Managing Oily Skin to Prevent Acne

A beautiful appearance begins with beautiful skin.  And an important part of having beautiful skin is maintaining the proper balance of natural oils.

When the body produces too little oil, the skin can become hard and cracked – too much, and the skin gets oily, pores begin to clog, and acne starts to make its appearance.

Within your skin are tiny glands called the sebaceous glands. Theey secrete a special type of oily matter to lubricate the skin and hair.  (The word sebaceous comes from the Latin meaning “lubricating oily matter”.) 

However, in some cases, these glands get carried away, producing more oil than is needed.  When this happens, it becomes essential to have a skin care routine that incorporates reducing oily skin and maintaining the proper moisture balance.

A proper skin care and acne regimen can do wonders to reduce or even eliminate problems caused by oily skin.

Special Acne-Fighting Facial Cleanser

Regular use of the proper facial cleanser can go a long way toward reducing excess oil and eliminating stubborn acne. Washing your face helps to remove makeup, dirt, and oil that has built up throughout the day. An acne face wash also gently removes excess oil and leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed.

A proper acne-fighting facial cleanser will:

  • Reduce excess oil and inflammation
  • Breakdown whiteheads and blackheads
  • Benzoyl peroxide fights acne-causing bacteria
  • Salicylic acid helps to exfoliate skin


Acne Gel

An acne treatment routine should include a method of directly addressing the problem, offering your skin what it needs to fight back.

Estala Skin Care offers an acne-fighting gel to help against even the most stubborn acne. 

The acne gel was created to give you smooth, even, and clear skin.

  • Great for balancing oily skin
  • Reduces discoloration and swelling
  • Unclogs and shrinks pores
  • Reduces inflammation and excess oil

The keys to this product are the three main active ingredients: niacinamide, salicylic acid, and lipoic acid. Each plays its own role in your complete acne-fighting routine.

  • Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, helps to shrink pores and even out skin tone.
  • Salicylic acid helps to exfoliate the surface of the skin and get rid of dead skin cells,
  • Lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that fights harmful free radicals, reduces redness, and increases blood flow for glowing skin.

Acne-Stop Cream

Next in the program is a good acne-stopping cream. Here, you will also be looking for a product that contains the strongest ingredients to:

  • Absorb excess oils
  • Reduce inflammation and redness
  • Fight acne-causing bacteria
  • Exfoliate the skin

This product helps to break down whiteheads and unclog pores, while also helping to stop oily skin problems by absorbing excess oil.

Acne-Stopping Facial Mask

No skin care routine is complete without a facial mask.  A great acne-fighting mask will leave your face feeling and looking smooth, hydrated, and radiant – while at the same time fighting stubborn acne.

What makes an acne-stopping mask special is a healing clay mineral, such as bentonite. Bentonite helps to absorb oil, draw out toxins, and unclog and shrink pores instantly, helping to prevent stubborn acne breakouts. Mixed in with the bentonite is benzoyl peroxide which kills acne-causing bacteria. Together they leave the skin cleaner and healthier than before.
