If you are an adult or teenager with oily, imperfection prone skin, the pharmacy is a great place to come for advice. As a trained skin expert for La Roche-Posay, I have the confidence to advise the right skincare routine for all forms of oily skin. It is important to know that oily skin can present itself in different ways, from shiny skin with open pores to blemish prone skin. Following a good skincare routine is a must. The majority of customers I see with oily skin tend to have blemishes and often have tried and tested may different ranges in search of clear skin, but have yet to be satisfied.
A range I highly recommend is Effaclar from La Roche-Posay because of the choice of products and proven results. It is really important to cleanse oily skin with a cleanser that respects the skin’s pH level to avoid drying it out; the Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel is one of our most popular cleansers for oily skin. It effectively removes impurities while respecting skin sensitivity. It can be used on the face and body, so good for those who have imperfections on the chest or back. The hero product in La Roche-Posay for blemished prone skin is Effaclar Duo+. This daily moisturiser will keep skin hydrated while refining the skin texture and unclogging pores, its anti-inflammatory active ingredients work to reduce blemishes. The texture is fresh, non-greasy and non- comedogenic, allowing it to be absorbed instantly into skin.
