Proper care for oily skin

Not only does it feel uncomfortably oily, greasy skin also leaves visible traces, for example on the mobile phone display. The cause is too active sebum production. But be careful: Aggressive cleaning will further stimulate them! The trick is to balance your oil and moisture balance with the right care.

How to recognize oily skin

You have...

  • Despite cleaning or matting, the skin quickly regains its shine.
  • Large, clearly visible pores.
  • Skin often pale or sallow.

☝️ If you also have blemishes, please read our care recommendation for impure skin.

Oily skin - your care routine with FIVE in the morning

  1. CLEAN: Wash your face ONLY with lukewarm water, even if your skin has produced a lot of sebum overnight!
  2. CARE: With the oil-free moisturizing facial serum in combination with our facial oil for impure and oily skin you are well equipped, because the active ingredients play an important role here: We use ingredients that balance, inhibit inflammation and have an antibacterial effect, such as rose water, jojoba oil and black cumin oil . Use face oil more sparingly in summer than in winter.

Oily skin – your care routine with FIVE in the evening

  1. CLEAN: Resist the impulse to forcefully degrease your skin! Because she will fight back. No makeup? Then it is sufficient to wash the face with lukewarm water. Otherwise, gently remove makeup with natural makeup remover.
  2. CARE: Only use the light facial serum so that your skin can devote itself to skin regeneration at night.

Oily skin - special care

Oily skin deserves special treatment, but please gently and without aggressively drying products:

  1. Treat yourself to a clarifying mask with green clay once or twice a week. Rinse thoroughly with water before it dries up! You can get pure clay in the pharmacy or in the health food store.
  2. A facial steam bath frees the pores. Fill the spaghetti saucepan 2 fingers deep with water and bring to the boil. A teaspoon of salt or a bag of chamomile tea provide a disinfecting effect. Remove from the stove, hold your face in the steam - not too close or you'll burn yourself - towel over it and steam for 10 minutes. Then rinse your face with cold water and apply a moisturizing serum.
  3. Peeling is also allowed, but caution is called for here, because they dry out and unnecessarily stimulate sebum production if you mean it too well!
