What Facial is Good for Oily Skin?

Our Delaware dermatology office suggests an exfoliating facial if a patient has oily skin. The benefits of an exfoliating facial are endless, but these specific facials are great for unclogging pores and removing dirt and excess oil to prevent future breakouts. Also, including an acne extraction facial, a client will receive professional acne extractions and exfoliation to ensure glowing and healthy skin following the treatment.

What is an exfoliating facial?

Combining an exfoliating and acne extraction facial will help fight the clogged pores and excess oil buildup causing severe breakouts. Exfoliating will clean the dead surface skin cells, resulting in a healthy, beautiful complexion and glowing skin. When dealing with oily skin, a client wants a facial that uses salicylic acid and niacinamide to help with oil buildup and prevent future breakouts.

Benefits of Salicylic Acid on Oily Skin

Salicylic acid is ideal for deep skin exfoliation. This topical penetrates the skin loosening the desmosomes that hold the skin together between cells in the outer layer. The dissolving of these dead skin cells unclogs pores as well as a range of many other benefits.

  • Exfoliates the skin
  • Fights severe acne
  • Reduces oily skin
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation

Benefits of Niacinamide for Oily Skin

When dealing with oily skin, niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 essential for cleansing the skin because it helps maintain healthy cells. Niacinamide helps maintain oil control and prevents skin from becoming too oily, causing clogged pores. This vitamin helps the skin’s clarity over time and helps fight off blemishes, acne-prone skin, and overproducing oil.

  • Improve skin hydration
  • Natural anti-inflammatory
  • Prevents premature signs of aging
  • Maintain oily skin

How often should you get an exfoliating facial with oily skin?

When suffering from severely oily skin and acne, our dermatologist in Newark Delaware, suggests physical or chemical exfoliating at least three times a week, but nothing more. When seeing a professional for an acne extraction facial is another benefit for our clients skin. They should receive a treatment every two weeks until they see a change in their skin, then can revert to once a month.
