Summer scrubbing | face cleansers for oily skin

Keep sebum production under control this summer with Fountain face cleansers for oily skin. Our go-to cleansers, exfoliants and masks help reduce excess oil to reveal a radiant glowing complexion.

Does your face take on a shine all of its own in summer? Does the hot weather cause you to break out in pimples? Oily and combination skin types naturally produce excess oil, known as sebum, and during the warmer months of the year sebum can flow quite freely. This can create a sheen on the surface of the skin and cause pores to clog with a build-up of sebum, resulting in blackheads and blemishes. To minimise excess sebum, it is important to balance the production of oil without drying out the skin – which can produce even more sebum! A good skincare regime using Fountain face cleansers for oily skin can reduce the amount of oil produced by overactive sebum glands. Step outside and enjoy summer without the fear of blemishes. Embark on a skincare routine today with our beautiful products designed especially for oily and combination skin.


Cleansing skin morning and night removes impurities and helps control sebum and prevent blackheads. Our hydrating Foaming Cleanser removes dirt, oil and sunscreen, and is suitable for oily to combination skin types. Use plenty of water to form a lather, apply to the face then rinse off. For those who don’t like foaming cleansers, we suggest our Cleansing Gel.


Removing dead skin cells by gently exfoliating will also help in the battle to control sebum. It is important to choose products that don’t strip the skin however, as that can result in the production of even more oil. After cleansing, apply our gentle Skin Exfoliant to the face, paying special attention to the T-zone. Our non-abrasive facial exfoliater contains natural occurring AHAs to even out skin tone and texture and give skin a fresh, healthy appearance. Massage in a circular motion then leave for 10 minutes before thoroughly rinsing. We recommend using the our exfoliant one to two times a week.


Clay and charcoal masks are great sponges for excess oil. Clay is naturally absorbing, while activated charcoal has the power to draw out impurities from the skin, such as dirt and oil that clog pores, making it a superior ingredient in the treatment of acne. Fountain Charcoal Clay Mask can be used 2-3 times a week, but is gentle enough to use every day. Apply a generous amount to the face and leave for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. The result is thoroughly cleaned skin that is soft and smooth, ready for hydration.


Oily skin needs moisturising to prevent sebum from over producing, however it is important to use a moisturiser specially designed for oily and combination skin. Fountain's non-irritating Actual Moisturiser helps control excess sebum and regulate long-term sebum production. It contains an intelligent blend of antioxidants, vitamins, botanical extracts and natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to help reverse the signs of aging and prevent trans epidermal water loss to maintain moisture.
