreen is quickly absorbed into the skin, providing anti-aging benefits and protecting against sun damage. Its key ingredient, patented NeoGlucosamine®, gently exfoliates the skin to promote cellular turnover, diminish dark spots, and increase clarity.
