Shine in the spotlight
Oily skin is the result of particularly active sebaceous glands. They go overboard! This overproduction of sebum (hyperseborrhoea) can increase the problem of blemishes.
All the same, oily skin also has some advantages. As its hydrolipid film is heightened, its barrier role against external aggressors is particularly effective. The skin is therefore better protected, wrinkles are less marked and its ages more slowly.
What you should do
What you should avoid
- Overdrying processes which can over strip the skin of natural oils.
- Overly oily creams, overly rich textures and mineral oils and instead choose mattifying moisturisers and products based on plant oils.
- Scrubs with sharp grains that will irritate the skin and provoke a self-defence reaction, accelerating sebum production.
- The sun, which can dry out the skin and lead to the appearance of premature skin ageing.
