Optimising the skin barrier for a balanced, vibrant complexion
Most skin conditions are driven by two common factors — chronic inflammation and a damaged skin barrier. Many people consider their skin type to be "oily," meaning enough oil is produced to be visible throughout the day. For decades, people were taught to deal with oily skin by using products intended to stop oil production in the skin altogether, often damaging the skin barrier in the process.
The problem with this approach is that the skin uses oil as a form of protection along with an inflammatory response. The more the skin is dried out by these products, the more oil and inflammation will be produced as the skin overcompensates to protect itself — leading to a vicious cycle.
The key to regulating overactive oil glands without creating more injury to the skin is to address inflammatory factors and a damaged barrier using non-irritating products like Epionce. All three powerful Epionce ingredient technologies — Anti-inflammatory, Barrier Repair and Keratolytic — can be used together to help mitigate excess oil in the skin, leading to healthy and balanced skin.
Tips for Oily Skin
• Apply a moisturiser daily; Renewal Lite Facial Lotion addresses triggers of oily skin and provides the right amount of hydration for optimal skin health.
• Avoid harsh ingredients and exfoliating beads or brushes that tear skin and stimulate more inflammation.
• Use sunscreen daily to protect the skin barrier from exposure to additional inflammatory factors.
