Why Oily Skin Can Benefit From Vitamin C Serum?
Oily skin sufferers struggle to know which products to use and typically avoid hydrating creams and serums. So we asked Dermalogica’s Education Executive, Victoria Schofield, to bust some oily skin myths and let you know if the new Biolumin C Serum is suitable for combination and oily types to use.
Dermalogica’s Education Executive has 5 reasons why oily skin sufferers might want to give the new Biolumin C Serum a go.
1. Serum is not the enemy of oily skin
Biolumin C Serum is a light hydrating fluid - not an oil - so will feel very comfortable. Often, oily skin is dehydrated due to use of stripping products and harsh cleansers. When oily skin is dehydrated it actually produces more oil to compensate for the lack of hydration, making you breakout. Especially if you are going through menopause and have breakouts on your chin, you may have dehydrated skin. Healthy skin has a perfect balance of oil and water so hydration is key balanced skin. Biolumin C Serum contains hydrating ingredients such as chia seed oil which is rich in antioxidants and contains more than 60% omega 3 fatty acid - one of the highest concentrations of this nutritious, thirst-quenching must have. This will make skin look and feel comfortable, supple and happy so that you can feel confident in your complexion.
2. Oily skin is not exempt from free radical damage
The increase of skin damage and inflammation from free radicals in the everyday air may exacerbate any oiliness and cause more congestion and breakouts. Defend skin with Biolumin C Serum which contains a unique Ultra Stable Vitamin C Complex - that is, 2 types of new generation vitamin C ingredients combined with a clever anti-wrinkle peptide. In short, this clever type of vitamin C helps skin protect against free radicals, stopping your oily skin from getting harsh wrinkles.
3. Oily skin suffers post acne scarring
Biolumin’s Ultra Stable Vitamin C Complex interferes with melanin production and so can balance the overproduction of it, evening out skin tone. It’s Ultra Stable Vitamin C Complex also aids in wound healing - meaning this is great for breakout prone skin. Try it on an area where the acne has begun to heal over, but has left a red or purple mark - the results are incredible and leave you feeling wonderfully proud of your clear skin.
4. Grease isn’t the same as glow
The brightness and increase in luminosity that occurs when using Biolumin C Serum comes from the Ultra Stable Vitamin C Complex combined with Lactic Acid, resurfacing the skin and smoothing skin texture, Boliumin’s Ultra Stable Vitamin C Complex brightens skin from within rather than by leaving a dewy or oily residue on the surface.
5. Matte isn’t always the answer
Whether you want matte skin or not is personal preference. If you like a matte look, that’s fine just make sure your skin isn't dehydrated to keep it healthy. Equally, you can also obtain a fresh, glowy look by reaching for hydrating, oil free formulas (rather than oil absorbing/mattifying) and boosting radiance with Biolumin C Serum.
