Do you have oily skin? Oily skin has a shiny appearance with clearly visible, enlarged pores. It can be prone to clogged pores and breakouts. Oily skin is caused by excessive sebum production, which in combination with bacteria, can lead to acne. Oily skin usually does not show signs of premature ageing.
The challenges of oily skin Using unsuitable products can make oily skin worse. Comedogenic (pore-clogging) cosmetics, as well as hormonal imbalances, can exacerbate the condition. Incorrect use of drying products or harsh use of face cloths can result in ‘over stripping’ of the sebum and lead to dehydration.
Dehydration can also be caused by an unhealthy diet low in essential fatty acids, medication, insufficient water intake, long hot baths or showers, central heating and air conditioning or extreme weather conditions.
Quite often sebum production slows down in later life. It is vital to ensure that our skin care regimen is adjusted accordingly to avoid over drying of the skin.
