Oily skin: care tips

Do you know what type of skin you have? Sometimes it is difficult to judge which type our skin belongs to, so for this reason we have prepared a simple and clear guide that will help you confirm if your skin is indeed oily. Find out everything about oily skin - what are the characteristics of oily skin, how to deal with the challenges of this skin type and which care products to choose.

How to recognize oily skin?

Oily skin type is characterized by excessive production of sebum (seborrhea) and visible pores. It is very easy to recognize it by the greasy shine that is present throughout the day on the whole face, and to the touch, the greasy mark remains on the hand. Pores are generally very clear, enlarged, and in some cases clogged. Oily skin is more likely to develop comedones and inflammatory acne, so such skin is often accompanied by irregularities.

How to take care of oily skin?

With oily skin type, it is important to strive to balance the amount of sebum secreted, i.e. to establish the flow of sebum from the follicles and to normalize the rate of desquamation, so that the pores do not become clogged - which is a prerequisite for the development of acne. For this reason, oily skin prefers light, fast-absorbing, moisturizing textures, regular and gentle cleansing, and the use of chemical peeling.

Instead of a classic cream, for daily care of oily skin, we suggest a serum emulsion such as Hydra B , which intensively moisturizes and prevents dehydration, does not clog pores and does not leave a heavy feeling on the face, or light serum emulsion Spectra, which at the same time has a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect on acne-prone skin. If clogged pores are present, it is definitely recommended to use a chemical peel (exfoliant).

Oily skin with clogged pores will benefit from the use of salicylic acid, which is the only lipophilic acid, that is, a fat-soluble acid, and effectively penetrates sebum and unclogs pores. Clarion serum or Clarion 2% BHA cleanser are ideal treatment products in the care routine of oily skin with clogged pores. Heavy textures and too many layers are by no means recommended for oily and breakout-prone skin.

For skin that produces too much sebum and is prone to acne, an additional recommendation is the occasional use of a clay mask in the facial care routine. The Volcanica mask contains a combination of powerful high-quality clays that act as adsorbents, attract surface impurities and clean pores without drying.

Can oily skin be dehydrated?

It is an interesting fact that the oily skin type is often dehydrated due to improper, aggressive cleaning or excessive exfoliation of the skin.

Skin dehydration can occur on any skin type due to transepidermal moisture loss, even oily skin. If the skin has become dehydrated (which we will recognize by surface tightness and shallow lines), then it is necessary to supply it with an adequate level of moisture using moisturizers such as hyaluronic acid, glycerol and panthenol. Humectants or humectants are smart ingredients that attract and bind water to skin cells and maintain optimal skin moisture. Care that includes a combination of moisturizers and neutral emollients is ideal for dehydrated skin.
