Oily skin is common, especially on the face and scalp. Results from excessive activity of the sebaceous glands that produce too much sebum.
The oily skin is characterized by excessive activity of the sebaceous glands that produce quantities of unnecessary fat, conducive to the formation of cutaneous imperfections.
Oily skin is a skin type that is characterized by excess sebum and, consequently, brightness, especially in the ‘T-zone’ (forehead, nose and chin). It is a skin that is thicker and more irregular to the touch, whose pores are enlarged and visible. Oily skin is not necessarily a skin with acne, but the excess sebum is a necessary condition for its development.
The seborrhea, at the level of the scalp, makes the hair oily.
WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIAL CARE TO TREAT OILY SKIN?
1. CLEAN THE SKIN WITH GENTLE, SPECIFIC FOR OILY SKIN
The skin always reacts the opposite of what is desired: the more vigorously if you try to remove the sebum, the more the skin produces to replace it.
Thus, it is important to use products specially designed for oily skin, without being too aggressive. The ideal is to water casein for a cleaning with cotton, or gel to clean with and rinse with water.
It is essential not to forget the late-night cleaning, whether or not you have makeup to remove, because it removes impurities accumulated throughout the day, as well as the cleaning in the morning. Both of which should be made gently.
2. USE A DAILY CARE MOISTURISER, THE REAL SOLUTION TO THE SUCCESS OF THE TREATMENT
Do not leave to moisturize oily skin, but with tailored products. Without moisturizing, dry skin, gets more dry in the same way that the oily skin produces even more oil to combat the dehydration.
However, it should not be used a moisturizing cream to not exacerbate the level of oiliness. If you are using a moisturizer that is not oil-free, ie without the component oily, this cream will probably worsen the condition of your skin.
Must then be selected moisturizing products with action mattifying. On oily skin work well the lotions, the séruns and the products in the gel.
3. ADOPT SPECIFIC PRODUCTS FOR OILY SKIN AND MAKEUP DOES NOT COMEDOGÉNICA
The makeup is a headache for those who have oily skin because it is not easy to keep it intact for a long time. The trick goes for choosing products that are able to remain fixed on the skin.
The choice of the cosmetic is essential to keep the skin clean and free of oil. There are many products: designated as oil-free (oil-free), anti-shine (anti-glare), regulators of the oil and, also, wipes or absorbents of oils that help to solve the problem at least for a few hours. There are also the post fasteners and the primer, which set the makeup, leaving the skin shine-free.
The choice of the base should also be carried out with appropriate counselling, as this should have a texture adapted to oily skin, without being too occlusive, clogging pores.
4. PROTECT THE SKIN FROM THE SUN, WHICH, CONTRARY TO GENERAL THOUGHT, IS THE ENEMY OF OILY SKIN
Sunscreen is essential in the daily routine of all skin types, without exception for the oily skin. In this type of skin is only essential to opt for a product with a texture adapted and with effect touch dry.
In fact, this type of cream will help control the oil that inevitably arises from exposure to the sun, providing up to a better overall appearance to the skin. The sunscreen gel-cream are usually the most pleasant.
5. EXFOLIATION AND MASKS PURIFICANTES AND “DETOX” ARE FRIENDS OF OILY SKIN
The excess sebum produced keeps the dead cells on the surface of the skin, resulting in acne, blackheads and blocked pores.
Although exfoliation is compulsory, on oily skins makes it even more imperative to renew the epidermis. Has is to choose scrubs-specific (the best are at the base of salicylic acid) that are not too aggressive and masks purificantes to keep the skin clean.
