Oily Skin and BreakoutsIntense lipid secretions often take place on the T-zone, nose, forehead and chin which may result in oily skin and breakouts as well as clogged pores. This can be resolved with a correct routine, remembering that over-zealous exfoliating can stimulate the glands which will intensify the secretions.
Controlling the symptoms of Oily and Breakout Prone Skin
Introduction to oily skin and breakouts and how to better control symptoms
Severe sebum secretions often take place on the T-zone (nose, forehead and chin) which may result in clogged and enlarged pores along with unwanted oiliness in thicker skins. This can easily be resolved with a correct cleansing and hydrating routine, remembering that overzealous exfoliation can stimulate the glands which will intensify the sebum secretions.
Breakout concerns may be exacerbated by the overproduction of sebum in combination with redundant skin cell build-up. This leads to the creation of clogged pores resulting in the inflammation along with blackheads, whiteheads, papules and pustules.
Enlarged pores are often associated with an oily prone skin type. These pores can have a more visible appearance when incorrect product protocols are adhered to. The key in improving enlarged pores is to keep your pores clean from surface impurities and a build-up of dead skin cells which may block your pores creating blackheads. Look for products that offer you deep cleansing benefits and ensure to exfoliate your skin regularly to prevent dead skin cell build-up.
