A shiny film of oil covers the face. The sebum glands run at full speed and the overproduction of skin fat / sebum clogs the pores. Oily skin is an ideal source of nutritionoden for bacteria that can trigger inflammation in the sebum glands and thereby cause pimples and blackheads, also known as comedones. The skin shows only a few lines and wrinkles. The top layer of skin is often poorly supplied with blood and can therefore look pale and has a rather large-pored appearance.
Care for oily skin: In order to keep the pores free and prevent bacteria from multiplying, thorough cleaning is essential for oily skin. The cleaning should be thorough but gentle. Aggressive cleaners, too frequent washing or vigorous rubbing have a negative effect and should be avoided. The basis is to gently wash your face mornings and evenings with a pH-neutral cleaner. Then use a toner with slightly disinfectant properties. To remove dead skin cells, use an exfoliant once or twice a week. Afterwards, the skin looks forward to a water-based serum and light moisturizers or face oils.
