Isn’t it refreshing to cleanse your face early in the morning?

You get excited putting products that are part of your skin care routine, especially the sunscreen that is of great importance because it helps protect our skin from the harmful rays of the sun. But for some, just after a few hours later, something will happen.

That is exactly the problem of many people, especially so to the teens. It is really feels greasy when your face begins to produce sebum. With that, I cannot stop singing this one:

“Shinning, shimmering, splendid.”

It shines like a diamond. But it is not funny for some. I am one of those who feel that this is a struggle. Kulang na lang ay magbilad ako sa araw at maglagay ng itlog sa mukha, baka sakaling maluto pa para may pakinabang naman, char. Baka mas lalo lang masira mukha ko at baka pumangit pa, joke ulit haha.

The question here is that, what causes oily skin?

Before diving deeper in this particular topic, let me just remind you that I am not an expert nor dermatologist. All these things I am telling here are just based on what I know and based on my research.

Everybody has oil in their skin and this is a fact. We have this so-called sebaceous gland which produces sebum that is otherwise known as natural oils. These natural oils keep our skin look healthy and hydrated. However, this gland can produce excess oils which make other’s skin very oily.

Because of that, breakouts are more likely to happen and that is something that most of us really do not want to happen. When sebum is mixed together with dead skin cells then gets stuck in our pores, a nightmare, I mean, breakout could happen.

Of course you get sad because who wouldn’t?

If you have an oily face too, these are the possible causes.

1. Genetics

If your mother or father has oily skin, there is a great possibility that you may have an oily skin too since it can be traced to our genes.

2. Age

A skin that is aging loses this so-called protein, for example collagen, making sebaceous glands slow down. That is why less sebum is produced by your skin as you age.

3. Where you live and the time of year.

The place where you live, including the time of year, could make an impact too. If you are living in a place where there is a hot climate, you tend to have oiler skin especially during summer.

4. Enlarged pores

Pores which are enlarged due to previous breakouts among other causes, more oil tend to be produced.

5. Using the wrong skin care products

Using products that aren’t really matched to your face could be a cause too. What is worse is that it may cause irritation too if you are using the wrong products. So before using a product, better consult first a dermatologist to know what type of product is good for your skin.

6. Overdoing your skin care routine

Everything that is done in excess is of no good. So, you must always remember to not overdo your skin care routine. What is suggested is that you only need to wash or cleanse your face twice a day. Again, do not overdo it.

7. Skipping your moisturizer

It is given that wearing a sunscreen is good to our skin to avoid the effect of the harmful rays of the sun. Applying moisturizer is helpful too. Without it, there is a chance that any skin type will dry out. For oily skin, lightweight, water-based moisturizers are recommended.

Final Thoughts:

Skin care routine is really important most especially if you have an acne-prone and sensitive skin. You really have to take care of your skin.

It is very important to know the things like this so that you may get an idea on what you should do and what is not, especially if you are planning to start a skin care routine.

Together, let us hope to have a healthy and hydrated skin by doing the right things!

See you again on my next article where I will be going to share home treatments that can be helpful for oily skin.

I was inspired to make this post because of kli4d’s article which you may read here: https://read.cash/@kli4d/hello-cutie-pimples-please-leave-me-alone-fa3e23e2

Very well explained! Sunscreen and moisturizer should be always part of someone's skincare routine. Make sure lang na non-comedogenic, hypo-allergenic, or basta hindi nacocontain ng mga harsh ingredients para di mairitate ang skin.
