With this skin type, you have increased sebum production. The skin surface is often uneven and is characterized by the fact that the skin easily becomes glossy and shiny. Especially the skin in the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) quickly feels oily and shiny after you have cleansed the skin and applied cream. Oily skin often has large pores, and is more prone to blackheads and pimples.
With the right skin care, you can regulate sebum production and achieve a balanced skin. This minimizes breakouts of pimples and blemishes.
It can be challenging to find skin care products that suit oily skin. Many people with oily skin overtreat the skin with strong products. This causes the skin barrier to weaken and the skin reacts by increasing sebum production. The result is that the skin becomes even shinier, and often red and irritated. A weakened skin barrier can also lead to increased acne formation and impurities.
The first step on the way to balanced skin for you with oily skin is to avoid drying out/dehydrating the skin. Facial products must provide sufficient moisture. Many people with oily skin avoid fatty acids and oils in skin care products, because they are afraid that their skin will become even more shiny. In fact, certain fatty acids and oils can be effective for oily skin. The fatty acids help retain moisture in the skin and provide a soft skin surface. The oils used should have good absorbency and the fatty acid combination should have low comedogenicity. This means that the fatty acids should not lead to increased acne formation.
Wrinkles and lines often develop later in people with oily skin than in other skin types.
Oily skin often has an overproduction of sebum. Getting control of sebum production is one of the most important treatment goals in skin care for oily skin.
Cleanse the face 1-2 times a day with a facial cleanser that creates an optimal base for the skin. WASH the day off facial cleanser is gentle on the skin while providing an effective cleanse. Removes make-up, dirt, dead skin cells and waste substances that collect in and on the skin. Avoid using products that dry out the skin.
