Shine on the skin occurs when there is an overproduction of sebum, a substance produced by our oil glands. We usually experience shiny, oily skin in our forehead region, along the nose, and along the chin, where the oil glands in these areas are bigger and more active. When our oil glands produce the right amount of oil, they function effectively to moisturize and protect the skin from the environment. In excess amounts, sebum can cause skin care problems and unwanted shine.
Our genetic make-up determines how much oil our skin will produce and as a result, some individuals naturally produce more oil than others. However, there are products available that can help control a shiny complexion. Exuviance Matte Perfection is a light, oil-free pore minimizing primer that quickly absorbs excess oil and minimizes the appearance of pores, transforming oily skin into a smooth matte complexion. The key ingredient is Mandelic Acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), which helps minimize shine while smoothing the skin. Exuviance Matte Perfection glides easily over or under moisturizer, can be worn under makeup as a primer, or over makeup to impart a fresh, shine-free finish.
At night, you can help normalize your skin with Exuviance Night Renewal HydraGel. This lightweight gel contains Phytotal®, a blend of oil-reducing ingredients that help decrease excess oiliness and shine while helping to retain the natural moisture in your skin. Beneficial Mandelic Acid offers help controlling oil production to reduce shine, and give you a smoother, healthier looking complexion while you sleep.
