It is a common misconception that people with normal/oily skin do not need to moisturize. Often people believe that moisturizing will further clog their pores. However, if you choose the right type of moisturizer for your skin, it will reduce the load so that your skin doesn’t need to produce as much oil.
Moisturizing to Reduce Oil
If you have oily skin, consider using our oil-free Matte Hydrator to keep your lipid barrier moisturized for longer so that your skin does not need to produce as much oil. Hyaluronic acid is a key component of your skin and can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. It is strong enough to pull moisture off the surface of your skin and deliver it deeper into your skin.
If you have had issues in the past whereby the hyaluronic acid sat on your skin or created a sticky film, this is because the hyaluronic acid is too large to penetrate into your skin. The Matte Hydrator uses 100% medical grade ultra low weight hyaluronic acid so it easily penetrates into your skin where it can bring moisture into your skin.
Moisturizing for Skin Repair
Generally people with normal/oily skin do not have issues with irritation or flushing/blushing. However, if you have used a product that damaged your lipid barrier, use the Protective Moisturizer. It is loaded with peptides (amino acid building blocks) that help to repair your skin.
This formulation was originally designed for our users on oral acne medication. After a month of consistent use, you will find that your skin tone has improved and your skin is a lot less prone to irritation or flushing/blushing
Understanding Your Lipid Barrier
The topmost layer of your skin consists of dead skin cells that are held together by lipids. These lipids serve as a “mortar” that prevents chemical or biological irritants from entering the skin and to keep water and natural moisturizing factors from leaving the skin. People with oily skin tend to have a strong lipid barrier but it can be weakened if you use strong cleansers or acids that damage the barrier. It can also be stripped if you wash your face with very hot water.
Once the lipid barrier has been compromised, this area of skin can become dry, flaky, itchy, sensitive or can easily turn red. Accelerate the healing/repair by using Clearly Basics Protective Moisturizer in order to get your skin back to top condition.

@amysacnehealing Yes I know the lighting is different but look at the difference in the texture 😍. Yes I still have acne, that hasn’t gone away however…the fact that my texture has improved has increased my confidence so much. I really do believe this is all down to @clearlybasics I’ve been using their power duo for about 3 weeks and I’ve noticed such a difference in the size of my acne spots…my face doesn’t hurt as much nor is as itchy as it was.
I would definitely recommend giving them a whirl it’s the only products that I can honestly say has made any difference to my skin. The difference it has made in 3 weeks is fab!
@aishx I have been using this product for the last 3 months and I swear by it!
My nasty pimps went away within days, my blemish marks were lightened and the size of my pores decreased drastically! In fact I feel that my skin brightened up a lot and my makeup looked smoother too!
@xx.tonilumsden This is me 5 weeks into my skincare journey with @clearlybasics.
5 weeks ago, 5 months ago, and even 5 years ago, I had lost all hope for my skin and appearance. Now I have regained that hope and positivity because I know that I am using amazing skincare products by @clearlybasics that actually do work without being harsh on my skin.
Just because you feel like nothing is working doesn’t mean you should give up on hope.
@myfriendacne At first I thought that my skin was THE thing that changed the most. It clearly is seeing from the surface. And here must say a huuuuge thank you to @clearlybasics for supporting me and give me the opportunity to take care of my skin.
After I looked at my pictures from last year I was shocked how my attitude has changed towards myself. I love myself more. I accept my skin, my body and my inner self so much more than a year before where I had the feeling to be perfect to my own imaginations and for other people.
@theclearskinroad My @clearlybasics update!! The photos on the left were October 2nd and the photos on the right were today (October 11th).
I’ve been using the Power Duo for Clearly Basics for about 2 months now, and now starting to see quick results! My favourite is the “Clear Out” 🤗 Loving the results and exciting to keep using Clearly products!
