The 4 Most Common Skin Concerns

Chances are your skin has experienced one or more of these skin concerns. Here’s how to tweak your Roe Routine to keep them under control.


#1. Oily Skin

What to do about skin that’s looking more greasy than dewy? Let’s first dispel two pretty major skin myths about oily skin. First up, the one about needing to dry out oily skins with harsh, alcohol-based astringents. This can actually make your skin go into oil-production overdrive and make matters (even) worse. Secondly, many oily types think that using a moisturiser will make their skin even oilier, shinier and possibly lead to breakouts so they skip this important step altogether. Yet all skins need moisture and that includes oily types.

To manage oily skin, follow cleansing with an alcohol-free toner like our Lifesaver Skin Brightening Toner. A hint of organic Witch Hazel and Peppermint Oil helps to control excess oil and shine while 2% Glycolic Acid keeps congestion under control by gently exfoliating the surface layers of the skin. When it comes to moisturiser, it’s about finding one that’s on the lighter side — like our oily-skin-friendly hydration option: Stoked Weightless Moisturizer. Fucogel delivers and preserves weightless moisture in the skin without clogging pores while SebuStop (a blend of three root vegetables) helps to reduce excess oil and visible pores, along with antibacterial powers.

#2. Blemishes & Breakouts

For many skins, #1 invariably contributes to #2; though not only oily skins experience breakouts or acne. They can be caused by myriad factors including hormonal changes, medication, and inflammation. Regular exfoliation is a great place to start to help keep skin clean and clear. Our Byron 2-in-1 Mask + Scrub is a physical exfoliant to lift off dead skin cells and refine skin texture and tone with gentle biodegradable Jojoba Beads. Antibacterial botanicals Peppermint, White Tea, and Grapefruit clarify and protect. You can also leave it on for 15 minutes as a detoxifying mask for a deeper clean and DIY skin treat.

When skin is feeling and looking irritated or you’ve had an acne flare-up, our Tama Healing Mask is full of anti-inflammatory agents like Curcumin and Australian Manuka Honey to soothe, calm, and boost skin resilience while Avocado Oil nourishes and restores hydration.

#3. Ageing

The rate at which your skin ages is determined by a mix of genetics and environmental factors such as UV exposure and pollution. While you can’t change your genetic inheritance, you can definitely address how those external elements affect your skin and any visible changes you notice. The biggest contributor to premature ageing is exposure to UV rays which is why we created our very own sunscreen for dependable daily protection. Barrier Reef Daily Facial Shield SPF50+ is a clean, paraben-free mineral formulation that shields skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays, pollution, and blue light and boosts antioxidant protection with Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and Kakadu Plum. And we don’t step outside without it.

Premature skin ageing tends to show up in the skin in the form of uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. That’s where our Surf Chaser Reverse Aging Serum can help reduce and refine those visible signs. Botanical Retinol alternative Bakuchiol delivers the skin-refining benefits of Vitamin A without the associated irritation. A stable form of Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Glucoside) helps to even out tone and fade hyperpigmentation while Matrixyl 3000 peptide helps to restore skin condition and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

#4. Dry Skin

Dry skin is both a skin type and a condition and by that we mean that it’s either a constant or something that can happens to your skin due to a sudden change in environment, medication, or even hormones. Ensuring your Roe Routine includes nourishing formulations and effective hydrators will instantly soothe the tightness you might feel, the rough skin texture, and any flakiness. Our Noosa Nourishing Crème Cleanser is boosted by a blend of anti-inflammatories (Calendula and Arnica) and hydrators (Jojoba Oil and Oat Leaf) for a super-comforting clean.

We have a range of moisturisers to suit different skins and hydration needs but dry skins especially love Nuddy Ultra Repair Creme for its instantly calming effect, concentrated texture, and decent dose of hydration (Hyaluronic Acid and Castor Oil). It’s a nourishing night cream or a go-to for eczema flare-ups or dry patches.
