NENA Skincare and Oily Skin - How Glacial Clay Can Help Reduce Sebum
There are all sorts of tests out there for determining what type of skin you have, but if you have oily skin, you likely don’t need a test to let you know. Oily skin is the result of an overproduction of sebum on all or part of your skin and can be a frustrating skin concern to manage. The good news is that because your skin is constantly “hydrating” itself, you may also find that your skin is less susceptible to wrinkles and lines. While glowing skin is what many people are looking for, if your skin looks shiny by mid-afternoon most days, this means that you are likely to have oily skin.
The NENA Skincare features Glacial Clay that has clinically proven results to reduce skin surface sebum, and is therefore perfect for oily skin. Read on for how a simple and regular skincare routine including NENA can help to balance your skin for your best complexion.
Glacial Clay and Oily Skin
Clay has long been used for its ability to draw out impurities and toxins from the skin, so it will come as no surprise that a regular application of a clay mask like NENA’s Glacial Clay Mask is well suited to those with oilier skin. Some clay types such as Bentonite can be unnecessarily harsh on your skin, and draw too heavily from your skin. This can cause irritation, dryness and may even trigger your skin to produce more oil.
NENA uses natural and ECOCERT-certified Glacial Oceanic Clay that uses its ionic properties (negative charge) to draw out the excess sebum and skin’s impurities (which are positively charged), leaving the clean and soft. On the other hand, the clay also uses gentle osmotic action to hydrate and nourish the skin with its 60 plus glacial mineral elements, moisturizing the skin on a deep level.
Moisturizing Oily Skin
As with other skin types, a great moisturizer is still key for oily skin. You will want to look for a moisturizer that does not rely on heavy oils, but rather a cream that is light and easily absorbs into the skin. The NENA Moisturizing Cream does just that. It contains Glacial Mineral Water which features the same 60+ minerals present in glacial clay. The formulation is enhanced with skin hydrating and nourishing Jojoba Oil as well as Aloe Vera, which is known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Toning Oily Skin
Oily skin is also more prone to blackheads and enlarged pores. Both of these skin concerns can be improved by a regular application of a toner like NENA Mineral Toner. It includes a blend of natural botanical extracts that helps to clarify and firm the skin, leaving it more balanced and toned.
These straightforward steps and natural products will allow you to simplify your skincare routine while addressing the concern of an oily complexion. Often the simplest approach is the best, and the natural and powerful benefits of Glacial Clay and Glacial Mineral Water present in all of our products work seamlessly together to get you a healthy glow!
