Oils produced by our body help keep our skin healthy but, too having too much of these oils can leave your face looking oily. This occurs when the sebaceous glands are over active and produce excessive amounts of oil. When you have excess oil in your skin it can lead to enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, blemishes and acne flare-ups.
Oily skin is shown by its shiny, greasy appearance which can reappear quite quickly after washing or using make-up. It means you're especially susceptible to clogged pores, blackheads and a buildup of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. By no means is having oily skin a bad thing though, since your skin is less prone to wrinkling or other signs of ageing, because the oil helps to keep the needed moisture locked in.
When it comes to treating oily skin, the aim is to remove the excess surface oils without completely removing the skin lipids. Over-stimulation of the skin, such as using too much product or having harsh treatments that upset the balance of the skin's acid mantle, can lead to excess sebum production.
Oily Skin: What's the treatment like?
NOTE - Severe degreasing treatments can foster an actual worsening of sebum secretion.
Medik8 Professional Treatment's Beta Facial is designed to normalize sebum secretion, alleviate inflammation and reduce irritation whilst improving the skin’s hydration, texture and tone.
Medik8 Solution's Medik8 Acne Solution is designed to use on individual blemishes or larger problem areas. It enables spot fighting actives (salicylic acid) penetrate deep in your pores supported by niacinamide using its powerful anti-inflammatory properties to reduce redness.
Hydradermabrasion is ‘dry method’ of skin rejuvenation using abrasive aluminium crystals. Rather than using crystals, Hydradermabrasion uses a specially designed tip to exfoliate the skin and also incorporates serums which work to cleanse, hydrate and moisturise at the same time as the exfoliation takes place.
The provider of any product ranges or treatments for dry skin should tell you whether it's suitable for your skin.
