If your skin is oily, here is our selection of mattifying and anti-impurity face creams

If yours oily skin makes you desperate, you may have to revise your skin routine. Each skin type, in fact, has beauty products and active ingredients of choice. The fact is that often those with skin with a tendency to impurities and a shiny finish (especially on the T-zone) let themselves be carried away with super foaming detergents and scrubs that are not defined as aggressive. All this only increases the production of sebum: an automatic and defensive response of the skin, which however results in pimples, blackheads and oiliness. The solution? Welcome the best creams for oily skin. And, I recommend, before applying them, clean your skin with delicate products. You will notice the difference very soon.

Oily skin, the choice of the best creams for the summer

We asked Marta Padellini, Spa Manager of the Executive Spa Hotel in Fiorano Modenese, to start by debunking the most resistant myths about oily skin. “Want to know which is the first and the hardest to die? Those with oily skin don’t need to hydrate it. False! Impure skin needs hydration. What matters is choosing products with low percentages of oils and light textures that are quickly absorbed. Also pay attention to the common belief of massive and daily exfoliation in the presence of oily skin. Ok peeling and scrub, they are very useful and should not be demonized, but be careful not to overdo it. By dint of exfoliating the skin, in fact, you seriously risk making it reactive and sensitized, leading (as already mentioned) the sebaceous glands to hyper-produce sebum, as well as creating sensibility rashes. Face creams that are friendly to oily skin contain natural active ingredients such as sage, with astringent, purifying and antioxidant action; lavender, soothing and antiseptic; calendula, soothing and moisturizing; tea tree oil, purifying and antibacterial; aloe vera, refreshing, calming and deeply moisturizing. Better to keep a monthly appointment with the beautician for a professional facial cleansing and keep away from creams rich in vegetable oils and butters, enemies of oily skin “.
