Some people are genetically predisposed to skin that produces more sebum throughout the day. The word “sebum” should not have a negative connotation, because without it, your skin would be completely unprotected.
Sebum production or “oil” on your skin can vary according to climate, age, stress and other factors – including poor choice of personal hygiene products regardless of skin type.
Do you know the difference between hydrated skin and oily skin?
Hydration = retention of water molecules in the skin.
Oil = excess sebum produced by the skin.
Even if you have oily skin, you should still use a moisturizer. The reason is simple: when your skin is properly hydrated, a protective layer is formed against external factors (cold, wind, pollution), reducing the need to produce excessive sebum to fill the role of the “protector”.
What happens when your skin is not properly hydrated?
It produces more oil to compensate for the lack of hydration. So many people just have very oily skin without really knowing why.
If you are experiencing this, try moisturizing your skin, and gradually the problem will decrease. We’re not suggesting that you load your skin with super oily creams, you have to find a product that suits your skin type.
Today there are many options on the market (lotion, gel, oil-free cream), including some that promise to leave your skin “matte” all day.
If you think your problem is very serious and are having difficulty finding a suitable product it is best to consult a dermatologist. Another tip: before going out to buy an expensive cream that guarantees perfect skin in a few days, ask for a sample and test it in the store.
We hope we have broken this “taboo” about not using daily moisturizer if you have oily skin, because hydration is as important as cleaning and sunscreen.
