THE solutions for oily skin

Do you have skin that shines all day long? Imperfections often appear? So yes, you have oily skin. You have excess skin oil, which will create these famous imperfections. But there are not only negative aspects to having oily skin: you are lucky, this type of skin ages better!

WHAT IS OILY SKIN?

Oily skin is excess sebum skin. This will clog your pores and therefore create imperfections: blackheads, pimples and even sometimes acne. The skin shines a lot in the T zone. But beware, oily skin is no less fragile than another! Too often they are abused with an overdose of products that are too abrasive for the epidermis. The skin therefore feels attacked and rejects even more sebum again.

THE CAUSES OF OILY SKIN?

Oily skin can be a skin type by nature. But certain factors only further delay the rebalancing of the skin. 

External aggressions:
tobacco, pollution, excessive exposure to the sun can create this overflow of sebum,

Hormonal imbalance
can sometimes be the cause of excess shine,

A diet
too oily and too sweet
does not improve this type of skin,

The use of products that are too aggressive for the skin
boosts oily skin.

THE SIGNS OF OILY SKIN?

  • Your face is subject to brilliance, and not only on the T zone,
  • You have large pores and blackheads,  
  • You sometimes have small imperfections,
  • You do not have not clear skin.

REMEDIES FOR OILY SKIN

Food

  • Avoid eating too much fat and too sweet. Opt for a balanced diet. This will help you have smoother skin. Choose foods rich in vitamin A, B6 and omega-3 which are antioxidants for the body and skin.
  • Remember to hydrate yourself. Drinking water significantly improves the skin. 

Daily

  • Beware of the sun. In summer, your skin looks beautiful, but when you return from vacation, your pimples appear. Remember to protect yourself from the sun.
  • Take care of yourself, give yourself moments of calm and relax. Oily skin can be linked to stress.

CARE

  • Clean your skin and don't forget to remove your makeup.  
  • Hydrate your skin. Hydration is the basis of a beautiful skin texture.
  • Gently exfoliate your skin. Too often we tend to attack oily skin, favor clean, natural and non-aggressive products for the skin.
