The solution to combat unstable oily skin problem

by Grace Sundram

When it comes to the question of how to balance your skin’s natural oil and water level, many of us tend to get confused and lost and end up using the wrong products that can help worsen our skin condition. It’s important to know what skin type you are and from there you can get the right solution.

But the question is, what causes oily skin and why do you have it?


If you noticed that your skin emits a little extra shine, well that is because the sebaceous glands under your pores produce too much of natural oil. What is also known as sebum, the natural oil is supposed to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. But too much of something good can also be bad for your skin. Within hours of cleansing, you would start going through several blotting sheets a day.


Excessive sebum could also lead to breakouts when it gets mixed with dead skin cells and gets stuck in your pores.

No matter how thoroughly you cleanse your face, the most likely reason for you having oily skin is probably ’cause you inherited the trait and it was passed on through your genes. Apart from that, you could also blame the humidity and hot weather, your lifestyle factors as well as you over-washing your face.

So what can you do to control the problem?


The solution is to find the right product that is suitable for your skin type and in this case, this skincare product doesn’t just soothe redness and reduce breakouts but it is also able to stabilise the skin’s oil production. As it contains Hyaluronic Acid and extracts of Hatomugi, Bishop’s Weed, and Chamomile — the Hada Labo Blemish & Oil Control Hydrating Foaming Wash and the Blemish & Oil Control Hydrating Lotion is the miracle worker for those who are battling with oily skin.


With just two pumps of the foaming wash, it will cleanse away impurities and oil without stripping the skin’s natural oil. Whereas the lotion will lock-in and replenish moisture as well as tightening pores and lessen acne, roughness, redness and dullness.

Plus this range is pH balanced and free from all fragrances, colourants and mineral oil. Keep in mind though, this blemish and oil control collection by Hada Labo is only suitable to be used for those with oily and blemish-prone skin.

Long story short, all your skin needs is the right product and care.
