All skin produces oil. This natural oil, or sebum, is important, as it helps to protect the skin from drying out, pollutants and other environmental factors.
Excessively oily skin however, can be difficult to manage. Excessively oily skin is shiny and is prone to blackheads and enlarged pores, which give the skin a coarse appearance.
There are many products for oily skin available today. Unfortunately, much of this mass-produced skin care for oily skin just dries the skin out, stripping away the natural sebum, causing the skin to become inflamed and irritated and produce more oil!
Facial Care By Sia’s oily skin care is designed to be different. Using all-natural, active plant ingredients, we are able to help balance oily skin without stripping away essential sebum, meaning you skin is healthy and pores are reduced for a more refined look. Visit us for a skin assessment today!
Oily skin can be caused by a number of factors, including hormones, some medications, skin care and heredity.
In this type of skin, the oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive and produce more oil than is needed.
Often chronically oily skin has enlarged pores, blackheads and pimples.
Oily skin treatments
Facial Care By Sia has a range of oily skin care products by Dermedix and CosMedix that are specifically designed to help clear excess oil without drying or irritating the skin.
Our Dermedix and CosMedix ranges of natural skin care contain the latest cutting edge, chirally corrected, optically pure actives from medical science and nature to protect, nurture, revitalise and cosmetically restructure your most precious asset. Made in Australia, these cosmeceuticals are completely free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, propylene glycol, petrochemicals, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances and are not tested on animals.
Perfect for getting rid of congestion and excess oil is Purity Clean, an oily skin cleanser by CosMedix. This cleanser contains AHAs to gently lift dead skin cells and sebum, while peppermint oil naturally kills bacteria and calms inflammation.
Purity Balance is a toner for oily skin with an anti-bacterial action from natural Tea Tree Oil. It also contains L-Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid that exfoliates, unclogs follicles and brightens the skin!
Try Clear, a facial mask for oily skin, also by CosMedix. This super absorbent, detoxifying clay face mask for oily skin is fortified with a blend of sulphur and minerals. Dab on as a spot treatment at night, or use as a mask to help dry, clear and exfoliate your entire face.
CosMedix’s Phytoclear is a clarifying moisturiser for very oily skin. This unique formula is especially beneficial to those suffering from acne. This cream for oily skin hydrates the skin whilst reducing oil and bacteria, and stimulates collagen for blemish repair.

It gently cleanses without stripping away natural oils, helping to stop oily skin.
Tips for oily skin
Many people’s natural instinct is to try and ‘dry out’ their oily skin. So they slather on oily skin products and face masks for oily skin, which contain the same chemicals you use to wash your dishes.
Oily skin needs to be nurtured, NOT tortured.
An oily skin care routine needs to be simple. Gently wash your face using a face wash for oily skin morning and night only. Do not be tempted to cleanse more often than this, as you will stimulate more oil production. Be sure the cleanser you use does not contain parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, propylene glycol or petrochemicals, which will strip away the skin’s natural protective layer.
Following your cleansing routine, be sure to apply a light, oily skin serum, which helps to regulate sebaceous glands.
Use an enzyme mask for oily skin once or twice a week to lift oil, dirt and to unclog and refine your pores. You may also wish to come in to Facial Care By Sia for an oily skin facial. Using the latest technology and all-natural skin care, we can gently balance and repair your oily skin, reducing oil and refining pores.
The fact is, if you treat your oily skin with kindness and don’t over-dry it, the oil will naturally reduce over time.
