Although oily skin is more common during adolescence, there are many women who suffer from it in adulthood. Dr. Gabriel Serrano, dermatologist and founder of Sesderma, explains that among the factors that can trigger oily skin in adults are "high levels of androgens, genetic predisposition, pollution, smoking, lack of facial care, stress , a poor diet and even certain medications such as antidepressants".
Oily skin is very easy to identify because it presents, especially in the T zone (forehead, nose and chin), an excess of sebum that results in unsightly shine. In addition, it usually has enlarged pores, blackheads (the famous pimples) and pimples. Not everything is inconvenient, because oily skin does not have as many wrinkles as dry skin. It is stronger and ages later.
One of the common mistakes we often make with oily skin is not moisturizing it. But according to Dr. Serrano, "the most important care is cleaning and hydration. For the latter, I recommend light and fluid textures, preferably in gel format." When caring for oily skin, you should always look for oil-free, non-comedogenic products (which prevent excess sebum production, which is responsible for clogging pores and making them look larger or blackheads appear. ), and if possible with a mattifying active ingredient. Here you have a selection of creams and serums for oily skin.
