Gel Cream or Lotion - Should you moisture an Oily skin?
In the world of beauty one thing is certain: when it comes to skin, our needs and preferences are varied. What suits one skin type isn’t certain to be the best option for another; in fact, it may be the opposite of what the skin needs.
Generally speaking, you know how your skin feels but the signals it gives out provide mixed messages. Often the route to finding what you need can be fraught with potential breakouts, oilier skin and uneven texture, so let us (the experts) guide you in the right direction. Because, let’s face it, skin is a complicated organ lets treat it like it deserves.
"The Lumi Acne Clinic is all about less is more when it comes to applying products. Acne patients have a tendency to over-wash, over-scrub, and over-exfoliate. They also often over-treat with acne medications, both over-the-counter and prescription." our expert skin technician Michelle comments
"Your first consultation takes you through a detailed set of questions regarding your previous history with acne and breakout, the products you have used in the past and what you would like to achieve. The biggest discussion often includes the discussion about surface moisture. So many people avoid hydration in the event it might stimulate oil.. We need to remember water/hydration and oil production are two separate things. With the appropriate product you can control both.
Light weight, slightly matte moisturiser such as Natasha Cook Concentrated Moisturiser is an excellent choice for a skin that suffers bursts of oil without the constant battle with papules and pustules. For more severe acne breakout we recommend a specialised skincare range that includes a treatment cream that acts as a anti-inflammatory whilst maintaining skin moisture levels at the same time.
It might all sound rather complicated and well to be honest it can be... its quite a recipe of products to get the best results. Most clients use a max of 2-3 products to achieve the results they desire - we just select those 2-3 from an abundance of amazing skincare products available. Its a skin experts knowledge and passion that will enable that selection to ensure you achieve results
