The ViaBuff Level 1 Extra Gentle Exfoliator is recommended for oily skin.
Why You Need to Exfoliate Oily Skin
Exfoliation is one of the most important skin-care steps for oily skin.
Oily skin is the result of overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands. It can be a nightmare to live with, particularly in the summer months, when the heat leads to increased skin inflammation and sebum production.
As the skin continues to secrete oil, over time, oily skin may have a thick layer of built-up dead skin cells on the surface. Enlarged pores may also result.
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, dirt, sebum, and debris on the surface of the skin.
Why Your Current Treatment Isn’t Working
Chemical exfoliators often contain ingredients like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and retinoids in extremely high concentrations, near or at the U.S. FDA limits. These chemicals can often be too harsh for oily skin, stripping the skin of too much oil. The result? Your skin reflexively produces too much oil.
Using the ViaBuff exfoliator allows you to customize the level of exfoliation you need. To remove dirt, sebum, and debris but maintain enough oil to keep the skin healthy, we recommend the ViaBuff Level 1 Extra Gentle Exfoliator. The ViaBuff is designed to be a gentle, effective way to remove dead skin cells, dirt, sebum, and debris on the surface of the skin, without using chemicals.
Can I Use the ViaBuff with My Existing Acne or Oily Skin Treatment?
Think about it this way: If you are applying a salicylic acid serum to non-exfoliated skin, it can’t get to the skin cells. Instead, it is resting atop years of accumulated dead skin cells, as well as more recent dirt, debris, and other particulate matter. Gross! And ineffective!
But once dirt, debris, sebum, and dead skin cells are removed from the skin’s surface, the resulting skin has just the right pH balance and moisturization level. The clean surface and the natural skin oil that linger dissolve your favorite oil- or water- based acne or oily-skin treatment, allowing the ingredients to reach your skin to do effective work.
The result? Beautiful, healthy skin — faster.
