Characteristics

Oily skin type is characterised by a shiny appearance, thick epidermis, sallow colour, open pores and being prone to comedones. Excessive oiliness caused by overactive sebaceous glands is more common in younger skins but can occur at any time.Acne is an inflammation of the sebaceous glands. It is characterised by the appearance of comedones, papules, pustules and, in extreme cases, nodules and cysts on the skin.

Solution

Treatments for oily skin are aimed at balancing and regulating the sebaceous glands’ activity to gently remove the dead skin cells which block the pores, therefore enabling the efficient draining of the oil. The purpose of the treatments is to prevent inflammation, to shrink the enlarged pores, and to heal and rejuvenate the skin.

The specialised products for treating oily skin are based on plant extracts such as eucalyptus, clove, mint, chamomile, hamamelis, arnica, calamine, allantoin, and camphor, which have antiseptic and healing properties. Minerals such as sulphur and zinc are also used to help absorb excessive sebum on the skin surface.Other effective ingredients used in advanced products for oily skin are probiotics. The probiotic bacteria are essential in order to fight diseases that are caused by bacterial inflammations, and to protect the skin immunity function. Food that contains probiotics has long been known as an essential supplement for the protection and the internal balance of the body. Research has now shown that applying them to the skin through cosmetic products improves protecting, balancing, and nourishing abilities of the skin.

Treating oily and acne prone skin regulates and balances sebaceous glands activity in order to reduce secretion of the sebum and on the other hand prevent lack of moisture in the skin. Using advanced aesthetic treatments such as peels are quite common. Over the past few years, innovative peeling treatments have been developed, which enable the rejuvenation and healing of the skin. Natural peelings are based on alpha and beta hydroxy acids, retinol, and also include other active ingredients such as vitamin C, which increase production of new cells, balance the skin, and enable continuous improvement of skin appearance.
