Hello beautiful!

Let’s get to know your skin better!

By the time you finish watching this video and checking out this page, you’ll know:

  • The benefits of being a daylily
  • What specific actions to focus on to achieve balance as a daylily

  • Our top product picks for daylilies
  • Extra daylily specific resources

Let’s get started with this video…

 

You’ve landed here because you can say yes to at least 4 of these points

  • You would describe your skin as being oily (either all over, or specific areas like your t-zone)
  • Your breakouts are either mild or moderate
  • Breakouts tend to be consistent and / or cyclical (happens in a pattern)
  • You are prone to having blackheads
  • Your pores appear enlarged and more noticeable
  • You constantly feel like there is a build up of dead skin cells
  • Your skin feels oily within a few hours of cleansing

Benefits to being a Daylily

  • Your skin produces a lot of oil. While this comes with its downfalls, it also means that you’re less likely to show signs of aging as fast as those who have dry skin.
  • Your skin tends to be a really good communicator. It lets you know when something’s wrong; it’s just about learning how to read the signs.
  • While dealing with acne is not an easy chore or fun, Daylilies tend to have better emotional balance in dealing with the little things in life. You’re use to a challenge and find rolling with the punches slightly less overwhelming.

Your top 3 focuses for balanced skin

  • Balancing your oils: Your skin’s flora (a.k.a. your skin’s micobiome) is likely to be a major contributor to your breakouts – you could have in imbalance or skin could be extra sensitive to p.acnes bacteria or substances secreting out of your pores like excess hormones, impurities, and cellular waste. Externally, your skin will produce more oil if your lipid barrier is damaged. Look for healthy oils that will help repair your lipid barrier, there by reducing the amount of oil your skin generates – which in turn will give bacteria less to feed on. Internally, it’s likely that the excess production of oils are related to internal challenges with hormones and other factors, so learn to understand the correlation between what’s happening inside and your skin. Bonus tip: to balance your skin’s micobiome look for ingredients that are proven to help like the powerful anitoxidant vitamin B3 (Vitamin B3 has also been shown to repair our skin’s barrier function so you can’t go wrong with including topical vitamin B3 into your routine).
  • Exfoliating enough AND properly: You want to make sure you’re providing exfoliation every time you are cleansing your skin. This doesn’t mean you need to reach for an abrasive scrub each time you wash your face. In fact, this can perpetuate inflammation in areas that you are experiencing breakouts. Look for products that contain fruit enzymes. These are completely non-abrasive and are actually able to exfoliate inside your pores. This will help remove blockages and debris that can clog pores and lead to new acne. (For the record, pineapple is our favourite enzyme).
  • Hydrating your skin: While hydration is a key component to any skin care routine, your hydrating products should be boosted with other acne fighting ingredients. Look for hydrators that contain antibacterial and soothing ingredients alongside the hydrating properties (our Cystic Acne Mask is a perfect example).

Top 3 pitfalls for a Daylily

  • Not having a fully balanced routine! Every skin care routine needs to contain a cleanser, exfoliator, hydrator and skin moisturizer. Each piece is interconnected and missing just one of these can perpetuate your skin concerns. Not sure how to build a balanced routine? Build your routine with our FREE Routine Builder.
  • Ignoring your skin’s communication signals: Breakouts are caused by some form of inflammation in the body. Whether it allergies, hormones, gut health, there is a reason that’s deeper than the surface. Start listening and tracking your skin’s reactions to certain situations, products, environments and more. Pinpointing the causes and triggers behind your breakouts may take some time, but you can get there! This also means you never want to solely focus on topical solutions for your breakouts. While they can help in the short term, they can’t provide long term, sustainable solutions without internal healing too. Interested in learning more? Sign up for our Roadmap to Radiant Skin Workshop.
  • Over cleansing: People with oily skin are more prone to this bad habit. Twice a day is all your skin needs. More than this and your skin can become stripped, leading to a whole other plethora of challenges. Over cleansing can also mean using harsh detergents, overly abrasive scrubs and alcohol. These can dry out your skin completely or cause an even bigger increase in oil production because your skin is trying to make up for what you’ve stripped away. Stick with gentle cleansers that not only leave your lipid barrier intact, but also provide additional benefits for your skin, and don’t over use them!
  • Avoiding oils all together: This is a common misperception for people with oily skin. Your skin produces excess oil to repair a damaged lipid barrier (your skin’s natural oil barrier) or when your skin is having a hard time holding on to hydration (aka water). When healthy, natural oils are present, your lipid barrier can repair itself and your skin will adjust its secretion levels. Just make sure the oils you decide to use aren’t in a formula with pore clogging ingredients (as a side note, at Batty’s Bath we specialize in creating products rich in lipid barrier repairing oils while omitting any ingredients or ingredient combination that will clog pores).
