COMBINATION AND OILY SKIN

Oily skin is skin that produces too much sebum.

This skin type is genetic, but it may also be caused by both internal factors (hormonal changes) and external factors (warm, humid climates, use of cleansing products that are too aggressive or inappropriate for the skin type and which leave the skin unbalanced).

Oily skin results in shiny skin, especially on the T-zone, enlarged pores, skin imperfections (blackheads, localized irritation), and a dull complexion.

“Combination skin” occurs when the T-zone is oilier than the rest of the face.


How should I clean my combination or oily skin ?

Every morning, use the Soapless Facial Cleansing Bar to remove impurities and excess sebum that has accumulated during the night. Then, apply the Grapefruit Toning Lotion over your entire face, avoiding the area around the eyes, or the Lotion with Tropical Resins , paying particular attention to the T-zone and small imperfections.

Each night, remove your makeup with a skincare product specifically designed for the fragile area around the eyes (like Gentle Eye and Lip Make-up Remover ) to remove all traces of makeup. Next, use the Cleansing Milk with Sage to remove the rest of your makeup and eliminate impurities. Then, apply the Grapefruit Toning Lotion over your entire face, avoiding the area around the eyes, or the Lotion with Tropical Resins , paying particular attention to the T-zone and small imperfections.


Which daily skincare products should I use for my combination or oily skin ?

In order to gradually regulate combination skin without drying it out or dehydrating it, twice a week you should use a product that is adapted to this skin type and leaves the skin balanced, matte, and hydrated. The Tropical Resins Complex prolongs the purifying action begun by the skincare products used during the cleansing process and ensures that the epidermis remains comfortable and appears matte. It is also an excellent base for makeup.

In order to ensure that combination skin is hydrated, apply a specific complementary product once or twice a day (such as Hydra-Global or the Moisturizer with Cucumber . These skincare products allow the skin to maintain proper hydration.


How can I protect my combination or oily skin ?

To keep skin looking younger, longer, apply Sisley’s “anti-aging shield”, All Day All Year, year round. It protects the skin and helps combat the harmful environmental stressors that it encounters daily.
