The Signs Of Greasy Skin

Blocked pores, dull skin, uneven skin, blackheads and whiteheadsall signs of congested skin and often affecting not just teenagers, but adults too. The pore plug is a combination of oils, sebum and dead skin cells. Excess skin oil, sebum and toxins that are expelled through the skin are often an underlying issue. Skin Oil Sebum: excess oil and sebum production by the skin will contribute to clogging pores and encourage the growth of skin bacteria.

Toxic Congestion: blood and lymph supply the skin with nutrition. Dead Skin Cells: Each 3 or 4 weeks the skin replenishes the skin cells. This natural process creates a layer of dead skin cells over the surface of the skin. If not removed, the dead skin cells create dull looking skin. Good Skin Care is essential to controlling very oily skin: The key culprits in skin congestion are products that contain petrochemical based oils as they have an occulusive effect, stopping the skin from breathing and blocking pores.

Regular gentle exfoliation: one way to minimise congestion and clogged pores is to ensure the top layer skin remains clear by regularly removing the dead skin cells. Regular use of facial exfoliants or scrubs will help clear dead skin cells that block pores. A harsh scrub may actually scour the surface of your skin much like a scrubbing brush and this can actually damage skin cells.

Fruit Enzyme Peels: enzyme peels are another way of clearing dead skin cells. This results in increased flexibility of the skin as well as decreased formation of large dry skin flakes at the surface of the skin.
