Do you have an oily skin? In this case you probably often experience a shiny T-zone, spots and impurities. In addition, the pores are often enlarged and more visible if you have an oily skin. Oily skin is caused by an overproduction of sebum. Sebum naturally protects our skin, but can cause the skin the appear shiny if it is not regulated in a proper way. A greasy layer is left on the face if there is too much sebum, which will cause the pores to clog. Hormones also play an important role in this process.
The result of excessive sebum production is acne, spots and shiny skin. Before applying a day cream, it is essential that you clean your skin in the morning and evening with a mild cleansing. Be careful not to exaggerate. Cleaning your skin too often, will make it dry. This will cause the skin to produce more sebum and make the skin even more oily. Then use a moisturising day cream that helps to regulate the sebum production and to restore the skin balance. Choose a water-based day cream or a mattifying and purifying day cream that is specially developed for your oily skin. We also offer a number of tinted day creams for oily skin. These care products helps treat the cause of your oily skin whilst also camouflaging spots and other impurities.
