Slightly oily or T-Zone skin is characterized by some enlarged pores, especially around the nose, occasional blackheads or breakouts, and surprisingly - often dehydration in the deeper layers of tissue. When the skin becomes dehydrated, it attempts to seek balance by secreting excess oil from the skin's sebaceous glands. When oily skin becomes hydrated, it produces less oil because the sebaceous glands no longer senses the need to create hydration.
The foremost solution to create balanced oil secretion in skin is to drink plenty of water and eliminate dehydrating beverages such as caffeinated drinks, alcohol, soda or sugary drinks. The next step is to hydrate the skin topically. (See 'Lavender-Neroli Toning Mist'.) Third, is to use an oil-balancing moisturizer.
OM PUR balancing moisturizer includes sebum-balancing passion fruit oil, astringent herbs and essential oils to help reduce excessive oiliness while gradually balancing the skin's natural oil secretions. Lemon balm and other calming and antimicrobial ingredients help slow down sebum secretion and purify skin. You'll love the citrus-vanilla aroma! (15ml)
THE MYTH ABOUT OIL MOISTURIZERS
OM PUR's oil moisturizers are 100% pure and 100% active containing no 'filler' ingredients. Every drop is alive and highly energetic. Immediate and long term beneficial results are visibly noticed. A cream or lotion by contrast, has a large percentage of filler type ingredients, thereby limiting it's effectiveness compared with the 100% live ingredients in an active oil. It is not possible for a cream to be 100% pure or 100% active as it is with oil moisturizers.
THE SUPERIOR VALUE OF PURE OIL MOISTURIZERS
Other points that define the superior value of oil moisturizers are: (1) Oils do not require preservatives, cream and lotions do. (2) Oils can be cold-processed to maintain their full integrity and activity. Creams and Lotions must be prepared with high temperatures to create a bond between the water and oil ingredients. High temperatures during manufacturing diminishes or weakens any active ingredients included in the formulas.
WARMING UP TO OIL MOISTURIZERS
Warming up to using an oil as your moisturizer is easy when you understand the differences and experience the results. However, for cream users who find it difficult to make the switch, we have created a light cream as a transitional moisturizer that is made with only a small amount of wax. It has been our experience that when an individual who has always used a cream moisturizer switches to an OM PUR oil moisturizer for at least 2 weeks, the lighter feeling after the oil has penetrated, and the obvious results are so significantly different, they never want to go back to using a cream again.
