Oily and Dry Skin
Which way is my skin going, oily or dry?
If you have oily and dry skin that can’t make up its mind on which direction it’s going, then we can help with products to help reduce the oil production and hydrate the dry to normal areas. It’s that simple.
In our findings, people with oily and dry skin often overcompensate by using harsh astringents that dry out the skin, to the point they “look like” they have adult acne.
When the oily areas are problematic, the right Guinot products will help open up the pores to cleanse and sluff off excess dead skin cells, to allow the other products to go in to do their job.
It’s really about balance. By re-balancing the skin, Guinot products absorb excess sebum (oil) and matify the skin, as well as purify and tighten the pores so makeup can be evenly and smoothly applied.
One thing to keep in mind, if you do not cleanse and purify the skin, bacteria and blackheads will build up to the point the pores will stretch and stretch. They will not return to their original size when this happens. Prevention is key to not having to work so hard at reducing the pore size. Makeup can clog up those larger pores and can be embarrassing when they are that large. Guinot products can reduce the size but not eliminate the stretched pores.
