Ask Caroline: Shine Bright, Shine Far

Hi Caroline,

When I was younger I had pretty serious acne for a period of time. Luckily, I haven’t experienced another severe outbreak in years but I still have oily skin and often wear makeup to cover the few remaining scars. Needless to say, I’m worried about inciting another round of blemishes. Am I a good candidate for oil cleansing and can this method help my oily complexion?

Hi Sally,
The last thing one would think of applying to skin suffering from an over production of oil is an oil based product. However, what most of us do not realize is that products containing natural botanical oils can actually help the skin to rebalance.

When the skin senses that it’s surface is well lubricated with a skin compatible oil it will naturally slow it’s own oil production!

Farmacy’s Clear Bloom is a unique oil formulation that, when mixed with water, “blooms” into a silky milk cleanser, gently and effectively removing makeup and leaving the skin soft and supple. The mixture contains both Echinacea GreenEnvy™ and Safflower Oil, a super moisturizing, natural solvent for oil-based makeup that leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft with no greasy residue, while aiding in the repair of the skin barrier function with essential fatty acids.
