What is an oily skin?
This type of skin has sebaceous glands excess sebum. Sebum is essential because it is one of the principals of the hydrolipidic film to assure protection and suppleness to the skin. When its production is unbalanced, the pores get blocked, stifling the skin that thickens and start shining. Pimples, blackheads and other imperfections can appear. Be careful then of aggressive products that pushes the skin to protect itself by producing more sebum, one of the best protective agents. That is the reason why a skincare adapted to your oily skin is important and avoid this vicious circle. The good news is, oily skin handles outside aggression very well and they tend to age better than any other skin types.
