What is Oily Skin?
Oily skin is acne-prone skin that contains open pores, pimples, blackheads, and a shiny complexion. There are sebaceous glands under each of our pores producing sebum, a natural oil. When a person has oily skin, their sebaceous glands are enlarged, producing too much oil, causing the skin to feel greasy and appear shiny. Oily skin tends to be hormonal, as your hormone levels affect oil production.
How to Treat It?
A common misconception to treating oily skin is to dry it out, which makes it even worse! Drying out the skin triggers it to produce even more oil to compensate, best treatment would be to hydrate it the skin so it isn’t producing as much oil as before, creating a balance.
Oily skin requires more cleansing, but it’s most important to balance out the barrier function by hydrating the skin.
Using the correct skin care products for oily skin can make a huge difference in controlling the amount of oil to the face. It is also common for people with oily skin to experience breakouts due to the excess sebum mixing with dead skin cells and clogging the pores. iS Clinical and SkinMedica both carry products that cater to oily skin and help to control it.
