Treatments for Oily Skin at Brampton Cosmetic
If you have very oily skin, it is likely due to overactive sebaceous glands. These glands secrete sebum, an oily substance made up of mainly lipids or fat molecules along with other natural chemicals. Sebum helps to moisturize and protect the skin by coating it and preventing fungi and bacteria from entering the pores. Sebum is a normal and healthy occurrence, but if you have seborrhea, a condition characterized by excessively oily skin, it may lead to other skin issues like acne breakouts and pigmentation. Oily skin must be treated before treating any other skin conditions one may have. Seborrhea can also cause a shiny, greasy appearance on the skin that may lead to redness or flaky, patchy skin. Oily skin requires specific products like a moisturizer for oily skin and other treatments based on your skin concerns.
