Oily/Problem Skin

Oily skin is a problem for millions of people worldwide.  It is difficult to control because it’s 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.

While healthy oil production is beneficial for your skin, it is 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

The appearance of acne varies with skin color.  Hereditary factors are thought to be involved in about 80% of the cases.

Caring for Oily/Problem Skin

The first step is a gentle cleanser without sulfates.  Many with oily skin incorrectly believe that their skin is dirty and wash too often with harsh cleanser and exfoliants.  This will damage the skin and cause it to produce even more oil.

After cleansing, NeoGenesis Recovery, abundant in S²RM®  technology, is perfect to naturally restore balance within the skin, reduce inflammation and 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.  Recovery used twice per day after cleansing will help to quickly heal the skin, thereby reducing the chances that scarring will occur.

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 part of healthy skin.  Keeping it hydrated will not trigger more oil production.  Aggressively treated skin that may be oily but dehydrated will signal the hormones to produce more oil, keeping the problem ongoing.  A light application of our Intensive Moisturizer may be used as needed after Recovery for any dry areas.


NeoGenesis Product Reviews

CG-sm“I struggle with hormonal acne and have tried every acne product under the sun and got little relief. I started using Recovery and discontinued my use of all other products to really see if it was going to work. Within one week I noticed a reduction of my acne scars, smaller pores, all around better skin texture. I have also integrated the Skin Serum into my daily routine and my results seem to be getting better and better. I love any skin care product that is not only results-driven but good for my skin, these products are now “must-have’s” in my beauty routine.” – CG

“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

“My son is 14 and his acne was getting out of control. We did 3 laser treatments and started the Cleanser and the MB1. WOW what a difference. His face is getting smoother and clearing up. At 54 I still break out and am now using the Cleanser, Skin Serum, Intensive Moisturizer and MB1. Loving it!”~ NM

“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

“I want to tell you about a female client in her mid 20’s who suffers from cystic acne since her teens. She has an oily T zone with large pores. She also has overgrown / thick facial hair, and suffers from ingrown hair which probably contributes to some of the breakouts. I had done a few facial treatments with some progress on her. I was then able to include RECOVERY and SKIN SERUM in the last 2 treatments. Her skin isn’t as oily and I see there are fewer cystic pustules. Very exciting! I sent her home with RECOVERY! I will keep you posted with her progress.”  ~ MV

“The NeoGenesis Recovery serum is the most amazing product I have ever used. I am on day 4 and every morning I wake to noticeably diminished acne scars. I have 20 + year old ice pick acne scars practically healing before my eyes. It is incredible, exciting and just shy of miraculous. This is more like a medicine than a skincare product … but I’m oh so happy I can get it without a prescription. Thank you NeoGenesis, Inc.”  ~ ALA

“I have really enjoyed using the NeoGenesis product line. I have used a number of the products and have good results even though I have ultra-sensitive skin, some dry areas as well as an oily T zone. The sensitivity of my skin trumps all the other issues. I struggle finding products that I can use with my skin, but I have had not issues with any of the NeoGenesis products. People have been commenting on how good my skin looks so the results are noticeable.   In the past when I have attended make-up or beauty days at a department store searching for a foundation, I always have to get samples because I always have a reaction to something they use on my face. Then the process I went through took several days to get my face calmed down using my regular products. The NeoGenesis products are the first products that have kept my skin calm when testing makeup. I am not sure why, but what a pleasant surprise.”  ~ PC

“My skin has drastically changed after using NeoGenesis skin care products! I suffered with cystic acne for the majority of my adulthood and it has completely disappeared. The texture, scars and pigmentation of my skin is incredible. People do not believe me when I tell them what my skin USED to look like before… To hear “But you have great skin” over and over is by far the best compliment I could ever receive! Never did I think that was even possible.  I am sooo ready for some more happy skin juice!”  ~ LV

“I have Fordyce Spots on my lips and have been using Recovery on them for about a week now (once a day). The spots have decreased significantly in size. I am hopeful they will disappear altogether. I’ll keep you posted.” ~ ALA

“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
