What Causes Your Skin to be Oily?

Skin - the largest organ of your body, has its own mechanism to hydrate and nourish itself. The sebaceous glands present underneath the pores secrete a type of natural oil called sebum. Even though this secretion is essential for the wellbeing of your skin, its overproduction can lead to oiliness. With the summer approaching, it is that time of the year again to get a HydraFacial in South Surrey. You can get this done at our White Rock spa and prevent your skin from becoming an oily mess. Characteristics of oily skin Depending on the amount of sebum secreted, you can determine your skin type as either oily or dry or, in some cases, as a combination type. To identify oily skin, you should look out for the following red flags: Skin looks too shiny, which, over the day, tends to turn greasy. Makeup seems to slide off your face and doesn't last as long as it should. The appearance of blackheads, pimples and different types of acne. Enlarged pores on the T-zone of your face (forehead, nose and chin, which are commonly the oiliest part of the face). Factors that add to the oiliness of the skin While the skin secreting oil is a natural phenomenon, there are several other factors that affect and regulate it as well. Some of these include: Genetics - Some people may inherit the oiliness of their skin from their parents. It is genetically linked and is passed on from one generation to the next. Age - Younger people, especially those in their teens and 20s, tend to have more oily skin. Even though there is no way that one will grow out of this condition, with age, the production of sebum decreases. Ageing skin has slower sebaceous glands, and hence, the overall production of oil is reduced. Geography and season - Hot and humid places can lead to additional oiliness of the skin. The season can affect the skin as well. Summer is a harder time of the year for those with oily skin as compared to fall, winter or spring. Size of the pores - The size of the pores on your skin can increase due to many factors like age, weight gain/loss or even previous episodes of breakouts. Larger pores lead to more oil secretion and, in turn, cause oily skin. Side effects of skincare products - Using the wrong type of skincare products can also lead to your skin becoming oily. It is important to know what your skin type is and use products accordingly. It is difficult to differentiate between combination skin and oily skin, and this confusion often leads to the misuse of products. Not following a skincare routine - Not washing and exfoliating your skin regularly can lead to an increase in the amount of oil buildup. Our South Surrey spa provides HydraFacial, which helps to control oily skin. Our HydraFacial White Rock and HydraFacial Morgan Creek treatment are two other great options for locations where this service is delivered by professionals.
