Deine Haut, Dein Typ: Ölige Haut

Your skin, your type: Oily skin

Each of us is unique, just like our skin. Depending on what skin type we are, the skin has different requirements. The care that works optimally for one person can be a disaster for another. Only if you know your own skin type, what is good for it and how to best care for it. In today's blog post we will cover oily skin type.

Characteristics of oily skin

Oily or greasy skin occurs when the sebaceous glands in the skin produce too much sebum. The secretion is actually intended to protect our skin from dirt and other environmental influences. Too much of a good thing than needed leads to oily skin. People with this skin type are particularly prone to blemishes and pimples in the T-zone, i.e. on the forehead, nose and chin. Other characteristics include enlarged pores, an oily sheen and a skin color that tends to be slightly paler because the blood supply to the skin is somewhat poorer.

The right care

The best approach to preventing pimples is, ideally, to prevent them from forming in the first place. Nutrition makes a big contribution to this. A balanced, healthy diet can play a large part in the appearance of your skin. Long-term excessive consumption of junk food, ready meals, too much alcohol or sugar quickly reflects on the skin. The magic formula for caring for oily skin is: cleanse, clarify, nourish. Daily, thorough cleansing can prevent impure skin. But make sure not to cleanse your skin more than twice. What you should definitely avoid is squeezing any pimples. The pressure creates small wounds that become infected and, in the worst case, can lead to scarring. If you have minor blemishes, you can try to get to the spot using cleaning products. If you have severe impurities or even acne, you should consult a dermatologist.
