Why is it OK to use Facial Oil on Oily Skin?
In previous posts, we’ve talked about how to treat oily skin and incorporate our products to your routine and we also discussed about the differences of skin types that triggers acnes.
There’s a lot of misconceptions about how oil based products will make your skin greasy, break you out and using oil free products are a better choice for your oily skin.
What causes Oily Skin?
Do you know our skin type is hereditary? If one of your parents had an oily skin with large pores, then most likely you will too. You may get a mix of both worlds if one of your parents had a drier skin.
Excess oil can result from overactive sebaceous glands or imbalance hormones. Usually this could also mean that you might have some deficiencies in linoleic acid productions. This can lead to clogging of pores and subsequently a place for bacteria to breed. A simple combination of how acnes started.
The good news is with proper skincare routine, your oily skin can be under control and in fact will age much slower than normal dry skin!
So why oil-based products can be good for oily skin?
We’ve talked about how cleansing oil helps to cleanse your skin in our skincare tips. The cleansing oil will attract the sebum and yucky stuff inside the pores out of the way and it does not strip off your natural oil which can cause an overactive sebaceous glands.
Using a well balanced facial oil can assist in hydration and protecting your skin barrier function. Many oily skins tends to dehydrated as we continue to exfoliate or scrub our grit away. Our skin needs to maintain the hydration with the right amount of level without our sebaceous glands thinking that we are lack of it. Our skin needs moisture to help to activate our natural enzymes in the epidermis that allow our dead skin cell to sheds off!
Our Facial Oil is made of a well balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty oils with fermentation process – to hydrate and protect our skin. We think it will be great for all skin types!
