Why is it important to cleanse oily skin?

When it comes to taking care of your oily skin, cleansing is a step that should never be skipped or missed, darling!

When your skin type is oily, your skin produces higher amounts of sebum (your skin’s natural oil) which helps to lock moisture into your skin. Too much of it can clog your pores and could leave you more prone to blackheads, spots and greasiness – particularly when it mixes with everyday skin aggressors like sweat, dead skin, bacteria, dust, pollution or excess beauty products like skincare, sunscreen and makeup! Cleansing your skin twice a day with the right products and techniques is the best way to remove these impurities for skin that’s HEALTHY, HYDRATED and BALANCED.

Cleansing your skin also leaves you with a perfectly cleansed canvas for applying the rest of my skincare and makeup products. This helps my MAGIC skincare ingredients to soak into your skin and also makes my beautifying makeup products look better and stay in place for longer!
