Cleaning is the main step that you should always include in your daily routine (day and night). You can choose to wash your face with gel or mousse, or clean your face with micellar water. You can use a make-up remover and then clean with another care. The important thing is to clean your face and remove excess sebum, impurities, make-up.

During the week, choose a moment for yourself and exfoliate to help eliminate dead cells and accelerate the normal process of cell renewal in your skin! It's also important to apply a mask to balance your skin, whether you want to cleanse more deeply and close the pores, or you wish to hydrate or brighten up… just choose and change!

Daily after cleaning your face apply a serum that will penetrate your skin deeply and act more effectively, then a moisturizing cream that will restore the hydrolipidic film and protect your skin!

Don't finish your day routine without applying a sunscreen, which is essential to prevent photoaging.

This routine applies to all skin types, but mostly important is to know how to choose the right products for your skin's needs!

UNDERSTANDING ADULT OILY SKIN

 


 What causes adult oily skin?

Oily skin is a common dermatologic concern that can be caused by a variety of factors like genetics, hormones, stress, diet, and humidity. 
Oily skin occurs when glands in the skin produce too much sebum. The sebaceous glands are small glands that produce sebum, an oily substance that coats and protects the skin, and are located all over the skin, except the palms and soles of the feet. Those most likely to produce too much oil are located in the scalp, face, and upper body. When the body produces too much sebum, the skin can become oily.

 

Although the rate of sebum production is highly variable between individuals and the justification remains to be fully elucidated, there are risk factors for oily skin:

  • Male sex
  • Premenopausal women during ovulation
  • Spring or summer seasons or humid climate: you may be more prone to oily skin during humid summer months compared with dry winter months. Those who live in humid climates may be at higher risk of developing oily skin
  • African American descent
  • Conditions with elevated androgens (chronic conditions affecting hormone levels). which are hormones, such as testosterone. Testosterone is produced in the sebaceous glands, and studies have linked higher levels of hormones to an increase in oil production. Female hormones like estrogen are associated with lower oil production in the skin.
  • Genetics may play a role in sebum production: usually, the larger your pores, the more oil your skin will produce.



 At what age does oily skin go away?

The amount of sebum a person produces varies throughout the course of his or her life. Shortly after birth, when there is a rather high production of sebum, levels of sebum produced decrease until puberty, when it drastically increases. Sebum can mix with dead skin cells and other debris, which may block pores. This can lead to skin conditions such as acne. Teenage acne tends to be worse in people with oily skin and usually lasts for 5 to 10 years, normally going away during the early 20s. It occurs in both sexes, although teenage boys tend to have the most severe cases. The decline of sebum will occur only after menopause for women and around the sixth to the seventh decade for men.



 How can I control oily skin?

  • Wash gently 

One of the most effective ways to manage oily skin is by washing your face twice daily.
Use a gentle cleanser and warm water every morning and night; wash again after a vigorous workout. 
Avoid soaps with fragrances, added moisturizers, or harsh chemicals, which can irritate or dry out the skin, making it respond by creating more sebum.
There is no need to wash more frequently since that could be irritating to the skin and produce more oil. 
When washing your skin, use gentle circular motions instead of scrubbing.

Oil Control
  • Moisturize after every wash

An important way to manage oily skin is to use a daily moisturizer. If your skin is overly dry, your body is stimulated to produce more oil to keep moisturized, moisturizing will also help prevent sebaceous glands from becoming overactive.
Choose a gentle, oil-free moisturizer with sunscreen and apply it every morning. Look for water-based versions labeled “oil-free” and “noncomedogenic.”

  • Try Clay Masks

These masks may be helpful in soaking up excess oil from your face. Depending on which type of clay you choose, the mask can draw oil out of the pores and is washed away when you rinse off the clay. 

  • Lifestyle Adjustments

Finding the right balance requires an understanding of the causes and treatments for oily skin. 
Having healthy skin is part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Follow a nutritional diet with plenty of whole grains, vegetables and pulses. Learn to de-stress and make sure you get enough sleep and exercise.



 Is it bad to have oily skin control?

Although an oversupply of sebum, however, can lead to a shiny, greasy complexion, acne breakouts, and skin irritation, our skin needs oil to moisturize and preserve it. The sebaceous glands play a vital role in the epidermal barrier and innate immunity, including lubrication for the skin, antibacterial properties, sun protection, inflammation regulation, and wound healing. People with oily skin tend to have thicker skin and fewer wrinkles. The key is to find the balance between having too much oil and maintaining your skin's natural moisture which is vital to its the skin's well-being.



 I'm going on holiday and sunscreen makes my skin break out - what should I do?

The use of sunscreen is crucial to reduce the aging effects of the sun and prevents lesions linked to photoaging. Many people with oily skin find that sunscreens can block their pores resulting in spots. Choose a mattifying sunscreen designed specifically for oily or combination skin.



 When to contact a dermatologist?

A person should seek professional advice whenever oily skin becomes a concern for them, either physically or psychologically, especially when it is affecting their self-esteem, failing to clear with the treatments they have tried over the counter, or leaving scars or dark marks (hyperpigmentation) on skin.
