What's the science?
Our body produces oil to help keep our skin soft and supple, but if too much sebum is produced, it can lead to acne flare-ups and oiliness. The next time you ask yourself "why is my face so oily?", remember that there are two main factors to blame: hormones and genetics. Oily skin is known medically as seborrhea and is caused by excess skin oil produced within the pores. During puberty and other life events, fluctuating hormones can result in increased androgen levels - androgens are considered one of the top oily skin causes. Androgens are male hormones present in both males and females that signal the maturation of the skin’s sebaceous glands. As these glands mature, oil production increases. The higher amount of androgens present, the more sebum is funneled through the pores, which then sits on the surface of the skin, creating an oily sheen. Should this excess oil become trapped in the pore and combine with dead skin cells and bacteria on the surface of the skin and inside the pore, pimples, blackheads, and other blemishes will form. It’s also important to note the role that genetics can play in oily skin. In most acne patients, the reaction to hormonal changes is dependent on genes and hormones. Life events like puberty or pregnancy can result in hormone fluctuations, and genetics and hereditary factors can determine how your skin reacts to these hormone fluctuations.
Tips for your Skin Type...
Cleaning your face daily with a gentle cleanser containing salicylic acid can help you cut down on oil production. It’s important to wash once in the morning, and once before going to bed to ensure all debris, makeup, and dead skin cells are removed from the face as they are some of the more common oily face causes.
Get Enough Sleep
Getting the right amount of rest each night is important to holistic health, and it also can significantly affect the look and appearance of the skin. Sleep deprivation can result in insulin resistance. Insulin increases can result in the creation of IGF-1, a hormone that stimulates an increase in the production of sebum.
Keep Your Stress in Check
Be sure to manage your stress, as it has been connected to insulin resistance and worsened breakouts in numerous studies. Exercise regularly, and make time for you!
Always Wear Sun Cream
No matter your skin type, it’s important to use daily SPF to keep your skin safe and looking its best. However, with oily skin, it’s important to take a look at the type of sunscreen you’re using to avoid blocking up those pores. Look for sun cream gels that are labeled oil-free.
This cream , along with the cleansing dew and exfoliating cleaner is excellent. It is light. easily absorbed and effective. Worth every penny

Would be good to try a similar set with an eye cream in.
I have only been using my 001 products for a week as I was finishing off some other skincare I had. I am absolutely loving everything I ordered and my skin is feeling really nice. Thankyou so much!

The redness and inflammation on my neck area diminished tremendously! Absolutely beautiful products and will re-order!
Definitely this product should not run out. I'm 50 and I've tried a lot of skin care products, but recently got acquainted with the products of Ada Ooi, I discarded everything. I just mist generously throughout the day (of course on a clean face and with serums) and enjoy. Everything is fine in it, and the smell is indescribable.
I love the smell and the luxury of it. I discovered it in lockdown and if it runs out there’s nothing else o prefer.
This actually feels like it cleans my skin but with a wonderful lightness
I use my Alpha glow serum with the micro Alpha glow system which delivers the serum deep in skin and non gets wasted it was a top up serum as I was running low the discount ir sale make it easy to buy more products it leaves skin soft and hydrated
