So if you want to know more, follow the guide!
Oily Skin – Why?
Why do some of us suffer from the hassle of oily skin? The oily skin that can give us shiny skin is really not easy to manage and it is because of too much production of sebum. The skin thickens and this causes an excess of dead cells that clog the pores of the skin and thus appears the black spot on the oily skin. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the areas most affected by the oily skin are on your forehead, nose and chin. Well, it is because it is on these 3 zones that there are the most sebaceous glands.
Basically, sebum is very good for the skin because the skin needs it to be protected against external aggression and dry skin. The problem is when there is an imbalance the sebum can become a problem for the skin.
There may be more reasons for this excess of sebum:
– A hormonal imbalance
– Using too much or too thick makeup
– When the skin is cleaned too often and with bad product too aggressive, because the oily skin is a very fragile skin.
– The contraceptive pills that might not be suitable.
– Some diseases can cause oily skin.
For the teenager this excess of sebum happening to most of them because of the increase of the level of hormones.
But think again, not all oily skin will suffer from acne. Me for example, I have an oily skin but it is all smooth without any acne pimples or black spots on my skin .
