Two Ingredients For Oil-Free Skin – Grape Seed Extract And Bamboo Leaf

Everyone has oil on their skin. Each of our pores contains what’s called a “sebaceous gland” that produces a natural oil called sebum. This oil is good for your skin, keeping it healthy and hydrated. 

But sometimes, these glands can produce too much oil, causing your skin to look wet, shiny, and greasy, even shortly after you’ve just washed your face. 

If you have overly oily skin, you may be wondering what you can do about it. Well, I’m here to help! I’m going to tell you about the causes of oily skin, along with two incredible natural ingredients that can help stop your skin from being so oily. 

Let’s start with what may be causing your oily skin… 

7 things that cause oily skin

Genetics – Research indicates that if a parent has oily skin, you’re more likely to have oily skin as well.

Age – As we age, sebum production slows down. While this allows for less oily skin, it’s also why those who are older tend to have dry skin. As such, if you have oily skin, your skin may actually age slower! 

Where you live – If you live somewhere hot or humid, then your skin is more likely to be oily.

Enlarged pores – Larger pores tend to produce more oil.

Bad skincare products – If you have oily skin, don’t use oil-based products or creams that are too heavy.

Overdoing your skincare routine – If you’re washing too much, you’re stripping away your natural oils. And while this may seem like the right thing to do, it can actually put your sebum production into overdrive while your glands try to make up for the lost oil. 

Skipping your moisturizer – Similarly, if you’re washing but not moisturizing, your glands may be forcing themselves to work overtime to boost oil production. 

While these may cause oily skin, what can you do to stop them? If you have oily skin and feel like you’ve tried everything to no avail, keep reading! There are two ingredients that can help you lower the amount of oil on your skin. 

Ingredient #1: Grapeseed oil

What is grapeseed oil?

Grapeseed oil is a type of vegetable oil derived from the seed of, you guessed it, grapes! Tons of grapeseeds are put aside by the wine industry each year, and the beauty industry gets to take those seeds and make an oil out of them to help, among other things, reduce the oil in our skin. 

How does grapeseed oil reduce oily skin?

It may seem like fighting fire with fire to use a type of oil to reduce the oil on your skin, but it actually works!

One of the main reasons is that grapeseed oil is a good source of linoleic acid. Sometimes called vitamin F, linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid – an essential omega-6 fatty acid that is needed for the proper function of the body.

One of the functions in the body that linoleic acid is responsible for is sebum production. It helps balance the production of oil in the skin, which is why people with skin that is either too oily or too dry tend to have low levels of this omega-6 fatty acid. 

Additionally, linoleic acid helps make your sebum thinner. Sometimes sebum is produced too thick, and it gets caught in the pores, causing build-up and acne. But linoleic acid helps prevent your sebum from building up.

If you want to boost linoleic acid levels and help regulate sebum production while ensuring your sebum isn’t so thick that it’s causing pore blockage, make sure you’re taking a natural ingredient like grapeseed oil that’s high in linoleic acid.

Ingredient #2: Bamboo leaf extract

What is bamboo leaf extract?

Bamboo is a plant native to Asia, and its leaves offer several health benefits, especially for the skin. It’s often included in beauty products because it’s a natural source of silicon dioxide, also known as silica, which boosts collagen production, increases skin strength, and boosts hair growth. 

But it also has another benefit – reducing oily skin.

How does bamboo leaf extract reduce oily skin?

Outside of promoting general health for the skin, bamboo leaf extract helps to reduce oily skin by sending what are called porous particles to the skin. These natural particles actually absorb excess sebum from the skin when your glands make too much, allowing you to have balanced skin even if too much oil is produced!
