Skincare concerns regarding oily skin are not just reserved for those in their teens. When hormones are imbalanced, this can lead to the sebaceous glands producing excessive amounts of oil, which of course leads to oily skin and bingo- blocked pores and breakouts!
So, whilst you obviously cannot stop oil production, implementing a few simple skincare products can reduce the oil you see and feel. We make nailing smooth, flawless skin easy! You’ll be ticking that box in no time.
Here’s the list of our Sporteluxe go-to products.

Sporteluxe Tip: You may not believe it, but a stressful life can lead to increased oil production. Since stress causes the adrenal glands to overproduce cortisol, leading to the sebaceous glands producing excessive oil. Take some time to relax, practice yoga, enjoy some tea time, or even have a relaxing soak in your bathtub. Love the skin you’re in, beauties!
