Oily Skin

Explained by Dr. Jadoon

Oily skin is a common skin concern. Almost everyone experiences oily skin at some point in time. Oily skin is usually transient but some people may experience prolonged spells of oily skin for months and years.
What Causes Oily Skin?
Excess production of oil by the skin cells (Sebaceous glands) is the reason why people experience oily skin.

There are several contributing factors. These include:

  • Genetic predisposition.
  • Excessive UV Exposure (sun damage).
  • Hormonal fluctuation (females).
  • Possible gut health and microbiome irregularity.
  • Excessive use of make-up and make-up wipes.
  • Alcohol and cigarette smoking.
How to Manage Dry Skin.
  • Eliminating or reducing any triggering factors (mentioned above) is always the first step.
  • The primary aim of any skin treatment or skincare products is to regulate the activity of the oil producing glands (sebaceous glands) in the skin.
  • In-clinic treatments include professional peels, facials, laser and light therapies.
  • Avoiding any make-up or other products on the skin which impair the functionality of oil glands is very important.
How to Regulate Oil Production in the Skin.

Medical-grade, cosmeceutical skin products can effectively regulate the physiology of skin cells. Skincare products helpful in this situation are:

  • Gentle Make-up remover
  • Exfoliating cleansers
  • Facial Masks
  • Topical serums and creams with active ingredients such as AHA and BHA

Important:

  • It is important to understand that skincare products for any skin concern, including dry skin have to be used regularly (as recommended by product usage guidelines) for optimum results.
  • We recommend using the products for a minimum of 6 months and avoiding any triggering factors to see clinically visible results.
