OILY SKIN? MEET OUR NEW BALANCING RANGE!
Here at Aurelia we are delighted to present you with our new Balancing Skincare Range which has been uniquely developed to target and support the specific concerns of oily and acne-prone skin.
We have three wonderful new products to share with you and we will guide you through the sumptuous natural botanicals carefully selected for each product and explain how they exclusively benefit your skin. For those of you who have always grappled with clogged pores and excessive shine, or those simply wanting to step into a lighter skin care routine for those sweaty summer days, this range is for you.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE OILY SKIN?
Tiny glands in our skin produce a natural oil called sebum, which helps keep skin hydrated and supple. Some skin secretes excessive sebum that overtime can build up and block pores leading to the accumulation of dead skin debris, resulting in blackheads and acne. For those with oily skin, the T-zone is often most affected (the forehead and nose region of the face) as the glands in this area tend to be most active. Although adolescents and young adults commonly have oilier-prone skin due to fluctuations in hormone levels, oily skin can affect any of us at any age, and a combination of environmental and lifestyle factors are influential.
For those of us with drier or combination skin, maintaining balanced radiance during the summer months can be difficult and we too are often prone to oilier skin. In hot weather, our metabolic rate increases and as our bodies try to keep cool we lose water through our skin as sweat. At the same time, raised humidity and heat provoke our skin to secrete more sebum than usual, which can leave skin with an oily and shiny appearance and also blocks pores and leads to blemishes. A lighter and more balancing summer skincare routine is recommended by dermatologists to help combat oily build-up and excessive shine, and our new Balancing Skincare Range is ideal for enhancing gorgeous, blemish-free, summer skin.
THE BALANCE & PURIFY CITRUS CLEANSER
This fresh citrus cleanser is designed to remove sebum, bacteria and other impurities, and bring back balance without dehydrating or stripping.
Manula oil forms the base of this beautiful and light weight cleanser. Naturally occurring from the manula fruit tree native to Africa, this oil is antioxidant-rich and extra nourishing. Manula oil is non-comedogenic, meaning it doesn’t sit on the surface of the skin and block pores, and by channelling fatty acids deep into your skin it helps to minimise scarring and assists with the fading of pigmentation.
LEMON PEEL POWDER
Lemon peel powder adds the final zest to this refreshing cleansing experience. Organic citrus plant acids offer gentle detoxifying and purifying qualities and help to absorb and remove excessive sebum production, minimising the shiny appearance of oily skin. Rich in vitamin C, lemon peel powder assists with the stimulation of new skin cell growth, enhancing radiance and boosting skin’s vitality.
THE BALANCING ULTRA-LIGHT MOISTURISER
This beautiful, weightless moisturiser provides the perfect solution for restoring equilibrium to oily or sun-exposed, sweaty skin.
Infused with witch hazel, this moisturiser reduces enlarged pores and tames excessive sebum production, protecting and relieving throughout the day. The power of witch hazel’s natural anti-inflammatory properties mean that redness, blotchiness, and sensitive areas are soothed, resulting in revitalised and refreshed skin.
The unique addition of mulberry to this delicately textured moisturiser means your skin is saturated with vitamins A, C and E. Mulberry helps to inhibit melanin production in areas where discolouration and pigmentation may be a problem (such as around the nose) and helps to fade blemishes. Mulberry also helps to combat skin oxidation that largely contributes to ageing and loss of elasticity, leaving your skin plumped, fresh, and ready to go!
THE PROBIOTIC BLEMISH HERO
Oilier skins are more prone to blemishes and spots and so this range includes a specialist treatment designed specifically for break-outs, swelling, and sore patches.
Zinc oxide is a natural mineral derivative rich in protective antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Zinc oxide helps to regulate sebum production and reduce microbial and bacterial triggers that can lead to acne. Zinc oxide stimulates tissue growth and repair and so helps reduce secondary acne infections. It also helps to support and nourish wound healing by tightening and toning enlarged pores.
The Protida probiotics work in harmony with salicylic acid, a plant-derived antibacterial and oil-soluble complex that works on dissolving excessive sebum and dead skin cell debris through gentle exfoliation. Salicylic acid features in all three products in our new Balancing Range, and nourishes and smooths resulting in a clear, harmonised and luminous complexion.
