If you have oily or acne prone skin: 

  • The balanced skin protocol is your friend with a few customizations for optimal results: 
    • Dial up mask usage: 
      • You may want to increase usage of our Vitamin C Clay Mask which includes hydroclay to assist with sebum production. 
    • Choose one moisturizer format 
      • Choose cream or oil, but layering both formats may be too much hydration for your skin. 
    • Discover how our formulations were designed to balance your oily and acne prone skin: 
      • The chart below helps you see how each product is balanced with efficacious and sebum-reducing ingredients to help with your oily skin concerns.
    Product When Oily Skin Pros
    Step 1 Cleanser Day + Night

    - 2% BHA clears out oil and debris from skin and the pores

    - Enzymatic Paw Paw exfoliates excess oil from the surface

    - PHA and AHA exfoliate and illuminate skin - Won't strip skin which would trigger excess oil production

    Use 1 -3 times per week after cleansing and before applying serum
    Mask 1-3x per week - Night

    - Contains hydroclay which absorbs oil and decongests pores

    - Gently exfoliates to help with skin cell turnover

    Step 2 Serum
    Day + Night Some skin may only be able to tolerate this once per day and every other day

    - Contains 4% Niacinamide which has been studied to show oil production control

    - Non-comedogenic so it won't clog pores!

    - Tranexamic acid aids in skin cell turnover which helps to resurface and replenish skin

    Step 3 Cream Day + Night

    - Contains Zinc PCA which is shown to help control oil production, mattifying the skin and reduces blackheads and breakouts.

    - Ceramides mimic our skin composition and are therefore skin replenishers and are suitable for all skin types

    - even the most sensitive, breakout-prone, or oily skin.

    Alternate Step 3 (this texture may feel too heavy and may be preferred by those with dryer skin types)
    Oil
    Day + Night; although for oilier skin night time usage may be preferred

    - Cloudberry Oil, the predominant ingredient in the formula, provides hydration without clogging pores, making it suitable for acne-prone skin.

    - Contains Jojoba Oil: As a natural moisturizer and one that actually mirrors the molecular structure of human sebum, jojoba oil is ideal for use on the face. One of the key reasons that jojoba oil helps facial skin is that it doesn’t clog the skin’s pores. And the oil is rich in iodine, which is shown to tackle harmful bacteria growth on the skin’s surface.

    - The natural nutrients in pumpkin seeds, particularly zinc and vitamin C, help firm and tighten. Great for oily skin: That same zinc along with natural selenium helps with oily skin, helping it to look healthy and clean

     If you have sensitive skin (routine + dosage above applies with the following customizations

    • Key Gleamin Routine Alterations & Recommendations for sensitive skin:
      • Patch tests are your friend! 
        • Apply each product to the inside of your wrist for one to three days to see how your skin tolerates the Gleamin products. 
        • If you experience any redness or irritation, we recommend discontinuing the use of the product. 
      • Use the 15% Vitamin C Superactive Serum one to two times per week as you build up tolerance and adjust according to your skin. See how your skin does and build up usage slowly.
      • Only use the mask one time per week and it may be helpful to spot treat with the product on areas of the face experiencing a breakout, discolorations or dark spots. While the mask is not stripping and will hydrate, slowly build up usage as you explore your skin’s tolerance of a high-powered mask. 
      • Gleamin Safety Tests all products: 
        • All Gleamin products are tested in repeat HRIPT (Human Repeat Insult Patch Test) with a third party testing group and passed HRIPT showing no signs of irritation or allergic responses. 
        • This is a patch test conducted over six weeks where human subjects have occlusive patches containing test products applied to their back to identify irritation or allergy response. 
        • Gleamin products are designed to balance the power of Vitamin C and advanced actives with gentle soothing and skin-replenishing ingredients so don’t let the high actives deter you. 
          • Turmeric, found in all Gleamin products, helps with boosting radiance but it is also a skin-calming ingredient.
