Oily Skin Type
Skin Type is defined by two things: genetics and oil production. Genetics predetermine skin type, while oil production changes based on hormone levels. The oil production increase is first noticeable when going through puberty. During puberty your hormone levels rise, the most common being testosterone. Testosterone converts to di-hydrotestosterone in the sebaceous glands and stimulates the glands to produce oil. Overuse or using incorrect products, stress, diet, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, menopause and medications can also cause an increase in hormone levels, thus causing a change in oil production.
Often, oily skin is associated with a shiny look, enlarged pores, and a higher chance of impactions, blackheads and breakouts.
It is important to teach clients about the products they should and should not be using. Many people with oily skin choose products that will dry out their skin and make it feel ‘tight’. Those products will not help regulate oil production, but will cause the sebaceous glands to secrete more oil. Instead of using products that dry out the skin, recommend products that have oil-controlling ingredients along with hydrating properties and antioxidants.
A client with oily skin needs to use the same core regimen as all other skin types, the 4 products are: cleanser, toner, moisturizer and spf. So, yes- even for Oily Skin- moisturizer is necessary! When you don’t use a moisturizer, you are not delivering enough hydration to the skin, which in turn signals more oil production. At Glo Skin Beauty, the focus when treating oily skin is to regulate oil production and help decongest follicles with antibacterial, purifying and oil-controlling agents.
