What is oily skin?

Oily skin can be characterised as feeling greasy with a visible shine. It is a side effect of the sebaceous (oil producing) glands in the skin being over stimulated and producing too much sebum. Sebum is the waxy, oily substance that protects and hydrates the skin, however too much sebum can lead to an oily complexion, clogged pores, open pores and acne.

What can cause oily skin symptoms?

  • Genetic – Most people with oily skin will have a parent who suffered with it
  • Hormones – Hormones and stress levels can increase the production of sebum in the body
  • Products – Not using the right products on the skin can make the condition worse

Oily skin requires constant management with daily skincare that reduces the sebum production using ingredients such as salicylic, lactic and glycolic acid.

Oily Skin FAQ

Daily cosmeceutical skincare (such as Medik8 & ZO) is very important in the management of oily skin as this is necessary to control the production of sebum in the skin. 

Monthly HydraFacial's are also recommended to deep clean the skin and restore natural skin cycles.

Avoid using high street moisturiser on the skin as this will clog pores and lead to blackheads and acne. Use cosmeceutical skincare products including salicylic and glycolic acid daily.
