Oily Skin Treatment
If you find that your forehead becomes shiny it may be that you suffer from overactive sebaceous glands. They produce the sebum that makes your skin look shiny and greasy with visible open pores.
It may be worse across your T-zone (made up of your forehead, nose and chin) as your sebaceous glands are more concentrated in this area. The shine may also be worse in the summer months when you perspire more and sweat and oil are more likely to pool on your skin.
How to prevent oily skin to minimise the shine on the skin.
There are several options to reduce the skins sebum secretions to prevent and minimize oily skin and keep your skin less shiny.
Adopting a good skin care regime is important.
Oily Skin Care Guide
Cleanse The Skin
Cleanse twice a day — morning and evening. Do resist the temptation to wash every time you see shine. Over-washing can trigger pores to produce even more oil.
Tone The Skin
To remove excess oily residues use toner on damp cotton pad across the face and neck. This not only helps remove excess oil but removes any remaining dirt and makeup, without stripping your skin of essential moisture.
Protect The Skin
Moisturise the skin. It helps replace moisture lost during cleansing. Apply an oil-free, water-based moisturiser with a broad spectrum SPF in the morning to keep skin hydrated and protected from the sun.
Treat The Skin
It is important to choose the correct night treatment cream. We recommend a vitamin A night cream to reduce the skins secretions of sebum, rejuvenating the skins collagen and elastin fibres, as you sleep.

I really liked how she asked me what scented oil I wanted with my massage.Was a nice personal touch! The pressure was good- firm as i like it and I left there relaxed, feeling pampered and wanting to book another asap. Thanks again Donna !Klaire Louise Kampbell
