Q: Why is my skin so oily?
Sebum, a natural oil produced by sebaceous glands in the skin, is actually very helpful. In fact, sebum is a natural lubricant, preventing skin from looking dry and wrinkled. Problems arise when the glands are overactive and produce too much sebum.
What causes the body to produce more sebum than needed? Various studies have linked several factors to overactive sebaceous glands. First, many skin products contain harsh ingredients which strip the skin of its natural oil. This has a reverse effect as it causes the body to compensate by producing MORE OIL. Another factor contributing to sebum over-production is hormonal activity. As certain hormones in the body interact with various enzymes, a biological message is sent to the glands, stimulating them to produce additional sebum.
Q: What is the best kind of face wash for acne prone or oily skin?
The best face wash for acne prone or oily skin should be mild and sulfate-free; a face wash that will not strip your skin of vital moisture. This is the first step to moderate your skin's sebum production. Also, studies have shown that the complex of ingredients in Silver Wash are effective in regulating the enzyme-hormone interaction. This results in a more controlled production of sebum and decrease clogged pores and acne.
Sonya Dakar also highly recommends daily use of a light moisturizer to keep skin hydrated and protected. This is especially true in cold or dry climates.
