Oily Skin

Skincare Q&A

Sebum plays a crucial role in the wellbeing of the skin - it strengthens its protective barrier, locking in moisture and warding off microbial infections. Nonetheless, in some, it is secreted in excess at which point it results in oily skin which then becomes a problem. How to control the sebum production of your skin and bring it back to balance? The solution may be simpler than you think.

Check if you are not overhydrating your oily skin.

Sometimes, when the problem of a too oily skin persists for a longer period of time and only seems to be getting worse, it all may be explained by the fact that you are overdrying your skin.

As mentioned previously, one of the sebum’s tasks is to complement the skin’s protective barrier which, amongst others, is responsible for locking the moisture within the skin layers. If the skin becomes drier, it automatically gets a signal that it should produce more sebum. Therefore, regardless of your other used products, you should invest in a great non-comedogenic moisturizer to balance your skin.
