Oily Skin

What is Oily Skin?

Oily skin is the result of the overproduction of sebum from sebaceous glands. These glands are located under the skin’s surface.

Sebum is an oily substance made of fats. Sebum isn’t all bad since it helps protect and moisturise your skin and keep your hair shiny and healthy.

Too much sebum, however, may lead to oily skin, which can lead to clogged pores and acne. Genetics, hormone changes, or even stress may increase sebum production.


What causes Oily Skin

Not only during puberty is the skin frequently knocked out of balance, an unhealthy diet, hormone level fluctuations or daily stress often leads to oily skin as well. A tendency towards follicular hyper-keratosis, excessive sebum production and excessive bacterial infestation of the skin flora are regarded as the three causes, which promote blemished skin. This is where care cosmetics can and should be sensibly applied.
