Oily + Problem Skin

Oily skin is a problem for millions of men, women, and young people worldwide. It is difficult to control because it is the result of genetically determined hormonal changes in your body, and you simply cannot control hormones topically. The hormones responsible for oily skin are called androgens and they are present in both men and women.

Healthy oil production is beneficial for your skin. It becomes a problem when too much oil is produced. An excess of oil production leads to larger pores and a thickening of the pore lining that can result in blackheads and pimples.

Not all oily skin becomes acneic skin, however the two are often present together. Acne, called acne vulgaris, is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. Typical features of acne include:

  • seborrhea (increased oil secretion)
  • microcomedones
  • comedones
  • papules
  • pustules
  • nodules (large papules)
  • scarring
  • inflammation

The appearance of acne varies with skin colour.  Approximately 80% of acne cases are thought to be hereditary.

Caring for Oily or Problem Skin

The first step is a gentle cleanser without sulfates. NeoGenesis Cleanser is good for all skin types and all skin conditions, leaving the skin clean and nourished without stripping the skin. Many with oily skin incorrectly believe that their skin is dirty and wash too often with harsh cleansers and exfoliants. This will damage the skin’s barrier and cause it to produce even more oil.

After Cleanser, NeoGenesis Recovery, abundant in S²RM®  technology, is perfect to naturally restore balance within the skin and may help post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). PIH is the red and brown marks that remain from acne lesions and can be present on the skin for many months after the pimple is gone.  NeoGenesis Recovery serum used twice per day will reduce the chances that scarring will occur.

After applying Recovery, incorporate one of our two acids, either Mandelic Acid 8% or Salicylic Acid Gel. We suggest introducing one of these at a time, and to be used once a day for the first 2 weeks. Once the skin has adjusted and if needed, you may use up to twice a day. If choosing to use Mandelic Acid 8%, you can also use Salicylic Acid Gel to spot-treat the area of the pustules and comedones.

People who have oily skin often steer clear of moisturizers, worrying that they’ll make their skin worse.  Oily skin doesn’t need oil, however, it does need hydration.  Hydrated skin is a must for healthy skin. Keeping it hydrated will not trigger more oil production. Aggressively treated skin often appears oily and dehydrated at the same time. This will signal the hormones to produce more oil, keeping the problem ongoing. A light application of our Light Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream to help give the skin the hydration it needs. Always follow with a chemical-free sunscreen during the day.

Before + After - Acne“We have dramatically changed the skin in a matter of 9 weeks. You will start to see how the blackheads, whiteheads, and underlying congestion of the skin have dramatically improved, if not disappeared. This is 9 weeks of using NeoGenesis on the skin topically. We have not treated the skin with any treatments. This is something we have never experienced in all of our skin education before.” ~ Donna Glazer, Face it Skin Clinic

“Amazing serum!! I use this morning and night on my face and neck. Recommended by Morgan to help with my skin recovery from acne breakouts. The benefits are amazing, redness from acne has faded, my deeper lines are softer and it has minimized the lines around my mouth.” ~ CS – Art of Skin Care

“After hearing lots of positive feedback about NeoGenesis on a Facebook group I belong to, I decided to give their products a try. I ordered samples of NeoGenesis Skin Serum, Eye Serum, and Booster.

I bought these products hoping that they would be calming and combative against some post acne marks I have. I’ve been using the Skin Serum and Eye Serum for about a week and a half. I’m really happy to say that my post acne marks have begin to fade! Also, the Skin Serum is very soothing for my Rosacea and I always wake up with a glow!

I reached out to the company because I had some questions about their products. I was so surprised that Steve the CEO of NeoGenesis took time to answer all of my questions! He’s very kind and caring and you can tell he really cares about helping people achieve beautiful skin!

I’m really excited to see where my journey with NeoGenesis takes me!” ~ KR

Before + After - Acne“This client is struggling with Acne grades 2-3. His skin is very shadowy and patchy, with a lot of dullness to his skin. This is strictly just using the products AM and PM.

If you look at the overall tonality to his skin, you can see a huge improvement with the discoloration. The tonality of the skin looks a lot more even, looks bright, and there’s also a little bit of radiance, more of a healthy aspect to the overall skin tone.” ~ Annkeit Ssharma – Shamin Skin Care

“I can’t thank Port Wellness in LA enough for recommending the NeoGenesis Recovery Serum for my problem skin.  I’ve noticed a tremendous improvement. I barely wear any concealer and foundation now – the scars have faded a lot and it even helped to expedite the healing of pimples currently plaguing my facade.    Because of the results I have seen using NeoGenesis Recovery Serum, I don’t need to use nearly as much of my green color corrector as well. The deep red/brown of the scars have turned into more of a “freckle” like color. There is no foundation on my right cheek – where I had a series of break outs.  The texture of my skin is soft, and I notice that “glowing” sensation that I cannot remember having. I’m so happy with the products. Thank you so much!”  ~ J

Before and After - Acne - MB-1“My mom introduced me to Pam and I was excited to try a new product for my acne. My skin felt red and irritated a lot, with pimples most of the month. All of the products I tried from the drug store made me dry and “peely”. The MB-1 is very easy to use and feels good on my skin. It soothed my redness right away and I saw my breakouts begin to heal the first week. I got fewer new breakouts too and when I did, they were much smaller, without the redness and irritation I normally get. One of the things I liked the best was how much better my skin’s texture looked and felt. My pores seemed smaller and my skin is smoother. I wasn’t expecting that and I was thrilled with my overall results.” ~ KS

“My client, a diabetic with cystic acne, called me yesterday to tell me that she has had this one for over two months and after using Recovery twice it’s already going down and doesn’t hurt like it did! I want everyone I know to be in this regimen. This is why I became an esthetician. Not for fluff (which I know has benefits) but to really help people and give them their confidence. Thank you for giving me the tools to easily obtain that!”~ AM

Before and After - Acne Professional Feedback: “This client struggled with acne from the ages of 14-19, and then her skin cleared until age 24. She started seeing breakouts again, mostly hormonal. Her skin would clear up for a couple of months and then the acne would return when stressed.

Since starting on the NeoGenesis products, she now feels a huge difference. She is very impressed and very happy with the results and is sold on the line.” ~ Mariam Abbas
