Do you know anyone who runs away at the sight of the lens? There may be many reasons why some people do this. Tiday we will focus on one reason - skin.
Oily or seborrhoeic skin is characterized by excessive production of sebum. The reason is an excessive amount of lipids in the skin. The sebum layer clogs the pores, resulting in the formation of blackheads and very often acne This is most often particularly noticeable in the "T" zone. It's enough to make you dislike having your image captured in photos, and there' s the "uncontrollable" glow.
However, having oily skin is not the worst thing in the world. Sebum is a protective layer. Oily skin, thanks to the "excess protection", is quite thick and very resistant to external factors (such as frost, wind, sun, etc.). Much later, signs of aging will appear on it.
Neglecting this type of complexion can lead to the fact that the skin becomes dull, gray, and enlarged pores become very noticeable.
Oily skin care
The primary goal of people with oily skin is to eliminate shine by drying the skin. Reaching for products created for this purpose, often washing the face to remove the sebum layer from the surface of the skin, we can ... only "irritate" our skin. Skin that is heavily dried out will defend itself against this process. Why? Sebum is the skin's protective layer. Its job is to protect. As a result, we can worsen the situation - seborrhea will be even more intense.
Oily skin prefers creams with a light texture. A product that is too heavy can clog the pores and cause more harm than good. Also remember that all skin types need moisturizing. Oily skin is no exception. Excess sebum, which is a natural lubricant of our skin, on the surface of the epidermis does not guarantee that the deeper layers of the skin are not dry. When looking for the right day care product, pay attention to the fact that, in addition to the repeatedly promised "matting", it also moisturizes and regulates the secretion of sebum.
You probably already know that our skin uses the active ingredients of night creams most actively. When our body is resting, night care products can work, so it's worth choosing them well. One of the basics of caring for oily skin is exfoliation of dead epidermis cells, because in combination with sebum and daily pollutants from the air they create ideal conditions for the multiplication of bacteria.
