Oily skin is caused by overactive sebaceous glands that are affected by hormones, humidity, heat and even stimulation by aggressive scrubbing or washing.

Excessive oil in the skin may cause blemishes and breakouts. However, stripping the skin of oil may cause it to produce more oil which why it should be treated with a fine balance.

Learning how to care for oily skin takes time and patience while you try to find the products and treatments that work best for you.

The recommended treatments depend on various factors (social downtime, urgency to address concerns and budget) and will be discussed during consultation.
