TREATING OILY SKIN AT OCEREN SKIN CARE SPA

Why Oily Skin Happens

Oily skin is a common problem. But why is it so common? We asked ourselves the same question, and we were surprised by what we found out.

The root cause of oily skin lies in how your skin produces sebum. Sebum is the oil produced by glands in your skin that gives you a healthy complexion. Here’s where things get interesting: Sebum production depends on hormones called androgens—and these are different for men and women!

As you age, your body produces less androgen, which means that less oil is produced by your skin glands. This is why older people tend to have drier skin than younger people: as you get older, you produce less oil to keep your skin moisturized.

But what about those who are younger but still have oily skin? Well, according to our research, it seems that there are other factors at play here. One of these factors is genetics: some people just seem predisposed toward producing more sebum than others. Another factor might be the environment itself: if you live in a place with high humidity (for example), this will make it harder for your body to regulate its temperature and retain moisture—which will result in more oil production than usual.

2. Use a toner after cleansing your face with a mild cleanser.

4. Apply moisturizer after applying sunscreen to keep your skin hydrated all day long!
