How to Care for Congested Skin
On a daily basis, your skin is fighting against environmental pollutants, sweat, and pore-clogging makeup. And if you have oily or congested skin, it is already combating blockages in the pores from excess sebum and dead skin cells. Finding products that can effectively but gently clear skin’s buildup can be a difficult task. Even products that are labeled non-comedogenic, water-based, or oil-free might still have irritating ingredients that can exacerbate your skin condition. We recommend you use products that are customized to address your complexion’s particular needs, which is why Dr. Harold Lancer has drawn from his extensive experience as a world-class dermatologist to create the optimal routine targeted for oily skin.
Dr. Lancer has taken his revolutionary three-step skin care system, the Lancer Method, and formulated it specifically for oily skin. The Method: Oily-Congested targets pore congestion and minimizes oiliness while also nourishing your skin so it looks radiant and refreshed.
What Is Congested Skin?
Before you set out to eliminate all traces of oil or shine, you should know that everyone’s skin needs some level of oil. It can even be beneficial to your complexion. Without it, your skin would look dry and lose its smooth, soft texture. But when too much oil is produced, it can obstruct the pores and stimulate the growth of bacteria. Combine that excess oil with dead skin cells, makeup, pollution, and sweat, the pores become clogged. In this state, your skin will be prone to acne or blemishes and look dull and uneven.
It is important to realize that oily congested skin can be attributed to a number of factors such as genetics and hormones or lifestyle factors like stress, diet, sleep, and medication. Though certain aspects are out of your control, there are steps that you can take to help keep your oily skin under control.
Caring for Congested Skin
In order to return balance to your skin, it’s important to get to the root of the problem, which means clearing out your clogged pores. The best way to clean the surface of your skin and clear your pores is with a gentle exfoliant. The goal is to resurface the skin without over-drying it with harsh chemicals or irritating it with rough physical exfoliants. With the right polishing product, you can buff away environmental traces and surface oil, including dead skin, makeup, or other debris. An effective polishing product will offer physical and chemical exfoliation without abrasion, helping to clear your pores and fight off congestion while preparing the skin for cleansing. Your exfoliator should also be formulated with nourishing ingredients that hydrate your skin. Once your skin is prepped for moisture, it’s imperative to use a product that isn’t too heavy or thick but still provides superior hydration.
