Oil Control

Oily skin is caused by over-active sebaceous glands, that produce a substance called sebum, a naturally healthy skin lubricant.[1] When the skin produces excessive sebum, it becomes heavy and thick in texture. Oily skin is typified by shininess, blemishes and pimples. The oily-skin type is not necessarily bad, since such skin is less prone to wrinkling, or other signs of aging, because the oil helps to keep needed moisture locked into the epidermis (outermost layer of skin).

The negative aspect of the oily-skin type is that oily complexions are especially susceptible to clogged pores, blackheads, and buildup of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Oily skin can be sallow and rough in texture and tends to have large, clearly visible pores.

The goal of treating oily skin is to remove excess surface sebum without complete removal of skin lipids. Severe degreasing treatment can foster an actual worsening of sebum secretion, which defeats the aim of the cleansing. A method of cleansing oily skin is to cleanse with a natural face cleanser formulated especially for oily skin. Oily skin products should contain very little natural oils. They should not contain waxes or other synthetic lipid agents that could aggravate the oily condition of the skin. A toning lotion should also be formulated especially to help balance and hydrate oily skin. Some cleansing products have lower concentrations of hydroxy acids, which remove dead cells from the upper levels of the stratum corneum. Those products should be used on a regular basis to work adequately.

Oily skin, caused by overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands in the skin can leave you with shininess, clogged pores, and blemishes. Sebum is a naturally healthy skin lubricant, and those who have oily skin tend to have less wrinkles because the excess oil helps lock in moisture to keep skin looking young. You can have too much of a good thing, though. You may have young looking skin, but it can be prone to breakouts, especially in the summer.

During the summer when weather is warm, your skin naturally produces more sebum. For people with oily skin, this exacerbates an already sticky skin situation. Since sebum is a good thing in limited quantities, the goal of treating oily skin is to remove excess oils without removing all of it. You want to keep that protective lipid barrier that actually helps skin stay young and healthy. It's important to use gentle products to remove dirt and oil because harsh products can actually increase sebum production and make the condition worse.

Treating oily skin requires skincare products specifically designed for oily skin. Targeted treatments include products that remove excess dirt and oil gently without disrupting the lipid layer. When looking for skincare products to treat oily skin, it's important to avoid ones that contain oil, waxes, or synthetic lipid agents that may irritate the already delicate balance of the skin. Low concentrations of hydroxy acids are good because they exfoliate (remove) dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to help unclog pores.

For oily skin, we really like Jan Marini Bioglycolic Oily Cleansing Gel. This gel cleanser goes deep inside pores to remove dirt, debris, and oil for a super clean and healthy complexion. The beauty of this product is with continued use skin is less oily and has a smoother, more refined texture.
