Oily skin can be difficult to maintain and treat. Serums and products ideal for normal or dry skin can cause breakouts in those with oily skin. However, this does not mean that people with oily skin cannot or should not use hydrating products, it just means they need to find the ones that work best with their skin. It is also recommended that people with sensitive or excessively oily skin work with a professional. So, what serum is best for oily skin?
It ultimately depends, but a basic hydrating serum with some additional light exfoliants can help reduce oiliness while adding good moisture to the skin. Our ferulic acid serum is great for this because it contains hyaluronic acid which is largely non-irritating and ferulic acid which can help reduce oiliness over time.
Nianimicide is also a frequent recommendation for those with oily skin. Though, this should be used carefully to avoid irritation. However, it can be a great agent that both dries the skin and offers nourishment. It is also available in prescription doses from a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
