The main reason for an oily skin is the overactivity of the sebaceous glands. Due to the fact that the skin secretes excess sebum, the face shines excessively and unsightly, the sebaceous glands clog over time, which causes the multiplication of bacteria responsible for the development of acne.
The overproduction of sebum is influenced by genes, digestive system and metabolism disorders, hormonal problems, stress, certain medications, stimulants, inadequate diet and improper skin care.
Therefore, it is worth taking care of oily skin with appropriate aesthetic medicine and cosmetology treatments. Such skin also requires proper hydration and lubrication. Any attempt to deprive it of the lipid layer, paradoxically, causes the glands to produce even more sebum, and then the skin condition deteriorates. It is much more advisable to exfoliate it gently, rather than drying it. The stratum corneum of the epidermis clogs the sebaceous glands and causes inflammation. In adulthood, the process of natural exfoliation of dead skin is slower, so it is worth supporting it regularly.
