Oily skin on the face - how to care for it?

Content:

Oily skin is a common skin problem, manifested by increased production of sebum or sebum oil. But believe it or not - increased sebum isn't such a bad thing, as it helps to soften our skin and prevent it from drying out.

The problem arises when the sebaceous glands produce too much sebum or oil, which leads to clogged pores, excessive shine on the skin and an increased risk of acne.

How does oily skin appear on the face and why?

Oily skin can most often be identified when:

  • your face has an oily glow during the day
  • your face is oily an hour or two after cleansing
  • you feel as if your make-up is "slipping" off your face
  • you have enlarged pores, especially in the T-zone (nose, forehead and chin)
  • blackheads, pimples or acne are a regular occurrence in the areas of the face where the skin is most active in secreting oil

Why does some people's skin get oily faster than others? 

Several factors are responsible for this: the first are genetic (for example, if either of your parents has oily skin, then there's a good chance you will have oily skin yourself) and hormonal (endocrine disruptions), which make the sebaceous glands particularly active. These causes are the most difficult to treat, but there are solutions for this too.

Of course, they can also have an effect on the skin:

  • Inadequate diet, which includes a lot of processed foods, sugar, fried foods, red meat and dairy products
  • Increased stress
  • Not enough sleep
  • Use of inadequate cosmetics
  • Climate factors (if the climate where you live is hot and humid, your skin is more likely to produce more fat)

The importance of oily skin care: why shouldn't oily skin be overlooked?

Although oily skin is a problem that can have a negative impact on a person's appearance and self-image, it is important to understand that inadequate skin care can also lead to more serious skin problems.

Ignoring oily skin can lead to clogged pores, which usually trigger acne and inflammation, and excessive oiliness can also lead to increased sensitivity to irritation and allergic reactions. Proper skin care is therefore the key to preventing any further skin problems.

Basic care for oily skin: step by step

The good news about oily skin care is that you can keep your skin condition under control by designing your routine carefully and thoughtfully. How? With Hemptouch products!

  1. Cleansing

An important step in caring for oily skin is to cleanse thoroughly both morning and evening. Make sure you choose a gentle cleansing gel that does not dry out the skin and is free from artificial foams, alcohol, fragrances and other harmful additives. 

Our cleansing gel based on hemp hydrolate and chlorella algae is a great choice.

  1. Supporting the skin from the inside out

For more complex problems that last for a longer period of time, it is also a good idea to support the skin by taking CBD drops, which support the skin's balance from the inside out in a natural way.

Remember that the key to getting the results you want with oily skin is to insist on using the right products and having a good routine. And it's through consistent care that you can achieve clear, balanced and (healthier) skin that radiates confidence and well-being.
