Are Zoe Bee Creams too oily for your skin?

A lot of people are surprised when I say these creams work for every skin type, even oily or acne-prone skin.

Because sebum is oil-based, these creams help to balance your skin (like dissolves like). Many people with acne or oily skin may be surprised to find the outer layer of their skin is actually dehydrated. Excess sebum production makes skin feel oily, but sebum is made in the lower layers of the skin and it is only a small part of your skins moisturising system. The natural fatty acids and lipids that bind the outer layer of the epidermis must be intact to prevent excessive moisture loss that leads to dry skin which cracks (on a microscopic level) allowing pathogens in, which cause spots. If you suffer with spots or acne, you may be surprised to find it is actually due to dry skin, even if your skin feels oily.

A great way to combat this is to combine the Coffee and Clay Scrub with your favourite Zoe Bee Beauty cream. Use the scrub regularly to exfoliate and clear away any dead skin clogging up pores. This allows the creams to do their job and get deep into the skin. Initially, the creams may feel quite heavy. Using just a pea-sized amount will help to balance and heal your skin. Oil dissolves oil, so the ingredients in the creams will be perfect. As the creams draw impurities to the surface, whilst balancing your skin you may go through a purging stage. That means, for the first few days, your skin may get worse before it gets better. But once your skin has adjusted and balanced your skin will look and feel beautiful.
