What is oily skin?

What is the definition of an oily skin type?

Oily skin is a result of the skin producing excess sebum. Sebum is a natural waxy textured substance made of fats. The severity of this skin type varies per person and even per season. It is produced naturally by the body to keep your skin hydrated. Oily skin results from your body creating excess sebum that is more than your skin, hair, or scalp requires. While sebum is perfectly normal, the skin can begin to create excess, resulting in a greasy, waxy-like texture. 

What symptoms that you have may mean you have oily skin?

  • Greasy appearance on the face & scalp
  • Clogged pores and or blackheads
  • Overly treated skin
  • Larger, more apparent pores
  • Consistent breakouts, aka. pimples 

What may cause Oily skin 

  • Diet
  • Hormones 
  • Over-treated skin 
  • Mis-matched skincare for your skin type
  • Over cleansing (or drying out of the skin)

How can SumaNurica help dry Oily skin concerns?

It's extremely common for those with oily skin to avoid moisturising or skincare designed to hydrate your skin. In many cases, this can trigger the skin to intuitively produce excess sebum to compensate for the stripping of the oils. It's understandable why one with oily skin would be reluctant to moisturise, presuming that the skin needs to be cleaned, not hydrated. Quite often, this adds to the problem; rather than allowing the skin health to resume to a normal state, the skin will need to produce excess oil to bring it back to its normal state. Water-based skincare, designed to hydrate one's skin, can drastically improve the skin's intuition to produce excess oil. 

How can SumaNurica improve Oily skin symptoms?

Our Collagen Essence Hydrating Face Mask can be directly applied to the dermis and harmoniously sit within the skin's outer dermis cells. Our Collagen Essence Synthetic protein has been designed to be homogeneous with human skin. Its water-locking effect keeps the skin hydrated, preventing the skin from drying out, causing it to 'over compensate' by producing excess oils that lead to the skin being defined as oily.
