Acne breakouts and excessive oil or ‘shine’ can be partially due to overactive sebum glands. Harsh products, sometimes aimed at ‘targeting acne’ can actually make the skin worse by causing inflammation in the skin which then induces more oil production. This causes larger pores, redness and visible ‘shine’. The best tips to avoid these things are to avoid strong exfoliating products as these will inflame the surface of the skin and change the structure of the uppermost layers. Many people assume that by trying to ‘dry out’ the skin, the oil production will reduce, but you can actually exacerbate the situation by reducing the skin’s ability to heal itself, which frequently results in greater oil production, not less. The most accurately formulated products can be purchased from a specialist skin clinic and they are often much less expensive than the ‘advertised brands’ featured in your local shops. For any specific queries on this topic please email email@example.com and I will be happy to assist further.
