We all know that healthy skin should glow, not shine.
But if you struggle with a skin-type that’s particularly oily, you may find yourself grappling with that undesirable latter.
You see, the sebaceous glands in the skin work to produce natural oils that the skin needs to stay healthy, called sebum. But, if those glands produce more sebum than what the skin surface area actually needs, the diagnosis is overactive sebaceous glands.
The cause for this overactivity in the production of oils, can be caused by a number of factors, like, stress, hormonal imbalances, even pollution - just to name a few.
The right moisturiser, and the proper application of it, will get your shine back to glow in no time.
The Pond’s Institute has developed a range of skin-care products developed just for the oilier skin-type – find your ‘skinspiration below

Which Moisturiser Can I Use For Oily Skin?
When it comes to what to look out for in a moisturiser – particularly when the build-up of oiliness is your specific skin problem – here’s a quick top tip guide:
- Make sure the moisturiser you choose is lightweight and easily absorbed.
- Stay away from ingredients like shea butter, linoleic acid, coconut oil and olive oil – the so-called comedogenic additions – as these can block pores.
- Go for a moisturiser that includes a Sun Protection Factor – or SPF – for even more protection.
