It seems there is little we can control in life. From lockdowns to the daily weather, the economy to when the next season of The Crown is released. But when it comes to skin, it is nice to know there are products that can help control the oil on our face.
Is your skin shiny at the end of the day?
More glitter ball than inner glow?
Oil erupting into spots?
The Clear Skin Intensive Oil Control Cream is a refreshing option for acne-prone skin. It may seem counterproductive, but a moisturiser might just be what the oily skin is craving. Dry and dehydrated skin only encourages the glands to produce more oil so it is important to keep skin hydrated. Dehydrated skin can also block pores and because our glands deliver oil through these pores, the result is congestion and a lackluster complexion.
Thankfully, the Intensive Oil Control Cream is loaded with oil-regulating ingredients including Niacinamide, Mushroom extract, Vitamin B complex and Bakuchiol which works double-time as an anti-ageing ingredient as well. Worried your breakouts are causing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIHP)? The Intensive Oil Control Cream has you covered there too. Containing Alpha-Arbutin, licorice extract and Vitamin C to help reduce post blemish pigmentation and even out skin tone. Topped off with a refreshing scent of lemon myrtle and tea tree.

A double whammy of anti ageing and anti acne, retinol really is a miracle product. It requires patience, however, as it takes several weeks to see results. La Clinica’s range starts at 0.2% and offers up to 1%. The Essentials Pure Retinol is perfect for first-timers or those who are worried about skin flare-ups due to its oil format. Or if you prefer a serum, try the Potent 1%. Read more about our love for retinol here.
